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 […]

Festive Season

It is finally December, which means time for me to start listening to Christmas songs on repeat and watch all of my favourite Christmas films! I think I love the expectant build up to Christmas more than I actually love Christmas day, probably because that feeling of having something to look forward to adds some […]

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, […]

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, […]

Art Journal

Drawing and journalling are my favourite things to do in my free time, apart from reading. However, life often gets in the way and these last couple of months I barely had time to even steal a glance at my sketchbook. I guess you fall into this tedious routine of work, sleep and more work, […]
