Finding Hygge in the Chaos of Moving House (+ Creamy Tomato Basil Soup Recipe) October 16, 2017 - I can hear the rain outside and I have a cup of tea.

A couple weeks ago, I wrote about beginning a …
Feeling Posh in Edinburgh September 28, 2017 - I love Edinburgh. If you know me personally, you have heard this a million times. (Sorry, not sorry.) Why do I love it so much?

Nibbling and Sipping Through London’s Soho District  July 26, 2017 - Before I left for my trip in May, I was quizzing my expat colleagues about where the girls and I should eat and drink for our three nights in London.
