Resurfacing In 2023

It seems already long ago when we rolled into the new year. Usually, in December I leave everything I am doing to stay away from the internet and detox for a month. This time it took me longer as the last December’s energy in the Universe was so bad, I really didn’t want to be part of it. It was the first time in my life I did not celebrated Christmas and New Year, the food was ready and so was my beautifully decorated table, but the seasonal sickness hit me at that time made me not at all interested in the celebrations, although I tried.

Pope Benedict XVI passed away at Christmas Eve, leaving the world with the impostor Cardinal we have right now. One of my dear school friend also passed away on New Year’s Eve. The ugly news kept coming in December, I just couldn’t wait to go into another dimension full of colors and light.

I am just now resurfacing from my hibernation and it’s almost February. As I always say, January is a trial month, it doesn’t really count, at least for me. My new year is now full of colors as always, except for the white I have been wearing almost every day as a purification and cleansing.

My numerology coach says 2023 is the year of the skin, it means we must take care of our skin, choose a type of body detox to implement but also it means to hug people and become in contact with the skin of others. As we know lockdown put a great distance between people to the point that we use a fist or hit elbows as a salutation, hugs and kiss have disappeared from our daily socializing. Let’s return to be human again.

The number 7 is the karma’s number for 2023. This is the year of Neptune, the return of the warrior souls, it will be a year of sacrifice.

That’s the reason I chose to wear the color white for the whole month of January, it’s my way to detox from the accumulation of bold colors energy and outside influences. Colors, food detoxification, home purification and staying away from electromagnetism of electronic devices is my way to obey to certain laws that govern in the Cosmos.

These two pieces are my knitted creations available in my Etsy store. Although white is not my color, I can see the benefit of wearing it with some beige, gold and a bit of orange, all in a small quantity. The focus must be the white covering the body for purification.

This year, if you are a warrior and you want to be on top of what 2023 will do, save your soul by creating anything beautiful, anything that makes you happy, because the moment the opposite forces see your happiness doesn’t depend on what they do, their decline will start. Contrast negative forces by using colors, a lot of them and add love, which is never enough. Create, create, create.

“When there is no color, there is no energy and when there is no energy, there is no life” ~Caravaggio~ I totally agree, Ciao.

January In White | Valentina Cirasola | Designer

Girl-Pink-Green-1aWelcome to my Friday Fashion episode.
In this cold month of January I cannot carry on thinking of spring just yet. I want to live in the moment, enjoying this season, feeling the cold wind on my face and wearing cozy clothes on grey days. Welcome every change of season.

January is the month to wear white and not because we are going to a ski resort, but because it is a cozy color to roll in. A city winter white coat should be ample, loose fit enough to give you space to wear a sweater or layered clothes underneath with a large collar or hood to embrace you in warmth. I like my coats with a few deep pockets and frogged closures. Fabrics for a winter white coat should be light and warm for easy wear. It should contain mixed wools, cashmere, merino, alpaca, or a mixture of all and it should be scotch guarded on for easy cleaning.

A white coat is versatile, easy to wear with jeans, any regular pants or fuseaux (leggings). With a white coat I would not wear white shoes and bags, it’s January after all. The accessories should be the accent. For a sober look, colors can range from warm beige, saddle, tobacco to grey and black. For a more playful look other colors can find their way in the mixing. White coat over white garment is the classic combination, perfect for brunette or red hair women, but not for blond women.

Long time ago I wore real fur hats, now I wear ecological furs. I like that feeling of sinking my head in the soft fur even though it is faux. Gloves and scarf will add the finish touch. I just ordered my houndtooth long gloves and now I am ready to face the cold weather.

Stay warm and cozy. Make time for a stop at a café for a hot cocoa. Ciao,
