Today I'd like to share with you a few things that are bringing me light in these dark times. I hope they bring you some joy too.
It’s hard to know what to say in this unprecedented, uncertain time. All the information (and misinformation) can be totally overwhelming and when you add in untrained homeschooling, job stress and negotiating the empty grocery store, it can easily send you into meltdown.
As we all adapt to this situation, I want to share with you things I find positive and inspirational. In an effort to “look on the bright side” these may be podcasts, articles, newsletters or an instagram feed. I hope you find these interesting and please let me know of things you are finding helpful or inspiring too.
Our Behind the Bag blog series will continue too and we have some beautiful people coming up. I hope you are enjoying these and please let me know if there are any other questions you’d like me to slip into the interview or people you’d like to see featured.
First up on the list…
Newsletter The Design Files - if you’re not already subscribed, do it!! With a bit of everything - homes, art, gardens, jobs and always beautiful photos you can scan the weekly summary to see what interests you or opt for the daily email. Image via their Instagram feed which is also lovely!
Podcast All The Dirt is a favourite podcast of mine with a special episode on how to grow food effectively and quickly and you don’t need a huge space to do it. The kids and I have listened to it and we're planning some action in the next few days!
Instagram Not long after we moved from Singapore, this talented girl arrived - Lottie Is Loving. I’ve cooked her recipes (the Lemon Olive Oil Rosemary Cake is the bomb), done a workshop through The Assembly Hall and turned on notifications for her Instagram feed. The Lottie is Loving feed is light, bright and exactly the tonic my eyes need right now. I think you’ll love it.
