I'm Janice Ruste

Writer & Designer

I'm all about that coffee life with a love for books, knitwear, flowers, and dogs. I have a degree in Interior Design, and writing is my passion. This blog was born out of my desire for a calming life and home, where I can do all the things I cherish – nurturing my family, creating art, getting lost in books, whipping up delicious treats, and tending to my garden. In the MBTI world, I'm an INFP, which means I'm a highly creative empath. With my family of four, I call New Zealand our home sweet home.

Where To?


Experience some serene bits of my life in New Zealand through calming and silent vlogs. Join me in exploring the world of traditional homemaking, urban gardening, and self-care.
