finding your people

I have moved house a few times in the past 2 years. And one of the biggest hassles with relocating (besides that whole packing / unpacking thing) is finding New People.

Let me explain what I mean by New People…

Driving from one side of town (where you now live)  to the other side of town (where you used to live) can be somewhat of an inconvenience. So it becomes necessary to find New People – a new doctor; a new dentist; a new naturopath; a new vet; a new massage therapist; a new dog groomer; a new beauty therapist. A Brand New Team. A support network of experts who you can trust and rely upon within close vicinity of your new home. Because there’s nothing worse than driving further than 5 minutes for an appointment for which you’re probably already running late.

In truth – I have been known to drive over 45 minutes to a dog groomer who
A. did an amazing job; and
B. could handle the giant attitude little Miss Emmy likes to unleash at the most unfortunate of times (aka in the middle of a haircut).

Anyway, my point today is –  I am recruiting A New Team. Again.

And I’ll probably share my findings with you right here. Watch this space.

it didn't fit...

It didn’t fit, it wasn’t right

Wasn’t just the size

They say you know when you know

I don’t know
I didn’t feel the fairy-tale feeling, no
Am I a stupid girl

For even dreaming that I could

Yes, yes - I am a Katy Perry tragic.

And beside the fact that I LOVE this song; it also seems a very appropriate way to re-launch Starts with Cupcakes.

"Andie in Wonderland" was like an impulse buy on a shopping spree.

It didn't quite fit, but I bought it anyway; and then it hung in my wardrobe for a while, but I never wore it.
Because in the end, it's about comfort. And Starts with Cupcakes just fits me better.

So here it is... Another makeover for my little blog as I wrap myself in an old favourite.

And I can tell you already - it feels good to be 'home'.

An Ode to Channing

I couldn't decide on a suitable post for my return to blogging after such a long hiatus.

There's just so much to catch up on!

But for now?

If you haven't seen it - You're welcome.

If you have seen it - You're welcome.

On a sidenote - LOL @ Miley Cyrus. She deserves a blog post all of her own......
