It’s been a week since I posted a story and what a week of hell it has been. It’s hard to post about fashion and beauty when you know people who have friends and relatives in bomb shelters in Ukraine. In fact, my planned post for this week was going to be about this Saturday, March 5th, which according to my horoscope will be the best day for me of the year (I’m a Pisces, my birthday is next week). I was going to write about all of the things I have been looking forward to doing post-pandemic and what would constitute a perfect day in my eyes. Now, it seems trite. And unless something spectacular happens, the day isn’t going to live up to the hype.
All the constant news scrolling is a lot, and the uncertainty feels like the beginning of the pandemic when the future seemed rather terrifying. Going forward, I will go back to supporting women and brands that I love, it’s important, we will need to move forward. But for now, I’m trying to support the people of Ukraine and waiting for that sliver of hope. In the meantime, I am trying to grab onto any good news, like the reports that the Ukrainians managed to save 25 works of artist Maria Primachenko (above) before the museum holding her paintings was bombed. I didn’t know anything of Maria; it’s nice to discover something new and positive. May there be more positive things to celebrate soon.
