Over On Luxe Bride

The date today is the 18th of July 2018. An inconsequential date that is just because. But. It is three days from the 21st of July 2018. A year ago to the day that The Husband and I got married in the eyes of God. (And it's likely, knowing me, I won't be able to blog … Continue reading Over On Luxe Bride


Goodbye to the Hotel

I'm moving away from the hospitality circuit, and not through any chagrin of mine, but because I want to do other things with my life. This post is not about the other things nor why i would chose them over continuing to work on hospitality. This post is the opposite and, in fact, in better … Continue reading Goodbye to the Hotel

Part Of The Price Is The Experience

Review of Limecrime’s Plushies

I don’t often review makeup, but Limecrime is a company from whom I’ve had the opportunity to purchase a number of their lippies – and even some eye products too – that I feel sufficiently comfortable chatting about their products here. They were my first introduction to liquid-to-matte lipsticks and, honestly, I’ve never looked back. … Continue reading Review of Limecrime’s Plushies

Review of Hounds of Autumn

They say that the moor has eyes. It is 1890, and the windswept moors hold dark secrets. Chloe Sullivan is an amateur inventor whose holiday takes a dark turn when her friend and colleague, one of the few female mechanical experts in the British Empire, is murdered. A black mechanical hound roams the moors, but … Continue reading Review of Hounds of Autumn
