Welcome to Rhyme and Ribbons!
I missed my calling in life and should have been a librarian. I’m also a foodie, a feminist, and I cry at the drop of a hat.
I was raised in the desert (New Mexico). I went to university in Georgia for an undergraduate degree in international politics and theatre. While at uni, I studied abroad at LAMDA (London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts). It was literally a life changing opportunity. I met my lovely now-husband then, and I was convinced I was meant to live in the UK. After graduation, I immediately returned to England to study drama for a Master’s. Fast forward 7 years and here we are!
I started blogging several years ago when Sam spent a season at the RSC (Royal Shakespeare Company) and I had some free time that I desperately needed to fill.
Rhyme & Ribbons is my place to enjoy the small things in life.
Most of this involves food, travel and small adventures. I over-think almost everything, and am a chronic worrier so it’s nice to have a place to focus on the positive and be creative.
You’ll see restaurant reviews, travel posts, London happenings, my desperate attempts to be part of the Great British Bake Off, and some fashion. Every year I run the #bakeoffbakealong (join in?) I just relocated to York in Autumn 2016. And in the summer of 2017, I shifted my eating habits for the good of the environment to become a plant-based eater.

A peek behind the blogger curtain:
I’m an INFJ. I can be annoyingly tidy. I’ve been known to clean up around people. (Oops). I wear my heart on my sleeve and have been accused of being overly emotional. (I’ve also been accused of being very much like New Girl’s Jess Day). It’s cliche but my wedding day was one of the happiest days of my life. Want to learn more about me?

But most importantly, I can never eat just one cookie.
