Dear readers, I’m checking in to let you know that I’m still alive and still a blogger: at least in theory, if not practice. Unfortunately, work has been so intense recently (including two sleepless nights last week) that I’ve simply been unable to post. Whi..
The last outfit I talked about here was rather minimal: grey, white, t-shirt, jeans… So it makes sense – at least in my mind – to change tack entirely and do an opulent look. Of all my office style ideas I’m pretty sure this is the one most people will find ..
I’m late with posting this, because work has been crazy. It has also been wonderful and exciting – I’m not here to complain. The intensity of my work life is in fact directly relevant for this post. I am not going to talk much about what I’m currently wearin..

I own a lot of skincare and generally, I’m fine with that. I do, however, go through buy-purge cycles on a regular basis. More than spring, autumn is when I feel like organising my stash and getting rid of stuff. And then, inevitably, buying new stuff, becau..
Never mind all those fancy style posts I’ve done for the blog – the most popular* article featuring clothes is this rather modest one on office wear. Ever since I did it, I’ve planned a sequel, as the response was so positive and encouraging. Capturing a ful..
Yesterday, I made rabbit in cider with celery, carrots and tarragon. It’s a sure sign that I have mentally switched to autumn. It is unclear how much cooking (by me) will take place in the coming months, as the work schedule will be tight. It’s certain, howe..
