…CELEBRATING! Birthdays are for celebrating!!

It’s a BIG one this year and I wanna party like I’m not old yet! (or not old soon either) 😀 Which is why I’ve decided to celebrate as much as possible for the entire week. Yeah, you heard me…how often does the decade-o-meter flip over?!?

So let’s do this… Let’s party! Grab your favourite imaginary dish and drop a link to your blog’s most recent post in the comment section!

Requiem For a Sweater

lifexperimentblog

My old friend.

How happy I was to pull you from the wardrobe today.

It was my horror to find a hole in the front of you.

We discussed sweater surgery,

but you were beyond repair.

So it was my sad news

to have to throw you in the refuse.

I will miss you my old, brown friend.

The warm embrace of your cashmere,

wrapped around me on a cold winters day.

The comfort of being stretched-out just ‘so’

as to rival the most comfy college Tee.

I will miss having a sweater that matches everything

My wardrobe ‘go-to’,

now a footnote in my style notebook.

I don’t think I’ll ever be able to replace you,

my favourite cashmere sweater.

A sad day in closet land,

Amazon, WTF?! #weird

lifexperimentblog

Good day 🙂

I hope you are all well!

Most of us have a habit of scrolling through the internet when we get a bit bored. My weakness is online shopping. Not just because I love to torture myself with all the beautiful things I cannot have, but because I have a true interest in the retail sector. It all began with my ultimate frustration in not being able to easily find the gorgeous design worthy items I love in 100% natural fabrics. I still have this problem, though I have managed to find a few great stores. Anywho, I digress. Because of this fixation, I actually have to spend a LOT of time scrolling, scrolling, scrolling…  I almost always share my happy finds with you guys.

I scroll through Amazon quite often. It takes awhile, but there are some really good finds there. While digging through, I come across…

Back to Basics

lifexperimentblog

In a world where we are driven to obtain the newest, the coolest, the best and most expensive items at an ever increasing rate, I’ve finally had enough.

One really can’t help to notice the discrepancies in society. People are living in war zones, being tortured, brutally murdered, starving, trying to escape in any way possible. And what do the rest of us do? We shop. We shop for the newest and most stylish furniture. We shop the latest trends and fashions. We buy cheap crap that does absolutely nothing but take up space. And why do we do it? Because we’re told we have to…for a multitude of reasons.

  • We need to ‘bolster’ the economy
  • We must keep up with the Jones’s
  • Little Johnny won’t understand an investment into his future, best buy him a toy he may or may not play with
  • We must surpass the Jones’s
  • To…

Fit for Friday! From Work to Weekend; A Transitional Clothing Collab with T.M. Lewin #fitforfriday @TMLewin

Really excited about doing this transitional workwear collab with T.M. Lewin UK! Fit for Friday!

lifexperimentblog

Hello all 🙂 It’s Friday after work and the perfect time for this Fit for Friday feature!

Today, I am super-excited about this post! When the opportunity to create a Men’s/Women’s versatile office wear collaboration with T.M. Lewin UK presented itself, I jumped on it! As many of you know, I am a bit conservative in my fashion choices, preferring classic pieces with a modern twist that can be used for a variety of different circumstances. I do love fashion, and trends. However, I have found that people get more use for their money with a few highly tailored, versatile pieces than with say… a closet full of clothes that can only be designated for certain social situations. (i.e.; Club clothes, funeral wear, ‘meet the parents’ gear, etc.).

I am very excited about T.M. Lewin because they have really made all of my dreams come true in the fabric department…

Sustainable Fashion Feature: Shift to Nature

This is a feature I posted this weekend. I have been on the hunt for the best and coolest sustainable fashion stores worldwide, and this one was awesome 🙂

lifexperimentblog

Greetings all!

As many of you know already, I have been on the hunt for friendly, fashionable, sustainable, fashion houses with great customer service which utilize sustainable business practices. And I found a great eco-fashion start-up that goes by the name of Shift to Nature, in Australia. They are awesome! Truly, super-cool and incredibly friendly and cooperative people! So much so, and I have to tell you this because it just never happens, that I was put in contact with the owner and personality of Shift to Nature and she is the one who made sure that every single one of my questions were answered, that I had all the facts, and went WAY above and beyond the call of duty to make sure that we have everything we need to make our own evaluations of the company! (and she returned all 8 million of my emails) This fact, in and…

Reblog link list party not party.

*Please read the post before commenting

Hi all 🙂

If the title to this post is a bit of a head-scratcher, please allow me to explain. Since reblogging seems to be a bit of a hot-potato issue, I decided that I would just straight up ask all of you, to please let us know whether you are pro-reblog or anti-reblog. There is no judgement here, or explanation needed. It would just be simpler to know and share those blogs which encourage their followers to reblog, and to be aware of the blogs that would rather keep their content original, so that people will know to respect your wishes and not hit that reblog button.

So here’s my thinking: Everyone is more than welcome to join. The more, the merrier! I will, at a later date, be posting a comprehensive list (or several, dependent on the level of interaction) of sites…
