18th Day in a Chic September

For the month of September I plan to document daily steps I have taken towards a chic, elegant and healthy life. My goal is to keep uppermost in my mind the kind of life I want to live. I will be focusing on all the small things I do each day that lead me towards my goal, rather than away from it.

Here are today’s mini-chic accomplishments:

Upon waking to a wildly stormy morning complete with torrential rain and hail, it seemed the perfect day to hunker down. Even though it wasn't that chilly (apparently hail means it's cold up high, not near ground) it was a nice time to snuggle inside.

I put the slowcooker on and made a beef casserole and apart from having a shower and putting a load of washing out, that's pretty much all the work I did. Sunday is a day of rest after all, and I have had a blissfully relaxing day.

I am enjoying browsing through Romantic Prairie Style which I'm so glad our library had. I've read Parisienne Farmgirl's blog for quite a while and her home is featured. I feel like I know her gorgeous family through her blog so it was exciting to see more of her incredible style.

I think Romantic Prairie Style is a serious contender for my home library. But not until we've moved. I am banning myself from adding anything to our home inventory for now.

I can enjoy my libary copy for a month though, and be inspired to make a bit more of an effort in my decorating. Also not be afraid to change up or paint a cheap and chic piece of second-hand furniture. Watch out new house, I'll be raring to go!


If you feel like you want to make September a chic month for you as well, please join me. You are welcome to share your mini-chic accomplishments for the day (or the previous day if you read in the morning) in the comments section. It would be lovely to have you along for the ride!

  1. I love stormy, rainy spring days! Thanks for the reminder of that book...I have wanted to check it out too. Bliss

  2. I have just added the book to my library holds. Looks very interesting. Thanks for the suggestion.

  3. Bliss and Donna, it amazes me how creative some people are, and it doesn't always need unlimited funds. Parisienne Farm has four children and says they have a small budget.

  4. Hello Fiona,
    I do not particularly favor stormy weather but it is one of the nicest things when you can spend a stormy day curled up inside. and I like that you are excited for your house! :)

  5. Lenna, stormy weather can be a bit scary, and also inconvenient if you have to be out and about, but a rainy day when you plan to be at the home is the best combination I agree!


Merci for your comment. Wishing you a chic day!
