Zara - my addiction to a label.....
Can you be addicted to a label/brand of clothes? I my little world you absolutely can. And for some odd reasons, all my purchases regarding this brand are made abroad.
Ok - maybe not "odd reason", since the most free time I have on my hands is usually when I am travelling. Oh.... and that statement just sounded like I putting in 70+ workhours per week - which I don't. I have a fairly normal work week and "just" uses all my spare time to do craft or reading good books. But strangely enough, I am more relaxed about shopping for clothes when travelling.
I like Zara because it is good quality - and a lot of the items you can wear both as casual business clothing or leisure time clothing, depending on the specific combination of clothing. And usually the price I end up paying is cheaper than the price at my local store.
Buy locally - I know that that is a mantra for a lot of people these days - actually including myself. See this brand is not locally made, so does it matter, where it is purchased? I actually buy local labels as well, and this is actually the only foreign label - and none of the local ones match Zara's style. When it comes to food, etc. I always make sure, that it is produced locally - and preferably organic.
Stakkevis af bøger fortæller vist, at jeg elsker at læse og heldigvis har masser af bøger der må læses snart på min liste. Udnytter ventetid etc til at hive en bog op af tasken og glemme alt om tid og sted.
Krimier er klart favoritten, men læser et bredt udvalg af andrer genrer også.
BogVen - besøgsven gennem Dansk Røde Kors, hvor jeg bringer bøger til/fra biblioteket og diskuterer en bog, som vi begge har læst
Bloggen her er startet efter, at venner og familie spurgte til, hvad jeg senest havde læst, så de kan hente inspiration. Jeg forsøger at holde en pæn tone af respekt overfor forfattere/forlag.
