in fashion, interiors, & WELL BEING,
while trying to live life a bit more sustainably. 

bonjour! i'm mary:
welcome to my blog.

I’ve been intimidated to write this post. I had every intention of having this finished by Monday, but nerves kept stopping me. Every time I tried, I conveniently found eighty other things that all of a sudden had to be done immediately. But I really wanted address the question of why I don’t want to […]

Why I Don’t Want a Brick and Mortar

August 1, 2018
