She wore it on a trip to Paris and said, “I just felt like I could stand amongst the Parisian women who all know how to wear scarves well, and hold my head high”.Tracy’s Immersive Writing WorldShe may not have done her KonMari Marathon yet, but Tracy has already embraced an important KonMari concept. She has surrounded herself with joy. Tracy’s home studio is the perfect example of this. In creating an immersive world for herself in which to write, she has built joy into her daily life and surroundings…"So I love looking up and going, ahh, you’re surrounded with your writing life and reminders of your writing life. And then beyond the cubby holes (on the walls on either side of me), I paste up quotes, photographs and drawings from whatever I’m working on at the time".Tracy has her very own cabinet of curiosities. Her study features cubby holes, where she curates memorabilia from her books.

If not, dare to say no.Style NotesJust because everyone else says you should do something, it doesn’t mean you need to follow their advice. Like Tracy, you can choose not to wear red lipstick.

Episode 8. Today we’re shifting gears a bit. This episode is all about you! Each month I do a special Ask Alexandria episode, where I answer your questions about life, KonMari and style.

We discuss style, from capsule wardrobes to makeup tips. And you’ll hear how Jane Austen helped me get my start in the world of fashion and style.Here are some highlights...How to tame your digital photosBe more intentionalTo be master of your digital universe (specifically your photos), like so many things in life, it’s all about shifting your mindset. Let’s be honest… On a scale of 1 to 10 how intentional are you when you’re snapping pics on your phone? If you would describe yourself as “snap happy”, are you willing to invest the time it takes to sort through all these images?Discard, organise & maintainFirst focus on discarding. Slidebox is a great app to help you get all your photos under control. It’s a free app for iPhone and Android. It’s nicely designed and syncs seamlessly with iCloud. You can swipe up to quickly put photos in the trash.
