SPRING READING WRAP UP

 Ok. Mixed review on this one. On the one hand, a lot of this book really spoke to me and not just because of the cat but also, that too. It is an unforgettable book for sure. A Room Called Earth is a multidimensional story of a young autistic woman whose radical views illuminate a…

ROOTED IN YOUR VALUES

There is a very old Oak tree that stands at the edge of the bushland. The trunk is gnarled. It’s limbs are heavy and reach outward, crowned by a canopy of leaves. It rustles in the summer breeze. This afternoon a storm brews. The wind picks up, catching the tips of the branches and the…

BREATHE EASY: WHY YOU SHOULD TRY YOGA!

This morning as I stood in line for a coffee, carrying my mat in a haze of post yoga bliss a woman behind me smiles knowingly and nods to the mat in my arms “I wish I could do yoga too but I am so inflexible, I can’t even touch my toes!” Let me preface…

DO YOU BELIEVE IN MAGIC?

I have recently finished re-reading the infamous Eat Pray Love. I bloody love this story, I do not know how many times I will read this or how many different things I will take from it but each time I come away from the book rethinking the way I want to live my life and…

FEEL THE FEAR & DO IT ANYWAY.

I am sat in the sand writing this post on Elwood beach, Melbourne, Australia. It is only 9am but the early morning sun is already hot on my shoulders. It’s a Wednesday so the beach is almost empty bar a few dog walkers. The ocean really does something for my soul, it makes me so…

AUTUMN WRAP UP

Hello book lovers. I know we all say this every year but I cannot actually believe that it is December again? I don’t know if a few months of lockdown early on in the year has played a part in this but it feels like Christmas 2020 was last week? I can also only apologise…

LOVE VALENTINES?

Happy Valentines Day. I guess the fact that Valentines Day fell on a Monday is fitting, two days you kind of wish you could skip past. I will happily acknowledge the fact that Valentines Day is (for the most part) a load of old shite. It is a commercialized tradition that actively encourages us to…

KIDS BOOKS 101

One of my best and oldest friends had a baby girl in February and I have been a complete emotional wreck ever since. It is so exciting to have a new girl in the gang but also exciting for me because I can now start looking for books for her. Which is, as I am…

BUCKET LIST? FUCK IT.

I am sure I am not on my own here but I feel like I have wasted a lot of time recently. It has been a toxic combination of Covid and anxiety. Or maybe it is because I am getting older and more and more friends seem to be upturning that imaginary hourglass every chance…

ANXIETY AND ME; A CAUTIONARY TALE.

This week is mental health awareness week, in light of this I have decided to post this short piece that I have been sitting on for a while. I am not a doctor or a medical health professional so remember this when reading. I am however someone who has spent the majority of my twenties…
