March Faves

March, oh March. It was mad real! Certainly one of my favourite months of the year because it's my love, David's birthday...but it was also such an uphill climb. I love the idea of monthly blog reflection: Candids from the last month; from people to experiences to pictures to items. Favourites only, because good vibes… Continue reading March Faves

I love the idea of monthly blog reflection: Candids from the last month; from people to experiences to pictures to items. Favorites only, because good vibes are all the hype and should be celebrated. It's a new year: I love new beginnings...especially when they come packaged as a different last digit to the date for the… Continue reading January Faves

Bao Box

There's been so much hype around Bao Box; the girls and I had to have our last catch up sesh there. First things first, I'm the realest. I'm joking, I totally got that from a song. I like the location-Pramukh Towers on Westlands road, right by the Standard Chartered Bank HQ. It's central. Central is… Continue reading Bao Box

A Reminder: When it gets difficult

It's raining. I love the rain. Out here in these smart streets, they call me a pluviophile. I am a pluviophile. A pluviophile whose life is dealing a crash course on a number of lessons. I'm ultimately really grateful. Things could be worse. That, and there is hope tied to the process of sharpening. It's… Continue reading A Reminder: When it gets difficult

Don’t Quit Your Day Dream

My feet may not be the prettiest in the world, but they are certainly cute enough to make it to the blog, no? It's also important, for variety's sake, to give y'all time to miss my face. Lastly, I am here for the aesthetics and subsequent symbolism. First thought when you muse over your feet,… Continue reading Don’t Quit Your Day Dream

See You Soon, Cardiff

It wasn't all love. It hasn't always been love. In fact, the first night I spent here I cried. I wanted to go home. Completely unaware that four life sculpting years later, I would be calling you, home. I cried, but you cradled my tears. You taught me that pain, wrong choices, mistakes-they do not… Continue reading See You Soon, Cardiff

Five Words To Live By

Lately, I have been all up in my thoughts  about what moves me. How do I want to live? What do I want to be led by? On what do I rest in, when the motions of the world exhaust me? Where do I run to when my soul is in desperate need of a… Continue reading Five Words To Live By
