fall 10×10 challenge

Back in June I experimented for the first time with a 10×10 challenge, aka, only wearing 10 different items of clothing for 10 straight days. Now this challenge went quite well and it changed me to find new ways to wear the clothes that I did have. You can check out that full blog post…

fall bucket list (and summer check in)

Happy first day of fall everyone! Just like I wrote at the beginning of summer I am putting together a list of things that I want to accomplish over the upcoming fall months. Though where I live involves a lot of rain in fall (and winter, and spring) there are always a few nice days…
