    Oh My Baking: Great British Bake Off – Week 4

    If you know me, you know dairy can be my worst enemy - so I was not looking forward to having to bake something that had a very high percentage of dairy in it. This week, dairy week, the technical bake was something Henry VIII enjoyed back in his day. Maids of Honour. I guess I should also supply that it was a baked good, not a person, that he enjoyed.

    Wednesday Weigh In: Week 1

    HAPPY HUMP DAY! Last night/this morning marked the end of the first week of my Wednesday Weigh In challenge. Despite thinking that it wasn’t going to go very well, I’d like to think it was a bit of a success. It’s a bit daunting to be revealing my weight on the internet – but I’ve gotten some great positive feedback saying how brave I am, and how courageous I am. I’m holding onto that and pushing any overwhelming feelings to the side and just embracing it. I’m not ashamed of my body. I’m not ashamed of my weight. I’m ashamed that I’m out of shape. Should I be at the weight…

    I've been doing a lot of behind the scenes work that you just can't see. Yet. I'm giving this place a face lift. I know I haven't been around quite that long, but I want this place to feel more homey. I want to really feel like this is a place for me to express myself and that all if you feel like you're welcome and that there is a bit of something for you here too.

    My Beauty Routine – The Basics

    Make-up is not something I wear every day. I think it's because I leave for work at a time that I find early in the morning (usually around 7am I'm out the door), and I'm not awake enough to try and even put make up on. One of my best friends, Alyssa, can start work at 6:45am (not leave the house, but actually start work) and have a beautiful face of make up. Her eyeliner/eyeshadow is ALWAYS on point. I don't think I've seen a day for her where it hasn't been. Apparently she can get up early enough. I, on the other hand, am not a morning person.

    Happy National Nutella Day!

    I love Nutella. I think I've only come across one... maybe two people in my life that don't like Nutella. What isn't to like? It's spreadable chocolate. Chocolate is good. And to spread it on a sandwich is even better. Don't give me that look. I'm not talking a ham sandwich. I'm talking a peanut butter and banana AND NUTELLA sandwich. Have you tried it? You need to. There are two ways to perfect this sandwich.

    One Week Til Superbowl Sunday!

    Working in the hospitality and event industry, I have a knack for party planning. And every year, around Mid-November, I think to myself, "Man, I should really hold a Super Bowl party." Every year. And what don't I do every year? Host a Super Bowl party.
