books / review / self-improvement

In case you haven’t noticed, I am alllll about self-improvement. It’s not because I think I’m so messed up (although let’s not pull at that thread), but rather that I think, as humans, it’s essential that we keep learning, keep growing, and keep opening our minds to different possibilities. That being said, one of the most effective books I read last year was Better than Before: What I Learned About Making and Breaking Habits, by […]

I really need this weekend to recharge, and even though I have a boatload of homework (ugh), my plan is to do just that. In […]

health / healthy / tips

Hello and happy hump-day! Today’s post is going to be all about health and fitness. As it goes every year, January is kind of the rev-up month for health goals and by mid-February, your morning run gets replaced with a morning snooze, the veggies get swapped for bbq chips, and everyone generally has that ‘well, f*ck it’ attitude towards their health goals. Why does this happen?? I can’t speak for everyone, but I know that […]

a walk in the snow

lately / nature / winter

Despite all of my bitching and moaning, I do like some things about winter. Like fresh snow, for example. And walks with this one: Like the perfect light…  And the quiet stillness. A few Sundays ago, we joined our friend Tobias for a long, leisurely stroll around my favorite reservoir. Tobias was a doll and took some lovely photos of me and Conrad. …only to be upstaged by the bromance going on here: I might […]
