Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Last week we went to see Captain America: The Winter Soldier. It was an awesome movie! I was so excited to see this movie and it didn't disappoint. I'm a big Marvel fan and Captain America has proved to be one of my favourite superheroes from the Avengers. Chris Evans does an amazing job and I've thoroughly enjoyed both Captain America movies. 

One of my favourite things about Captain America: The Winter Soldier was Black Widow. I've talked about Black Widow before after seeing The Avengers. I've only ever encountered Black Widow in the odd comic, since I read mainly X-Men comics. And I've never been a huge Scarlett Johansson fan but she does a pretty fantastic job playing Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow. I honestly didn't realize how large of a role she would have in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. 

As a female who reads a lot of comics, watches a ton of superhero movies and television shows, it's so refreshing to see a real woman playing a kickass female role and not having to degrade herself. Sure, depending on the artist, Black Widow can show off a decent amount of cleavage. But this wasn't the case in the movie version of Black Widow. In all the movies she's appeared in now, she comes off as strong, powerful AND sexy. 

Who knows what will happen, but I really think they should make a stand alone Black Widow movie. She's tough and doesn't rely on the men to save her. And she's not wearing some skimpy outfit that barely covers her arse or has her breasts falling out of her suit. I respect her and cheer for her. My inner child wants to be her. Ok, maybe even adult-me wants to be her too. 

This movie made me even more excited for the next Avengers movie. I really can't wait to see everyone together again. 

Have you see Captain America: The Winter Soldier yet?

My Favourite Baby Must-Haves

Having my first child has been eye-opening. I've learnt so much and made so many mistakes. It becomes a guessing game of what your child needs at times. You want to be 'perfect' but the reality is we're all just winging it and doing the best we can. Sometimes that means spending hours on Google, texting every 'mom' friend you have, or on hold with poison control because your baby licked eczema cream off your finger when you were putting it on her cheeks (or trying to).

With Christmas around the corner, I thought I'd share the top baby items that have saved us over and over again. They would be perfect gift ideas for new parents-to-be or stocking stuffers for infants.

1. Swaddle blankets - even if your child doesn't like to be swaddled these blankets are amazing. They're extra large and made from a breathable cotton. They were perfect for the spring and summer to bring with us on walks. If there was a cool breeze, too much sun, or Emma was upset, hav…

New Mom Must-Haves

It's been just over 9 months since Emma entered this world. It's been crazy. So many ups and downs. But I wouldn't trade this experience in for anything. She's amazing. It's definitely a learning experience and I wouldn't have gotten through the last 9 months without the support I've had. My family and friends have been welcome resources to help me in this new chapter of my life.

Emma has been a great baby - she sleeps well, she eats well, she's overall content and happy. We haven't experienced many problems. But that doesn't mean every day has been easy. Some days I don't get the chance to shower between Emma, chores, and just trying to eat; other days, naps are on schedule, feedings run smooth, and I have the opportunity to not only shower, but write up a blog post or bake cookies.

Since it's the time of year when people are out buying gifts, I thought I'd share the top must-haves I've needed over the last 9 months. They would …

New Beginning

It's a new year which always feels like a new beginning to me; a fresh start. I've never been one to hold myself all that accountable for new year resolutions. I wrote down a few goals I'd like to work on this year, but honestly, the only things that matter to me this year are making memories and doing what makes me happy.

We have some fun plans this year, some set in stone and others that we need to finalize. Emma will be walking this year and she's already proved 2019 to be interesting since she's now crawling and trying to stand up. I can only imagine how many new adventures we'll encounter this year with her.

I've also found new inspiration in my creative life - artists, creators, crafts, fabric. So many things have sparked new motivation in me. I haven't felt that in a while to be honest. It's nice. It's nice to feel these things again which make me want to spend time in my craft room or sit at my laptop and write .

My first step in my newf…
