And like everybody else on Twitter, I learned how to bake bread. Unlike a lot of people, I’m incredibly fortunate: “I can comfortably work from home and neither my… Continue reading How will this crisis affect minimalism?
I am always on the lookout to lower my ecological footprint. If you follow me on Instagram, you would have noticed all the sustainable swaps I tried or am in the process of testing out.

Last year, I was invited to my cousin’s wedding.
