My name is Jean.
I’m interested in lots of things and I’m always trying something new. I love fashion, art, film, music, literature, decor. I like style. People with style, clothing with style, buildings or even packaging – as long as some effort was put into style.
I’m a writer and an artist. I sometimes teach ESL. I like making things. I was born in Toronto, Canada. I travelled around and landed in Seattle, USA. I’m a vegan. I love my cats and my dog. I have an adorable husband who puts up with all my endeavors.
I hope to use this blog to share my ideas with you. People have called me quirky, stylish, creative. You be the judge.
I’m not master of all; I’m Jean of all Trades.
I take all of my own photos with my Canon Powershot XS210 IS unless otherwise stated. Occasionally, my husband catches an action shot for me but he doesn’t like to take the credit.
I am not compensated for sharing my ideas about products. They are simply my opinions. I hope you enjoy reading them. If I’m given a product, I’ll list it as c/o, to show it was given to me. I write honest opinions and work hard not to be influenced by gifts or loaner products.
I love hearing from readers! Email me or comment on posts. I feel it builds community and makes blogging more fun. However, if your comment includes links to ads or giveaways or contests (anything other than your blog address), I reserve the right to delete the comment or the links. Thanks for understanding.
I gave a up new leather and wool a few years ago (to align with my vegan lifestyle). I used to wear second-hand stuff, and you’ll still see some older posts that include them. But as of April 2013, I realigned my wardrobe so it’s free of all leather, wool and silk. I never wore fur or feathers, so you won’t see any of those here.
