WELLNESS & WANDERLUST WEDNESDAY with professional travel photographer, Søren Thuesen

A VIEW LESS ORDINARY A conversation with creative explorer, Søren Thuesen, aka s1000 With his eye for incredible composition and tone, Søren has been among my favourite travel photographers since I first came across his work on Instagram. His captivating imagery seems born of an intuitive understanding of the visual impact of scale, geometry, line […]

2017: LET’S DO THIS & DO IT WELL! (my annual visualisation mood board)

In amongst the cooking prep in our brand new place, the study (new for 2016), the content creation work (also new for 2016) and being with all three children (yep, another gift of 2016) there’s been one big thing on my mind over the past two days; setting my intentions (or #goals, if you will) […]

PEPPERMINT & STRAWBERRY CHOCOLATE BARK (a revamped version of an old classic!)

Firstly, much love and warm Christmas wishes to all those celebrating today! Over 4 years ago (I cannot believe it was so long ago!) I posted a recipe on this very blog for homemade Peppermint Chocolate Bark after seeing the famous Williams Sonoma original all over the internet and several variations of DIY “imitations” on Pinterest. Interestingly, […]

WELLNESS & WANDERLUST WEDNESDAY with featured holistic nutritionist & intrepid traveller, Lana Jankovic

JUST GO! If holistic nutritionist and passionate life-lover, Lana Jankovic, doesn’t inspire you to want to step away from your computer, venture out into the wilderness and embrace whatever comes your way, I am not sure who will.

GREEN KITCHEN STORIES SUPPERCLUB AT URBAN DELI

An alternative name for this post could well be “We came, we ate, we listened/chatted/enjoyed!”, as this pretty much sums up my experience of meeting for the first time both the couple behind the incomparable Green Kitchen Stories, David and Luise, and Sara, the bento design queen of London (known in blog & Instagram circles as shisodelicious). After […]

50 THINGS ABOUT ME (part 1)

In all the time I have been active in the blogosphere, I have never done a ‘things about me’ post, let alone a ‘5o things about me’ post (though I have shared quite a few random facts via Instagram post captions 😛 ). However I thought it was an opportune time to take the plunge and do so […]

KICKING SUGAR TO THE CURB (some myths busted + a giveaway spot on the I Quit Sugar 8-Week Program)

30 MINUTES TO A VISITOR-READY HOME (an ongoing domestic challenge)

Have you ever heard the quote “You are your home”? Does it resonate with you in some way, making you feel warm and fuzzy… or slightly uncomfortable? We’ve been in the process of selling our home over the past few weeks and, amongst other things, it has meant a lot of cleaning, organising and sorting out and […]
