Quaint (n): pleasingly or strikingly old-fashioned or unfamiliar; unusual or different in character or appearance; marked by skillful design; marked by beauty or elegance.
The Quaint Life is a thoughtfully curated space built on the foundations of Scripture to inspire and encourage intentional and slow living.
Embracing our roles as daughters of the King, we live each day with an Eternal mindset and yet are fully present in the moment. Guided by the natural rhythm of the seasons, working with willing hands, we live a little closer to nature to uncover a more simple way of life. Knowing our bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, we seek to daily nourish the cells and the soul. As good stewards we value ethical and mindful consumerism, and seek to honor God with our time, talent, and treasure.
The Girl Behind
The Quaint Life
Well hello there! My name is Isabel and I am 24 years old. I'm a born and bread WI girl, now living with my parents in the Chicago metro area. I graduated from college in 2018 (after 6 long years) with my BSE in Biology and Natural Science. I love biology and nature, and you'll find that in addition to being rooted in Scripture, much will be supported with science.
My passion for natural and simple living has hints in high school, but really took root throughout my college years. I've been writing and creating for as long as I can remember, but an issue with perfectionists is that we get caught up in the dreaming phases and let fear keep us from taking the leap. Creating and curating content that teaches, encourages, and inspires others has been a dream of mine since High School, and now that dream is becoming a reality.
About my lifestyle:
- Whole food plant based (although not strict)
- Slow, ethical, and historically inspired fashion
- Sustainable and low waste
- Holistic and natural approach to life and wellness
Elevating Christ above all else.
