Mindfulness: Appreciating each day for what it is (even if it sucked)

Hello from London! I am currently sitting in Gatwick airport, waiting for time to fly as I occupy myself through a 12 hour layover. Despite leaving Babe after two months of what I can only call pure bliss, I can't honestly say I'm heartbroken to go. I learned a lot about myself, my boyfriend, our… Continue reading Mindfulness: Appreciating each day for what it is (even if it sucked)

Copycat Confession

Do you ever wonder where trends come from, in the time between their nonexistence and when every other person is trying it out for themselves? Occasionally you can catch a glimpse of the start of something that becomes popular- think of elementary school when that first kid in your class came back from a hot… Continue reading Copycat Confession

Tips for the fashionably late

There is nothing I love more than a weekend getaway. This weekend I whisked myself away to one of my girlfriends' cabins about two hours away from home out in the middle of nowhere. We made brownies and peach mojitos, roasted marshmallows over a bonfire, and spent the day basking in the sun on the… Continue reading Tips for the fashionably late

Are you ‘stuck’?

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’?

Things I Learned from Being Loved

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

5 ways to be a hat person

It took me a long time to get into the hat thing. I felt like I looked funny; I started questioning if my head is abnormally large or maybe abnormally small (still not sure) or why I only noticed the size of my head once I put a hat on. I'd see people wearing cute… Continue reading 5 ways to be a hat person

Last Minute Lovebirds

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

The Ugly “C” Word

The word I'm thinking of is 6 letters long. What did you think I meant?! You got it- cardio. I know it's what we were all thinking! Don't get me wrong, I love being active and I do love working out. But no matter how bomb my playlist is, after about 5 minutes into running,… Continue reading The Ugly “C” Word

Tales of a Hockey Wife (pt. 2)

I'm snuggled up on my couch live streaming babe's game on my laptop (the laptop I should be doing homework on...), but so happy to finally be able to catch a game. We both put our jobs first, and I'm often working or in school when he has a game. So today I am beyond… Continue reading Tales of a Hockey Wife (pt. 2)

DIY: Flowers Forever

Have I mentioned I'm a bit of a hopeless romantic? Well, if I haven't, the cats out of the bag! I'm a sucker for rom-coms, having doors opened for me and flowers for no reason. My boyfriend knows this and really knows how to melt my sappy, love struck heart. The other day, I received… Continue reading DIY: Flowers Forever
