Are you tired of hearing bloggers complain about the constant changes to Facebook? If I wanted to hear whining all the time I’d work in customer service for an airline. I’m all for the changes Facebook is making. First off, and I’m talking to you bloggers, no one gives a shit about your reach. LITERALLY…

2015 commenter of the year // movita beaucoup

This week, I read through every comment left on my blog in 2015. There were a lot. (Amazing given that I abandoned this space for about six months to live like a cave goblin.) So many of you made me snort, chortle and laugh this year! After some careful consideration, I have chosen Stephbo, aka…

i love you with all my butt | movita beaucoup

I knew 2.0 was the guy for me the very first time we met. And when, on our second date, I drooled on my pants and he didn’t bat an eye, I was quite sure he liked me too. But I knew he loved me when he didn’t break up with me after I sleep farted on his…

Recently, my friend Bobbie shared this photo on Instagram: That’s one of her best friends, Sequins, waiting for his dinner in a high chair. Because that’s how Sequins rolls. It got me thinking about an incident that occurred over a decade ago when Bobbie came to visit me in… where I was living at the time. I’m…

Happy birthday, Adopamop! The Beaucoup clan got way more awesome once you slid in and joined the team. You melted our hearts, and now there’s snow way we could imagine our lives without you.

chocolate chip cookies | movita beaucoup

Sometimes it is the simple things in life that are the most satisfying. The perfect chocolate chip cookie, for example. Just ask Haddy. She’s been researching them for years. Crispy edges. A chewy centre. The correct ratio of chocolate chips to dough. Not thick – never thick! And once you’ve had the perfect bite? Well,…
