organize: stack & store.


well my friends, the seasons have changed haven’t they. what are you to do with all those sweaters?

1. wear them with cut-off shorts I say!

2. if you don’t want to do that, just make sure to fold them all nice and neat and put them away.

3. if some got tons of wear in the colder months, make sure to drop that stack off at the dry cleaners before storing them for the season.

4. listen to the Wild Nothings new album Empty Estate as you fold–i promise the time will go by just like that!

5. place a mixture of dried lavender and cedar chips in cheesecloth. tie up the ends.  make a few of these bundles and stash between layers. (i found that a moth ate through a prominent spot on a j.crew merino wool sweater–NEVER AGAIN!!!)

6. make sure to store these AWAY from windows. uv light damages color and you’ll end up with a red sweater with a funny pink stripe where that portion of the sweater got constant sunlight.

et voila. wear next-to-nothing all spring and summer and love that when fall comes around again, everything will be fresh and ready to roll!

soy sauce.










well, i’m back.  i’ve been through many changes since january and am so glad i did. i’m a certified yoga instructor now and am living more of a yogi life now.  i’m now vegan and loving it! i’ll have to share some recipes.  i had no idea i could be so satisfied without eating meat! i compost too and its fun to see how many fruits and veggies i actually eat throughout the week. i still have a sense of humor though–and a sense of style, hehe….

so it’s taken me a while to figure out how to get blogging back into my life in a meaningful way and, well, this is the beginning!!! i really want to take you more into my new lifestyle–buying less, consuming less, and being totally happy and stylish about it! well that’s the plan.

p.s. can’t stop listening to ‘ho hey’ by the lumineers right now. floydfest anyone?

hola! i don’t know how this set of photos escaped me.  i love being silly and i was maybe a bit over the top on this shoot.  oh well. whatevs.  you love it anyway.  and thanks! short skirts and loose tops will basically be my entire spring wardrobe so look out!

i know i’m in and out on blogging lately, but i’m teaching yoga now and trying to settle into my new life and new schedule.  i did an immersion, intensive yoga teacher training last month and am still reeling from all the wonderful stuff i learned.  universal love to all living things! woot.
