creating home – main bathroom

This was not the home post that I was planning on writing this month. Last month when I was planning out my blog posts for the month this room was in complete shambles. We had been living with a hole in our wall pretty much the entire time we have been in this house and…

reading the goodreads choice awards

Every year now for the past three years I have made it a goal to read all of the Goodreads Choice Award winners (or close to). This means that I am reading books in 20 different categories as well as keeping up on books that are popular, which is important as a librarian. Now I…

fall 2020 makeup routine

After many months of my makeup collection gathering dust on my dresser, I have dived back into the world of makeup with the return the work and I am feeling a new joy towards using makeup. I have enjoyed my makeup routine for most of my life. I don’t spend a lot of time getting…

re-reading old books

I am not a huge re-reader of books. There are very few books that I have read over and over again, mostly because there are so many new books that I want to read that I don’t have the time to go back to them. Over the past few months I found myself going back…

getting back into a routine

September has always been a time of new beginnings for me. There is something about the end of summer and the start of the school year that makes me want to get back into routines and start the year off in a good way. Now I know that this year is very different than those…

the best books i read this month – august 2020

August has slipped away (like a bottle of wine) and with the end of the month comes my monthly book post about the best books I read this month. This month brought back for me reading while sitting on transit which is lovely and also I read a few of my old favourite books which…

planning for a fall 3×33

I really love clothes, but I also really love keeping my wardrobe somewhat minimal as too many choices I find can be overwhelming for me, and also I like not buying everything that I see so having a goal for my closet helps me to be intentional and more sustainable. Last summer I participated in…

august garden update – preparing for fall

Another month has passed in the life of my garden and things are certainly growing. This was also an exciting month as I began to prepare for my fall crops, something I have never tried before. First though let’s talk about what I did harvest. I did get a few more radishes and beets, though…

a work from home 10×10

It has been a while since I have done any sort of clothing blog post. To be honest, mine (as well as many other people’s) outfits and clothing has really gone out the window. I spent much of the past few months in athletic wear, lounge wear, and pajamas. Now however I am back at…

creating home – living room

It is no question why this room is called the Living Room as I spend more waking time here than anywhere else. Whether it is watching TV (currently on a Gilmore Girl’s rewatch), working out, cozy-ing up by the fire, or gathering with friends this is a place that I spend a lot of time….
