The matter of small talk. You know?

When was the last time you had a conversation with a human face? If someone was to ask you a few questions off the cuff, what would your response be? What would you say? What would you ask? When was the last time you had a conversation for the purpose of purely conversing? It is very important that we take the time to talk and to discover new things about each other.

In an time when speaking face to face is almost foreign, let us give ‘small talk’ some serious dap! It’s a great way to pass the time and you might learn a thing or two. Here are a few questions that might make your next human contact meeting quite interesting.

What’s the most unbelievable thing that’s ever happened to you?

Are you reading any good books right now? I’d love some recommendations. How about shows?

Are there any apps on your phone that you can’t live without?

If you could only watch one genre of movies for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Do you have any podcast suggestions for my drive?

Oh, and just because talking is great, let’s not forget about her good friend listening. It makes for a neccessary part of the art of conversation. ;)

That’s the fresh perspective…

Book Club with Olivia

Freshair Boutique

Welcome to the first entry of Olivia’s book club! Here you will find suggestions for great reads, reviews on some past reads & possibly some book bashing. Here we go!

Follow Me Down - Sherri Smith

Written by a Winnipegger, this is a thriller that will lock you in instantly. Every time you think you’ve figured something out, you’ll end up with 3 more questions. Just trust me on this one.

The Girls-Emma Cline

Initially you think this book is about a cult set in the 60’s and that was enough for me to pick it up. But it’s really about a teenage girl navigating her insecurities, trying to figure out who she is and where she belongs. Sometimes you’ll want to shake her but if you’ve ever been a teenage girl, you can definitely empathize with her as well. Easy, quick read.

The Fresh Perspective...

Freshair Boutique

March is upon us and Marie Kondo Netflix special is fired up and ready to play. The best way to start out a new month - especially when exiting the winter blues - is to PURGE! Take some time this weekend to go through your clothes, knick-knacks & all things that are collecting dust or do not serve you any purpose. If you don’t have time to watch the hottest show right now, let me summarize some tips to get you on the fast track to ultimate organization & peacefulness. (You’re welcome). Disclaimer: I may or may not abide by these rules…

Step 1: Make sure everything has a place

Ok, this I can get behind. Nothing is more frustrating that not being able to find something you just put away the day before. Make sure everything has a place and if you can’t find one, maybe you don’t really need it.

Step 2: Get rid of papers

Makes sense. Papers, like old bills, pile up very quickly, many of which you really don’t need at the end of the day. Pull out the shredder!

Step 3: Don’t pile things - store vertically instead

This will make everything easier to find! Extra ambitious? Colour code as well!

Step 4: Only keep items of clothing that bring you joy

Sure? I mean, I guess most of my crew neck t-shirts don’t really bring me too much joy but I still wear them all the time. I’m not too sure about this rule or how to follow this rule… Just get rid of clothes you don’t wear after 6 months to a year (season permitting of course).

Step 5: Keep small change in your wallet

UMM, I disagree! I recommend throwing your small change into a piggy bank because there will come a time when you have some free time and you get to have the joy of organizing & counting all of your coins and small bills. Then, what to do with that money? Treat yourself! I feel so passionate about this one point because I just had a nice little surprise pay day this past weekend when I decided to count mine ;) Thermea here I come.
