A hot and sunny, beautiful long weekend has just passed me by and I'm sitting here in sweatpants and Babe's sweater, like I have been since he left on Saturday, with the exception of two overnight shifts on an acute psychiatry unit and a quick dinner with my childhood best friends. Working nights has never… Continue reading Life in LDR
Well, my least favorite time of the year is here yet again, and it's come faster than ever it feels like! It's time to say goodbye to Babe as he gets back to work, this year in France. Whenever Babe is home, I find it so hard to balance our time together, because my heart… Continue reading Are you ‘stuck’?
I think it's fair to say that the majority of us have had the experience of being in a bad relationship or being the one who "cares too much", whether while dating a person or simply just being in a position where you like someone and they don't like you back, especially in the casual… Continue reading Things I Learned from Being Loved
My grandpa has the most perfect hands. They're soft, despite the hard work he has done throughout his entire lifetime. I like to think the weathered wrinkles in his fingertips each count for another story that has made up his incredible life. He has nicely shaped, clean fingernails that I like to trace with the… Continue reading 78.
I'm currently sick at home binge-watching Girl Boss on Netflix, a loose (real loose) account of the life of Sophia Amoruso, the gal who created Nasty Gal. The show has me feeling both awkward and inspired by Sophia's carefree/careless attitude toward getting what she wants. Although the episode I'm currently on involves an argument with… Continue reading Girl Boss

I wanted an outlet to share my adventures, ideas and experiences outside of my personal social media outlets, as too often I hear the judgmental sounds of girls criticizing other girls for… Continue reading Good girl revival
Well boys and girls, there's less than 24 hours until the cheesiest holiday of the year. My last post was a few ideas for people looking to skip the classic V Day dinner routine and do something that warms the ❤️, and it caused me and my babe to discuss how excited we are to… Continue reading Last Minute Lovebirds pt. 2 (With Cheese)
As kids, Valentine's Day was always the best day of the year, because it meant free chocolate at school. It also meant you had a chance to tell your crush you liked them (which is something I never did, I was the msn-only kind of girlfriend #goodgirlsclub).... But as we get older, people start to… Continue reading Last Minute Lovebirds
As a kid, I was never forced to eat the dreadful Brussel sprouts that were a common joke in sitcoms. At 23 years old, I tried them for the first time and to tell you the truth- I'm obsessed! My babe puts them in a pan on low-medium heat with olive/coconut oil, fries them then… Continue reading Simple & Savoury
That's why I like it chunky! I used four avocados, mashed to desired consistency Then I added half cucumber, one whole tomato, one third red onion, all diced diced To add flavor, I used cayenne pepper, fresh garlic cloves, pepper, sea salt (ground) Normally, I use cilantro leaves (I used mint as a great alternative… Continue reading I know that guac is extra
