It’s just half a day away from the Winter Solstice as I write this… time to wrap up my thoughts on what I read this autumn! This isn’t a full list of what I read this season but most of it, and the ones I felt like writing little reviews for. Overall I read some […] Read more…

Art Nouveau Tarot Decks: Findings and Favorites

When most people think of Art Nouveau they think of art by Alphonse Mucha, the Czech illustrator who popularized the Art Nouveau movement in the late 1800s. The style is known for it’s elegant and flowing nature-inspired details with both organic and geometric elements. It’s one of my favorite eras of art I think, the […] Read more…

Summer Reading Wrap Up

This post is about a month “late” but I’m not giving myself a hard time about it. Life has been rough lately (it’s thrown a major challenge at my family in addition to the rest of what’s happening in the world right now). Better late than never, as they say. So, my friends, be gentle […] Read more…

Tarot Decks: Findings and Favorites

Tarot cards have been a part of my self-care routine for about 4 years now, and though I only had one deck at first, during the last year, and especially during this year’s pandemic, I’ve been collecting a fair few more. I’ve been posting mini reviews on Instagram, but I’ve been meaning to create a […] Read more…

Spring Reading Wrap Up

It’s the first day of summer, 2020. My cat, Leia, bless her, is napping beside me, that feline smile peacefully gracing her whiskered face. And outside… the world as we know it has been upended by a global pandemic, a civil rights movement/awakening (one that I pray will bring lasting change) and, in addition, many […] Read more…

Winter Reading Wrap Up

Here’s a look at what I read in January/February and part of March 2020. It’s difficult for me to post individual reviews for everything I read, so I’m going to give quarterly, seasonal wrap ups a try this year. A sort of list, with mini-reviews of what I’ve read recently. Do let me know if […] Read more…

BIG Books on My TBR

What is it about those BIG books? The ones that thunk if you drop them on the floor, the ones that just feel like something extra in your hands. I’m drawn to them like a faerie to glitter. Some of my favorite books have been big books — and yet I often procrastinate reading new […] Read more…

Review: Plants are Magic Magazine

The independently published magazine, Plants are Magic, is a new obsession of mine. This magazine celebrates botanical creativity and the human relationship with plants. It is full of interviews, stories, recipes and craft tutorials, and beautiful imagery. It is published by Rebecca Desnos, a natural dyer and writer in the UK. I absolutely love what […] Read more…

Cognitive Surplus Notebook Obsession + Review

For some, finding the perfect notebook is akin to finding perfectly fitting jeans or just the right coffee blend. I am one of those people. I am a notebook person and I could literally spend an entire day (or more) perusing notebooks. I’ve been a notebook lover ever since I can remember, probably since pre-school […] Read more…

Getting Organized: My 2019 Planners

If you saw my 2018 planners post, you know how much I love a good planner / agenda notebook, making daily to-do lists, and setting goals to turn those dreams into plans! For 2019, I have my planners (yes, plural) lined up and ready to share with you. Along with a slew of pretty washi tape, […] Read more…

Adaptogens and Super Powders: The Basics + Two Books You Need

Do you suffer from stress? I’m betting that many of you would nod in agreement to that question. I do too. Chronic stress, with a side of anxiety, and the occasional dash of panic attack. I know that life isn’t going to suddenly become void of all stress-triggers, so I do what I can to […] Read more…

Book Review: Plant-Powered Beauty

Asking me if I want my beauty and skincare to be plant-powered is like asking me if I’d like time for an extra nap during the week. Um, yes please! Plant-Powered Beauty: The Essential Guide to Using Plant-Based Ingredients for Health, Wellness, and Personal Skincare was sent to me when it was released in March, […] Read more…
