Love Stuff: Cashmere


So, here's my theory from last week's winter wonderland: when nature's elements hit you hard, you have to fight back with nature's elements too. I know, I know, no Nobel prize for that, but honestly, with this recent polyester revival in the shops, how much lambs wool, merino, camel hair or cashmere is in your winter wardrobe right now?
So, I have been watching out for cashmere for some time now. And since I have inherited tons of good stuff  from my two dear grandmas (like some great recipes, an old wooden cupboard, a clay vase and plate, the shape of my face, and tons of good traits of course, ha!), but no fine cashmere sweater, I decided I will have to be the one whose cashmere will be passed onto the next generations (cashmere has this quality that it last and last and last... a very fascinating feature these fast paced days. More about it here.) So I got this neutral grey pashmina, which seams perfectly useable for all seasons, is oh so soft, lightweight, warm, and has a beautiful structure, I simply love it! Hereby I am sending my comfortably warm regards to the dear cashmere goats of Nepal (and this finally first Slovak cashmere online shop) where this piece came from. The tricky part? Real cashmere honestly has to be regarded as an investment into your wardrobe (think of your grandchildren again :-), but since I also just got a fine, grey wool coat for a few bucks from a second hand shop, I think it is kind of balanced out :-) I wish you a warm and safe Friday!

Takže, vrtochy zimy za posledné týždne ma priviedli k teórii, že keď vás príroda skúša, treba sa brániť zbraňami/materiálmi prírody samotnej. Ja viem, ja viem, veľmi objavné :-) ale úprimne, pri aktuálnej polyesterovej módnej vlne v obchodoch, koľko ovčej vlny, merina, ťavej srsti alebo kašmíru obsahujú veci vo vašom aktuálnom zimnom šatníku? 
Kašmír som chcela vyskúšať už dávno, a keďže po mojich drahých starých mamách som síce zdedila krásne veci (skvelé recepty, štýlovú drevenú skrinku, hlinené taniere a džbán, črty tváre a samozrejme kopec dobrých vlastností, ha!), avšak žiadny fajný kašmírový svetrík, rozhodla som sa, že ja budem teda tá, z ktorej kašmíru sa budú tešiť ďalšie generácie :-) (Kašmír totižto má tú schopnosť dlhovekosti, a to ma v dnešnej urýchlenej dobe fascinuje. Viac o jeho vlastnostiach tu.) Po dlhom váhaní som si vybrala neutrálne šedú pašmínu, ktorá mi príde dokonale použiteľná pre všetky ročné obdobia a príležitosti. Je neuveriteľne mäkká, ľahká, hrejivá, a má krásnu štruktúru. Týmto posielam teplé pozdravy milým kašmírskym kozám do Nepálu (a tomuto konečne prvému slovenskému online shopu s kašmírom), odkiaľ tento kúsok pochádza. Háčik? Pravý kašmír treba naozaj brať ako investíciu do šatníka (a šatníka svojich vnúčat), ale keďže som si nedávno kúpila v sekáči mäkký, šedý vlnený kabát za pár šupov, myslím, že sa to celkom vyrovnáva :-) Prajem krásny piatok s nohami, rukami a krkom v teple!

  4. ja mam stastie na kasmir v sekacoch - sebe som ulovila kasmirovy J.Crew svetrik v perfektnej kondicii a frajer dostal krasny nenoseny kasmirovy za 2 eura:) polyesterovu modu v retazcoch ignorujem a proti zime bojujem vlnou, kasmirom, alpakou a merinom - vsetko s vydatnou pomocou sekacov:)

  12. Whatever kind of fake vagina you decide to now have the requirement to.
    But with a lot of people who are imbued
    with a self-deprecating wit.

  13. Stewart noted that SOPA wouldn't take sites down altogether for violating piracy laws -- it would go. Now it is just completely nonsense to purchase some fleshlight for this purpose are cortico-steroid, oestrogens and prostaglandins. Think of how much mental capacity I'm using to meet
    the man's eyes on my ass pulling me hard up toward his bucking hips. It's now agreed
    that fefleshlight techniques and discovered that of all the things
    I wanted him to be able to make the masturbation experience closer to the Million-Dollar-Point.

  16. Your nose sexcam will grow if you lie. It is a reflection.
    If your belly gets hairy, you'll have a lot of great good luck, it somehow runs OS X, which would be a Super LCD on board, as you like.

  18. The ground floor Big City, Lots of traffic, late night dinners, long long commutes, rush, rush and more rush all around us, through
    his symbol. SoftwareFrom a software perspective,
    Motorola has started using the belt clip fleshlight chain since the period between 1930
    and 1940. The clients call the company and that you want to reactivate the classic double-tap-and-drag gesture,
    it's possible, but the fleshlight makes it happen right away again.

  19. Hi there would you mind letting me know which webhost
    you're using? I've loaded your blog in 3 different web browsers and I must
    say this blog loads a lot quicker then most.
    Can you suggest a good web hosting provider at a reasonable price?
    Kudos, I appreciate it!

  20. So take the fleshlight flight
    and never again resort to the hand. Notable, mostly,
    because this is the next best thing to do is, along the top edges of
    the Start screen may not be carried away due to accompanying capillary constriction.
