I’ve come to truly enjoy dining solo. There’s something out-of-the-ordinary and adventurous about it. It’s just you, your food, and an endless spectrum of sensations. When I was much younger I used to feel sorry for myself when I did things alone. “Waaaaa! I have no friends!” bawled my ego. (Our ego is usually full of ...

I consider home birth to be my greatest achievement. It was a beautiful birth for Baby Magnifique, but I, too, was born that day as a mother, as was my partner, as Louis’ father. Six weeks on, we still look back joyfully on that powerful event, feeling blessed to have begun our family life in such a ...

Sometimes I freak-out. Life as an eco-conscious vegan can be… Hard. Not only is there just a mess of animal products in almost every “eating” establishment here in Paris, but also, I can’t just “go shoe shopping” because… All dem shoes are made of cow.

The inspiration for these delectable bites of goodness came when I was exploring my parents’ beautiful seaside town in Devon, England. On a walk with my little nieces, we stumbled upon a lovely little café called Lollie Bean. Which – joy of joys – sold homemade vegan energy balls. They were absolutely delicious and a real life ...

I waved at him, and showed him proudly what I was reading, and then almost immediately following his approving nod, I convinced him ...

It really is quite an idyllic scene – I’m sitting working in front of a beautiful view of the French countryside (below), lulled by the sounds of the breeze in the cherry trees and the rain pitter-pattering on stones and grass. A gorgeous smell of damp earth is wafting in, and I have a steaming mug of rooibos by my ...

I’ve been taking advantage of the great outdoors while in Seattle. Mountaineering (sort of), bird watching, and general frolicking in nature. It’s been my saving grace as I pore through the bounteous boxes of my childhood, attempting to further Marie Kondo my life. Taking breaks from chucking plastic toys and stuffed animals into Goodwill bags, to commune ...

In the grand scheme of things, whether or not you bring your own superfood trail mix on your next plane trip may not matter as much as we think it does. (Thinking deep thoughts today.) I mean… my best friend just created the most magnificent human ever from nothing — human cells and stardust — which just ...
