My Sandwich Bread

I started making my own sandwich bread in the beginning of the pandemic lockdown. We didn’t outsource anything unless absolutely necessary for a whole year, and a lot of really great things came out of that time. I developed recipes that are now family favorites… we became much more environmentally conscious as a whole… and are all around a closer and wiser team after going through everything that we did together.

Plus, being out of bread is a horror movie plotline in my world.

Use The Broken

When something breaks 

you can decide to look at the pieces 

scattered and shattered
jagged and jarring

the pieces of a previous something
a something that no longer resembles what once was 

And you can throw them away


Or 

You can pick up those broken pieces
carefully and with loving hands

choose the perfect glue

a glue made of the resilience formed after the breaking  
to piece them back together

and see it as a now stronger something that
You built on your own

opposing the other thing that

someone else built For You 

that was weak enough to fall apart in the first place


You then have become your own keeper
your own maker

your own Whole and Complete thing


The broken pieces were not the proof of a broken existence

The broken pieces became the parts that were used to build a stronger model



(sometimes i speak words into my phone on long walks and decide to share)

Everyday Makeup

There will always be makeup trends. A lot of them are really fun to play with and some, you just sit back and wait until it passes. But the good stuff stands the test of time, and it really isn’t all that complicated to achieve.

Makeup that evens out your skin-tone, gives you a sun-kissed dewy glow, highlights your features AND makes you still feel comfortable in your own skin will always be on trend.

And everyone needs a little sparkle in their day ✨🌟💫

chicken and Orzo Bake

Nobody doesn’t like a one pan dinner, right? The grammar police maybe didn’t like that sentence, but I still stand behind the sentiment. Whether it’s a one-pot stew, soup or braise to be cooked on the stove, a one sheet tray roast… any time you can put all your dinner into one dish, bake it in that dish, and not have to pre-cook any of it beforehand?!?

Winner, winner (you know the rest).

diy 3in1 facial scrub (+ more skincare tips!)

When I’m posting a video, I don’t like to write too much because it feels gross and like I’m expecting you to want to read my words, listen to my words, and look at my face all in a matter of minutes. That’s just not fair to you.

You’re welcome.

Questions, comments, concerns… lemme know.

B-SIDES PODCAST SPECIAL DELIVERY

I get it. Traveling from one digital platform to another can be… trying. You’re on instagram and someone tells you to click a link to take you somewhere else and you’re just like, whhhyyyy? I like it HERE. I’m comfortable HERE. I get it. And it can be confusing. Maybe you get lost in the transition.

I get it.

SO. If you’ve heard about my new podcast and were just too comfortable where you were when you heard about it, I have a present for you.

< drum roll >

Here are the episodes (thus far) of the B-Sides Podcast all conveniently delivered to your lap. Now, this maaay be the only time I frontdoor deliver, so be sure to follow and subscribe now! You can follow on Spotify if that’s your jam, subscribe on Apple Podcasts if you lean that way, or just head over to the Anchor site itself and take it from there.

Subscribing and following ensures you won’t miss anything, so that’s your best bet. Go do that now while you’re still feeling loved by my special delivery.

And you should absolutely 100% follow B-Sides on Instagram. It’s a completely different experience you don’t wanna miss out on.

But for now… since it’s Tuesday and cool things rarely happen on a Tuesday… Here are the episodes (thus far 😉 ) all neatly placed before you in chronological order.
