Hi! Hello! Welcome to Judskii.com! This is so exciting for me! I’ve finally got my own domain, and have so many new and exciting ideas and posts ready for this blog. We’re about to ramp it up!! I’ve got some new sections that are not food-focused (shock!): The Happy Brain, where I explore ideas and experiences that I hope will help me grow into a better, more positive person; Keep Learning, where I delve into topics that interest me, that I would otherwise not put time aside to learn; and the Book Nook, where I commit to reading more! Because really, that’s something that everyone wants to try to do. Unless you’re one of those people who are proud of not reading (like.. anything at all.), and if that’s the case, then we’re probably not friends.
Have a look around to see what else is new. 🙂
This is what I want the essence of my little place on the internet to be. I want to spread the word that even if your day seems dreary, and you seem to have lost your way in life or thoughts, you can just choose to be amazing, choose to do amazing things, and choose the amazing experience. If you live your life striving to choose amazing, then you will be amazing. This is something I still struggle with, but when I need a pick me up, I choose to do the things that make both me and the people around me happier and more joyful.
To celebrate this new domain, I’ve put together a little contest for a few of my favourite things!
I’m a sucker for beautiful notebooks, and this prize comes with three lined notebooks with gold foil covers and my favourite pen – the 7 year pen. It has a great solid weight to it and is supposed to last 7 years if you write less than 1.2 m a day. My last one lasted 2 years, which is not too shabby seeing as I usually lose mine before then. I wanted to keep the panda for myself, but these will look great on your desk; a little oasis in the hectic everyday. I’ve included this because I have this terrible compulsion to buy every cool notepad, sticky pad, notebook, stationery set ever.
We’ve also got a loose-leaf tea infuser, that goes right inside your mug and some marshmallow chocolate snacks to go with it during your relaxation time. People who know me know that snack time is very important, and my sweet tooth is basically beyond compare.
And last but not least, the Portlandia Cookbook, from the hilarious show, Portlandia; this book’s got some awesome recipes (the cacao bark looks amazing) and really great photos as well as some show trivia. I’ve got shelves of cookbooks and pinterest boards upon pinterest boards of new recipes. I love to eat, and when I have a craving, how else will you satisfy it in the middle of the night. (I give thanks to 24h grocery stores.) This book offers delicious photography that will definitely whet your appetite.
