Güten Tag my food-gawking friends! So my much anticipated long weekend trip to Berlin has passed… boo. But it does mean it’s time for me to share some of the eats (and drinks!) I guzzled there. I didn’t get as many shots as I normally would – I think my travelling comrades were getting a bit tired of my incessant food shoots – plus, I figured it was more important […]

I don’t normally find myself craving ‘comfort foods’ – I’m not even sure I know what a comfort food is. If it’s something sweet, starchy, salty… or all the above, then these cravings are usually pretty fleeting. Not this week. There’s something about working in a busy office, a long commute, and crappy weather that makes me cave. I needed cookies. I needed pudding. I needed a food hug! I […]

Generally speaking, I am an upbeat kind of cat. I am lucky, I appreciate my blessings and am rational enough to know how to turn a frown upside down. Generally… The last couple of weeks managed to throw me into an unusually emotional state – all I can say is I’m desperately thankful to be going on holiday tomorrow Anyway, I’m a true believer that when things aren’t going your […]

My 30th WIAW – how time flies… Well I’m another year closer to the big 3-0 myself now, and thought it was only right to share my day of birthday treats (and some pretty standard Cat Food eats) this week. Remember to visit Peas & Crayons for plenty more WIAW action: The day started a little lame – I had work to do, it was pissing it down, and I had a […]

My workout routine hasn’t changed greatly for the last couple of months. While I’m all for ‘if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it‘ mentality, I did feel a bit blue recently at the lack of progress, and general… boredom. Then I remembered the ancient Egyptians. Well, not really, but I did remember how I’ve used pyramid sets in the past to push past little plateaus like this. There are various […]

It wasn’t that long ago (may be late 2012?) that I typed ‘PALEO’ into my browser to see what explanation Google could find me. I found myself nodding at the concept, as much of what was core to the movement/lifestyle/diet was also congruent to my own way of thinking. For one, I loved bringing back human behaviours to our ancestors, and how we’re biologically wired. So looking to our ancestors […]

I’m all giddy… my birthday is around the corner! Tomorrow, in fact. Is it just me or are there a boat-load of April-baby-bloggers? We’re clearly born to do this I’m planning on dragging it out as much as possible – commencing last Friday for a classy afternoon tea, followed by a few too many drinks. Tomorrow night I’ll be dining with some of my favourite people at my favourite steakhouse in […]

Last week I covered some of the discoveries I’ve made about what healthy living means to me, and what I now know (and wish I had known earlier). There are so many that I thought it best to split into two separate posts. I loved reading that so many others have experienced the same turnaround in their ‘health journey’ (a phrase I think sounds appropriate but cheesy, let’s go with […]

I’ve written a lot about flexibility recently – not physical (I have yoga for that), but mental flexibility. I think for someone who is so type-A, like myself, this is an important skill I like to – um, flex. This week had me realising I was also getting better at compromising. Whether it’s compromising in a relationship, with work colleagues, or with yourself; being able to find the middle-ground is […]

So in 5 days I will be turning the ripe old age of 26. Enter: my late 20′s… One thing that definitely shows my… maturity… is my approach to birthday gifts. Clothes, make-up, jewellery… These things aren’t on my radar this year. Don’t get me wrong, I still love receiving these things, but if I look at my Amazon ‘Wish List’, most of what I see are things related to […]
