Cuts and revelations

If, as the saying goes, a change is as good as a haircut, is a haircut as good as change? I think so. Or in my case it's as good as another item. Even though I lost a lot of locks, I gained a new look. A short bob that was so beautifully styled and … Continue reading Cuts and revelations

Active wear, active wear. Doing stuff in my active wear

The Six Items Challenge allows you unlimited active wear. I was relieved when I read that disclaimer before starting the challenge, because I practice yoga and like to walk and run. Never did I think I would be in my active wear almost as much as my six items. To make my items last, or because … Continue reading Active wear, active wear. Doing stuff in my active wear

Half way to Stockholm

Woohoo!! I am half way through the challenge. Actually, I'm not as excited as I thought I'd be. Perhaps because I'm going through the zen phase of the Six Items Challenge. I've grown accustomed to my dress, trousers, skirt and three tops. They have become a modular uniform of sorts, and a uniform can be reassuring. You always … Continue reading Half way to Stockholm

The good, the bad and the…

I have this constant nagging feeling that something in my life is missing. That's because there is - a whole bunch of clothes. I go through my six items in my head and get to the end and think, surely, there must be more?! Surely... But no. Six. Six items for six weeks really isn't much. But … Continue reading The good, the bad and the…

The customer is always right

Finally, a quiet moment to share my progress. It’s been two weeks plus a day total on my Six Items Challenge, or one week with my new six. I had morning tea with a friend today who asked how my crazy experience was going and the chat moved on to the topic of old favourites in the cupboard … Continue reading The customer is always right

Stacking up, taking stock

Well, I am really happy with my new six items. They're living up to life's challenges - the weather, little sticky fingers, and being able to go to work, shopping, walk the child and dog around the neighbourhood as well as go to the movies all in one outfit, with a change of shoes and … Continue reading Stacking up, taking stock

And the answer was no

You know how in scrabble when have really terrible tiles you can opt to miss a turn to get a new set of seven? Well, that's exactly what I am doing. I don't know what the rules of engagement are for the Six Items Challenge but I have decided to start again. My six choices … Continue reading And the answer was no

6 items update and new look

Follow my blog with Bloglovin It's been a challenge alright! The most challenging thing is keeping my six items clean. I have a 13-month old who loves salmon, blueberries and pumpkin and kumara hummus (not in that order). I pulled my green cotton top out one morning only to find little salmon finger prints all … Continue reading 6 items update and new look
