Running…like Yoga…like trying your best

I love to run. Sometimes I think I might not like it before I go but then I go and I’m just instantly present. It’s like a union. That’s why I feel running is like yoga. Once my breath finds a pattern I forget my legs are moving, they just seem to do it on…

Calling on Clarity – a May monthly review

Oh hello June!! 🌷 Anyone else super happy to be in a space where you need a cardigan not a coat! So my intent for the month of May was “calling on clarity” – it’s been so brilliant to bring focus to where I am with my career, projects and making decisions! Lime kilns on…

What’s in your wardrobe?

Last month I blogged about how I’d found it a little tricky to source more ethical clothing brands and find out any information about them in my Zero Waste update. Always willing to find a creative approach I decided to just try and educate myself a little more about ethical clothes along the way. All…

Education or a year of play – an update!

I just wanted to pen my thoughts as an update into where we are at in our decision making process for our little boy starting school. I wrote a little about our considerations around a year of free play here… a month ago. The honest answer…at the moment – STUCK! We’ve talked about it loads,…

That day in London

It was August, it was hot, around 8am and in those moments on what should have been a quick walk to a tube station to wave Dave off to work, I was jolted into crippling fear grasping for any sense of calm I’d ever known instead. I still remember the words she shrieked at me…

With the full moon I’ll go…

TRIGGER WARNING – this post is about death and cycles of life and is written directly from the heart sharing what I’ve learnt about being peaceful about the end of life. Writing this way helps me to move on so if you’d like to read it you are very welcome. “We are all just walking…

Cleanse, create and grow – a monthly review…

‘Cleanse, create and grow’ was my intent for the month of April. When I set it I didn’t feel it was as strong as it could be but I went with it! I was heading into detox and lots of exploratory territory at work where ideas needed to pop up as quickly as we would…

A tiny mouse and a full night’s sleep!

If you follow me on Instagram you might have picked up on our house mouse saga! We have a house mouse! It’s just one! I’ve never seen it but Dave sees it most nights. He’s a tiny tiny field mouse! He’s been absolutely no bother ie we’ve lived in harmony for a good few months….

Planning a wedding without a “save the date”

When you manage creative projects for a living it’s tricky to get excited about planning another one. I learnt a new ball game on Sunday – you stand in a circle and choose someone to throw the ball to and then some else throws it to you. You continue until everyone has had a turn….

12 month’s of Creativity, learning and Play?

So I wanted to write a little about our decision making process for thinking through home educating our little boy who is August born for 12months. If his birthday was 5days later than it is he’d be due to start school in 2019 not this coming September. That’s the way our school system works. In…

Conscious beauty choices and why I’m detoxing after Easter!

I am IN LOVE with my Zao brand Blusher – I bought it from online Instagram shop ‘Plastic Freedom’ literally as soon as they started stocking the brand! My cheeks have been without blush for too long as I ran out of my mabelline cream blush and have found it hard to understand the ingredients…
