Things I’m loving right now

Yep I’ve been a bad girl lately, buying things (without peer pressure) and sampling things that I end up falling in love with. Some things are more tangible than others and some aren’t that healthy for me either, but sh*t happens. Let’s take a look at some stuff I’m loving this fall, non-weather wise. Truffle honey butter – Was served this […]

Advice from men to women

I read advice to women about men with a healthy bit of skepticism. Not in a man-hating sense, but I find the advice often humorous, and a tad off base. Or it is so general that I cannot imagine women actually behaving in that way. So when I saw RT’s of Peter’s post titled 20 pieces of advice for women […]

Balancing the life trifecta

While catching up with Nic last week, I explained my crazy concept of the “life trifecta” and how mine is slowly getting back in balance. The life trifecta are the three things that keep you sane and stable in your life. Mine are: Work, friends/family and apartment These are the things that keep me grounded, balanced and feeling like I’m […]

When the last friendship strand snaps

In the last week, I’ve done a lot of thinking. About friendships, and one in particular. In friendships, I tend to give, and give a lot. Sometimes, I get burned and when I do, I pick myself up, dust myself off and keep trying. I don’t want to give up on the people closest to me, even if they disappoint […]

Change is inevitable

When I first started blogging, I could not wait to post. I had so many ideas of things I wanted to write about, share, say, etc. in my head that I could not type fast enough. I was even blogging five days a week when I started. That’s how excited I was to share everything in my head. But as […]

Paris adventure

I’m back! In the last two weeks, I’ve flown 10,000 miles, been on two continents and in three different time zones. To say it’s been exhausting is an understatement. And my body finally caught up with me this week, leaving me sick in bed for the last 48 hours. But today I finally had a chance to transfer and upload […]

On the road again

After my Seattle/Vancouver trip in August, I took a travel break. I wanted to spend time in Chicago, see my friends and try dating. Two of these things happened with good results. But after a seven month break and a few work-related trips, I’m hitting the road again, solo-travel style. And rather than take a trip in the states to […]

The next frontier: Getting a cleaning woman

I am not a very neat or clean person. I like when my house is picked up and freshly cleaned but I will say that my deep clean skills are severely lacking. Sure, I scrub the tub and sink but the floors, vents and blinds? I’m lucky if I get to that once a season. If at all. It’s sad. […]

Trying to cut the caffeine addiction

I have several vices: red wine, coffee, the very occasional cigarette and…soda. I love soda, especially non-diet, non-zero-calorie soda. On a hot day, I love a nice ice-cold beer, but sometimes, all I want is a sip of ice cold soda. The feeling of sugar hitting your veins is the best. It sounds like a drug, and sometimes, it feels […]
