About

Josette | Made of Mint

Josette is a diminutive form of Joséphine, which is my given name. I go by Jo as well. Funny story — my parents each knew what they wanted to call me but didn’t think to actually discuss this before I was born. My father filled out the forms at the hospital without consulting my mother. She meant to name me Bernadette. She also says with all that peppermint tea I’ve drunk over the past two decades, it must course through my blood by now. Hence, the name of this blog: Made of Mint.

While I’ve been blogging for several years, Made of Mint came about in February 2017. This is a literary lifestyle blog, of sorts. It’s a platform for me to share things that matter to me, such as photography, food, general observations, and more. You may subscribe to Made of Mint via Bloglovin’, Feedly or RSS.

If you’d like to get in touch, you may do so via email or Twitter. I’m also happy to connect over books on Goodreads.

Here’s what I’m currently reading:

The House of Mountfathom
A Gathering of Shadows
