positivity, because you’re worth it!

It’s been a kind of a busy season including the most recent piece in my health and wellbeing puzzle which involved a welcome shot of positivity… and an overnight stay in den Haag last month. Most if not all the posts in this blog from the last year and more, address something in life which can be adapted or adjusted to make our life a little bit better. Life hacks? Hardly, as I lack the dedication to attach scientific rigour to...

Gorgeous gluten free brownies

After speaking to a number of people I feel assured that the batch of dairy and gluten free ginger brownies made recently is worth sharing.

Chasing Wellness

Hope you had a good few days of enjoying friends and family’s company and perhaps definitely (for me, anyway) eating more than we normally would. I posted on christmas day the next post would be listing ways we could help ourselves through appropriate eating, moving, sleeping and being still. I’ve put these 4 aspects of our lives in the venn diagram on this site’s front page as I truly believe when we get them right...
