Labels: the good, the bad and the ugly

I hate labels with a vengeance. Why do people have to be categorized and put into boxes? We are all individuals with unique qualities. One size certainly does not fit all. I am who I am, not a clone, lookalike or doppelganger. Call me by […]

‘New Year, New You’

‘New Year, New You’

I entered an Instagram competition last week. You know, one of those ones that you post something on your story, and it counts as an entry. My hairdresser was doing it along with a handful of other small businesses in the area. You could win […]

Happy New Year

Happy New Year

This is my first blog in December and I’m really excited because it’s my favourite month! I apologise in advance if all this month’s blogs are Christmas-themed. Let’s kick it off with some Christmas shopping ideas! I’m usually not the most organised person when it […]

My experience at the BBC Good Food Show

My experience at the BBC Good Food Show

On Saturday I went to the BBC Good Food Show. I booked ages before when my classmate spoke to me about the show when we were thinking about a presentation for the Public Health assignment. We were trying to figure out how to convince people […]

Missing my land, Sardinia

Missing my land, Sardinia

I am Italian, from a beautiful island whose name is Sardinia, and for one or another reason, I haven’t been able to go home for two years. Today I have been looking for a particular song in Sardinian. This piece gives me goosebumps, and I […]

Some words of advice

Some words of advice

Do you get fed up and roll your eyes when an older relative or family friend spouts some saying or well-meaning words of wisdom in an effort to give you some advice? Have you heard it all before? Well perhaps you shouldn’t be so quick […]
