Month: February 2013

challenge accepted!

I decided to challenge myself not to buy any clothes in 2013. This includes shoes and accessories too. I’ve done pretty well so far with 1 item bought this year (before my decision). It’s not that I would be spending loads on clothes anyway, but I like to browse second hand shops and occasionally purchase more expensive designer items. Living in a small apartment has made me realize that I actually have a lot of stuff, why would I need more? If I really need something, I can make it myself. So, hopefully this doesn’t mean it will be a boring year from a blogging perspective but instead a year of DIY, upcycling, re-intenting and creativity. I’m sure this new approach will force me to re-evaluate what I really need and to invent ways to keep my wardrobe up-to-date without entering the shops. I’m committed and would like to send this challenge out there to the world as well, in case someone would like to join me.

a winter’s tail

As we are moving towards spring, the days are getting longer and the sun is warming up just that little bit more, it’s time to enjoy those last winter days when the ice is still thick enough to carry your weight and trees are still sleeping under their crystalline blanket.
