At Summer’s End

At Summer’s End

Summer is warm and pink, the same floral dress worn day in and day out. Open in the back to let a rare breeze flow through. Berries for breakfast, lunch, and dinner; an endless flow of sparkling liquids. Rain all day, nights spent running through […]

What’s A Witch To Wear In The Summer?!

What’s A Witch To Wear In The Summer?!

Summer can be a glorious time of year for those who love bright colors, endless tans, and as little amount of clothing as possible. It can be a literal Hell for those who live in black and feel naked without the regulated J.Crew third layer, […]

Summer is possibly one of my favourite times to read. The long evenings filled with stretching shadows and golden light, the bright mornings dusted with birdsong, even the drizzle-heavy days where the flowers dampen and we all complain about the humidity; the warmest months of the year demand to be filled with books. Personally, I try to fill my summer reading lists with a healthy mix of new reads, old favourites, and texts assigned for my next year of study. Sometimes I achieve this balance but most of the time I’m reading too much of the first two categories and too little of the last. Below you will find what might typically be found stuffed into my suitcase as my family trek off to Devon and Cornwall for a week or two. I hope you find something new or are reminded of something loved long ago!

Summer is the season I always associate with having the time to settle into a good book or two. Most good tv has finished by the end of July and there’s nothing new on the horizon until September. There’s an abundance of long evenings to […]

When summer hits, I reach for books that are page turners. I’ve read every single one of these before, and I come back to them again and again. Before my son was born, I used to lay in bed all day and read a book cover-to-cover, and now it’s quite difficult to get the time to do that so it’s nice to read books that feel quick. Here are quick and feel quick books for these hot, lazy, and not so lazy days. Enjoy!

There is possibly no greater pleasure than reading a good book while in a state of absolute relaxation. I look forward to my own summer break in August – papers are still being written, as are articles for this beloved Attic of ours, and my […]

To me, the best summer reads are hundreds of pages long, allowing the reader to escape from the sweltering heat and the drone of lawnmowers. Summer isn’t my favourite season, but I certainly loved the freedom it once brought when I was a student as […]

A Sunscreen to Rule Them All?

A Sunscreen to Rule Them All?

Summer is here and, consequently, so is a season some of us have to fear when it comes to skincare. Summer means sun, and sun means SPF, and SPF can be a cause for skin problems. SPF is a necessity, but so many sunscreens can be heavy or greasy or leave behind a white cast that changes our entire look.

As we here at the Attic not only have different types of skin, but have different access to various products around the world, we thought we’d go around and share some of our favorites.

Thanks to years of summers off, summer is universally thought of as the time to read. Weekends spent on the beach, evenings lounging in a garden hammock, days spent sitting in front of a fan on the tile floor of your tiny apartment with a […]
