    Upgrading my Pajamas

    I had been looking to upgrade my pajama situation for a while now. My go-to uniform has always been my decade old high-school t-shirt and my husbands pajama bottoms. I have been on the hunt for a classic style of pyjamas inspired by the 60’s. In particular, my inspiration came from this scene from Man from UNCLE and these ones from the Queen’s Gambit. I could watch Man from UNCLE over and over, it is one of my favourite movies. And we all know I am obsessed with The Queen’s Gambit from this past post. Anyways back to pajamas… I did find a pair that came highly recommended, this pair…

I was also interested to see if blue-light lenses would make a difference for me with the computer at work and at home.

    Day-to-Day: Emma Sawatzky

    Day-to-Day is a series of interviews with women that I admire. I have found at this stage of life, friends are scattered around the province, country, and the world. It is so nice to use the power of the web to feel more connected to a group of women and create a sense of community. I love getting a better idea of what their day-to-day life looks like and what they are currently enjoying and doing. I am so happy that the first Day-to-Day interview is with Emma! Emma is a law student from Canada currently living in the UK. She is a world traveller (follow her on instagram for…
