Diptyque for me are the most sublime scented candles. Expensive but they burn for hours and smell divine. My favourite is Feu de Bois (woodsmoke) but there are others I love almost as much.

We're all way too attached to our computers, phones and iPods, to the point that switching off and taking time just to contemplate the world around us seems like a radical idea.

Buying less food in the first place also helps so, time permitting, shop little and often.

Due to a 'change in circumstances' (real estate speak for divorce) my daughter and I are about to move from a big house to a small apartment. The thing is I'm excited about moving to a smaller space, especially when I see apartments like this one. So inspiring.
