Yes, please

One thing about my new found frugality (or, at least, efforts to be frugal) is that it's a lot easier than I thought it would be. Especially when it came to shopping.

I have been making a conscious effort to only buy things that I absolutely adore and am 100% positive I will wear regularly. I've also started taking a lot more time to make the decision to buy something - I used to be a ridiculous impulse buyer! (And really, it still gets the best of me sometimes.)

However, I've started noticing recently that I now have to actually talk myself into buying things. On a recent shopping trip south of the border I only bought two things! Shoes that I really did need and a skirt that I absolutely adore. Well, and I split on a bag of chocolate covered potato chips, but I mean...come on. Of course I did. And then an item will come along that I don't need to think about for even a second to know that it is something that is meant for me to buy. Like, for instance, this stunning silk scarf from Fieldguided.

There is a summer sale happening in their shop right now - all Light as a feather scarves are 25% off! Go buy one for yourself, and then maybe that meteorite one for me as a thank you for turning you on to the sale ;)

Film Friday - Camp Life


A delayed post this week, as on Friday I was blissfully disconnected and camping with a fantastic group of people.

A shot from my first time at the best camping spot I've ever been to - morning coffee made on the fire. Does it get any better?

Canada Day

Old Faithful Shop posted these photos today in honour of Canada Day and I thought that they were just lovely.
A Canada Day parade going down Cordova in 1925.

A float from the parade, also (obviously) from 1925.

My plans for this Canada include making meatballs, tidying up and then heading over to Caitlin and Tony's to watch fireworks on their rooftop patio. Not too shabby!
