Welcome, I'm so happy to have you here!

Imagine yourself in a room with glowing candles, peaceful music playing, and a welcoming embrace accepting you as you are. There is a lot to share with you. I tend to share what is on my mind through pages and pages of words. But most importantly, I want you to feel free to share in the conversation. My love language is quality time, and I want you to feel like I am giving you all the time in the world, and those conversations will continue to flow for years to come.

I have been sharing my thoughts through my writing for over 10 years now and somehow, I still manage to feel like the conversation can keep flowing. And since I tend to write more than the little captions Instagram has allowed I've kept this space alive - because sometimes writing is the best way to tell the world how you feel.

Within these pages, you'll find travel stories, moments with my family, updates on my novel, and anything else I might find inspiring.

Please, come and sit down on a plush sofa and enjoy a cup of tea with me. You are welcome here.

Curiosity leads her on grand adventures

Nice to meet you

Life has a funny way of bringing you full circle doesn't it? When I started blogging not very many people even knew what it was but I would share my thoughts with the world even if only 2 people were reading. It was my little garden on the internet and it felt like home. My blog has taken many shapes and forms over the years and it can be embarrassing to go back to see the naive gardener planting her thoughts in the tainted soil, but those days of learning how to write helped shape who I am today.

My garden has been pristine with blooming roses and walks along flowerbeds bursting with colour visited by thousands of readers from around the world, featured in magazines, and received calls from Vogue and Cosmopolitan.

It has also been left to grow wild and let the words just be with no one to notice their growth or that they have withered away into the shadows.

Yet one thing blogging has done for me is allowed me to document my life. 

And for that, I will be forever grateful.

Life can slip through our fingers like tiny grains of sand, and no matter how hard we try and hold onto a moment it passes by and gathers with all the thousands of other moments in our life. So instead of putting my blog aside when others are saying blogs are dead and no one is reading them, I continue to write. When I can and when I am inspired to.

I want to capture life and all the beautiful moments that gather like sands of time and continue to nurture my little garden on the internet because I want to be able to look back and know that not only did I live, but I lived well, that I loved and was loved.

My Work

Writing sparks my joy

Writing has always been an outlet for me. From childhood diary entries to heart pouring journal entries in my teens and then playing with the idea, that one day I would really like to write a novel. I then discovered the world of blogging in my early twenties. I longed for those moments to be able to sit down and write what was on my heart.

When sticky ebony ink changed to the click clack of keyboard keys the thoughts became more mature and my words more eloquent. I have finished my first novel, my thoughts have been published on online magazines, and my heart still gets to be shared with the world.
