All You Need Is Less

The winner!


Winner, by Eighty Acres Art on Etsy

I have chosen a winner! Well, that weird Rafflecopter robot has, I guess is a more accurate statement!

Things have been sort of quiet on this here blog lately – the natural consequence of it being the week before we move. You know, last-minute packing, last-minute chaos, last-minute huge Life Decisions, last minute trying to teach your daughter to say “Papa” when she sees him on Sunday- the usual suspects.

In the midst of all of that chaos I went with a friend to take watch Inside Llewyn Davis, which I really recommend for anyone who needs to feel good about their habit of gypsying around with no definite plan, because at least I am not a chronic couch surfer rolling around Manhattan with an orange cat that doesn’t belong to me! Ha!

But I also can’t sing, so come to think of it I’m not sure who came out ahead on that one. I have thoughts about that movie, but no time to wrangle them, so it’ll have to wait.

SO! Sorry-the winner is…. *folksy drumroll*…. Meg Dereseti! Come on down!

Congratulations Meg! And guys, she so deserves this win because she was a trooper and tried my shampoo/conditioner when I first posted it a while back, and one day she went into work with her hair still a bit wet and was mocked for smelling like ACV – oh the trials and tribulations of wanna-be hippies like us! Try the lemon juice, Meg, and I hope that this book makes up for the emotional suffering you have undergone because of my crazy suggestions.

Please contact me at info(at)sweetmadeleine(dot)ca with your mailing address, and I will pass it on to my publishers, who will ship a book to you!

Aaaand now some Llyewn Davis music for play us out on this dreary Friday.

(p.s. he’s a fictional character. I feel the need to say that because my friend and I both left the theatre fulling intending to dig into his life story and purchase his music and-oops. He doesn’t exist in our world. I felt crushed, and sort of foolish. But his music is still perfect for me right now.)

    Hey Madeline! I know you posted this ages ago but I only recently finished your book from my local library so it’s new to me! Loved your book, a great paring of healthy living and also environmentalism. Anyway thought I’d let you know that Llewyn Davis is loosely based off a folk singer from the 50-60’s called Dave Van Ronk. My husband is a real traditional folky and watches this movie about once a month! Seriously, the guy turns 21 in a few months but is actually a secret 55 year old.
    I’m really enjoying your posts and have even started doing the ACV hair wash. You’re great

      Tenea! Thank you so much for this comment, it made my chaotic Friday a bit better!
      I’m so glad you liked my book, and THANK YOU on the music tip! I will dig into some Dave Van Ronk and use it as my packing soundtrack for these next few days as I move again! 😉
