Perception

Perception is a funny thing. If you’re new here you may have missed this post which I wrote back when it wasn’t minus ridiculous degrees. If you don’t have time to read it, it was a personal post I wrote about being vulnerable, growing up and the emotions which accompany both and I honestly didn’t expect […]

Taco Bell Southampton

Do you ever go to a launch event and find a prop which perfectly describes you at every social event, ever? No. Me neither. *whistles* The thing is, food is great. I mean, I’m sure as grown up humans who survived the first stages of infancy and went on to feed yourselves, that you are well […]

Roasted Pumpkin Soup

Pumpkins. A fruit (yes for realz) which has grown increasingly popular with every spiced latte, pie and cake that each season brings. But no matter what you do with them whether you carve, roast or puree – one thing’s for certain; soup is a timeless dish, and now that the sun sets around 4pm (gulp) and […]

Pickwell Farm Pumpkin Picking!

Autumn is a wonderful time. Darkness falls quickly, evenings feel cosier and you can grow out the leg fuzz because let’s face it, it’s freezing so aint nobody going to see beneath those million layers. But aside from being able to get into your pyjamas that much sooner in the evening, it also marks the arrival […]

Goodwood Revival

One of the best things about where I live is my proximity to Goodwood. It has the aerodrome, the motor track and every year it hosts an array of incredible events, including the infamous Goodwood Revival. Goodwood Revival is an event I have wanted to go to for years, but whenever that time of year […]

Surviving Long Haul Economy

Do you ever look back in your drafts and find random posts which you started and never went back to?  “Surviving Long Haul Economy” was one of those, dating all the way back to 2014. Its contents? “Make more money and fly business class instead.” Good job Amy. Solid advice. One can only assume that I wrote […]

Where To Eat In Pattaya

As S and I clambered out of the car with sleepy legs, “where to eat in Pattaya” was the first question which crossed our minds. We had just arrived at our hotel after a swift two hour drive from Bangkok, and as always… We were hungry. The problem with hunger is that I go from ‘hungry’ […]

Body Confidence

Words can heal, words can inspire, words can defend, and words can unite. But when the words you are hearing are; “You alright there fried eggs” “You’d look so pretty if you didn’t have that wonky tooth” “Wheyyy, check out those thunder thighs” Words can hurt. Words hurt so much more than people realise, and […]

Veranda Resort Pattaya Review

“The cure for everything is saltwater; sweat, tears or the sea” And as I didn’t really fancy an entire break of exercising or crying, a weekend at the seaside Veranda Resort was my cure of choice.     As I mentioned in my previous post S and I wanted to go down south for a […]

The Art Of Slowing Down

Slowing down in a city where you can quite literally feel the energy pulsate around you, is a pretty daunting task but one that I found completely necessary.     You see I’d be planning to go to Thailand for a while now as I had been missing Tom Yum Goong a fair deal and […]
