Eat Yourself Happy

Last week, I had the absolute pleasure of attending an Action For Happiness event in London called Eat Yourself Happy where Rachel Kelly, Alice Mackintosh and Dr Rupy Aujla were speaking. And so, for this week’s blog, I am returning to my all time favourite topic: food. I feel that food and [...]

For the Love of Food

I love food, and I love people… there is nothing better for me than sharing a meal with some friends, family and loved ones (often helped by a log fire and an exceptionally good cheese board!). So I was interested to read this week in one of my favourite publications, Positive [...]

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 [...]
