"" JAMIE SAYS DREAM: Blue is on my mind

Blue is on my mind

I have been thinking about blue for quite a while, but right now I'm really, really into it! And there is so many shades of blue! I think I will take out/make (and mabye buy) a lot of blue things in my home this year, and I have already started to wear more blue. I'm sure there will be more blue posts too :-)

blue is one of my favorites as well. right now i am really into turquoise, although i cannot really say if it suits me very well. i like dark colors in clothes - with black being the easiest (and best!).

I'm thinking black clothes, with turquoise earrings and a big turquoise ring... that would suit me, but I think just turquoise is too light for me. Plus the red hair... too much going on :) but the black would tone all of that down.

yes, I am packing, after my going away party last night I am back at filling a few boxes. Bathroom, desk, books, plus all the champagne and beer my friends brought last night :D

i have lost 30 lbs once... it gets so much easier once you start loosing ;-) Starting is hard, but sticking with it is much easier. I did Weight Watchers. Good luck with that! If you need support, let me know :)
