Currently Reading Vol.5, and where I’m at with reading in 2020

Amongst many other things, I, unfortunately, didn’t complete my 2019 reading goal (wanted to read 24 book, read 23 and a half. VERY frustrating), so I felt a bit shy to make my goal for 2020 30 books, which is what I had originally planned for. I feel like if the number is too high…

My decade (almost) in Art

Before we get too far into January, I wanted to do my own recap of the past decade, but instead of going through memories, I thought I would look back at the art I was creating every year of the past decade (alright, not every year, because I am not home and annoyingly I couldn’t…

Fall Style Staples

I am not gonna lie: I am pretty heart-broken that summer is now behind us, and putting on a loose dress and some strappy sandals is not a functional outfit anymore. I do think I am handling the shorter days a lot better than I did last year, which could be due to the fact…

A weekend in Vienna

Last time in Vienna I was 19. I was backpacking through Europe with 5 friends, and we were staying in the cheapest hostels we could find and eating bad deli meat sandwiches day in and day out. I believe we visited 8 cities on that trip, so places blend together in my mind and the…

Easy ways to create art for your walls

Daughter of a ceramist and painter, my childhood home was always filled with art. Paintings from my grandfather, sculptures of my grandmother, pieces that my mum had exchanged with other artists… They were all sizes, colors and styles, and it seemed natural to me, that if there was room on the wall, it would be…
