6 Meditation Strategies for the Busiest Brains

Meditation strategies

  It’s one thing to make time for meditation a habit, it’s another to actually meditate. If you’ve integrated meditation into your routine, and you aren’t a monk… then you probably know what I’m on about. Of course, those thoughts will come and go (literally I remember some of mine from this morning: which of […]

How I Got Out of My Workout Rut

Workout Rut

As much as I don’t like to admit it, I’m a creature of habit. My workout ruts will come and go as the seasons do: they are inevitable and uncontrollable (at least at the time of writing. I’m sure Google and/or Elon Musk are working on it.) As the mornings grow darker and colder (and if […]

Peanut Butter & Jelly Protein Bowl

Peanut Butter & Jelly Protein

  I remember a time when I didn’t like peanut butter. It disturbed me – how a peanut butter sandwich* would stick to the roof of my mouth, rendering me speechless and not in a good way. *We didn’t add jelly – or jam – because the concept was literally foreign in our Anglo-Irish household. […]

November Goal: Ask

November goal

Agh I caught myself nearly apologising for not blogging more regularly last month, but then I remembered that post… For what it’s worth, I think my blogging schedule will look a little less regular for a while, as I’m trying to grow my freelance design and consulting biz. If I’ve learnt anything from my goal-setting […]

5 Snacks I’m Obsessed With

5 Snacks I'm Obsessed With

I’ve experimented in the past with different numbers of meals per day – and as anal as that sounds, in my head, eating isn’t always as simple as ‘eat when you’re hungry’. For one, life doesn’t always work as predictably as we like. I can’t guarantee I’ll be near a fridge at the point my […]

Florence in Pictures

Florence in Pictures

Florence is one of the few places in the world that I’ve sworn to visit again, and actually kept to my word. I had a good reason to: my dad swears his favourite city in the world is Rome. But… he hasn’t been to many other cities. Florence was one of them. For me, Florence […]

How To Avoid The PITfalls (Heh) Of Natural Deodorants

Natural Deodorant Recipe

I think getting to grips with natural deodorants is one of the biggest roadblocks people have on their way to going ‘all natural’ with skincare and beauty products. It may be my stubborn Aries nature, but I refused to let my pits get the better of me. Just like no-pooing, there was a lot of […]

A Healthy Morning Routine (Interview Series #11)

Healthy Morning Routine

I never really got that expression: “Red sky in the morning; Shepherd’s warning. Red Sky at night; Shepherd’s delight.” I like red skies at anytime (then, I’ve never had to lock after sheep…) and we’ve seen some beauts in London town lately. Until yesterday morning. The drizzle is back and l fully bailed on my morning walk. […]
