Home is Where the Heart is – The Côte d’Azur

They say there’s no place like home and it’s true. But what happens if you’re so nomadic that you don’t have a home? No set place to call your own. It’s a strange feeling, but home is in fact where your heart is. And I have to say, my heart is scattered in fragments across…

Wise Words that Stuck Like Glue

Even in what I wrote yesterday, I attested to the fact that I really should practice what I preach, but the reality is that it’s not always that straightforward. A while back, I wrote about my morning ritual and how great it is to have a mini routine to set me up for the day,…

Making Changes that are Scary

It’s so easy to fall into a rut in life and just continue along a path that we’ve started walking down simply due to the ease of the steps. The familiarity drives us to keep on walking and the comfort of knowing everything that’s there is second to none. It’s the simplicity of carrying on…

Adventures Ahead

As fast as the world is spinning is as fast as I’ve been moving lately. There has been so much going on that every time I grab a few minutes to myself is to mindlessly sit, lay or stand staring at my phone aimlessly. I’ve been low on energy for anything other than what’s been…

Instagram for Inspiration

Social media is a funny thing. It has a bad rap recently with different groups of people for different reasons. The biggest factors being that of body image or comparing our lives to those of others. At least that’s what it seems to me by the people I choose to follow and the things I…

You Glow Differently When You’re Actually Happy

We’ve all heard people saying this, but maybe you’re like me and have rolled your eyes in some way at this bold statement. But let me tell you something. I think I just proved that these utterings are actually true. I’m not a morning person. Let’s just get that straight from the outset. I don’t…

Morning Rituals

Isn’t it so beautiful that every time we wake up, we are faced with a brand new day? A new opportunity and a new page in our book to write whatever we please. Sometimes we take that very blessing for granted. We often just get up and continue our lives like clockwork and roll with…

My Favourite Dairy Free Alternatives for Savoury Dishes

As I’ve said before, I am not “vegan” and I don’t pretend to be. I am, however, lactose and gluten intolerant which stemmed my love for getting creative with food in the first place and have since grown a love for all things plant-based. I’m not the biggest advocate for replacing cheese with “cheeze” as…

Amalfi

We’ve all heard about it. We’ve seen photos and we’ve got an idea of what this coastline is all about, but in reality, we have no idea until we actually visit. It was one of the first places I heard about when I met my husband. He told me all about his job, his life…

Thoughts for Tuesday

Before I get started with this little ramble from my brain, I’m just going to first say that if you’re expecting a pretty coloured salad or some food inspiration, this isn’t the right post. Scroll down and check out my last two posts for that. This, is a little bit of raw reality from the…
