Peak Cheese

I can’t believe I’m typing this, but the day has come, and I just have to share it with you all. After extensive research, training, and pushing myself beyond the limits of what I thought was possible, it’s finally happened. The culmination of years of work. I have hit: peak cheese. Now, I enjoy cheese... Continue Reading →

Glad You Could Make It

'Glad you could make it,' is a phrase that has been said to me often and somewhat sarcastically throughout my life. I don't intend to be late. I do try to plan and be on time.  Between the friends who have learnt to time check me (lie to me) and the ones I send the... Continue Reading →

Namaste Here And Nap

Hot yoga. Where arriving late means not only being right at the front, but also by the draughty side door. The instructor was launching himself into new positions every few seconds whereas I was just bone tired. Like ok I'm unfit but surely not this bloody unfit to the point where each new pose is...

It’s a left, right? Right. Wait…

Less than a week in, and the feeling of overwhelm has receded to lapping waves rather than crashing tsunamis. After being welcomed into the country by two awesome friends in Auckland, I’ve been shown around my new town by two extremely kind and ridiculously helpful new friends. Oh, and made a canine best pal as... Continue Reading →

Let me introduce you to the Miracle Morning. Essentially a wonderful plan of making your day more balanced and productive. Set aside one hour to work on yourself – read, exercise, meditate, journal, plan, and see how it transforms your entire day. Your life even. I...Well. I read the book. I even made notes. You...

This Is How It Always Is, Laurie Frankel

This focused on a topic I know next to nothing about, and it was wonderful. Claude is the youngest of five brothers and from a very young age he prefers to wear dresses and barrettes and carry a purse. But that’s not all this is. The story of this whole family: Claude’s struggles, Poppy’s blossoming... Continue Reading →

The Roller Riddle

Riddle me this. How many gins does it take for me to say I’m going to start Roller Derby as a new hobby? One. The answer is one rather lovely, fragrant, cardamom spiced gin. And tonic. That, and a one hour windmilling wobble around a roller rink with some friends. One of which happens to... Continue Reading →

Eco Warrior

I recently invested in an Organicup. This is a miraculous device you use instead of sanitary towels or tampons. If you’re already cringing, now is the time to retreat from this. An efficient A to B transfer of that annoying monthly flow. No waste, less mess, cheaper for your purse. Eco-friendly too! Cardboard packaging so... Continue Reading →

Year One, Nora Roberts

My kind of book. The idea of a not too distant future where it all goes to hell. An interesting supernatural twist set this apart from some of my other recent reads. The inevitability of the world’s destruction, and the complete ignorance of the human race of the coming annihilation is sewn into the story... Continue Reading →
