This is the last part of my series on Sinéad’s visit and it makes me sad that it’s almost over — I’m glad I have so many pictures to remember it! 😀 Aside from eating at various new vegan places, visiting magical Harry Potter Land, drinking lots of coffee, baking cupcakes and “scooping lefts”, we alsoContinue reading “Sinéad’s Visit to Florida – Part 3 + Jack’s Visit!”

Sinéad’s Visit to Florida – Part 2

This entry has been a long time coming! It’s been 9 months now since my beloved Sinéad visited me, and I still haven’t shared everything from her trip – a travesty on my part, to be perfectly honest. I have been incredibly busy, but that’s no excuse – I have to share the amazing selfies andContinue reading “Sinéad’s Visit to Florida – Part 2”

Hello From the Other Side (Of the Country!)

I have so much to update with, but I want to give each new thing its own post so the many amazing things that have been going on can get the attention they deserve. Before I start a big slew of back logged photo posts however, I did want to at least announce the biggest thingContinue reading “Hello From the Other Side (Of the Country!)”

Recipe: Swirly Nutella Cheesecake Squares

First, I need to let you know that my inaccurate cutting led to these being more rectangular than the title of this recipe would lead you to believe, but we’re going to pretend that isn’t the case – may the odds of even cutting be ever in your favor! Second, I have some seriously talentedContinue reading “Recipe: Swirly Nutella Cheesecake Squares”

Book Review – Divergent by Veronica Roth

Title: Divergent Author: Veronica Roth Publisher: HarperCollins, 2012 Pages: Paperback Edition, 487 pages Rating: 4.5/5 I’ve been on a reading kick lately, and I’ve been revisiting my favorite genre in life – YA Fiction.

I’m Blue! – Color Oops, Prism Lites & Blue Hair Dye Review

I’ve been waiting for months to dye my hair blue because I wanted to make sure it was both strong enough and long enough to handle the bleaching process it’d take.

Recipe: Frozen Microwaveable Breakfast Sandwiches

I love convenience. Like, I really, really love convenience. I’m so busy between going to school, homework, working full time + and maintaining basic things like sleep habits and hygiene that it doesn’t leave very much room for making full breakfasts or keeping up with any sort of “healthy” diet. To keep my options as healthyContinue reading “Recipe: Frozen Microwaveable Breakfast Sandwiches”

Recipe: Rosemary + Citrus Cookies

Finally, the third part of my “I love rosemary” extravaganza!  This is also the second dessert-type recipe I’ve made, and none of them have included any beef or lamb or pork or any meat at all! I’m not saying that it isn’t DELICIOUS on a fat slab of carcass, but what I am saying is thatContinue reading “Recipe: Rosemary + Citrus Cookies”
