It’s Not a Hangover, It’s The Super Bowl Flu

at

Ughhhhhh. 

I think that’s the perfect word to describe how I felt this morning post Super Bowl LI.

Actually, no, let’s make it more like.. UUUUGGGGHHHHH. I woke up with a pounding headache and the driest mouth ever, without a water glass anywhere in sight. But I think the worst part of it all was that last night, the Patriots defeated the Falcons. 

I was rooting for the Falcons, just cause it’s easy to cheer for the best team in the league, and my boyfriend doesn’t like Tom Brady or the Patriots. So.. by default..

Valentine’s Day Gift Guide for Him

at

Eeeeeek!

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! 13 days away, to be exact! I’m not big on commercialized holidays, but this year, I’m feeling quite hopelessly romantic. It’s my boyfriend and my first official Valentine’s Day! ? 

We’re not planning on doing anything crazy fancy; I’ll probably make dinner and we’ll watch a movie, or we’ll go out for dinner & a movie. Either way, overpriced heart-shaped chocolate will be going in and around my mouth. 

Heart shaped chocolates and scrabble tiles that spell "love".

How to Make Your Manicure Last Longer

at

Hello, darlings! Hope you all had an amazing weekend! I had to work a few nights this week, and it’s reaaaally throwing off my sleep pattern. I find myself groggily rolling out of a warm, comfy bed around 10 in the morning, cutting into my blogging schedule and making me load up on coffee. Well, I already load up on coffee, but I’ve been drinking more lately because of the weird sleep habits.

Aaaaaaanyway, I’ll stop babbling about my life and get on with what’s really important.

How to make your manicure last longer.

Three Tips for Staying Organized

at

It’s almost the end of January – seriously, where did this month go? – and like most people I’ve decided to take this month to organize my apartment/life/whatever. I feel buried underneath SO much junk that’s floating around my apartment, and I’ve already started decluttering my closet and building a capsule wardrobe, so that’s one item checked off of my “to do” list. 

But there’s still so much more to do, and lately, I’ve been having a hard time staying focused, organized, and on top of things.

30 Minute Faux Pho Recipe

at

Heyyyy friends! Hope you’re all having a lovely week so far, and thanks for dropping by! Toronto’s been dreary and miserable lately, and it’s been a serious downer. I’m trying to stay as productive as I can, but I’ve gotta admit that I’ve been a bit more lazy than I usually am.

Anyway..

Serious question right off the bat: has anyone else been craving soup like a fiend lately?

Holy moly, all I want to eat is soup. I think it’s the gloomy winter and lack of vitamin D. The fact that soup is a great comfort food could also be part of the reason. And who doesn’t love comfort food on a mildly depressing winter day?

Eeeeeexactly!
