fall 2020 bucket list

Fall is my absolutely favourite season. I love the weather, dressing in boots and sweaters, roasting vegetables, all the pumpkins, and the crisp mornings. I really love making bucket lists at the beginning of the season as it helps me make goals for the next few months and hopefully gets me out doing things. Now…

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…

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…

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….

an ode to my CSA

I have talked before about how much I think paint can change up an item in a cheap, but very effective way. Today I am going to share some home DIY’s that we have been doing lately that are making out home feel even better. Dining Room Crates When we first moved in we were…

“the new normal”

I cannot tell you how many times I have heard the phrase “the new normal” in the past few months. While there are quite a few things that I know will be fixtures in the future such as masks will probably be an accessory that I will get very used to wearing for a long…

july garden update – surprise sunflowers!

Guess what – our strange cucumber plants – they are not cucumbers. We had been having doubts for a little while and as the plants continued to grow taller and taller we started to look into it, and we have Russian Mammoth sunflowers. These giant beasts can grow to be 12 feet tall and have…

another collection of empties – summer 2020

I have been saving my makeup, skincare, and bodycare empties for almost two years now. While this might seem weird for some I like it for a few different ways. For one it is nice for me to see it on an environmental level. I am trying to switch to more naked products and use…
