They say that admitting you have a problem is an integral part of healing your addiction. So, here it goes … I’m Emily and I’m a podcast-a-holic. Total sluz for the podcasts. Absolutely cannot get enough. Would pod all day, every day, if I could. Podcasts have exploded into our world over the past few […]

Blessed Bookshelf – This Year’s Top Contenders [SO FAR]

Brooklyn Art Library

// TEXT BOOK ROMANCE // Purchased on a whim after a girlfriend had recommended it and had suggested it might be an interesting read for this single pringle. My biggest girl crush and all around sparkly dose of girl powered inspiration [Zoë Foster Blake] wrote a book about romancing in the modern era. Sounds simples. […]

// excepts from a South American travel diary //

[I recently discovered the tattered little journal that I carted around South America with me in 2016 – and the memories, a year on, are still as joy//happiness//heart bust inducing as they were when they were scribbled down. So what better way to upkeep the ‘travel’ portion of the blog (whilst my current travel plans […]

ADVENTURES OF A GREEN KITCHEN

thumb_IMG_0186_1024

If you have any sort of specific requirements within the realm of your food and diet – whether it be due to intolerances, religious or ethically governed food choices, sensory aversions, etc – meal prep and cooking may be met with a lot of stress and anxiety. But it certainly doesn’t have to be. There are […]

REFLECTIONS ON THE POWER [AND GIFT] OF TRAVEL

thumb_12961464_10154837321022699_488507404554014601_n_1024

A year today, I was wracked with nerves, terrified of the stretch of unknown terrain that lay before me and I lugged a 14kg bag onto a big, steel Emirates bird and trusted. I trusted that the little voice in my heart that had whispered ‘South America‘ since 2010 was lovingly leading me to wherever […]

QUANTUM MOMENTS and A LIFE WELL LIVED

QUANTUM MOMENTS and A LIFE WELL LIVED

Today’s post is the amalgamation of two seemingly separate trains of thought // epiphanies // recent realisations that I soon came to realise weren’t actually all that distinctive or different of concepts to not be shoved in the same post. So here we are. If you are ridiculously time poor and want the condensed and […]

THE UNAPOLOGETIC EXPRESSION OF SELF

f395a17cc157c7e1c6985d59d741f530

It seems like a no brainer. We have been told since we were knee high to a grasshopper – ‘just be yourself‘. But it kind of always seemed to follow up with a ‘oh but not like that!‘. We have been tiptoeing this fine line of authentic self expression, and acceptable member of society. Acceptable […]

SISTERS (ARE DOIN’ IT FOR THEMSELVES)

For someone who loves words so very much, they sure haven’t loved her so much back as of late. It’s almost as if we are allotted a certain number of words to use and express and curate – and once we hit that quota, we done. My word budget has been used entirely in erryday […]

RECIPE FOR A SPIRITUAL SHIT STORM

e33524231eb16ac5e17ac698717e3512

I ain’t a guru. I don’t have a recipe for happiness, or love, or contentment, or adventure – I kind of believe it’s up to us to have a play around our own kitchens for those ones. But what I have learned lately, rather unintentionally, is a recipe for discontent, ickiness and disconnection. This is […]

SHARING THE LOVE – SARAH HARVEY’S MAGICAL PROSE

1

Sarah mother flippin’ Harvey. A goddess of prose. A wordsmith like no other. Her lyrical whimsy is so powerful and always seems to find me when I need. You may recall I shared her incredible words a while back in 2015 – have a looksie if you’re keen – and rather serendipidously her words have […]
