Get exactly what you want :: The power of setting intentions

One of the hardest things is knowing what you want. Really truly knowing what you really truly want. We get caught up in the hows and the what-ifs, and somewhere along the way our dreams and ambitions turn into excuses and our cans turn into can’ts. As kids we don’t...

70 Instagram Accounts to Follow for a Positive Feed

One of the very first things I did when I started my journey to recovery and got serious about my mental health was curate my newsfeed. Social media is powerful. We all know that what you read shapes your mind, and this isn’t limited to books, it’s blogs, social media...

Vegan Gluten Free Singapore Noodles

Vegan Gluten Free Singapore Noodles

Those of you that know me will know that my culinary skills are somewhat unexplored [I don’t cook]. And to be honest, my relationship with food is pretty complicated [I eat my emotions] and while I was unwell [anxiety and depression] I used food as a form of self...

How to create a photo collage with jute string and an old frame

I’ve been wanting to do this for ages! In my previous home I had a similar thing but without the frame. I really love how flexible it is. Every December I go through my photos from the year and do a print order. I always print doubles so that I can gift the extras to...

Bringing the magic of nature into the living room

Bringing the magic of nature into the living room

I had never been a big fan of indoor plants. I always believed that that’s where the spiders lived. But I have since realised that that is ridiculous; we all know that the spiders live under the bath and under the sink [at least they do in this house!] I went to visit...

Emeli Sande released a new single this week. My friend MCB sent it to me and said that she thought it was written just for me. It made me cry. Alone in a hotel room in Koh Lanta, Thailand. Reflecting on my time here. And still receiving support from my team back home....

Food poisoning round 2, Paradise round 2 and Goodbyes round 2

So here we are, back in Lanta. This time, instead of the beach bungalows we went for a more budget option hostel. The first impression was great. I mean, we had come from a cockroach infested, Dark Magic harbouring, scary, drugged up Phi Phi… so anything would have...

Phi Phi, Dark Magic, and Sushi aka The One with the Cockroach

Phi Phi. Home of ‘The Beach’ with Leonardo Di Caprio. A must see Thailand destination by most people’s recommendations. I expected a party island but with such beauty that it takes the edge off of the 18yo tourist cringe of Patong… Well, this was something else. We...

Jellyfish, Cocktails, and Goodbyes

Jellyfish, Cocktails, and Goodbyes

After Patong and two nights of partying [where I opted out] we went to Koh Lanta. Oh. My. What a reprieve. We were so bloody happy! We got our own little ‘bungalow’ - essentially a detached private room with en suite - like we had in Pai. There were two pools [I...
