I’ve been MIA for a while. Life and all. But 2018 is the year I want to start blogging again because I still sew (a lot), I miss telling others about it and IG is just not cutting it (the timeline drives me crazy) 2018 is also the year I want to stop caring about my weight. I’ve realised the past couple of months that having clothes that I love accomplishes that (for the most part). Somewhere mid-fall I decided that it was time for a closet purge, a colour palette, a styling workshop and a confidence boost. I now … Continue reading 2018


I’d like to start by wishing you a happy 2017. May world peace and eternal happiness be forth coming! #optimist 2017 is only 3 days old and I’ve come to the biggest realisation in years. It’s a feeling I’ve had for a while but that I wasn’t able to properly voice or explain until now. In a few days my blog will be 4 years old (#congratulations) and in those 4 years my life has known many changes and I’ve shared them all with you. As you well know, I became a mother almost 3 years ago and life hasn’t been … Continue reading 2017

Laundry Challenge: Conclusions

I´ve learned a lot of things the past two weeks, so let me share them with you! I have enough clothes to get me through 2 weeks minimum. I didn´t do laundry for 2 weeks and we´ve only had warm weather so I haven´t even touched the pants/long sleeve t-shirts/cardigans I had selected. There is no need to throw something in the laundry when it´s only been worn once and not dirty. I´ve got hardly any laundry now! I felt pretty good in my clothes the past 2 weeks. So no need to go emergency sewing! BUT (there is always … Continue reading Laundry Challenge: Conclusions

Laundry Challenge Week 2: Round-up

Week 2 and also the final week of this Two Week Laundry Challenge. If you are new, find all about it here. If you missed the first round-up, you can find it here. Week 2 was less about deciding the pros and cons of each outfit and more about determining why these outfits didn´t work before. This is one of the ´forgotten´ dresses. I think everyone woman has at least one item of clothing which she likes but somehow it still ends up at the back of her closet and it rarely gets worn. It certainly applies to this dress. … Continue reading Laundry Challenge Week 2: Round-up

Laundry Challenge Week 1: Round-up

I´m halfway through my Laundry Challenge (read all about it here) and it´s going really well. I put the rack of clothing right next to my bed so I can see all my clothes when still lying in bed. It makes me really happy each night and each morning to see them hanging there and deciding what I want to wear. Big Win Number One: I´m excited about wearing my clothes. I´ve noticed that since there are fewer items to choose from, I don´t get overwhelmed, don´t feel the need to change 500 times and I´m instantly happy with the choices … Continue reading Laundry Challenge Week 1: Round-up

The challenge in the laundry conundrum!

Thanks for your responses on yesterday´s post, I´m glad to hear that I´m not the only one. I finished laundry today (yes, it took me two days…) and the advantage of having all your clothes clean at the same time is that you can really really look at them. I´ve decided to conduct a little experiment: I selected the clothes that I liked best out of my entire wardrobe. This wasn´t as easy as I thought because most of my beloved clothes are either too small or not suitable for breastfeeding. Of the ones left, I selected the items on … Continue reading The challenge in the laundry conundrum!

On doing laundry

I was doing laundry just now and it got me thinking. (I hate doing laundry so when I do, it usually takes so long, that I have a lot of extra time to think) My husband has the exact same wardrobe (give or take a few pieces which had to be replaced) as when I met him 5 years ago. I bought him some new pairs of jeans because the old ones wore out or he gained a few pounds and needed new ones. He got a few new t-shirts to replace others. I even had to force him into … Continue reading On doing laundry
