Song of the City (Collectif)


LET ME SING YOU THE SONG OF MY PEOPLE!

That was THISCLOSE to being the title of this post but then I thought better of it. Really, I'm a professional. Sort of. Not really. Ok not at all...

What's Sara Reading? Spoonbenders by Daryl Gregory


Well it sure has been a hot minute since I had a "What's Sara Reading?" post so I figured it was time to talk about books. It's not that I haven't been reading a ton (I always have a book at hand - well, on my Kindle anyway!), I just haven't connected with much lately enough to want to write about it.

I have also been a little distracted/busy/focused elsewhere. The blog has definitely taken the back burner a bit since this summer. A lot shifted in my life after my car accident in June and I think it's slowly showing me how it has been affecting parts of my life.

Happy Haunting, Amelia Bedelia!


Happy Halloween, peanuts!


Anyone out there fans of Amelia Bedelia? She was one of our favorite books growing up. Apparently, there is an actual Halloween story called "Happy Haunting, Amelia Bedelia" but when I was little, we had just the self titled "Amelia Bedelia" by Peggy Parish and my mother would read it over and over with me.

Miss Semi Sweet's Goblin Cookies - Veganised!


I've been watching Miss Semi Sweet's YouTube channel for years now, loving how much she loves to explore retro recipes and dares to try even the worst ones for our entertainment. We share a love for the kitchen (as well as retro style!) and love her quirky and silly personality in each video she shares.


As I was putting together my Halloween posts for this week, I watched one of her videos with these cookies as the star and originally just wanted to try them for myself. Then I noticed they would be fairly easy to make vegan and then I thought, why not adapt the recipe and share my version here on homage to Miss Semi Sweet herself!

French Kiss (Lady V London Elsie Dress)


I never ever thought in a million years that I'd love a wiggle style dress as much as I love this Elsie dress by Lady V London. I bought it in August in preparation for my big trip to Europe to add to my booth uniform wardrobe.


The green and blue hues in the dress match our corporate colors and the more corporate style of the dress fit the business casual attire we decided on for staff in the booth. All the while being a super pretty dress? Winner winner!
