Have Yourself a ‘?’ Little Christmas

It’s nearly Christmas! And whatever faith you may be, living in London (as I do) you can’t help but notice the Christmas cheer… yet acknowledge the madness, hustle, bustle and let’s face it rising stress levels of many you encounter. With the Big Day just around the corner, I’m constantly aware [...]

Christmas Kindness

I want to talk about kindness. Christmas is almost upon us, a time of love, giving and festive cheer. And it feels right, to talk about kindness, to spread it, share it and celebrate it. Kindness has been all around me these few past weeks. When my mum had her accident [...]

Foods and Moods: Eat Yourself Happy

Since I have been on my health kick recently, and so had a particular interest in food, Sally recommended to me a recipe book called The Happy Kitchen by Rachel Kelly (who is also the author of a lovely book called Walking on Sunshine: 52 Small Steps to Happiness). The Happy [...]

Food for Thought

I want to talk about food. Now, I would consider myself a big eater. I am often baffled by the sheer volume of food I can fit into my stomach. Sometimes, however, I do things like have pizza and dough balls for lunch and then a huge Chinese takeaway for dinner [...]

The City of Angels: Lessons Learnt

I needed a tube of ointment. On prescription. I was finding LA daunting – big, brash and a far cry from my little home-town in the UK. Still, the plus would be everything was open 24 hours here and I’d have it in a jiffy. $140 later (and 4 minutes with [...]

Friends – The Key to Happiness

A couple of weeks ago I, and a group of my friends, took a trip to the Emerald Isle to celebrate one of us turning the big 4-0. We’ve known each other for nearly 30 years (I know what you’re thinking – how can that be possible? You don’t look like [...]

Runny eggs and the Now

Time – it’s the strangest thing. They always say as you get older, time passes more quickly, and I often smile and think I have turned into my grandma as I find myself repeating, “Where has the year gone, it’s almost Christmas?!”. It’s the age old thing that when you’re having [...]

The Kindness of Karma

Bali. An island teeming with beauty. While I could write endlessly about the exquisite natural attractions I visited on my recent trip, I want to write to you all about the beauty I found at the very core of the island, the beauty that makes this island my happy place. The [...]

Me, Meditation and My Neti-Pot

As I stood in front of Mark, I felt weak and tired. So much so I had to sit down during our (what was intended to be) brief chat. With all his positivity, the last thing I wanted to tell him was that I was struggling with my health and wondering [...]

My Perfect Place of Paradise

As I climbed out of the taxi my head ached, my chest hurt and my mind was spiralling out of control like a washing machine stuck on high spin unable to stop. I couldn’t get that horrid work email out of my thoughts and I could feel the obsessive thinking kicking [...]
