Try This: 90’s Style Murder Mystery Cocktail Soiree

I haven't been home much these past couple of days, so my posting on time has really been sucking. My creative project for yesterday was a bit different and less tangible than usual - really, it was an experience rather than an object. My friend Charlotte called me up yesterday morning with a hilariously intriguing … Continue reading Try This: 90’s Style Murder Mystery Cocktail Soiree

Day 16: Homemade Peach Iced Tea

Today involved a lot of sleeping and recovering. Even more exciting though, it involved more nature documentary viewing and making iced tea with my awesome partner in crime, emma! My day 16 is nothin' too fancy due to the first two actions listed, but it was definitely satisfying. We didn't have time to steep the … Continue reading Day 16: Homemade Peach Iced Tea

Food For Your Belly, Food For Your Skin

Yesterday was such a beautiful day (until I got too much sun + not nearly enough water = got really dizzy and sick). I made two trips to the market. The first time I randomly met up with a few lovely friends who I rarely see these days. I wasn't early enough to score any … Continue reading Food For Your Belly, Food For Your Skin

So very fawn-ed of this dress now :)

Livingroom picnics & Fresh Rhubarb Sauce

Okay Day 9! What an awesome day it's been. I treated myself to a massage this morning (achiness to the extreme), had an epsom salt bath, then took a nap. A very┬álovely friend came over, bringing a picnic with her! We were supposed to have it outside, but due to the threatening sky and the … Continue reading Livingroom picnics & Fresh Rhubarb Sauce

Post-Soiree Creativity? Tea Shortbread = Happy Belly

For Day 4, I decided to make some cookies. Our apartment smells a bit like spilled beer, so I figured the sugary buttery goodness in the oven would be an appropriate replacement. I found this recipe via a cool blog called All Things Simple. And how simple and delicious it is! This is how you … Continue reading Post-Soiree Creativity? Tea Shortbread = Happy Belly
