Hi hello my lil blossoms! It’s been a while since we just chatted, so here we are.
I moved! Two of my friends and I found a sweet new dig and moved in together, we’re a month in and it’s been the best. I get to live with two amazing people, two sweet doggos, and it’s an all vegan household, which is pretty amazing. It’s been so fun living with friends and just having my own space. Eeep, so happy about it. Maybe I’ll try to share some shots of my room one of these days – I’m working to make it into my own little sanctuary complete with plants, fairy lights, and crystals.
Last month, I travelled to Seattle for a few days to meet up with a friend who was also visiting. We spent most of our time eating and it was a great time. It was a lot of fun to travel with another foodie that loves ice cream possibly even more than I do. We ate at as many restaurants as we physically could. Our favourite was definitely Frankie and Jo’s – it was such a dream that we visited twice & left with a pint on our last night.
A few other highlights of the lil trip was getting to see sweet Christie! She met up with us at a Halloween ice cream social at The Cookie Counter and then we made our way to an incredible drag show! It filled me up with so much joy and even more love and appreciation for the art of drag. Also Melanie and I went to the Courtney Barnett & Kurt Vile show, which was so so so goooood
Halloween! I’m still in the Halloween spirit. Forever and always. For the first time in forever, I actually knew what I wanted to be for a couple months beforehand so I had time to practice and prepare. Up until Halloween weekend I had no idea if I’d even have plans or a reason to dress up, but I was prepared to get in costume even just for hanging out. But I ended up getting dressed up two nights, which was so much fun for me. My costume was Trixie Mattel and I had the best time getting in drag. One night I went for classic Trixie in all her Barbie glory. The next night to go to a haunted house I was a spookier Trixie.
Soooo I know it’s been a while since I’ve blogged especially about food. Between a bout of mental health struggles, moving, and having my external hard drive quit working – I just haven’t had a chance to catch up on my recipes. I have a couple that are ready to share, but I need my hard drive so I can edit the photos… It’s been a work in progress, but fingers cross that the new cord I ordered fixes my problem!!
Update: the cord saved my hard drive’s life.
What series have you been into??
Ayleen and I recently watch AHS Cult and we loved it so much that we started re watching AHS from season 1. It’s such a weird show, but I’m so into it.
I’ve been stoked on the new season of Shameless. The Trixie & Katya Show started and I’m in love. I wasn’t super into the first episode, but it’s growing on me and is never not hilarious.
Does anyone else find that season 2 of This Is Us is like painstakingly boring?!? I’ve still been watching it, but kind of hate it.
Also – Bojack Horseman. It’s basically everything to me right now. It took me a while to get into, but I am hooked. It’s so funny and so smart. It’s fantastic.
If you follow me on Insta, you may or may not have noticed that I’ve been super quiet over there recently. I just haven’t been feeling all that inspired to share in that space. It’s dark when I eat breakfast and after work when I eat dinner, which doesn’t give me much foodie photo time. Plus I’ve been reflecting on how I want to use my corner of space. There is so so so much more I want to share about than just food and I’m struggling to find a way to bring those topics in.
In the past three weeks I’ve gotten 2 tattoos and I’m so happy about it. I love having art on my body and it’s so exciting to have new additions. I love them so much.
How are you feeling about the new year that’s quickly approaching??
I’m feeling excited about it. I know you can make a change or set intentions whenever, but it feels extra refreshing to just start a new year. Plus this new year is also a new moon!! Double perfect time for new intentions. Ever since falling in love with the Desire Map, I really connect with the idea of having words for the year or “core desired feelings”. For 2017, mine were connected, flow, mindful, and creative and I feel like they’re going to be pretty similar for 2018.
I hope you’re all well!! Please tell me about your life going ons. How’re you doing? What’s something exciting in your life right now?
