Finding the chic in everyday life

I love eating, cooking, crafting, zumbaing, ice skating, and lots of other randomness.

First generation organic.

Since December 2008, I've lost 15 lbs and I hope to continue my healthy habits of nutritious eating + frequent, fun exercising.

Hello again,
Your post reminds me of the one I did here: when we were in the thick of finalising our packing. It just arrived with us and on Saturday we unpacked it. And in some circumstances are surprised at the things we packed! We must have been losing our minds toward the end of it ;) We did try to be as concise as possible (shipping from NZ to London being a tad pricey) but I think the pressure of the detailed inventory (my hand became claw-like from writing too much!) we just let it slide. Now we are in our new London apartment and having to sort stuff out this end too. We had a little purge on Sunday and another is upcoming this weekend.
Those cupcakes look tasty - ultimate packing food :)

hi diana!
i saw your blog referenced in jessica's post -- i don't know if you saw, but we are having a blogger gathering at six plates on nov 19, and i'd love you to come! send me an email ([email protected]) and i will pass on the evite!


Packing tips.....label all of your boxes. By room, by items. It helps with the day of your move (if you have people helping you) because those people can put your boxes in the room they belong. And if you have a list of the items on the box, it makes unpacking WAY easier! We moved last December. Our kitchen was already set up for us before the last box was brought into the house (because one of our friends unpacked the "kitchen" boxes.) :)

And anything that's breakable should be wrapped and packed properly - our friends ignored the "fragile" labels. So did my movers several years ago. We only lost one bowl last year.

Good luck!!


Well, my moving advice is going to be too little too late for you I'm afraid, but, I start 30 days out from our move date and set a goal of x number of boxes that must be packed each day. (The last time we moved x was 4, I think this time, with Jack and all his stuff I need to make x = 6 or 8.) It spreads the job out and means when moving day comes you can just load and go. I think this time I am going to rent a pod thing so that each day's boxes can go into the pod and be out of the way.


hey girl..that pasta you made sounds delish. I love Mario B! ;) I don't have too many tips for packing as I'v never really done a big move like that. Only for school...and I basically just tossed it all into boxes and shoved it into the parents truck :P but good luck! lol
