Christmas is hurtling towards me at an alarming speed.

I’m so determined to be prepared and to make all the crafty Christmas gifts I’ve been dreaming about become a reality this year. Top of the list is homemade, 100% natural lip balm. I have spent the evening trolling for recipes and I think I have a good one selected. I’m not exactly confident after reading how tricky it can be to achieve a great final result, but I’m heart set of giving it a darn good try.

And if I fail, I can always fall back on this delicious sounding treat from 5seed on

I’ll be posting my results as it happens and if it actually works out, I’ll be sure to post the final recipe!

Here’s to a homemade Christmas.

cold feet

It’s 48.6 °F in New York and we’re a no shoe household.

Therefore: slippers!

I’ve been wanting this pair of these Cath Kidston sheepskin slippers for a while:

But I’m also rather taken with these little red treasures from J Crew:

And then there’s these from Onstail on Etsy:

Honestly, the latter are probably my favorites. They’re so European and stoic, they suit me to the bone. Besides, who could resist a shop description that reads “My shop just autumn! Share it and the feel the warmth and coziness. I think it is essential to life. There is no bad weather, just bad clothes. Wool is good. It will keep you warm. I wish you all heat and rest. Be eco in wearing felt!”

I want to wear these slippers and a faded black linen dress with a giant chunky knit sweater over the top, as I stare out across my rugged sheep farm in New Zealand. I would be wrapping my hands around a mug of hot tea and enjoying the windy, salty breeze. Obviously. It’s funny where a pair of slippers of slippers can take you.

But maybe my mum will get me the Cath Kidston ones for Christmas…can my cold toes last that long?!

I am also toying with the idea of setting up my own Etsy store and selling some of the things I make. We shall see.

Where Am I?
