My Diary For 2023

Every year I write a blog post about which diary system or set up I am going to use for the following twelve months. In recent years, I have moved away from a Filofax (I trialled something earlier this year - more of that in a minute) and fallen in love with the Hobonichi printed diaries. For the last two years I have used a Hobonichi Weeks as my personal planner and I won't be deviating from that this year. I have tried a Hobonichi Techo A6 a couple of times but have never managed to feel comfortable with it size-wise.  I have always lusted after the Hobonichi Cousin A5 as a main work planner so, this year, I have bitten the bullet at launch time and invested in my very first one. Hobonichi Weeks The Hobonichi Weeks is a slim diary with a yearly, monthly and weekly layout. The main section is a "week to view with notes" and there are an additional 70 note pages at the back. This year (2022) I used the "Mega" version which comes with almost three times as m

Jeans – The right clothing for your everyday activities

Jeans are one style of clothing that will be forever loved across the globe. But bear in mind that the styling this wear provides varies from one person to another. What looks great on someone else may not on you. As a result, you have to find the right cut, style, colour, wash, and fabric for your jeans while putting your body shape at the forefront.

One thing you should not be afraid of doing with your jeans is to experiment. Understandably, you want to stick to something that works for you; however, there is no harm in trying out something outside the norm. Mom jeans, dungarees, and other outfits are also available at your fingertips – Marilyn Monroe is a perfect example. The “Blonde Bombshell” actor was known for rocking various denim styles, ranging from skinnies to boyfriend jeans.

No Rules in the World of Denim

In the past, people in the manufacturing industry wore iconic work jeans, which had five pockets. Over time, clothing companies have adopted this style in their designer jeans. Currently, you will find this outfit in the wardrobes of many homes. With new, attractive styling in place, you can rock your denim to a club, dinner event, or even go out on a date. Buying denim is a profitable investment you can make and enjoy for a long time. You can balance your appearance by putting on dark jeans with a light top – olive green, dark blue, and burgundy jeans would do.

Comfort is Everything

One factor you should not downplay is comfort. No doubt, you want a pair of denim that depicts the perfect fashion sense and style. However, you do not want a material that will make it hard to perform activities. Hence, get a pair of jeans that have good “memory” – it can stretch and take on the shape of your body and still assume its original form afterward. That is not to state that oversized or small-size denim won’t look great on you – it depends on your preference and physique.

When selecting your jeans, consider the style and shape that will augment your physique, including your thighs and hips. You can highlight your best features and hide those areas that are not appealing. Additionally, it is essential to get a pair that takes on your body shape with no trouble.

Don’t Forget the Details

A slight adjustment in your jeans can make a significant difference and give you the perfect shape. You can give your butt cheeks a full appearance by adding embellished back pockets to your denim. There are options to select from, including jeans with zippers or buttons – depending on your preference. Ensure that you experiment with various styles to find out the ideal pair for any event. Also, remember that your comfort is of utmost priority. Buying a pair of jeans with a good memory will give you the right feel while maintaining a classy look. Such an outfit will mould with your body shape as you go about your daily activities.
