One of my new year’s resolutions this year was to do absolutely no shopping for one year. My decision to make this resolution is partly due to the realisation that I had way, WAY more clothes than I was actually wearing (thank you, moving) and partly thanks to this article by Ann Patchett.  I decided that, for one entire year, I would not buy anything that was not consumable or something that I absolutely needed. Things […]

Are you all sick of those ‘New Year, New Life” posts (that are so popular every January) yet?  Well, let’s hope not, because here’s one more! Let’s be honest: on the whole, 2016 sucked. Personally, it was not that bad a year, but globally, 2016 can truly Kiss. My. Ass.  (Pardon my French.) I still don’t know what I’m doing with this blog, with my life, with my career, or with anything really*, but I’m […]

It’s that time of year, folks! In keeping with last year’s tradition, I’m setting several goals (rather than making resolutions) for this next year. I personally find broad goals a lot easier to work towards in contrast to strict resolutions – that’s always been a big struggle for me –  so without further ado, here are my personal goals for 2016! {image via} 1.

As 2015 comes to an end, I can’t help but look back on the past year (which feels like it just started – where does the time go????). Personally, this year was…epic. Filled with so much love, lots of travel, great food, amazing friends and family, some big changes and even bigger losses, and more joy than I ever thought possible, 2015 may have been the best one yet. I can only hope that 2016 […]

Hi friends! First, I apologize for my ridiculously long absence. I could blame it on being busy, moving homes, travelling between continents, etc., etc., but to be honest….I just needed a break! Without much advance planning, I took a nice, long, blog (and computer) break and, not gonna lie, IT FELT GOOD. I now feel much more energized and excited to be back! Second, happy new year 2015! How’s the new year treating you so […]

Happy new year! I am one of those people who LOVES anything to do with new beginnings, fresh starts, and setting up goals to achieve. Now, the actual achievement of those goals is a whole different thing…but never mind that now. It’s definitely a cliche for bloggers to post their new year’s resolutions, but who cares? This is my blog and I want to have my resolutions on the internet for all to see (or […]
