We’re All One Big Family

Hello there everyone!

I have had a very busy few weeks indeed. But they have certainly been wonderful! I wanted to tell you one of the reasons for that today… I have two new family members!

About two months and one month ago, respectively, I welcomed two precious little ones into my home in the form of… GUINEA PIGS!!!!

Bubbles and Archie are the new loves of my life, they are literally the cutest things I have ever owned. I got them out of a pretty frightful pet store situation (18 of them in one tank thing… yikes!) and had to spend a small fortune at the vet’s getting them free of lice and mites. But now they are healthy little piggies and I love them to pieces! The only thing is, they are just babies and they don’t always let me hold them.. at all! Anyone know about this? Comment below if ya do 🙂

There’s only so much you can say about guinea pigs really, so I’ll let these few pictures speak for themselves. Enjoy!

Until next time,
Liv, Bubbles, and Archie ❤

How Ya Doin’?


Yes, it’s me, Liv. Please don’t hurt me, I know it’s been a while.

Do you ever get this grand, fun idea in your head, but then when you try really hard at it, it’s not so fun anymore? When I started this blog, I had this grand notion of sunshine, lollipops and rainbows all the time. But I got so caught up in writing the right thing, or trying to sound a certain way, that this did not become the case. Blogging kind of lost its appeal because it just became so dang hard!

Here’s what I’m thinking. Who says blogging can’t be unicorns and gumdrops? And why should I ever try to be something I’m not? It’s all quite silly, the stress I put on myself. So, from now on I will continue to write, as 100% me. It might get a little weird, and you might not always be particularly enthused by the material, but I’m going to give it a fair shot.

Get ready world, it’s about to get crazy.

Until next time (and by next time I mean at some point in the next 5 hours),
Liv 🙂

First Update // Liv Loses

Hello there!

As I mentioned in a previous post, I have begun the slow and steady journey that is weight loss. Today, I just thought I would give you a bit of an update!

To be honest, the last month or so has been completely horrible when it came to my quest. Since I am living back home for the moment, I’ve filled up my schedule with activities I couldn’t do when away at school. This has been great, but since taking a second job it has been entirely too much. Due to being absolutely exhausted all of the time, I have been constantly sick in some form for at least three weeks now! What a drag. Time management has never been one of my strong suits, and it’s beginning to catch up with me for sure.

So, let’s start again, shall we? I’m still not all the way back up to my starting weight, so let’s get cracking. This is a rather boring update, but I did say I’d be keeping myself accountable on here!

Until the next (hopefully better) time,
Liv xx

I Am Alive

Hello? Anyone out there? Anyone?

Yes, hello, it is I. Liv. I didn’t get buried under a snowdrift, or run over by a herd of horses. However, I have been EXTREMELY busy finishing all of those brutal end-of-semester assignments. I apologize for not keeping up with my posts, but sometimes you have to prioritize a bit, ya know? Tomorrow or Monday I’ll be getting started with my Christmas baking, so I’ll be posting both my favourite holiday recipe, as well as some shots of my first attempt at making macarons. It’s sure to be a real treat! Shhh see what I did there. So, I’m now going to retreat to my blanket fort, finish my last paper, and then rejoice because my Christmas season will officially have begun! 
Until tomorrow,
Liv xx
