Fast Month #3 // Replacing Shopping With...

That's a Fish.

Three months into my shopping fast - which is more of a "shopping recasting" since I still purchase groceries, cleaning products, depleted consumables etc. -, I started to understand exactly what my shopping habits used to be about.

As it sometimes happens when working in Communication, I'm being very busy at a press event this week. While I'm not around, I have planned this little light post, inspired from a Youtuber tag Coco posted a few days ago. Here are 15 weird questions and my short answers to each of them. I'll have more thoughts to share in the next few days, but sometimes a light break is nice.

After reading Maja's tag post exploring some bits and stories of her closet, I decided to jump on the invitation to do one myself - because, as a reader, I love these sneak peek posts, because it is an interesting self assessement of my closet, and because I thought you might like it. Enter, closet confidential.

One of my new resolutions in September is to practice more gratitude, make myself aware of all these little things, big or small, that make my life good. One of the ways is through these "Forget Me Not" posts, gratitude in pictures - little things that made my week.

Seasons: September

Here is a new, hopefully monthly - let's not commit too early - series of posts about seasonal joys, specificities and recipes. Of course, this is very region-centered as it concerns what's in season here in France, and probably more widely on the Northern hemisphere, but I'd love to know what your September is about!
