Less than a year

Good Morning chickens!! 

Hope you all had a wonderful sleep. I am so so excited to announce that we have reached less than a year till the wedding status! Heyyyooooooh! (we totally reached it a couple of weeks ago but whatev's, July 13th 2016 ALL THE WAY!) 

We are super stoked and hope that the year will go by super quickly! I'm totally wayyy more excited to travel with all my favourite people than the wedding, haha! Not that the wedding isn't important because duh, it totally is! But to me the importance is the fact that all my favourite people on earth will be there to celebrate! 

Since Brent and I live together I already feel like I'm his wife. Seriously, I look at him and think dammnnn thats my hubby. So getting married will truly feel like a celebration of us, along with having all those who we hold dear to us there. 

Our wedding is only a day, it's our marriage that I'm excited about. There will be ups and there will be downs but having Brent by my side every step of the way is exhilarating. There is no one on this planet I would rather go through life with. 

He's my superman dudes and it's pretty great. 



Good morning lovelies! 

It's been a while since I've had a quote of the week but this one seems perfect for my coming back online. Competing with myself has not been something I have ever done but competing with others was easy at is comes... am I right? 

I have decided to take all that unnecessary energy and put it into a competition with myself. It's so easy to lose yourself on instagram, twitter or any other social media. Falling into the rabbit hole of self hate and destruction, where you believe you aren't good enough or your life isn't exciting enough. What you see online is just a smidge of someones life, a lot of people only post the good because in reality no one wants to see the bad. 

So, take a step away from the internet take a good long look at your life and if you see something you don't like change it, push yourself to be the BEST version of yourself. It won't be easy but I promise you, it'll be worth it. 

Have a wonderful tuesday chickens xo 


Portugal x2

In June my sister and I went on a sisters trip. I got to go back to Portugal for the second time this year and it was bliss. I haven't been to Portugal in the summer in seven years, SEVEN whole years. I didn't even remember what I was missing because going back in the summer is SO much better than the winter. The beaches were to die for, the ice cream was necessary and the weather was unreal. Sunshine and a perfect not humid 30 degrees. Heaven in a country, no joke. 

We did a lot of sightseeing and eating. The food in Portugal is seriously delicious. Sidenote: I remember back when Brent and I went on our Eurotrip in 2012, we visited England, Italy, France and Portugal. Once we finally got to Portugal we literally ate SO MUCH FOOD. England, Italy and France all had delicious food too, but it was only ever ONE type of food. 

England - Fish & Chips (AND Nandos) 
Italy - Pizza & Pasta 
France - Chocolate Croissants

But in Portugal it's a variety of delicious food, not just one food group. Everything from the chicken, the beef, the fish to the deserts and drinks are delicious. Portugal offers you a variety of different foods and they're mostly all amazing. 


Our ten days away were much needed and so much fun. I enjoyed spending some real quality time with my sister. I feel as we grow up life gets in the way and you just get so busy so it was nice to have a little getaway with her. I am so fortunate to have such a great little sister, we fight, we make up but were together through thick and thin. I love you pips! 



Hey lovelies. 

Wow. It's been quite some time since I've written here! Welcome back KP! Feels kinda good. I took a bit of a break these last couple of months and I'm feeling a lot better. A lot of exciting things have happened since I've been away1 Brents sister got married, I went to Portugal and my wedding is officially less than a year away! 

Taking this break has left me feeling refreshed and ready to blog again. I think I wasn't giving this blog the love it needed. I was distancing myself away from it because I was disappointed that my blog wasn't looking like I wanted it to so, a break was needed. Now that I'm back, I'm coming back to this as something fun to do. 

Life is just so good and I want to remember every bit of it.
