That's a Wrap!

Hope you all enjoyed the Indian summer Montreal experienced this past weekend, because today is the start of a new week, one that’s headed straight for Frankenstorm. I say this to make sure you’re all perfectly bundled up and ready to face the elements in style, of course. And what better way to do this than wrapped up in a scarf! Luckily, The Backroom has your best interests at heart. From Lanvin to V-Franz to ‘no-name’, we’ve got the scarfs to keep you hot in the cold months ahead.

Beginning with the Kerchief Scarf: Simply fold the square scarf in half to form a triangle. Place the long edge along your neck with the triangle pointing downward. Finally, wrap the ends around your neck and tie a knot. Voila!

The Bundled Scarf: Begin by wrapping the scarf around your neck, then drape it over your shoulders and tuck the end piece into the top back of the scarf.

The Traditional Scarf: Fold the scarf in half and hold it across the back of the neck. Wrap the scarf around the front of the neck and pull the end pieces through the loop. Adjust accordingly.

The Brigitte Bardot Inspired Scarf: Take a square scarf and fold it into a triangle. Fold the triangle in until in meets with the straight line. Put the scarf under your hair and tie the ends (into a bow preferably) at the top and to the side of the head.

The Pretty Bow Peep Scarf: Using a long and thin scarf, tie it into a bow and keep the ends long. Place the bow at the front of the neck.

The Circle Scarf: This scarf is versatile and can be worn many ways. 1. Double up the circle and place around the neck. 2. Double up the circle (or leave it as is) place around the neck, then haul up on the back of the scarf to create a hood. 3.

The Lanvin Scarf: Preferably using a Lanvin scarf, wrap the scarf around the neck so that the ends are at the back. Tie a large bow and place it to the back and to the side.

    Hi there,

    this is actually a template with the website, nothing fancy! It just depends on what website you sign up with.

    Thank you!

    Well to be honest usually the writing aspect just comes naturally to me because I love to write and I always have something to say. However, sometimes if I do get stumped I take a break leave it alone for a few hours then get back to it. It is not always easy but you have to go with what initially comes to you because the more raw and real your post seems the better!

    Thank you, we use a custom template from the wordpress.com website. Running a blog is simply up to you, meaning you can be a frequent blogger or a relaxed blogger. Some blogs are updated daily and others once a week like this one! If your blog is personal to your life it will most likely need to be updated frequently which means the maintenance of your overall site will need to be clean at all times. Most websites such as wordpress, blog spot, or blogger some with preset template so already the bulk of the work is done for you.

    I hope this helps!

    Interesting blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?
    A theme like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make my blog shine.
    Please let me know where you got your theme. With thanks

    amount of work? I’ve no expertise in coding however I was hoping to start my own blog soon. Anyway, if you have any ideas or techniques for new blog owners please share. I understand this is off topic nevertheless I simply wanted to ask. Thank you!

    First of all I would like to say fantastic blog! I had a quick question that
    I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was interested to know
    how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing.

    I’ve had a hard time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out. I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Cheers!
