July has been a weird month. I am sitting in bed typing this in the notes section of my phone because I am far too zen right now to even consider opening my laptop. July has been a weird month….

I remember about 8 years ago I was at a second hand shop in Oslo and I bought this navy, floral pleated skirt, I was ahead of my time. Pleats have really waited quite some time for their moment in the sun and now it has finally arrived. Whether it’s a result of their vintage feel or undeniable timeless elegance is not important, to me, these pleated gems are an all-weather must-have.

We preen and prance and fluff and truss all in the hope that the person sitting on the opposite side of the table will see something worth investing in. And while your skills have a massive role to play in this process, your confidence and your belief in yourself does too.
Friends! As I mentioned on Instagram earlier this morning, Kim and I are going to be introducing a new series to the blog, this is the new series by the way. We’ve realised (through our exploits in frugality) that we experience wonderful things every single week and not all of them are as a result of a purchase, we read, we eat, we meet, we experience… So every week, starting from today, we will be sharing five things that have truly sparked that joy during the course of the week.
