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…

an ode to my CSA

This is the second year that I have supported a CSA (community supported agriculture) and it is one of my favourite things to do in the summer. We ended up doing a different CSA this year than last year, due to the farm stopping their CSA program, but I have really enjoyed the ability to…

It has been a little while since I have put out a podcast blog post, but I have started listening to a bunch of great podcasts that I am excited to share with you all. If you want to check out my previous posts you can see them all here. Many of them I am…

the best books i read this month – july 2020

Summer has arrived! It is so nice to actually start wearing the shorts that are in my closet and also to discover that my home stays pretty cool, even on the days that go over 30 degrees. I always love starting to write these blog posts because it means I get to take a look…
