Do you spend hours looking for something to watch before giving up and going to sleep? Then don’t worry, I got you covered! I’ve scoured Netflix UK for the best binge worthy TV shows available. Don’t feel like reading? Check out my review video over on YouTube! If you’re like most folks at the moment, you’re staying home as much as possible (or you should be at least, if you can). While you could . . .
You Guys!! I have been SO excited to share this post with you, ever since I ordered my first pair of CRZ leggings. I have been searching for a pair of Lululemon Align 25” legging dupes for ages, and I tried out so many different brands from Amazon until I found these little treasures!! Priced at only £16, these Amazon CRZ brand leggings are definitely worth checking out. Don’t feel like reading? . . .
Reading through my last blog post, all I keep thinking is… what a difference a year makes. This time last year, I was adventuring in the Maldives on a much-needed two week vacay. Now, I’m finishing the holiday period getting ready to head back into work in cold and rainy London. The new year period is always a time for reflection: on the past year, lessons learned, experiences had and life in . . .
It's already December 2015. As in, one month away from January 2016. Ever have the feeling that a whole year of your life just flew by, in the blink of an eye? That's definitely what I'm feeling right now. This past year has seen its ups and downs (though, mostly ups) and honestly I don't know where the time went. Logging in this morning I realized that it has been months (yes, months) since . . .
Sometimes life is filled with all sorts of unexpected surprises (sometimes good and sometimes bad) and these past few months have been full of ‘em for me. A few health issues, two surgeries and a full month off of work later, I’m back and finally getting back into the swing of things. Our health is fragile, and life is short, and these past few months have definitely helped me to appreciate that. . . .
This Saturday was my (31st....) birthday, and it was fabutastic. Yes, new word, that's just how awesome it was. I had a few annoyances throughout and somehow managed to actually cry at one point, but all in all, it was one of my best birthdays yet! All of the credit goes to my husband, though, and he really hit a home run this year. Thanks to him, I have a few new London travel tips for you to . . .
You guys...this is the first time in ten years that I'll actually have to work on the 14th of July (without earning holiday pay, at least...!). This is also my first Bastille Day that I'll be celebrating since actually being French! Much like the last time I had the 4th of July off work was ten years ago, I now have two countries whose independance day festivities must be celebrated from my . . .
It's Sunday evening (8:10pm, to be precise) and for the first time in weeks I feel ready to take on the upcoming week energized and not stressed out feeling that I didn't accomplish everything that I wanted to over the weekend. I think there are two types of "weekend people" -- some people use the weekend to relax, and just recuperate from a tiring work week, and some (crazy) people view the . . .
Happy 4th of July, y'all! You guys, I have been so excited about today’s post because I love love (love) American holidays and all that goes with them! Living outside of the States for the past 10 years, Independence day and Thanksgiving have been my two days every year to celebrate all things American. Nationality and identity are complex, but no matter how long I’ve lived abroad, I always . . .
Thank goodness for Jonathan, otherwise I’d probably spend way too much all of my time indoors working on my various projects. When I’m not at work, these past few months I’ve either been in the kitchen cooking up new recipes or researching/working on a new DIY idea that I've been dreaming of all week, but didn't have time for. Basically, I've been a homebody since we moved to London. In Paris, we . . .
