Everyone has dreams. But, certainly, not everyone the courage to follow them. Since that pivotal day when a 6-year-old Johanna Lefebvre helped her grandmother carefully craft a gorgeous apple tart, Johanna discovered her love of baking. The precision, the sweetness, the warmth. It was this exact cinnamon-filled moment where she knew her life would revolve ...

In a beautifully poetic and scientific article by Dr. Kelly Brogan, home birth is described as the opportunity of a lifetime. I couldn’t agree more. I am grateful to have received precious wisdom about home birth from women (🙏Hayley and Carol🙏) who had experienced it before me. This helped me immensely, to feel at ease ...

Recently Chloe and I created an ingenious and sophisticated soirée concept called… *Drum roll please* Pancakes and Disney Movies. It’s exactly what you think it is. Getting together and eating yummy, vegan pancakes with maple syrup, berry-chia compote, and… watching Disney movies. Call us un-deep and un-philosophical if you wish, but… sometimes you’ve been working ...

It’s true, being vegan can be tricky at times. Not so much because of what you can and can’t eat, nor even because of the challenge of finding shoes that are cruelty-free, chic and comfortable.

I’ve got a massive case of wanderlust. It may be that I’ve read Vagabonding twice in the last few months… though, if I’m being entirely honest, when you’re surrounded by besties having bébés (here’s looking at you, Chloe, Sydnee, Leann, Tara, etc. 🤰🏼), and you’re about as ready to procreate as you are to go bungee jumping… you ...

This year I spent my very first Christmas away from home. Without wishing to turn this into a sob story, it was hard. Home for me equals love, understanding, and tons of cuddles with my nearest and dearest. And as much as I’m grateful to now have two places to call home, whereas some people don’t ...
