Leaving Time by Jodi Picoult

Jodi Picoult is one of those authors you either love or you hate and it really depends on personal preference. I, however, adore her books and devour them in usually just a few sittings.

Watches: Bargain Buys

When it comes to shopping I love it, but I also am a big fan of saving money. I’m not a penny pincher but there’s nothing I love more than a good deal. Because of this one of my favorite places to go when I need something (or don’t) is an op shop (or a charity shop […]

Thai Meatballs in Peanut Sauce

Photo credit: Jo Cooks The past few days have been pretty pathetic on my end with cooking. It’s not been fantastic weather it’s just been the kind of days where all you want is to curl up with a warm drink and watch Netflix all day long. Monday night I ordered Chinese food because I […]

Jeans for Petite Women

I’m really short, and although I tell people I’m 5′ I’m not, I’m really 4’10.5 That half inch matters to me, ok? Because of this I’ve always struggled finding jeans that fit me, even in petite sizes. It always seemed like petite was still for someone taller than me (who are these Amazon-like women and where […]
