May 4, 2012 in The PvdH View
Mexico Instagrammed. Going through my instagram feed this afternoon (while stuck in the eternal traffic of rush hour post torrential rain meets sleet), it really (really!) hit me how much my life has changed in just one month.
London to Mexico City. Boom. Swoosh. Swoon.
Heat means a little CH by Carolina Herrera jacket. Holly-Molly Bougainvillea (loads and loads of bougainvillea). La Catrina (The Elegant Lady). A PvdH fuchsia skirt. On my work table. A selection of pan dulce (sweet bread). Riding a bici-taxi. Jacarandas in full bloom. My favourite pair of Tod’s with Sass & Bide skinnies. Nopales (yes, we eat cacti!)*. Illesteva Frieda sunnies (need I explain how handy they’ve been?!)…. Oh and a rooster roaming outside a polleria (where they sell chicken meat) #Irony.
A 180° turn, that’s what it was. And I am truly grateful for what this opportunity has meant for my life and cannot wait to (really) show you more. (So thank you for bearing with me in this month of so-called ‘adaptation’).
*Which I used to highly dislike when I was younger… but I am feeling very patriotic as of late (and they are quite yummy with lemon and salt, I swear!).
