NOW PLAYING:  Crown on the ground - Sleigh Bells

It's officially winter for my side of the world and for the top half, that means it's obviously summer. Henceforth an influx of vacation sojourns, bronzed bare legs and beach bum days are set to invade feeds everywhere. Now I've said this before and your darn right I'll definitely mention it again, but I firmly believe I was born in the wrong hemisphere. Even though I have a preference for the cold, there is just something about this time of year that leaves my nomad soul yearning for a slightly warmer climate. And maybe its that surge of Instagram summertime decadency that leaves my heart aflutter. Or perhaps it's just heeding to and reading about the adventures of fellow peers who've decided to trek on over to that other side of the globe for a few blissful weeks that changes my thought preferences.

I've also noticed how my inclination for certain types of music dramatically changes along with the passing seasons. Rather than finding solace in mellow tunes and classical notes while seated beside an open fire during the colder part of the year, I've found that I tend to sway more towards dance rhythms and electric beats. You know, the kind of tunes you'd find yourself absorbing while at summer festivals, spontaneous roadtrips and such. The same goes for the warmer ones, I sway towards chill-out tunes. Those sluggish and soulful kinds too. Weird I know, but further proof to my theory that I belong on the top half of planet Earth. But anyway, I'm curious, do any of you notice the same tendencies and changes with the coming seasons? Because I know I'm not alone in this eccentricity.

  3. I do prefer summer - dressing is easier as you don't have to worry about layers, haha! But looking forward to rugging up over winter and getting the scarves and knits and leather jackets out. Because all too soon it will be summer again! :)

  15. I sometimes miss winter when its summer but not as intensely as your describing, Lol, maybe because I live in the northern hemisphere. Who know's? But usually when I and missing a particular season I Google for fun things to do during the winter. We can't have hot coco, but u can :) Plus you can enjoy nice movie next to a cozy fire!

  16. I'm longing for summer to come. I understand you, because I've always thought it very strange that Christmas is celebrated in the beach. I live in Spain and love its weather, even if this year it has been raining a lot.

  20. Funny - I always wanted to live down under and I still think I was born on the wrong side of the globe. I could be surfing almost all year round, have that amazing accent of yours (seriously, I love it!) and the always amazing Aussie style. Oh... Maybe we should switch places for a couple of years, or hunt the summer together :D!

    Have a very awesome week, Sonia!

  48. You're definitely not alone, I'm also a summer girl and constantly craving sunshine, warmth, summer tunes and sweet-summery foods! Living in England, you can imagine how strong my cravings are haha.. at some point in the future I'll definitely be moving to warmer climates - but for now (whilst you're experiencing winter), we'll just have to make do with listening to summer tunes and looking at pictures of warm, sandy beaches online! ;) Have a great week!

  53. Whoaaa that shattered eyeshadow (?) photo is soo cool. I always love looking at your collages. And gosh it's so crazy how the hemispheres are complete opposites for season. Ok haha I mean it makes sense scientifically but it still blows my mind how people are experiencing complete opposites at the exact same moment.

  58. I was always jealous of people who lived in countries with constant summer or spring. I've never been to the other hemisphere, but I like living in Greece. However, the temperatures can get really high during summer, and that's something I don't like.
