What is folklore and why is it important

You will probably have heard of folktales or traditional stories. They are usually about real life events or imaginary creatures who live in nature. But they are not all that folklore is about.
Folklore encompases all the traditional beliefs, customs, tales, dances and sayings of a group of people. It’s passed down through generations and is often handed down orally.

My year-round 40-item capsule wardrobe (that is not just neutrals and basics)

I’ve been dressing using a capsule wardrobe for almost a decade now. I don’t think I even knew what a capsule wardrobe was at the time to be honest. I just new I wanted to have less clothes and a wardrobe that was easier to get dressed with.
I have never got rid of any items or done a declutter. What I did instead was to stop buying! And to use what I already had, but in a more organised way. When I started I had 5 suitcases full of clothes. Right now, I have only 1 and a small bag of shoes. This way of doing it takes longer, but I find it more sustainable and also helps me save money.

Photo collection: daffodils

These photo collections or mini digital scrapbooks are meant as a way to help everyone slow down and appreciate different aspects of nature and life in general. It could serve as inspiration to create something or just as a 5-minute break while you have a cup of tea.
Sometimes photos will come from stock photograph sources, sometimes they will be mine, and sometimes they will be a combination.
Hope you enjoy this little collection of daffodils.
