Striped blue mittens

As with the striped blue hat (coming soon), I have used leftovers and remnants of three different yarns, while trying very hard to make the use of small fragments look like it was done on purpose. The strategy remains the same: I have tried to approach this project like abstract art, focusing on the use… Continue reading Striped blue mittens

“Yogi” bowl, or strawberry and yogurt, topped with granola (345 cal.)

Good morning! If you’re like me, there are mornings when you are in a hurry and you like to find your breakfast already prepared and ready to eat.

My second collection is actually a casual collection that I have created (the proper word is “assembled”) with garments I have already created, separated by colour palettes. In addition to those, I will create new garments as well to… Continue reading My Fall-Winter 2021-22 Ready-To-Wear roadmap

“Once Upon a Time”-Inspired Beret

After surfing the web for an ideal accessory for several hours, I have finally found a free pattern on Ravelry by Leslie Dalton that replicates the beret worn by Mary-Margaret/Snow White in ABC’s Once Upon A Time. I immediately saw its potential: it’s not cosplay, but it’s “inspired by”, it’s a bit preppy, and it… Continue reading “Once Upon a Time”-Inspired Beret

A vegan’s guide to the best plant-based protein sources

This specific post might address beginner vegans rather than experienced ones, but I thought I might cover this basic subject while my blog is still relatively new. Switching to a vegetarian or vegan “diet” (although I prefer the word “lifestyle”) is not the most complicated thing to do. In fact, it’s likely you’ve already eaten… Continue reading A vegan’s guide to the best plant-based protein sources
