Hugs and Friends, Oh And Twirling.

Why is it not okay to ask for a hug? Say you need one?

Book: Uprooted by Naomi Novik

Apologies for being absent this week. I wish there was a solid reason, but really I disappeared into a novel.

Unexpected

The unexpected comes from nowhere – it’s why it’s called unexpected.

Contented

My brain is pleasantly contented.

Outdoor What?!

Hey all, are y’all ready to shed the layers? ‘Cause I sooo am.

Who Will I Be Tomorrow?

Cold.


But the wind was blowing, and the lake was speaking.
Everywhere change was in the air.
There’s a celebration of life in this dying of the summer.
The realization that all things must end, change, and be born again.
Nothing remains the same.
I adore the endless possibilities. I embrace the freedom.
Who will I be tomorrow?

Favorite Scarves

I have a few. Those standards go-tos. You know, the ones you reach for without really thinking.  Obviously, my Polish scarf is on that list. As is a gorgeous black one from Kish & Evie – you’ll be seeing that a lot this Winter.


But a new go-to is this tapestry scarf from HoneyBea. I found HoneyBea at the Port Dover Arts festival. She stopped me and asked about my dress, and we bonded over our mutual love of Spell & the Gypsy Collective. I fell in love with her stylings too. Very boho, but completely geared towards our cold Canadian climate. The cardigans are killer and I definitely want to add one to my wardrobe at some point. But at that moment in time, this tapestry scarf caught my eye.

It’s made from recycled fabrics, and stitched together with love and care. There’s nothing better than a beautiful piece that is locally made and recycled too.

The heavy structure of the fabrics makes it really warm, and the patterns all work well together to create a lovely neutral blend; so it can go with anything.

Is my Polish Showing?

Polish-scarf-jean-shirt-yoga-pants

Many of you don’t know that I was born and partly raised in Poland. I literally came to Canada on a boat. Yup. That’s right.  I learned to speak English and adjusted to life in Canada. It’s just me, my Mom, and my sister here.


Right now I truly consider myself Canadian. As much as I love Poland, and of course all the family still there, if I had to choose an identification it would very much be Canadian. But that doesn’t mean I’m not Polish. I read books, and consume media, and there are habits and traditions very much alive amid all that Canadian-ness.

And I also can’t resist throwing a little Polish traditional garb into my style occasionally, like this scarf.

Still desolate, still snowy ice caps, but it’s a beach. The wind was cold and howling but…. It’s a beach and it’s not covered with piles and piles of snow.  It’s a beach.  That in itself makes me very happy.

What’s making you happy today?

What to Wear to an Indie Launch Party.

Just before the mountains of snow descended upon us, before the weather fell to a painful minus thirty nine degrees celsius, before Toronto turned into the ice planet Hoth, I went out.  I went out and got some photos on a balm plus one degree day.  It’s sad to think that I long for the warmth of plus one.

I stood there taking pictures for the launch party of another brand, and I remember thinking, “This isn’t too bad.  I could handle this kind of Winter.”  Oh what a fool I was.  I had no idea what was coming.  Every year around this time, the outfit posts slow, because I doubt you guys are interested in seeing the same pair of eyes peeking out from under the same blanket day in and day out…sitting beside a space heater.
