Keeping yourself well this winter

The days of pumpkin spice lattes and other obnoxiously sweet syrups are upon us. I, like anyone, love a few sweet treats this time of year, especially when the advent calendars start and there seems to be a something delicious at every corner. Staying well in the winter months needn’t be difficult and at large is centred around what you’re…

My immunity boosting morning routine

It’s getting to that time of year where everyone has a cough or a cold. I stand on the tube in the morning trying to ignore the fact I am in a germ-ridden tin can.

My morning drink for de-bloating

The few mornings that I wake up with a flat, non-distended stomach, feel like a blessing and I’m slowly finding ways to ensure that they come around…

A Ripple in the Ocean – Self Pep Talk

So I’ve moved to London. Perhaps the most daring thing I’ve ever done was commit to renting a property for a year on a temporary two-month intern salary with only the hopes and dreams of a job to rely on. Some might call it a very stupid idea, and I have to admit at times I’ve thought that myself. But…
