It's official. I'm blogging. Again.

The last time I kept a blog was nearly three summers ago. This is also the same time I decided to like cupcakes--no, like really like cupcakes--and wanted to (maybe) pursue a cupcake business.

And so it goes: out of sheer boredom I bake some cupcakes, take them to work the next day, get rave reviews, and then one thing just leads to the next... That summer, I challenged myself to bake at least one new flavour of cupcakes every week--of course, blogging about it along the way. This challenge led into the fall, the winter, and now, when friends think of cupcakes, they think of me (or so I like to believe).


Now, as I sit down to re-realize my blogging skills (or lack thereof), my intentions are different. Whereas my former blog was born out of lazy summer days and a need for something to do, this blog is my way of staying sane (as if I needed more things to do) throughout the rest of my masters degree--and maybe thereafter.

I'm two-fifths of the way to completing my masters degree (sounds like nothing). And while I'm enjoying the program--the courses, the professors, yada yada--my poor brain needs a rest every now and then (so I look at pretty things on the internet--Pinterest, anyone?).

Aside from being a full-time student in the city of Toronto, I am an actor and fitness buff (or at least pretend to be). I share an apartment midtown with my amazing boyfriend, R, and our glutton of a kitty, Zoey (Lucky, Boo, Nu Nu...she's had like seven names). I love interior design, spending time in my kitchen, eating what I've made in my kitchen, and I take delight in trying to be fashionable.

As you'll notice on the right, there is a list of some of my favourite blogs/websites, all of which--along with my own everyday musings--have inspired this blog. Expect to see everything from healthy recipes and fitness and nutrition advice to DIY projects for the home, fashion recommendations, and anything else that happens to be putting a smile on my face. This site is a place for me to share with you the haps and mishaps of my life: the tender, the loving, the brutal, and the boring.

Please bear with me as I get this little baby up and running!

Oh, and as for the cupcake business? Due to graduate studies, it's (sort of) been put on hold until further notice. Yeah, I know, tell me about it.
