SMART, Energy And Decluttering

I don’t know about you, but as soon as the Christmas presents have been opened I’m in, I wanna sort out mode. Major sort out mode! It often doesn’t happen for a few days. I prefer to have a morning free to sort out. I’m not very good at doing chores in the evening. That’s my excuse. More on that later.

This time of year inbetween Christmas and the New Year has most of us reflecting on the past year and thinking about the next. I don’t believe in New Year resolutions. One day is as good as the next to start on something new (or the 3rd day after a new moon according to the lunar cycle). There’s never a right time, sometimes you just have to start.

Christmas Weekend Friday Favourites

Happy Christmas!

I’ll keep the chit chat short and sweet this week and get straight into this week’s Weekend Friday Favourite or last week’s as I feel asleep editing last night. A mix of things that have caught my eye or made me smile this week.

Missoma Labradorite Single Wand Ring c240159.jpg

I came across Missoma looking for dragonfly earrings. They didn’t have dragonfly earrings, they did have a few items I liked enough to keep tabs open on on my phone and peek at until Black Friday. I got lucky and enjoyed 20% off 🙂 I really like the some of their unusual designs such as this Continue reading “Christmas Weekend Friday Favourites”

Altering A Wide Bulky Scarf

I’m sharing a great trick, hack whatever you prefer on how to make a favourite scarf less bulky if it allows. It’s pretty straight forward, if it’s a scarf that has frayed edges…just trim it down!

I’ve always found scarves either too bulky or too thin they don’t have the right hang. Most scarves leave me looking like I’m wearing a neck brace or Continue reading “Altering A Wide Bulky Scarf”

Weekend Friday Favourites

I hope you’re having a great weekend! This week’s been another week where I’ve felt like I need 3 of me so I haven’t dropped by as much as I’d have liked. I’m hoping from next week I can stop by more often now I don’t have as many dentist visits or extra errands. I stopped by to collect my new retainers this week (I managed to snap my top retainer the week before) only to not be able to remove the top retainer! It took the dentist about 20 minutes filling it down until I could remove it easily. I think I tested his patience as every time he filed it down for me to try again I was, seriously I can’t remove it! He was like remove it like this, with me, I’ve been wearing this style of retainer for 10 months. I know how to remove them, it’s too tight!

Anyways, Weekend Friday Favourites, things that have made me smile or caught my eye this week. New retainers didn’t make the cut.

Montserrat National Park

Last Thursday was Fiesta Nacional de Espana or Christopher Columbus day marking his arrival in Las Americas aka a public holiday! 

P was back for a few days so that meant trips outside the city. During the summer on the first day of his motorbike camping trip, his route took him through Montserrat National Park. He made a note to go Continue reading “Montserrat National Park”
