Some things I have on re-order:

  1. Vintner’s Daughter Active Botanical Serum (here): A downright splurge, but so worth it.¬†Friends who have sampled from my bottle wake-up in the morning saying they’re believers! Plus I’m obsessed with the scent.
  2. Almond Shower Oil by L’Occitane (here): It starts out oily and lathers up nicely in the shower! Extra hydrating – I use this especially on my feet, knees, and elbows.
  3. True Botanicals Hydrating Mist (here): I use this after using toner to moisten my skin again, and it’s another scent winner for me.
  4. Kate Somerville EradKate (here): As soon as I feel a hormonal breakout coming, I dab this on and it’s gone within days.
  5. La Mer The Tonic (here): Even after washing my face I never skip this step. It never feels fully clean and refreshed until I’ve used this tonic.
  6. Biossance 100% Squalane Oil (here): I’ve written about this product before and I stand by my opinion! This has essentially replaced “body lotion” for me – this oil hydrates and leaves a nice, subtle glow on my skin.

The Buying a House Blouse


Hello, everyone!  It’s been quite a while since I have posted anything.



The main reason for my online disappearance is the fact that I am now a homeowner!  That process has kept me rather busy, and the move, etc., has not left much time for sewing, let alone blogging.  I was actually without internet for a couple of weeks which was rather refreshing.


Of course, I wanted to make a new outfit for the occasion, but there was not a lot of free time prior to closing.  But I was determined!  


I have been wanting to make this blouse for years.  I often pull out scraps of fabric along with the pattern, hoping that I can squeeze out an entire garment, but it never has worked for me.  Until now!


The leftovers from this skirt and this dress were tucked away in a drawer, and while the dye lots do not match, I think I managed to make it work.  The neck tie was made with the leftovers from the skirt, and the rest of the blouse (which is a slightly more pigmented and heavier weight cotton) was cut from the remains of the dress.  There were quite a few people who thought that the look was actually a dress, so I guess the difference is not terribly obvious.


These photos were taken about an hour after signing all of the paperwork (in my old neighborhood).  I was exhausted, but very happy.


I really began looking in earnest over a year ago, so it was a huge relief to finally be done.


It has been quite an adventure, and my new living space is still not “finished,” but Valentino and I are definitely settling in, and I am finally getting back into a routine – one that will definitely include many more sewing adventures!

Skirt:  Made by me, Butterick 4792
Shoes:  Born “Kharen”

What to Pack For a Day at the Beach With a Toddler

It’s not summer to me until we’ve been to the beach. Being by the water has always been so restful and healing for my soul. The older I get, the more of a beach gal I seem to become. I’m happy to report that Piper shares my love of the water and has loved the […]
