Silverwhitewinters is a weekly lifestyle and culture newsletter created by Micki Rose, a natural health writer, researcher and former clinician at Purehealth Clinic. You’ll find loads of natural health guidance, books, lab tests etc. there.
Named after a line Julie Andrews sings in My Favourite Things from The Sound of Music by Rogers & Hammerstein, each week SWW will deliver an eclectic collection of inspiring, informative – and hopefully entertaining – odds and sods to your inbox.
I confess, as I start this, it seems like a calling for me to do it and I’m not quite sure what it will include yet! Probably book reviews, places to visit, inspiring architecture, products I love (not toxic candles: pet hate No.1), interior design, colour, anything nature-based, things to make, recipes, crafts, thought-provoking articles, opinion pieces – if they encourage sustainable and conscious living, all the better.
A silverwhitewinter, for me, invokes a feeling of peace, beauty and purity, with a good dash of sparklyness and joy thrown in – and this sets the theme for this newsletter. I will be following the seasons round, not wittering about Winter all the time, don’t worry.
I’m a minimalist at heart. I’m drawn to calming, beautiful places, people, animals and activities, but I also love blowsy maximalist flowers (dahlias: pet love No.1), rich colours, live music, even a bit of bling here and there.
I truly hope you enjoy a few of my favourite things with me. They say what you focus on, you become and get more of in life. Yay. I don’t know about you but I need me more of this!
Disclosure – How this site makes money
I use affiliate links in some of my content and on social media. If you buy something I write about through one of these links, I’ll earn a small commission from the retailer. It doesn’t cost you anything, but it does mean that I can continue to write stuff I hope you’re enjoying.
I may also carry adverts in the newsletters and hope you click on them and support any sponsors.
Sometimes I might receive products to review or do other stuff I don’t pay for, but this doesn’t guarantee I’ll cover it – I am very picky. I’ll always let you know when I’m writing about something I didn’t pay for.
