Notes from the Weekend & a Few Lovely Links

THIS WEEKEND WE were glued to the news, trying to find more information about the missing van-life blogger Gabby Petito and the generally strange circumstances surrounding the entire case. Coincidentally, we had been talking about the whole #vanlife phenomenon which has swept social media the past few years, because P had been watching Youtube videos of tiny homes and the algorithm began throwing converted vans across his path. We had been discussing how difficult it must be for couples to be confined to such a small spaces for such long periods of time, and had been drawing parallels to the case with the British hiker Esther Dingley, whose body was found near Port de la Glere (a mountain pass on the French-Spanish border) on August 9. The discussion naturally moved to the portrayal of life on social media versus real life. It’s something we talk about a lot, and perhaps something I might explore further in an upcoming article…

This week’s links include sailor stripe sweaters for autumn days and oysters as the answer to cleaner oceans; 100 tips for a better life, and much, much more.
