Escape to the Cotswolds

In the blink of an eye, a few months have passed since I last wrote and it's safe to say that I'm out of the routine of writing once again. So I'd make my return by sharing some snaps and recommendations from a recent long weekend in the Cotswolds. From the...

Reclaiming your attention – setting better boundaries with tech 

In this day and age, it's safe to say that the majority of us clock up some pretty hefty amounts of screen time each day. Many of us stare at computers at work, only do the same with our phones in our free time. In a bid to improve my overall wellbeing, I recently...

Hello! It's been a few weeks since I last had the chance to write. In all honesty, I don't have anything massively exciting to report. I feel like life goes through seasons of action and seasons of reflection, and since the start of the year it has been a season of...
