Veggie Mama and the Terrible, Horrible, No-Good, Very Bad Day

The other day I woke up, a new day in a string of some really rather shitty days. I don’t know what the deal was, Mercury Retrograde was already over (thank fuck), I wasn’t hormonal (I don’t think?)… I dunno, maybe it was the full moon or something. Either way, I woke up early and was NOT HAPPY JAN. Usually if I wake up early I meditate and TRY to either go for a walk or do some yoga. This morning I just flopped around in bed feeling miserable af and not wanting to get up and do stuff. At all. Everything felt dreadful and I was over it before the day had already begun. I dragged myself out of bed…

Vegan Raspberry Muffins

So a while ago I was listening to a podcast, which made me watch YouTube videos, then I fell down a vegan cooking YouTube rabbit hole (its easier than you think) and found myself watching rapper Wacka Flocka Flame and his mate Raury making vegan blueberry muffins.

That picture up there…

Stuff I Love Sunday

Hi. I’ve spent most of this day (nay, most of this week) with a nit comb in my hand. Why won’t they die? WHY?!! Apart from that, the weekend has been awesome for resting and recovering after a full-on few weeks. I was out three nights last week as well as working almost non-stop, so by the time Saturday morning…

Conversations with Carlo

You see all kinds of people in my inner-city Melbourne street, but my favourite is the elderly Italian guy a few doors down who is always at his rose-filled front gate with a cheery wave and a “ciao, bella!” for me as I pass by. I’m usually in a hurry – as are all of us. I’m headed to kinder…

Stuff I Love Sunday

This post contains affiliate links. On a Monday! Because yesterday was Mother’s Day and I most definitely was not touching a laptop. Reads I cracked open “Art of Mindful Walking: Meditations on the Path“, with a nice hot cup of tea in bed yesterday, it was one of the wonderful gifts my crew had given me for Mother’s Day. I…
