What I'm Loving Now

Right now my to-read (or to-listen to) pile of books is huge! But I love having a ton of books that I'm super excited to read. Seriously, the library is an amazing place and feeds my book addiction. 

You're Never Weird On The Internet (Almost)

I have a huge list of books to get to but You're Never Weird On The Internet (Almost) by Felicia Day jumped to the top of my pile. I was excited to listen to this audio book since Felicia Day narrates it herself and everything I knew about her I liked so I figured this book would be good. Oh boy, was it ever! As someone who wants to make a living off a creative, entrepreneurial/independent job, this book was incredibly inspiring and real. Also, being apart of the geek industry, fighting depression, and learning to take care of yourself all hit home with me. I really enjoyed this book and plan on picking up the actual physical book (not just the audio book) to have on hand whenever I need a motivational push. 


Doctor Who

I took quite the break from watching Doctor Who but with the next season just starting, I felt the urge to start it up again. I caught up on the specials between season 4 and 5 and have now watched a few episodes of season 5. Well, so far I'm loving Matt Smith as the Doctor. I honestly didn't know how I'd feel but him and Karen Gillan are so good on the show. 


What are you loving right now?

  2. I cannot wait to check out the Felicia Day book. I just realized I have unused Audible credits, so I know what I'm getting. And yay for Doctor Who! We still need to finish Season 8, but luckily it's on Netflix so we can take our time.

  3. I need to get back into Doctor Who now as well! They finally have Capaldi's first season up on Netflix, so I need to finish up Season 7 and start in on 8.

  4. I need to catch up with Doctor Who too. I was so stoked to see Peter Capaldi's interpretation, but lost excitement around episode 4 and haven't checked it out since. Felicia Day's book is also on my to read list.

  5. Enjoyed the Felicia Day book too! Amy and Rory are my #2 fav companions after Donna. I have to catch up on Capaldi's season! Just wasn't into the first few eps I saw.

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…
