This whole ’sustainable’ thing gradually seeps into the rest of your life. Once you delve into one area, you can’t seem to stop. You start to question everything: Why is there plastic packaging there? Where does it end up? Can I find a way to go without? Every product you put in and on your… Continue reading thoughtful living made easy.
Home is where I sit in the light, early morning on a Saturday before the rest of the world decides to wake and disturb. I gaze out the window and watch as the trees sway gradually, back and forth - almost convincing of a rural life until the oversized crane comes into focus. I hear… Continue reading what’s in a home?
I’ve sorely missed reading masses of articles lately, somehow time just keeps getting the better of me. That and Netflix, I suppose. It’s the middle of the year and it’s time to hit refresh. Pause for a minute to take a look back at the early 2017 hopes and dreams, take stock, and make a… Continue reading important articles :: issue iv.
This piece was written for The Ladies Network. Periods. They are a bloody inconvenience, aren’t they? Sorry. We spend so long as young girls growing up, waiting, wishing, for that day we would dash to the toilet and see that faint little mark lining our underwear: the apparent “beginning of womanhood”; the “rose-petal stain” so… Continue reading the menstrual cup: a lesson in appreciating my own experience of womanhood.
I hesitate to say that I struggle from writer’s block, as I find it difficult to define myself as a “writer” (although what I actually am is undefined also). Putting pen to paper, aka fingertip to keyboard, is much more difficult than I envision at times. Like right now. Like the past month. Like trying to… Continue reading the sunday cure.
As much as I dream of the freelance life ( when we decipher what work that would actually mean for me ), I’m coming to doubt my abilities in concentration and motivation that are necessary for this work choice. When a free day is sprung on me with no plans, and no intention of making any, I… Continue reading finding my productive space.
( This is as far as my shocking poetry skills go - you will hear no more after this, promise ). I wish I could make up my mind. I wish I could do everything. I wish I could be busy. I wish I could be peaceful. I wish I could move away from the… Continue reading i wish :: a start to the year.
While the rest of the world has been lamenting the year that was 2016, I have been quietly sitting back. The kid in the corner. Yes, the earth is falling apart - real shit has happened this year - but can we actually expect it to be better in the next? I'm not promoting a… Continue reading reflecting on the year that was.
You didn't ask for this, but I'm giving it to you anyway. A breakdown of my first mooncup experience. You either love it or hate it; become a sort of preacher or naysayer. This may be one of the most divisive little implements of the year between women of all-sorts. Initially, the hippie image really… Continue reading the mooncup trial.
I always find it difficult to settle back in to normal life after time away, especially when that time is spent in an opposite part of the world. Life experiences rarely reflect my own and living conditions differ vastly. But the craziest thing I find is that everyone I meet has a genuine heart, a… Continue reading coming home.
