January Favourites

The first month of the year has been both refreshing and exhausting with equal measure. I started the year full of motivation and ideas ready to be explored, but sometimes (and by sometimes I mean always), life decides to throw some hurdles your way. I do not want to dwell on the negative though, so […]

IV. London Snapshots -Parks and museums

The last few days in London were spent in the company of trees, squirrels, deer and the beauty of nature and art. On Sunday we visited Richmond Park, an enormous green space that is perfect for long walks, horse riding, bird watching or simply lazing around and enjoying the vibrant colours of nature. It was […]

III. London Snapshots – Covent Garden, Kings Cross

Covent Garden is one of my favourite places to visit in London, so we spent Saturday morning roaming the streets before breakfast. The dreary overcast sky can never take away the vibrant beauty of the place; it actually enhances it.  From the Covent Garden’s Apple Market, which offers a unique range of handmade items, to […]

II. London Snapshots – Hyde Park

The second day of our trip in London involved a lovely walk in Hyde Park from Marble Arch, surrounded by a beautiful riot of autumnal colours. The air was crisp and invigorating, and the sound of leaves crunching beneath our feet was absolutely exquisite. We met with loads of squirrels along the way, some shy, […]

I. London Snapshots

Oct 31st- Nov 5th There’s just something about London that makes you want to visit it again and again.  This was my third trip but surely not the last, because no matter how many times you visit, there is always something new to discover. It is a city full of quirks, colours, history,  and life, […]

Autumn Anticipations

“And all at once, summer collapsed into fall.” -Oscar Wilde My favourite season is finally here! Even though it is still stifling hot here, I instantly get in the mood for dark books, scary films and warm cups of coffee as soon as Autumn starts. I have already started buying trench coats and cosy sweaters […]

What am I reading this summer?

Even though I’ve been working a full-time job these last couple of years, summer still brings with it that sense of anticipation and excitement, reminiscent of long holidays without school, days spent at the beach with my family and having all the time in the world to do whatever I want. It is difficult to […]

Happy Bard-day William Shakespeare

April 23rd, 1564, Saint George’s day…and supposedly William Shakespeare’s birthday. The actual date is unknown, although he was baptised on April 26th, but I do find this date fitting, first because it’s also the date of his death in 1616 and secondly, I like to think that Spring welcomed the Bard in a chorus of […]

Untangling the knots of my life

I am 26 years old, almost 27, and I’m still at a loss as to how I should move on with my life. There is this constant pressure surrounding me, forcing me to act in a certain way, whether I like it or not. It doesn’t matter if it’s from family, friends or mere acquaintances, […]
