Resurrection Sunday

Last night my mom asked me what Easter means to me, and I’ve been thinking about it all day. One of my favourite things about this time of the year, (Resurrection Sunday) is the fact that a woman (Mary Magdalene) was the first to have seen Jesus.

Going back to Uni: 5 Tips for the mature student

If someone had told me that in 2020, I'd be halfway into completing a FULLY FUNDED MSc. programme, I would've slapped them in the face and said 'get behind me Satan'.

I’m on a solid reset plan that involves zero sugar and mostly veg. So far so good, BUT it’s tough. I looked… Continue reading Pregnant or Fat?

Unexpectedly Grateful

In a few weeks 2019 will be done and dusted and we will be entering a new decade. When you look back at the last ten years of your life, what marks those years?

Wonderfully Made

My sister got so many cute shots of me fake-eating ice cream 🍦 that I MUST use them all. So here we go, adding some depth to a picture that does not have much to do with the content of this post. A couple of years ago, you would have had to pay me good… Continue reading Wonderfully Made
