books that disappointed me

Now when you read as many books as I do you find lots of books that you love and that you can’t tear your eyes away from, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t read books (or parts of books) that I don’t enjoy. This is even worse when it is a book that I…

my summer bucket list

In two weeks summer will be upon us and I must admit I am super excited. I love warm weather, being outside, and the long days that come with summer. I am excited to be back in BC this summer and to be around so much beauty, so many friends, and so many exciting activities…

10 x 10 challenge

I challenged myself to only wear 10 items of clothing for 10 days. You can read more about my choice to do this as well as how I have been trying to minimize wardrobe in this post here. This was a daunting change as I am used to a full closet with tons of choices…

my favourite dessert recipes

Now I don’t mean to brag, but I can make a mean dessert. There is just something so comforting about getting into the kitchen, bringing out my baking supplies and creating something magical. I love when people get excited to try my baking and making people smile when they take a bite. Baking is one…

the best books I read this month – may 2018

Welcome to the end of another month and with it comes another reading wrap up. I must admit, this hasn’t been the best reading month for me as moving and getting used to a new home, life, and starting a brand new job definitely put books on the back burner for a few weeks. I…

things that make me happy – spring 2018

I have found myself very inspired and happy these past few weeks which has been so refreshing and I figured I would share some of these things that are making me happy. This is partly inspired by my friend Olivia over at The Cwtch and her series that is about all the things that make…

an introduction to capsule wardrobes

103. That is the number of clothes that I own, that doesn’t even include workout gear, lounge wear, pajamas, and underwear. (I even counted my 18 pairs of shoes separately from this list). Now I don’t know about you, but that seems like a crazy amount of clothing items, especially since I only have one…

physical vs. chemical sunscreen

Well it seems like warm and sunny weather is finally upon us and with that comes out the sunscreen. I am trying to make sure that I am incorporating sunscreen into my routine every single day. This is complicated a bit by the fact that I have decided to go completely cruelty free and most…

transitioning to a zero waste/low-impact lifestyle

There has been a lot of changes in my life and what I have thought of the world and my place in it in my life the past few months. While I never used to think about the environment more than trying to do some recycling I didn’t think about what I used or used…

impostor syndrome

I recently graduated with my masters, yet a lot of times I feel like a fraud. Like I don’t deserve to be applying to the jobs that I am trying to get. Or making the salary of these jobs. I have constant doubts about my abilities, skills, and knowledge and I feel like I am…
