Hello! I can’t believe we are half way through June, 2015 feels a little like a whirlwind. Seth and I have been going in opposite directions lately and trying to soak up any chance we can to spend time together. The other day we had a few hours free around sunset and headed to Cross […]

real talk
Real talk: Brene Brown
April 29, 2015

I had originally thought I would post a blog about Glossier today and how much I 1. love it and 2. think it does exactly what it claims… but then I got totally distracted by some clips of Oprah’s Lifeclass with Brene Brown. I’ve linked the video below and encourage you to spare 15 minutes […]

Oatmeal, my go to.
April 27, 2015

It snowed here yesterday morning for a good 4 hours. I woke up to the fluffiest snow flakes falling outside my window and was even more surprised when they kept going but by noon they had changed to more of a rain/drizzle and by the afternoon all traces were gone. Spring snow showers can sometimes feel […]

Real talk: Fear
April 21, 2015

  There is one positive thing about spending an afternoon in tears. For me, like many, my eyes get puffy after a tear fest but for some miraculous reason they look good, the puffiness makes my eyes pop in a way that feels like it’s the worlds tiny gift for my emotions. I had a […]

Did you survive Easter weekend? Are you still on a sugar high from the sweet treats? Well this morning I felt like I had been hit by a truck and ended up in a sugar crash coma. All signs of a truly great weekend if you ask my head and heart and not my body […]

eat

I recently heard that it was very Australian to eat a muffin with your morning coffee or latte… as if I needed another excuse to 1. love muffins or 2. love the land down under.   Honestly I’m sure it’s hard to find a human who doesn’t love a muffin but since they can so often […]

Since the beginning of the year I’ve had a monthly drink/food feature in a brand new online magazine called 1905 Magazine. I thought I’d share the a peek into the featured recipes.   1st up in the January issue (page 57) // Home-made Ginger Beer This Ginger Beer recipe is non alcoholic but would make for a […]

Spring time thoughts.
March 19, 2015

Today is the first day of spring for 2015 and I feel old. I remember being told as an 8 year old that once you grow up time ‘flys’ by. I didn’t believe it at the time but they weren’t lying. In some ways I honestly don’t know how it’s not still 2010. I have […]

Tomorrow is St. Patrick’s Day and for me it’s a clear sign that Spring is on the way. I’ve celebrated St. Patrick’s Day my entire life always wearing green and always eating something inspired by my Irish lineage. St. Patrick’s Day has been celebrated in Ireland since the 17th century but it was really just a minor […]

Sweetheart- Day Date
March 11, 2015

I’m so excited to start a new series I’d like to call ‘Sweetheart’ posts. After almost year without University on the forefront of our minds Seth and I have actually entered real life. I’d like to note that real life is tough, full of commitments and responsibilities. If I’m being honest those were still there […]
