Confession time: I did another order from Everything5Pounds. I have mixed feelings, and this is why. I has been trying to resist fast fashion. Having said that, some of the items from E5P are excellent quality. The other reason for internal disquiet is that the…
- 10 tops

Okay, it’s been a whole month since I did an update, AND I haven’t done much towards my goals. But I survived the biggest event of the year for work, and had a wonderful getaway to France!
The getaway was exactly what we had hoped for. With work being so busy, we wanted to have a weekend away somewhere we could take long, curiosity-raising walks and then sit and admire our surroundings. Carcassonne was perfect for that!

- Honour and respect it.
