More to come. :)
It feels like just yesterday that I opened my Etsy vintage clothing shop, The Gibbson Girl. But today, the shop boasts over fifty items for sale! And I haven’t stopped my search for unique vintage pieces while I’m in Europe. In fact, I’ve had some amazing opportunities to discover truly one-of-a-kind vintage items from unique locales. Here’s a sneak peek of what will be popping up on my shop from my European adventures:
vintage metal cuff // amsterdam
vintage key chains // paris
flea market // paris

New items are added to the shop weekly, so be sure to check back often!
Jumpsuits, rompers, onesies. Whatever you call them, they’ve garnered quite a following. Last Sunday at the Billboard Music Awards, Taylor Swift donned a (controversial) white Balmain jumpsuit that absolutely slayed– and in my opinion paid excellent tribute to her killer new Bad Blood music video.
Pants on the red carpet? Yes, please! Now if we can only convince Cannes that flats are also a chic choice…

My fantasy closet includes these three romper outfits. What are yours?
For just over a year I’ve tried to stick to a modified plant-based diet. Along the way, I ended up deciding to add back in small amount of fish and eggs (for protein and iron), but otherwise, I more or less committed to healthier plant-based eating habits. However, recent travel in Europe and general convenience led to me eat a bit more cheese than I’ve planned.
That said, I’m ready to start feeling better and eating better, so I have some new healthy goals! One way to help achieve a goal is to make your intensions know; build in some accountability. Which is why I’m sharing my goals with you all today.
Goal #1: Increase my iron and protein intake
How? Include at least one serving of iron and protein-rich food a day, along side vitamin C (to help absorb the iron)
Foods: tuna, salmon, spinach
Timeline + Measure: Feel noticeably more energized mid-day and during workouts by June 1st
Goal #2: Improve digestion
How? Include at least one serving of high fiber food a day. Drink ginger tea four time or more a week. Decrease cheese intake to one meal a day or less.
Foods: oatmeal, whole wheat bread, veggies
Timeline + Measure: Evening stomach issues occur less frequently by June 1st
What are your health goals?
The last time I was in Paris (four years ago), I visited the typical tourist attractions: the Eiffel Tower, the Champe des L’Eels, the Louvre… So this weekend, with these main tourist sites of the way (so to speak), I made sure I made time to explore new locals. My sister, a fan of Oscar Wilde, suggested the Cimetière du Père-Lachaise. And I had been determined to visit the Catacombs ever since I tried and failed three years ago (fun fact: they’re closed on Mondays). The result was a day no doubt a bid morbid. But no less inspiring. In truth, there is la beauté dans la mort.
“Yes, death. Death must be so beautiful. To lie in the soft brown earth, with the grasses waving above one’s head, and listen to silence. To have no yesterday, and no to-morrow. To forget time, to forget life, to be at peace.”
