Funemployed: #Blessed! (Week 4)

So it’s officially been a whole month since I left my corporate job. Time flies!

We’ve just had Thanksgiving here in Canada, and it’s a good time to reflect on all the things I’m ever so thankful for. (more…)

Fall time, soup time!

Are you ready for fall?

It finally is fall here, that chill that gets to your bone and a reason to break out my scarves. My scarves collection is really the only reason I can get through the season. Looks like fall has appeared right on time, as Thanksgiving in Canada is right around the corner. (more…)

Funemployed: Week #3

Hello and welcome to my week No. 3 Update – Happy October!

It’s finally feeling like fall, and a perfect excuse to wear my scarf collection! But weather aside, fall is a great segue into feeling like the end of the year is here. There’s about 90-something days left in the year! Can you believe it?

Funemployed: And loving it (#2)

It’s been two weeks since I’ve been free of my adult responsibilities. Surprisingly, I’ve not yet hit panic mode. I’ve been actually enjoying it. Part of me is scared that I will get used to this and be okay with being unemployed forever. It is quite easy to fill my time.

This post is later than I would like, but last week was unique as I closed out the week  in Scottsimg_2415dale, Arizona, for a friend’s bachelorette party. Admittedly, I basically used this as an excuse to do nothing productive and just relax before an extended weekend of  partying.

Funemployed: A new adventure (It’s time for a side-step)

img_8026Four weeks ago, I made what is the biggest, bravest decision of my life. Yes, this decision was even bigger than getting married.

I walked into my manager’s office, and told her that I had made the decision to leave my current role without any plan of comes next for me. It was not for another role, it wasn’t to go back to school; it was that I’d rather be doing nothing than than be in this job. It was one of the most liberating moments of my life. It was as if, after weeks, I had finally been able to take a breath. I don’t think I’ve spoken with this much conviction ever! So much, that each person I spoke to about my decision knew that there wasn’t a way to change my mind. I was determined to make a change, and this was step one!

Treat yo keto self!

OK, so I have to confess something, there’s only so much bacon and cheese I can eat. It tastes good, but I still have the biggest sweet tooth of all and chocolate is my one true love!

Spring Cleaning and New Beginnings

Hello Spring! So glad you decided to stop by!

Well not really – here in Toronto, it’s April and I still need my winter jacket! Snow/ice storms have continued their streak in forcing us to postpone plans.

But nevertheless I’ve decided to forge forward and start my springtime routine, maybe the weather will follow.

Confessions of a Pakistani Bride

As far as traditions go, I’m not big on them.

If you’ve ever watched a Bollywood movie with a wedding, you know that Indian/Pakistani weddings are a grand affair. Weddings are multi-day events that involve extended families on both the bride’s and groom’s sides, including that second-cousin’s brother-in-law’s aunt you’ve probably never met.

Cookies and Cream Instant Pot Cheesecake!!!

 

I’m terrible at sales pitches but if anyone ever says they’re thinking about the Instant Pot – I’m totally guilty of jumping into the conversation and selling it as hard as I can – as if I’m getting a commission from the sale.

Strawberry Oatmeal Jam Cups

I have a love-hate relationship with Daylight Savings Time. Part of it is because I really don’t understand why we bother to change the time in this day – but that’s a rant for another day.
