Have a treat, but don’t have a Kit Kat.


“I’ve had a hard day, I deserve a stiff drink tonight!”
“I’m tired, better have a sugar hit.”
“It’s Mars Bar Monday/donut Tuesday/cupcake Wednesday/TIm Tim Thursday/scotch on the rocks Friday!”

Any of these one-liners sound familiar?

Just over a year ago, I wrote about my journey from struggling with my weight to becoming a total fitness fanatic and a total gym cliché – Lorna Jane outfits and all. (If you tried to count the number of times I’ve started sentences with “When I ran my half marathon…” you’d run out of fingers and toes.)

How did I ever get so lucky?

Untitled design (1)

Don’t get me wrong – I know how many incredible people I have in my life, but I don’t think I had ever comprehended that people would come – some a very long way – just to celebrate the fact that I love someone enough to marry them, and they love me right back. It’s sounds kind of strange to put it like that, but that’s exactly what it was. A celebration of love. And it was awesome.

To coffee, or not to coffee.


That is the bloody big question.

This blog. My life. Adulting. Not quite adulting. Not wanting to adult what-so-ever but having to do it anyway. I’m not going to bore you with what you already know here, but today’s post revolves around something 99% of the world have a serious addiction to. That morning brew. Liquid gold. “I can’t function until I have a  cup”. Yep – I’m talking about coffee.

The problems with procrastination.


Ok, let’s have a moment of honesty here. Who am I kidding, this whole blog is filled with shameless honesty (that I should probably sometimes be a little ashamed about…). I’m not so great when it comes to this whole blogging thing. Content quality – yeah I guess that’s alright (going by the feedback all of your rad, rad people give me), but frequency? Shameful.

All my friends are getting married. Oh wait, that’s me! I’m getting married!


So this may come as a surprise to you, but getting engaged was a pretty big item on my bucket list, or as some of my friends will remind me, an important component of my five year plan.

Ok I lie. You all know how desperate I was. I even wrote about it here and received a lot of feedback from people ranging from “I can’t believe you admitted that to everyone on the internet” to “OMG I feel exactly the same way, I’m glad I’m not the only one!”

You can stop talking now: 10 struggles of being an extrovert

Haven’t heard how happy I am today? Well let me tell you all about it…

1. I can’t shut myself up. “Why are you still talking?” is something I ask myself mid-sentence on a pretty regular basis. You can tell the moment you’ve lost someone the second their eyes glaze over and they start going about other activities as though they’re trying to escape what you’re saying. But I just keep talking, and talking…and talking.

We Relay because we can.

Relay For Life hope sunrise

Long time no talk blog. There have been plenty of Short Thoughts happening, but alas, very little time to actually jot them down on the innernetz.

I’m taking it down a notch. I want to keep writing, but I’m not sure I can be so full of advice, insight and LOLs as I started out. So for the meantime, I’m going to share exactly what this blog started out as I guess – my thoughts! And one day I’ll get my shiz together and start spilling out #lifelessons again.
