  4. @miss sophieThanks, Miss Sophie. The loafers are by Church's. I've been eyeing them for quite a while =D

    @KateOoh, quinoa porridge is the best - I mix them with millet and buckwheat groats and let them soak overnight. It takes 5 minutes to cook in the morning and goes fantastic with some cream and maple syrup.

    @lunadayThank you! A yunomi is a Japanese tea bowl, and those were handmade by Rhonda Zeilinga (available at ShopAnaise).

  6. Happy birthday! I've been considering those church's sally.s for a while-- any notes on sizing, etc.? thanks!

  7. @Fleurette Thanks, Fleurette! Hope you're keeping well.

    @Anonymous They run true to size. They initially felt a little large with the size I chose since my heels kept slipping out, but once the soles loosened up a little, the shoes fit well. I got the grey glossy one from Net-a-porter and those run TTS. I think the ones where the leather is smooth stretches out more and runs 1/2 size large. Hope that helps!
