November State of the Union

We're nearly half-way through November now and it's been a great month so far. It feels really nice to be busy, as much as it is a bit overwhelming sometimes. It's also so far, been a cozy month, maybe it's because I was sick, but I've spent a decent amount of time cuddled up on … Continue reading November State of the Union

October Empties

This was a month of a slight pivot back to lower waste hygiene products. Which felt good to be back to my normal routine. Also, in September I actually made use of the fact that I've been holding on to my empty containers for the whole year and used some of the smaller ones to … Continue reading October Empties

What I Read in October

In October, I did the seemingly impossible, I read two non-fiction books. Which is (and was) nearly impossible. I was lucky that Bourdain is so readable and fun because Miss Dior was a tome. It took nearly 7 weeks of lunch hour reading to finish it. Miss Dior by Justine Picardie This was a very … Continue reading What I Read in October

October in Review

I was so surprised when I was going through my camera roll for this at how many hiking/outdoorsy pics there were. This is my most outdoorsy month ever in my life. It was really nice though, we had pretty great weather for October in Northwestern Ontario. We don't have any snow and I am extremely … Continue reading October in Review

What I’m Buying in October

The one thing about writing these posts basically mid-month is that I've already bought nearly everything on this list and now I need to stop shopping, especially since I accidentally ordered the wrong item because I'm an idiot who doesn't pay attention and only noticed after it shipped and now I can't change it. Anyways: … Continue reading What I’m Buying in October

Financial Fitness Check-In: September 2022

I need to preface September 2022's check-in by saying that this was the first time I have taken a proper vacation since pre-pandemic, maybe even since 2018, and that I had been saving for months for it. It's also the first vacation I've ever taken with like real adult money. So saying I spent moneyyy … Continue reading Financial Fitness Check-In: September 2022

September Empties

If I have noticed anything writing these posts it's that I follow a cycle, extreme waste reduction to hyperconsumption to feeling guilty about spending so much on beauty products and consuming so much plastic packaging, to not buying anything and then it starts again. And I am definitely in a not buying anything phase, even … Continue reading September Empties

October State of the Union

This post idea literally just occurred to me. I was thinking about how I DNFed (did not finish) the only book I attempted to read in the month. I think in the future I will combine all of monthly recap style posts, the monthly empties, the what I reads in..., the financial fitness check ins, … Continue reading October State of the Union

September in Review

September was a fantastic month, an absolutely insanely busy month but it was so fun and fulfilling and I really needed it. Also today is Truth and Reconciliation Day, if you live on settled land please take the time today to think about the loss and suffering that Indigenous Peoples endured for colonization to occur … Continue reading September in Review

Financial Fitness Check-in: August 2022

This was a bit of a weird month, it felt like I didn't do anything, go anywhere, or buy anything, but I somehow spent a ton of money?? Some of it is for future stuff, like travel tickets for while I'm home, but most of it is bills and food. This was also one of … Continue reading Financial Fitness Check-in: August 2022
