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
Following my previous post, Preparing My Heart For Christmas ... Having lived a split life between the northern and southern hemisphere, I have become very accustomed to spending Christmas in two very opposing ways.

Another almost-vlog.
Video is the future, right? Well... who knows what the future holds at this point. Either way, video has always been one of my favourite ways to express myself. It's just unfortunate the last three years at university stole this joy from me! So. No more. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SYa1FkhZq4E An 'almost' Vlog.... This time last year … Continue reading Back To Video w/THIS ALMOST VLOG.

Before you attack me for being an overdramatic, privileged white girl, hear me out. Yes I am about to talk politics, and no I am not an educated politician, but I am enthusiastic about people and yesterday so many people felt a loss of faith and hopelessness in each other. Personally, I was hurt and confused … Continue reading Why I Cried Myself To Sleep Last Night
"I love brunch" - a sentence that's hard to disagree with. Breakfast at lunch, champagne before noon and a brilliant reason to sleep in after 7am. Brunch is community.
