“We are the first generation to feel the impact of climate change, and the last generation that can do something about it.”

Younger

So thanks to Claudia, we are both officially addicted to ‘Younger‘. ‘Younger’ is the perfect modern day TV-show for every girl in their 20s; iPhones, memes, affairs, Tinder, Goodreads, careers, love and tattoos. Plus, if you watched Lizzy McGuire growing up, just like Claudia and I, you’ll love seeing Hilary Duff back in action. Watch the…

Guiding Light

Well the road is wide, And waters run on either side, And my shadow went with fading light, Stretching out towards the night. ‘Cause the Sun is low, And I yet have still so far to go, My lonely heart is beating so, Tired of the wonder. But there’s a sign ahead, Though I think…

The Slow Walk

“There are so many ways to be brave in this world. Sometimes bravery involves laying down your life for something bigger than yourself, or for someone else. Sometimes it involves giving up everything you have ever known, or everyone you have ever loved, for the sake of something greater. But sometimes it doesn’t. Sometimes it…

As Human As to Breathe

“…There is never a perfect answer in this messy, emotional world. Perfection is beyond the reach of humankind, beyond the reach of magic. In every shining moment of happiness is that drop of poison: the knowledge that pain will come again. Be honest to those you love, show your pain. To suffer is as human…

I loved it with my whole heart

“Home. This was familiar. This was good. This was what I’d known my whole life. It didn’t mean it would always be my final destination, just that when I was here, I loved it with my whole heart.” – Audrey Carlan

A Love Quote 

“Only once in your life, I truly believe, you find someone who can completely turn your world around. You tell them things that you’ve never shared with another soul and they absorb everything you say and actually want to hear more.

The early bird catches the worm

“The early bird catches the worm. A stitch in time saves nine. He who hesitates is lost. We can’t pretend we haven’t been told. We’ve all heard the proverbs, heard the philosophers, heard our grandparents warning us about wasted time, heard the damn poets urging us to seize the day. Still, sometimes, we have to…

It was a comet.

“It was a comet. The boy saw the comet and he felt as though his life had meaning. And when it went away, he waited his entire life for it to come back to him. It was more than just a comet because of what it brought to his life: direction, beauty, meaning. There are…

Those Stars Will Lead You Home

“I’ve come to the conclusion that if having things turn out the way you wanted them to is a measure of a successful life, then some would say I’m a failure. The important thing is not to be bitter over life’s disappointments. Learn to let go of the past. And recognize that every day won’t…

Then, She Began to Breathe

“Then, she began to breathe, and live, and every moment took her to a place where goodbyes were hard to come by. She was in love, by not with someone or something, she was in love with her life. And for the first time, in a long time, everything was inspiring.” – R.M. Drake

Make someones day

I think that you’ll find the small things, mean more to people than you’ll ever know. The smile you give to strangers as you cross paths in life; when you ask how they are; that “well done”. Sometimes, we all just need that gentle reminder to remember how we treat others. Humans are designed to…

Peace

Finding Daily Joy

“And so taking the long way home through the market I slow my pace down. It doesn’t come naturally. My legs are programmed to trot briskly and my arms to pump up and down like pistons, but I force myself to stroll past the stalls and pavement cafes. To enjoy just being somewhere, rather than…

My Favourite Body Shop Products

A Beautician once told me that it is important to use products that are close to being 100% natural. It makes sense though, doesn’t it? Every day we put moisturizers, makeup and lotions onto our skin, which depending on the product, can be full of chemicals; layers and layers of chemicals are lathered onto our…

Why You Should Be Kind to Everyone You Meet

“The greatest disease in the West today is not TB or leprosy; it is being unwanted, unloved, and uncared for.
