This or That: Camping or Hotel?

this or that: camping or hotel - drifter and the gypsy blog

I love camping because it usually entails spending a weekend with friends, or my boyfriend, chatting around the fire and roasting marshmallows, hiking, and swimming. I also like that it’s forced time away from technology and I get to spend more time reading or working in my sketchbook instead.

What about you, would you rather spend your vacation time outdoors or do you prefer the comforts of a hotel? – Emily

This or That: Cooking or Baking?

this or that: cooking or baking?

I love cooking! Unless it’s something I’ve never made before, I usually don’t follow a recipe and wing it. Baking generally requires a little more precision. I love the challenge of figuring out what to make from what I have in my fridge, and then I feel so resourceful when I throw something together that tastes delicious!

This or That: Coffee or Tea?

this or that: coffee or tea? - drifter and the gypsy blog

I love coffee, perhaps a little too much. I wasn’t sleeping very well, so I stopped drinking coffee a week ago and replaced it with tea. Even though tea still has caffeine, it seems to have less of a jittery affect on me. I’m happy to say I’ve been sleeping much better so far!

What about you? Do you need to have that cup of joe first thing in the morning, or is tea more your thing? – Emily

This or That: Vintage or New?

this or that: vintage or new? - drifter and the gypsy blog

When I was in high school, I wore wacky clothes that I found at thrift stores. It was all about the story and about standing out and being an individual. Then college I had my first office job, along with a little extra money to spend, so I had fun buying boots and handbags and other investment pieces that I would wear forever. I would have to say that more recently, I’ve preferred browsing the thrift store racks for that perfect something, because it feels unique and personal and not to mention better for the earth.

What about you? Do you wear vintage clothes or new ones? – Emily

This or That: Autumn Leaves or Spring Flowers?

Remember when every Monday used to be This or That? We took a break over the summer and now we’re bringing it back here on Drifter & the Gyspy!

Except this time we have a new columnist, Emily. Emily is a watercolor artist and illustrator living in San Francisco. You can read more about her on the about/contributors page. I’ve been a fan of her work for quite some time and am happy to have her joining the D&tG team!

Here’s her first This or That:

this or that: leaves or flowers - drifter and the gypsy blog

Albert Camus once said “Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.” While San Francisco’s fall foliage isn’t as impressive as some places, (ahem, New England), I would have to say I prefer autumn leaves. Where I live, fall is the most beautiful time of year, since our summer can be a bit foggy.

I’m looking forward to breaking out my fall boots, and crunching through some leaves. How about you? Which one do you prefer?Emily

This or that: Floppy sun hat or sunglasses?

The beautiful summer officially here! Yay! Before you jump in your sexy bikini or maillot and put a sunscreen on (don’t forget about it!), answer my last “This or That” question for this season.

this or that: floppy sun hat or sunglasses

What is your summer must have outfit? I can answer without a hesitation: sunglasses. I have one pair only and I have them with me everywhere I go. However I love big floppy hats so who knows, maybe I will get one this summer too?

Have a lovely summer everyone! – Asia (This or That contributor)

This or that: Chaotic or ordered?

this or that: chaotic or ordered - drifter and the gypsy blog

Oh my wardrobe! I wish it could be orderly, but it is not. Let’s be honest, I am the rather messy one. Do you remember when I told you about my desk and the “creative mess”? The same is with my wardrobe. I don’t know how it happens, but I can clean my wardrobe and organize everything, but the order disappears after a few days *sigh*.

Maybe I have too any clothes…? Hmmm, I don’t think so;) How about you and your wardrobe? Is it chaotic or ordered? – Asia
