Does your brand have personality?

Recently Suger Social took over the social media and digital marketing for a brand I have known and loved for a hundred million years. In the time prior to the takeover, IMO the spunk and personality and had gone. The guts of who they were. They'd become generic....

Antipasto Goat’s Cheese Tart

This antipasto goat's cheese tart was originally going to be something entirely different. A roasted vegetable salad or something, maybe. All I knew was that I had some beautiful tomatoes and I wanted to roast them. I hadn't planned to make a tart, but here we are....

Well, none of this has gone to plan.

Look at that. It's Tuesday already and I've spent the last few nights {and one day} trying to edit a video with no success. Less than no success. I was probably 80% complete when the program insisted on crashing constantly and ended up corrupting the file. Excellent....

My Summer Bucket List

I'm a goals kind of girl. It's truer than true. I also go through phases were my goals change regularly. But something I've never had was a bucket list. Thinking of my time off over Christmas/New Year and what I wanted to do I figured now was as good as time as any to...

Wedged

There's some conversation online about this style of dress. With its over-sized shape and modest, for lack of a better word, lines it has been labelled an unflattering sack. Gosh. Because people on the internet just can't hold it in, right? But once again, the people...

You can’t #hashtagplusblogger

I added this prompt to the Hashtag Plus Blogger challenge myself. I'd been watching some YouTube {yeah, I know, same old same old} and came across a movie by Casey Neistat titled 'Do What You Can't'. Watch it if you haven't seen it and have no idea what I'm on about....

Easy casual outfit, as usual.
