Browsersync Server is your little development friend

Posted on January 8th, 2018.

Ever used Browsersync? If you’ve used Sage you’ve likely used it since we moved from LiveReload. Anyways… assuming you have node/npm available at the command line you can install Browsersync globally like so: $ npm install -g browser-sync Once you’ve done that, navigate to a folder with an index.html file in it (maybe it has […]

maybe-rgba() sass function

Posted on December 16th, 2017.

Earlier today I found myself in a funny situation. I have a sass mixin than adds a screen to divs which expects 2 arguments: $color and $opacity. From there, it takes those values and adds the appropriate code. Only problem, is I’m using my new customizer library (coming soon to a GitHub near you, I […]

fRamen: “Fancy” Instant Ramen

Posted on October 16th, 2017.

Cheap and easy food isn’t that hard if you know the right places to look, and often you can make it look really pretty too!! I’m always looking for things I can make on the go with ingredients I can keep in my fridge and use for different stuff. Enter fRamen: Instant Ramen is one […]

Nomading 2016: I suck at travel blogging – London & Berlin

Posted on June 20th, 2017.

I just realized that I never finished my blog series on traveling at the end of 2016. I had lots of fun for the rest of the trip, and while I got a little sick, it was awesome to hang out with my best friend Lewis in a totally new place! We also stayed with […]

Nomading 2016: Days 10 & 11 – Portuguese Craft Beer/London Bound

Posted on December 30th, 2016.

Infinitely less exciting than renting a motorcycle, but still awesome, I made the last day in Portugal about their craft beer offerings. Then I had to leave that beautiful place and get to London! I know I haven’t written in a while, and I’m sorry for that, but here’s to me eventually getting on track…   […]

Nomading 2016: Days 6 & 7 – Hello Lisbon!

Posted on December 21st, 2016.

The terrible layover was worth it. The Porto airport started bustling and I went to get a shot of espresso and it was €1 – THAT is what I’m used to for some european ‘spro shots. I realized it was gonna be a great leg of the trip as soon as we were leaving Porto and I SAW […]

Nomading 2016: Day 5 – Bye Reykjavík!

Posted on December 18th, 2016.

I got up early once again for a last adventure: a visit to Reykjavík’s naturally heated pools with some new friends, and then on the way to the airport! And then on the way to another airport! To endure the WORST LAYOVER EVER. To then go to another airport.   Laugardalslaug – The Reykjavík Public Pools I met a […]

Nomading 2016: Day 3 – Road Trip

Posted on December 15th, 2016.

On this road trip I found out you can’t just go to Reykjavík and leave it at that. The real beauty of Iceland is in the countryside, and it’s a big place, so you’ve got to do a lot of driving. Luckily, I like driving. Keep in mind, I decided to take these two days […]
