5 things nobody really tells you about adulting

Now I know this, but when I first ‘flew the nest’ I had no idea that I was a sheltered little snowflake. Although I did receive a decent amount of prep and life skills for what adulting might entail from my parents, teachers and a bunch of miscellaneous adults, there was a whole boatload of stuff I had no idea about. Let me tell you … Continue reading 5 things nobody really tells you about adulting

I wrote a little cookbook. It’s free.

Ook, that’s a bit of an overstatement. More like I gathered my favourite recipes, encountered mainly around cafes in East London into one place. I like food, you see. But I don’t like the price tag which comes with eating at trendy, hip places*. So I have now forgone eating at trendy, hip places and instead I am opting for cooking the same delicious foods … Continue reading I wrote a little cookbook. It’s free.

Easy swaps to save you money and make your home more sustainable

‘Sustainable’ is not a very exciting word, but given the choice between a tree hugger and a trash monkey, I am hugging trees.

UK and EU nationals – how not to get kicked out of the country after Brexit

A good while ago I published a video about becoming British through naturalisation. With the Brexit deadline right around the corner, there has been a lot of change in how temporary and permanent residence, the pre-requisites to becoming a British national, are changing. The topic touches me personally – not only I have members of family and friends who are living in the UK on … Continue reading UK and EU nationals – how not to get kicked out of the country after Brexit

Monthly Book Club: The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying by Marie Kondo

With the recent emergence of Netflix series, this 2011 book is on top of the reading lists again. I first spoke about it back in 2015 (this video) and frankly, my love for it has only grown since.
