WISHES + SPOILS
"Buy Less, choose well, make it Last” as the famous phrase from fashion designer Vivienne Westwood goes; applies both to what I put on my body but especially about the items I keep inside my home. Since relocating to Europe I have been embracing a slow living and more minimalist lifestyle; over-consumption and materialism are not very appealing to me. Excess waste feels vulgar, and further hurts the environment. So I am not the type of woman who needs or wants an overflowing wardrobe, racks of shoes or even more lingerie. However, a well curated home full of original art, books and a few investment pieces adds to the quality of my life in measurable ways!
Gifts are never expected, but if you'd like to make my day (and in a few instances, actually change my life) you will find my wishlist and wishlist link below. The items that advance my hobbies and add to the comfort of my home are the most meaningful. If you would like to gift me something not listed on my wishlists, please ask me first.
