We’re planning for travel this winter. Not actually travelling, but reading and researching and dreaming of our next big trip.
In between being a poor student, an underpaid young teacher, and an aspiring ethical shopper, I had a few indulgent years. The years when I had enough money to buy what I wanted. And did.
I’ve been sick this past week with a killer cold. Thank god for reading in bed, is all I can say.
I’m taking wardrobe inventory this week. Looking at what I bought in 2019, and assessing how I’m doing in my efforts to be a more ethical shopper.
Wishing you a fabulous Christmas and all the wonderful black and white Christmas movies you can stand. Everyone knows the old movies are the best.
I’ve been musing about accessories lately. Can I still be considered an accessory minimalist? Or am I guilty of accessory excess?
It’s Fair Isle sweater weather. Cold, crisp, and sunny. Fair Isle sweaters are on trend this season. And I just happen to have several that I made myself.
In these crazy, chaotic, angry times we all need a little kindness.
My closet goal this fall is to wear what I own, to wear all the old stuff in my closet. But I needed something new to be able to do that.
When darkness comes early you’ll find us hunkered down with a good book. Or three. Here’s what we’ve been reading.
The best kind of travel is when you feel at home no matter where you are.
I’m getting cranky again over all the hyperbole on the internet. I mean. Can we all just get over being “obsessed” with everything?
I’m at my mum’s this week. And our best laid plans have fallen apart. All because of a couple of silly choices and a bad back.
I’m looking for a few outfits to make dressing easy. Outfits that will be easy to haul out of the closet, pull on, and look good.
This week of Remembrance Day I’m remembering our trip to Bosnia-Herzegovina. And thanking my lucky stars not to have seen my country torn apart by war.
