Life | HAAAAAAAAPPY NEW YEAR

Psynopsis Nicole Farhi Velvet Cocktail Dress Jil Sander T-Shirt Maruca Bag

I think what I really mean is content New Year. How weird would it be if we'd constantly be happy? Happy is for special occasions – contentness on the other hand, worth trying for every day.

BUT before I get all soppy and teary and philosophical ...
Fashionwise in 2011 I pledge to wear more colours, longer skirts (yeap, I’m gonna try the midi) and corduroy trousers. Bye bye 2010… You’ve been good. See you on the other side!

P.S. I've now changed this post about 100 times - taking out the grumpy 1st picture, putting it back in, adding some explanation that I'm not feeling well, deleting it again... It's becoming silly. New Year's Eve always feels like you need to be cheery and happy, and I'm finding this s.t.r.e.s.s.f.u.l. So, you go enjoy yourselves... I'll just sit on the sofa and listen to Beethoven's 9th symphony (that's what my dad always did... to the utter annoyance of my mum who wanted to go dancing).

Happy New Year, Sabine, my sweet friend. Am so glad I stumbled upon your blog many moons ago. Hope to continue reading, sharing and becoming better aquainted;-)

Ha ha, Leia, do I sound like a real grump? I've got a stomach bug and am finding NYE always a dubious pleasure. Plus, I've changed this post like 100 times. Now I'll just stick to my preachy mood.

Happy New year to you too - hope you feel better soon! If it's any consolation everyone around me has flu so I'm going to have a quiet one and miss the fireworks again (five years in London and never seen them).

Grumpy? No way! I love the photograph, you gorgeous gal. Don't ever ditch the short skirts for good, your legs NEED to be out on display.
Loads of love for 2011! xxxxxxxxxxx

it's been an absolute delight getting acquainted with your blog and then getting to meet you at fashion week (thank you for helping me out with my camera btw).

looking forward to 2011!

happy new year and all of that stuff!

happiness is fleeting, but feeling content is GOLDEN! that is the goal, with spurts of happiness sprinkled throughout!

hope your new year's eve is just fine. i lost my mind and agreed to go to a party. ACK! a party of 5-10 people, so i THINK i can handle it. or i will sneak out and go home. lol

see you on the flip side! :)

Contented New Year to you, Sabine, and I hope you feel better soon! My husband was in bed by 9:30 with some sort of illness, so I've been celebrating by myself in blogland, with a bowl of slightly frostbitten chocolate ice cream and hot fudge topping. :-b

Have a wonderfully content new year Sabine!
I'm quite satisfied with being content too, i think it's very underrated ;)

The sofa sounded nice. I had friends over for a 3 course meal. I felt like I spent the whole day cleaning and cooking. I was exhausted when they arrived. But at least I mustered up enough energy to go outside at midnight to see all the wonderful wireworks and then go out dancing afterwards. A fun evening (but next year I'll be ordering catering or book a table at a restaurant!)

Happy new year, Sabine! :)

Cindy Whitehead said...

I love that first picture (was once again lusting after your rad hair) don't think you look grumpy at all. Happy New Year to you!

Jazzabelle said...

happy new year! totally agree with you about just being content, though. being happy all the time and making a huge fuss over new year's eve is so overrated ;) hehe. xx

SabinePsynopsis said...

HAPPY NEW YEAR, AGAIN!

Cindy - Thank you! Might it be my new thrifty DIY haircut?
I have to admit in the end I took the grumpy picture out - I just couldn't start the new year with a grumpy face; even if it showed the full outfit.

rossovelvet said...

Content new year to you too my dear!!
My resolution should be being able to comment all of your fabulous posts.... but help, it goes so fast!!!
But you cannot imagine how much I appreciate every single post of yours, outfit-wise and philosophically-wise!!!

Hope to see you in London at some point, in the meantime have a cool 2011!!!

Kazuko said...
