All the stuff. EDC for a typical work day.

I used to be the person who carried everything with them in a large tote or backpack. I always made sure I was ready for a variety of occasions. Water, umbrella, pens, laptop, notebooks, camera, first aid kit, makeup bag, etc... you name it, I...

Domestic goddessery.

I have discovered a completely new side of me. The "domestic goddess". But I use this term loosely. Very loosely. Growing up, I used to hate cleaning. Crockery in the sink, hair on the floor, etc (gross right?)... I guess I got by because there...

Where to go? Attractions in Porto.

Porto is such a huge city and like all cities of its size, there are tons of things to see and do. You could spend 2 weeks there and yet fail to explore every nook and cranny of what this lovely city has to offer. I haven't explored it...

Start the day right.

At the turn of the year, I realised that I needed to re-examine the way I begin my day. I’m a chronic snoozer. That is, without fail, I tend to hit the snooze button and say to myself “just 5 more minutes”. The problem with doing that is that a)...

It's been a while since I wrote about anything beauty-related. I haven't had time, money nor the inclination to try anything new and somehow I had fallen off the bandwagon of beauty blogging since, really... I am not one of those girls (nothing...

Adapting to foreign cultures during travel.

Every time I visit a different country (not as often as this phrase would have you believe), I love to experience what its local culture has to offer. Beyond the touristy facade, there lies a grittiness or a less-than-romantic perspective to each country that isn't...

Creating daily.

  I've always pegged myself to be a creative person. While it is a tad ironic that I majored in the sciences for a good part of my younger years, I have since discovered that writing and art give me way more joy than crunching numbers and scientific...

A girl can dream – my travel wishlist for 2018.

  Now that 2018 has begun, it's time to think about the different places I could potentially explore within the next 12 months. Mind you, it is a wishlist and it would be nigh impossible to visit all these places given the budget and leave constraints. But dreaming is...
