About The Vanilla Blog

The difference between vanilla being “boring” and vanilla being “extraordinary” is a judgement. Vanilla is often used to describe something that is bland or dull. When I think of vanilla, I think about endless possibilities, a clean slate and the ultimate elegance of all ice cream.

I chose to name this blog vanilla not just because it is my favourite ice cream flavour, but because I want to share how I see the simple things in life as extraordinary opportunities.


I wish to share my journey with the world, because I believe everyone should share their story. As social beings, sharing personal experiences, struggles and accomplishments is what makes us feel human after all. 

So welcome, and thank you for joining me in this journey as I navigate what it means to live more with less and while I look towards the beauty in not everything, but every moment.  


Welcome to my jaunt through life.
