It’s very dry where I live. Think of a desert with snow. As I’ve aged I’ve found that my skin is less able to cope with the climate than it was when I was younger. It’s still oily but now, for the first time in my life, I am having to deal with the occasional dry patch, some redness, and a general tight feeling in my skin. Unpleasant. I got this generous sample size of Sunday Riley Good Genes All-I-One Lactic Acid Treatment in a Sephora Favourites box of goodies I bought last winter. I finally got around to using it in February and within a few weeks my skin was looking the best it had in a long time. Colour me impressed.
Welcome to another Everlane review! In the past I’ve stayed away from delicate fabrics such as silk and cashmere. I was worried that I would not be able to properly wash them (we do not have access to reliable dry cleaning where I live) and end up ruining the garment. Recently, I’ve decided that life is short and if I want to wear silk and cashmere then I am going to wear silk and cashmere. Lack of dry cleaning facilities be darned, I’ll hand wash! I’d been eyeing up Everlane’s silk shirts for several months so I was delighted when the chance to try out their Shirred Silk Shirt came up. I ordered it in black because I did not want to tempt the fates with a lighter colour.
In my childhood home, it was not uncommon to find all five of my family members sitting around with our noses in a book. I’m a big reader, just like my parents and siblings. I don’t talk about books a lot here, but today I thought I’d share the five best books for summer 2019!
I wore this simple spring/summer ready outfit a week or so ago to grab some lunch and do a quick errand or two. When we really get into summer I’ll just ditch the jacket. It was a big day – my first time out of the house after spending eight days cooped up recovering from my breast reduction (a post on that is coming in the next few months).
