Wim Hof Ice Challenge

January 31, 2018

Hi guys! I shared on my Insta stories that I would talk a little about what I’ve been up to the last week. It’s a little out of the norm, but I think we’re on to something here so I deemed it important enough for its own blog post! So what I’ve been up to is called the Ice Challenge by Wim Hof. When Mr. B and I went to Whistler and did the Nordic baths at the Scandinave Spa…

Seat 2A Playlist!

January 23, 2018

The wait is finally over you sexy beasts because I’ve got SEAT 2A’S PLAYLIST!!! I thought that since the 1st year anniversary is only 2 months away for this second chance romance why not bring you for the first time ever the playlist that kept it going in the creation process. I’ve thought many times that I’d share this with you guys but that perhaps none of you cared. That’s silly though, because if you’re anything like me then you…

It’s no secret that Whistler inspired my first Contemporary Romance, SEAT 2A. Everything about the location is magical. The snow-capped granite mountains and romantic village stroll strung with Christmas lights are just to name a few. Whistler is a short hour and a half drive (depending on good weather) from the Vancouver, Canada International Airport. When you leave Vancouver the entire drive is along the Pacific Northwest Coast and let me tell you, BREATHTAKING! I visited Whistler 4 years ago…

A Path Less Traveled

January 14, 2018

I’m writing this for closure. Because somehow it blocks my flow. Seizes my ideas. Runs its exhausting course through my mind so late into the night that I can’t even write. Let me out! Let me out! it screams. I need to get this out. Before it screamed, Stop! Don’t go there. Follow me. Chose this marked path laid out for you. I don’t belong there anymore. Not any part about me does. I’m tired of hiding. Pretending. Shadowing myself…

Summer Travel

Midwestern States Road Trip

August 21, 2017

Friends and foe, I am so thrilled to be able to finally put on paper, er, computer, what I have been doing the last three weeks of my summer. Last year my sister attended a small little workshop with some ladies in her church where they shared their tips on how to successfully see all 50 states with their kids on a budget. Of course she came home pumped and well, we made it a reality. Last year we started…

2017 Challenge

April 17, 2017

Have you ever wished you could look back in time and see everything you did to get where you are now? The good, the bad, the smart, the stupid? Well I have. And 2017 will be a lot of firsts so I decided to vlog the year and put out one video a week to document not just my life, but the what, “What did Dela do to get here?!?” No secrets are left behind. I’m putting everything I have…

Easter Morning Orange Rolls

April 16, 2017

Happy Easter on this beautiful Sunday, friends! Today I wanted to share with you a Pinterest recipe I made a few years ago for Easter morning that quickly became a tradition in the Dela household. The original recipe is found over on Lemon Sugar’s website but I am posting it below for your convenience. This recipe is perfection and the sweet orange zest on Easter morning really is the perfect start to an eggcelent day. And if you’re not really a…

Break Traditions

March 21, 2017

Check out my new light from Echo Neon Studio over on Etsy! I saw these lights all over the Magic Convention a few weeks ago and was immediately dying to have one. Normally I probably wouldn’t have bought one, but since I am in the process of completing a work space for me I knew I had to spend majority of my small budge on this! Let’s just say I’m dying to hang it on my wall. I’ve used the…

SEAT 2A Cover Reveal

March 15, 2017

Today I am so excited to share with you the cover to my debut Contemporary Romance, SEAT 2A. When I started writing this book I was currently knee-deep in THE 52ND. I didn’t want to give up any time to Zara and Lucas, like at all, but these characters in SEAT 2A were begging to come out. I had a period of two weeks where I ended up letting go of THE 52ND completely to see where SEAT 2A could go with no…

                CUNNING. AMBITIOUS. DETERMINED. LEADERSHIP. Alright ma bookish peeps.
