I'm going to be completely honest and say I'm about a year and a half late in writing this. For some reason, all of my truly travel related post have been tangled up in the drafts folder!? But enough is enough, they deserve to be published too! So without further delay, who wants to hear … Continue reading 4 Reasons To Cruise Through The Gulf of Mexico
Somewhere in the last 24 hours of travel I lost my phone charger. Luckily when this happened my phone was charged enough to act as my alarm clock and still wake me this morning, of course the 3% didn't last long when I began my morning routine of social media checks... It wasn't long till I … Continue reading Lessons from my iPhone
I learnt a lot this weekend. From so many different people. In so many different areas and spaces. It was concentrated, mind-bending, spirit altering, moments of impact. I learnt more about life, about people, about mothers and women, about grace, about love, about rain, about privilege, about the One that matters most, about purpose and … Continue reading The More I learn, The Less I Know
We cannot deny that there is a new kind of 'joy' in society today that is released when a worthy instagram moment presents itself, right? right. Any frequent instagram user loves the feeling a 'perfect shot' brings. From blogger-style #ootd shots in front of your garage door or simply a delicious sugar-dairy-gluten-free-meal at your local … Continue reading The most ‘instagrammable’ coffee spot in Durban (this week)
This morning's daily @sethgodin blog post spoke straight in to something I've been thinking a lot about lately and that is my "save as draft" habit I've acquired. I find a nugget of inspiration that I passionately want to share with the world. Once nugget transforms from thought to a written (imperfectly) post, instead of … Continue reading Save As Draft: beauty over perfection.
Pancake day is the best day. I don't know many people who don't like pancakes and now that we live in a world full of 'alternative' pancake recipes, there's no excuse not to indulge yourself in such a good day. Choosing to live a life with as little refined sugar as possible means that this year's … Continue reading Three Part Pancake Day Recipe
Hello and welcome to week two of 2017. I'm going to assume that you've had a great first week of resolutions... Counting all those calories so that you can work them off at the gym, right after you've had your 30 minutes of quiet time with your bible, right? Let's all laugh together. It's usually around … Continue reading “I hate That I Always Do That” – Knowing Yourself
Contrary to this publishing platform, words often fail me. Here I sit. Pool side on hot African summer night, it's the first evening of 2017, having just lived a typical Durban style day of slow living, I am considering what to write. Naturally I am a very reflective soul, always eager for a bit of … Continue reading 2017. When Words Fail Me.
Yesterday I had to make a little trip to Waitrose to hunt down some medjool dates to make sugar-free mince pies for Christmas day. Yes, I am aware of how pathetic that opening sentence sounds, but hear me out for a second because it's Christmas, and we all do silly things at Christmas. Wandering through the … Continue reading Cornwall Camping In December
'The highway sets the travellers stage' a poignant line from one of my favourite road trip songs and the perfect access point for this post that is staged on a 'highway', or if you're british, a motorway. Yesterday I spent five and a half hours on the road, 'driving home for christmas' in my trusty beast, … Continue reading It Hit Me Driving Home For Christmas
