Times Like These

To say that much has changed in the last few weeks would be an understatement. We are all finding our way during this new norm, but to try and stay on the positive side of it we find ourselves with more time to reflect, to be still.

Spending more time in nature has been one of the things we’ve been enjoying the most, while also feeling “less” guilty about starting a new series, watching a favourite movie for the fourth time or taking the time to try an elaborate recipe. We all feel the world has hit pause in some ways and for the busy lives most of us carry, times like this can also be nice…

We wanted to bring you some of our favourites books, movies, blogs, online magazines and more. We hope during this time you get a chance to do something you like, change an old habit and start a fresh one, appreciate your favourite walk, check in with friends, give grandma a call and cook your favourite meal.

Hope you enjoy sharing in what we’ve been up to,

Victoria x
