This book changed my life

I have always found the power of art and literature truly astonishing. I think it’s important to experiment with all forms of art, whether if be music, painting, poetry etc… It’s an escape from the world and a way to truly be honest with ones self.

I have come across many books that have had a significant impact on my life, but none have hit my soul as much as this one.

This book was recommended to me by one of my friends way back in 2009, it took me 2 days to read and I’ve read it 6 times since.

A story about a 15 year old boy who learns the reality about love, loss, sex and drugs in a very innocent way, Charlie, the main character steals your heart from the beginning all the way to the end.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower” by Stephen Chbosky
Is a MUST read.

Most people may know of it because of the recently released movie, and although I did enjoy the movie, there are so many more details and emotions expressed within the book that make it definitely worth the read.

Within the book Charlie makes references to some of the greatest pieces of classic literature, music and poetry. As a reader I found myself researching the songs or poems and it really put you in the same atmosphere as the characters in the book, it made it all that more personal to be able to listen to the same song and feel like you understand exactly what the characters are going through.

I could rave for days about it, but it would be easier for you to experience it first hand.

I highly recommend this book, this was the best decision I ever made.


A new year begins!

Happy new year!!
While 2014 was a bumpy road with many trials and lessons learned, I am beyond looking forward to a wonderful chance to make 2015 a great year.

This will be the year of adventure and risk. No stones left unturned, an while I’m not one to make resolutions this year I am going to focus on making everyday a stepping stone to my goals.

No excuses.

Here’s to another 365 days of adventures.

I wish you all the best in the coming year.

Starting off the celebrations right with the best home made cookies Nonna makes…

Excuse me while I drool.


Vision board

I wanted to share something that I’ve had for years.
I had read a very empowering book and within that novel there was a brief chapter on what they called a ‘Vision board’.

It was a simple concept, you created a collage of all your hopes, dreams and wishes. The premise was that based on the law of attraction, if you thought that it would happen sure enough it would.

An interesting concept I decided to build my own.
I created a massive board about 5 years ago and it’s amazing to see how many things I’ve accomplished or acquired since.

I challenge anyone to create their own vision board and see their progress years in the future, you won’t be disappointed!

Here’s my board, it sits right above my piano :) #neverstopdreaming


Losing someone

Is never easy… And it doesn’t get easier… Last night I lost my little baby snowball. She was my everything.

She was given to me Christmas 2013 and was undoubtably the greatest gift I have ever received.

Although raising a 2month old kitten was difficult because all she wanted to do was destroy everything she taught me so much.

She was always there for me when I felt alone or when I was sad, an she was always there to greet me when I woke up and when I came home.

I can’t even put into words how much losing my baby hurts.
I would give absolutely anything to have her back.

One year with your precious little face an I was in love with you from the very start.

I hope you rest in peace Snowball,
I will always love you




Good company

& wine… It’s really all a girl needs.


The joys of creation

I was scrolling along on Tumblr and came across this.

I try to follow as many inspirational things as possible because I think it’s important to be surrounded and reminded of positivity.

Thought this was well said!
