Baths and Bubbles

I pour in the milk, the creamy consistency swirls in the water – instinctively I relax. I slowly take a long match from a glass blue bottle (a gift that I bought for myself for this very process) and I light the variety of candles that each remind me of a [...]

Offline Paradise

It was late, dark and I was standing on the street saying goodbye to my friend, Gez, feeling as if another ‘problem’ came my way I may well super-implode. With only days until my holiday I had that feeling so many of us have, that I simply couldn’t fit everything in [...]
