Why I Broke Up With Diet Coke

Isn’t it weird how nothing changes, and then suddenly - life is on the move again? It’s strange because I never tend to realise I’m in a rut until I need a pretty big shovel. I recently made the decision to give up diet drinks - Pepsi Max, Diet Coke, 7 Up Free (the usual… Continue reading Why I Broke Up With Diet Coke

Moments & Momentum

If life has taught me anything in my 24 years on the planet, it's that dwelling in the past will bring nothing but trouble. Every so often, however, it creeps up on me - like a shadow lurking in my steps, waiting. Sometimes in the car, sometimes in the middle of a restaurant, sometimes at… Continue reading Moments & Momentum

Other Lands

There's a forest near my house, and whilst it isn't particularly unique, special or outstanding, it's still one of my favourite places in the world. Those that are willing to go far enough down the swallowing long stretch of terrain escape the crowds of dawdling Sunday strollers and relaxed dog walkers. Eventually, you'll find yourself… Continue reading Other Lands

The Leap

When I finished my first year of university exams, my older sister gave me a Skype call. Not to just congratulate me, but to invite me on a whirlwind rollerblading adventure around Switzerland. "We'll leave in three days." She had announced. Of course, I agreed. So off we set, two girls weighed down with two backpacks… Continue reading The Leap


New Year’s Revelations

The thing about New Year's resolutions is that really, they're only self-indulgent wishes. Rather than waiting for the stroke of midnight to start improving ourselves, we should be starting to change now. This very moment. I started early and cut half of my hair off this week. It was time for something different. Don't get… Continue reading New Year’s Revelations

Tracks Less Travelled

There's a Robert Frost quote that I think everyone should read at least once. "Two roads diverged in a wood, and I - I took the one less travelled by, and that has made all the difference."  I don't think there's anything wrong with doing things differently in life. The idea of being exactly like… Continue reading Tracks Less Travelled


New Year, Newer You

If we're going to be thinking about reflection and self-growth today, then     writing a list of New Year resolutions and things we'd 'hope' to achieve would be pretty useless. Ten pounds lighter by Tuesday? A mansion by Monday? The owner of a gold plated Porsche before bedtime?  Really, we should be focusing on… Continue reading New Year, Newer You


A shopping odyssey: failure, fatigue & final Finnish finds 

Delayed gratification is a beautiful thing. For me, it's the pure pleasure of finding the outft I've been after for ages. I trekked to six Zara stores in Berlin to find a beautiful grey knit jumper I've had my eye on for weeks. I wanted to buy it as an 'end of trip treat' on… Continue reading A shopping odyssey: failure, fatigue & final Finnish finds

Berlin: The Modern Beauty & The Beast 

I'm going to be honest with you. When I first arrived in Berlin, in the late hours of a foggy Sunday night, exhausted from never ending delayed flight delays and a dinner that consisted of a Starbucks Americano and a handful of dates, I immediately hated it. I didn't just hate the vast empty streets… Continue reading Berlin: The Modern Beauty & The Beast
