Things have been a bit quiet around here lately (ummm…. one MIGHT say they always are, but let’s pretend I’m usually posting really regularly for now) and it’s because I’ve been working on a project with a friend that I’m really excited to share with you! Introducing… PICK + PALEO Leah first introduced me to the Whole30 which I read about on ….read more

Just One Day by Gayle Forman

4th December 2015

A book about love, heartbreak, travel, identity, and the “accidents” of fate, Just One Day shows us how sometimes in order to get found, you first have to get lost. . . and how often the people we are seeking are much closer than we know. Over the last year I’ve read more YA novels than I ever have previously. ….read more

I found this fab little sub-site on the NY Times website called Anatomy of a Scene and I’ve just spent the last hour completely enthralled by it. I’m not a huuuuge watcher of movies anymore.

As someone with quite the collection of cookbooks, I feel like it’s about time I start sharing my favourites with you! So, onto my most recent find… First, let me explain. Chelsea’s first cookbook didn’t impress me at all. Filled with chicken pies and burgers and spag bols, it all just seemed a bit… pedestrian. Could we not just google ….read more

My Top 5 Podcasts

2nd November 2015

I go for a lot of runs and walks, so having something to constantly listen to is a no-brainer. A few months back, I got really sick of the same old Spotify playlists so decided to change things up and listen to a few podcasts. And thank goodness I did! It’s like a whole new world!
