It's summer in the city! Ever since I returned from the Disney Wonder, Toronto has been seriously hot. I had planned to continue wearing my cruise capsule for another month or so, but it's too warm out for that by far! As you know, my cruise capsule wardrobe was about 50% clothing for the heat of Mexico and the Bahamas, and 50% clothing for around the ship (a highly air conditioned environment). At this point I'm in need of a 100% warm weather wardrobe, stat!
I'm jumping into my Summer Capsule Wardrobe which I plan to wear for June, July, and August of this year. Let's get into it!Read More
Last year I spent 8 months working for the mouse. Mickey Mouse, that is! I completed a contract as a performer on the Disney Wonder and had a ball of a time.
The only problem? I packed WAY too much. To my credit, I had no idea what one should pack for 6 months at sea… but a guitar, a backpack, and two huge suitcases weighing in at over 70 lbs each? Just a little bit of overkill. (I did eventually get the suitcases down to under 60 lbs each, but it was painful. And believe me, lugging those babies around in the bowels of a ship was NOT a cake-walk).
So as I prepare for my second contract, a quick month, I know I can do better. I am a minimalist now, after all. I have Marie Kondo on my side. I have KonMari in my blood. Ok, maybe I’ve taken this a bit too far… Anyway, I am definitely better equipped this time around to pack minimally for maximal impact.
As I still vividly remember how painful it was trying to decide what to bring and what to leave behind last fall, I thought I would take you along for the ride in the hopes that you can learn from my mistakes and be ready for any opportunity that comes your way!Read More
