Why I'm starting a blog today
Updated: Apr 20
It's been quite a journey that has brought me to where I am today, so here is my story.
It's quite surreal writing this, sitting in the living room of my mum and dads house in Newcastle. Only a few weeks ago, I was spending my days in Australia, with a great tan and a lovely helping of sunshine. My next plan was to head back to New Zealand to do another winter season. However we find ourselves in a very unique time, there is a lot of uncertainty and the options I once had, I might not have anymore.
I am defiantly not the only person affected by COVID-19, I think I am one of the lucky ones. We managed to get back to the UK safely, that can't be said for the 1000's of British people still stuck in Australia- that story is for another blog post.
I'm very grateful to have a house to come back to. I'm also grateful to every single key-worker who are out there, doing their bit to protect and help our communities, without you this time would not be possible.
So in light of these crazy times, I wanted to to spread some love and joy to as many people that I can. I want to create a community of escapism, indulgence, love and laughter through tales of adventures, lifestyle loves and delicious plant based food.
So a few weeks back, I set about designing this online community. I created a website, a business and cooked and ate a lot in the kitchen to bring you some of my favourite treats and ideas. I trawled through my note books that were filled full of ideas that I've collected from the past 6 years and started writing.
Keep an eye out for regular blogs and new ideas to come. Sending lots of love and light to you all, hoping that you are all safe and well.
