Winds of Change

One thing that people in a position of power need to understand is that their words and actions have much greater consequences especially in a world with social media.

Best Butternut Squash Soup Ever

This is by no means an exaggeration but it has to be said that this is the best butternut squash soup ever because not once have I made this has it survived the next day, or maybe I just don’t make enough. The sweet, caramalised, nutty flavour of butternut when roasted blended with coconut milk…

Glamping in the Yard

Since we couldn’t go on holiday we brought the holiday to us, sort of, by getting reacquainted with the great outdoors in our very own backyard without forgoing any creature comforts.

Although we have our own garden in times like these it’s great knowing someone with a farm because social distancing works every well with acres and acres of land as it’s mostly flowers,…

Quick Meeting at Le Elementos

For the first time in three weeks, I went out to get food supplies and for a quick meeting at Le Elementos Hotel. The moment you walk in you are given hand sanitizer but as you would expect with what’s going on worldwide things were pretty quiet there with just a handful of people sitting…

Sharing some food swaps that I make for those everyday eats because the most common question I get regarding not having dairy is, how…

Fashion: Self Isolation Style
