Look what happened now...
Ready, Set, Jet!
As an after Christmas gift to myself I took advantage of Pacificas end of the year sale and stocked up on some favs plus some new skincare items.
I was going to wait till I tried all the new goodies for at least a month and then report back, but the way life is going that really means I would never get this post out.
I just restocked the hair masks, underarm wipes and the Dreamy Youth day/night. They are all tried and true products I use all the time.
If you are looking for a really good, ethical vegan brand for your skincare and beauty needs I can't recommend Pacifica enough.
Catch you later~
Hello and Welcome to 2021~ I hope you are having a rocking time.
Okay, before we get too deep into this staycation post let me be honest on two points:
Plus we have to wait until the pandemic is over to do much of anything, because it is still raging in the US. So we tried to make the most of life by cooking, (and eating) new dishes, saving for that BIG trip, and getting clear on where we want to live next.
So many possibilities!
I'm also working on a December food diary post - And before you ask, yes I will include the recipes. I made everything from Vegan Ch'kin and Dumplings to Apple Pie last month.
I also managed to meet my 2020 reading challenge over at Goodreads.
Which will end up being its own post too. If you are on GoodReads as well please friend me and lets compare notes on books, k?
So overall my December Staycation ended up being a busy time! I can't wait to see how this year goes.
Catch you later~
It's December! How did that happen?
This has been on CRAZY year and it looks like it's going out with a bang!
Work is keeping me very busy, thankfully. Meanwhile, life back in quarantine continues to be challenging. I'm baking and dreaming of a proper holiday when this is all over.
In the meantime we have the mountains to keep us company.
Good Morning Travel Fam!
How are things?
I'm making plans & getting things done on the beautiful Saturday morning!
I don’t know about you, but I love to plan and prepare—as we wrap up 2020, I can’t help but start thinking and preparing for all the things 2021 will bring!
Cheers to another amazing year!
October was another strange month of limited travel (thank you Covid-19) and random, half hearted events. I think most people are really feeling the strain of the pandemic. Now just about everyone I speak with has either lost someone or knows of person who was very ill.
Halloween was all but canceled this year. Trick or treating was frowned on and parties were illegal, well depending on where you lived. This was the first year we didn't hand out candy, dress up or do anything.
I've actually been reading every night and have about 30 books I need to write up.
In October I did manage to review a trilogy of quick, reads by Erin Kellison. (Read about it here)
I had plans to write up all my September adventures, but just didn't have the time. So I put all the pictures in a quick video. It's less than 4:00 minutes, but it covers the kooky and upbeat vibe of Roswell. Watch it here:
I spent most of the month working to make up for taking September off. I did find time to bake and write a bit. And to makes things more bizarre right before Halloween we had a freak blizzard!
See you with more book reviews and updates soon!
The weather here is turning off cold and we have a good chance of snow Sunday. I'm going to head to the trails and take advantage of the sun before the storm blows in, but wanted to get this book review to you first.
It's been busy this month, and I wanted to just turn off my brain for a while. You know? Not read for work or anything too heavy, just clean my palette, with an easy story. (And who doesn't want a bit of fantasy to get lost in right now?)
So after some diligent searching I decided to start a new book about Dragon Shifters. It was so good that I read all three in the series!
The first book: Tempted by Fire
Tempted by Fire is a quick and fun dragon shifter story. Honestly I wasn't expecting much, but I was pleasantly surprised! I enjoyed the story, the characters and the world building. The authors writing style is pleasant and very easy to read, making this a very relaxing weekend escape
Let's face it, there is nothing new on Netflix anyway, why not read?
Author Erin Kellison is a New York Times best seller and I can see why. She didn't have me setting on the sidelines being told a story, she immersed me in the storyline. The plots move pretty fast (no one likes a book that drags) but there is enough action to keep you reading.
The books could be read alone or as a trilogy.
The review is based on all three books:
Quick Book Review - Weekend Edition:
Dragons of Bloodfire
More reviews out soon~
