TV – Watching Right Now
Jun
2nd

There’s something no one tells you about having a baby. It is literally the best way to sit and binge-watch TV shows. THE BEST. I mean, it’s exhausting and you’re so tired some (most) days you can barely function, but in those early months when the baby just needs to be fed and cuddled endlessly all day long and all night long, you can sit on the couch, turn on Netflix, and watch episode after episode of a show while the baby feeds, or while it refuses to sleep anywhere but snuggled up on your chest. So even though you’re more tired than you’ve ever been in your entire life, you also have all this time to just sit and not do anything. So you might as well catch up on some TV, right?

My bub is six months old (WHAT), but I’m still managing to snag some decent couch time while I feed him and play with him on the floor when my older daughter is at kinder. Over the past couple of months I’ve discovered a few new shows, so I thought I’d pass on some recs to your guys. It’s really a public service announcement to better all of our lives.

I’m on maternity leave this year, so my work wardrobe is enjoying its holiday in my drawers for the next little while.

Here’s a little insight into… Continue reading ->

Hi! It’s been kind of quiet around here this year, hasn’t it? My posts have been sporadic at best, which I’m fully aware of. Not sure how many people still read my blog (going by my stats I would say not a lot, disappointingly), but for anyone still checking in, I wanted to explain my… Continue reading ->

Baking – Jumbo Peanut Butter and Dark Chocolate Chunk Cookies
Oct

I don’t make cookies and cakes with nuts in them because my daughter has a nut allergy. But recently I was overtaken by the urge to make a really nice, soft peanut butter cookie. I do have a peanut cookie recipe in my favourite recipe book, but I wanted something super soft and chocolate-y, which… Continue reading ->

Spring Sandal Edit – Luxe and Less

summer-boots

I recently did a wardrobe clean out and threw away literally every pair of sandals I own. Every single pair. They were all at least three years old or more, some of them had straps that were wearing out or broken (but the sandal itself was still wearable), and a lot of them weren’t really… Continue reading ->
