Five TED Talks by Inspiring Women

As I mentioned in this week’s vlog, I’m starting a series on my YouTube channel celebrating women working within the creative industries. Over the past couple of weeks I’ve been scouring the internet for inspiration and after my friend Kelly recommended, I started looking into a lady aptly named Jude Kelly, which led me down a rabbit hole of inspirational women speakers. I wanted to share my favourites with you in this morning’s post as there are pieces of advice that have resonated with me from the speeches below that I thought might appeal to your lives too. I’m always one for sharing knowledge and empowering others and feel like these 5 TED talks do exactly that.

Ever taken yourself out on a date?

Last week I did something I’ve never done before; I took myself out to lunch. This might not sound like a big thing, but as I sat in Wagamama’s ordering my usual ramen (instead of picking up a takeaway) I realised I’d never sat alone in a restaurant before.

I started to question why I’d created such a

Sunday Morning Pancakes

Let’s be realistic, I say these are Sunday morning pancakes, but at the moment I’m eating them about 3 times a week! If you’ve got a Nutri-bullet/food processor you’re winning, if you haven’t; I used to make these up in a bowl and use a fork to mush up the ingredients. Though they’re not as smooth, they still taste just as good! Take a a look at the super easy recipe below!

Home Comforts

Over the past two years I’ve visited the airport more times than I’d like to count. I’m always filled with that new trip anticipation, but there’s always an element of the unknown, even if you’ve planned the adventure to the very last detail. Landing back on home ground is a whole different story; as soon as my feet walk off that airplane I’m comforted by the unpredictable grey weather that greets me and the promise of a great cup of tea. This post is in collaboration with Heathrow Airport; they are celebrating what Britishness means to you and conducted an anthropological study on what ‘Modern Britain’ means in 2018. We live in such a diverse multicultural country, and Heathrow Airport is a microcosm of people from different cultures and backgrounds which all add to that contemporary sense of Britishness.

Desert Diaries- LA to Joshua Tree

Ever since my first visit to Joshua Tree, it’s always been one of my favourite places to travel to. When Steve and I originally visited back in 2015, I remember entering the park and almost wondering what all the fuss was about? There were these weird looking trees combined with a super sparse landscape and you would think there was nothing much to see when you drove through. But when the sun set across the sparse landscape, it became a magical place filled with warmth and colour; where the long shadows of the Joshua Trees danced on the desert floor.

When the opportunity to visit came up on our last trip, we jumped at the chance! With only 48 hours until we had to be back in LA, we started embarked upon a whistle stop tour!

I thought I’d take you through some of the places we to visited which would definitely make the most out of a short trip to the desert!

What 2017 taught me

Happy New Year everyone!

This post has taken me a while to write; it started up as a round-up of 2017, but after realising that I’d shared most of the good bits with you guys already, I thought I’d go for a different angle for the first post of the year! I learnt a great deal about myself in 2017, it was my first full year of being self-employed and through a lot of trial and error; I feel like I’ve started to figure out where I want to be in 2018.

Things I’ve learnt-

Work Life Essentials- What’s in my bag?

My first year of self employment has taught me so many lessons, and it always amazes me that I could be working from a coffee shop in London one week and then from an air bnb in LA the next. Travelling in any form whether for work or for a holiday used to fill me with a sense of anxiety, but this fast paced unpredictable profession has taught me the art of being flexible, open minded, but most of all, to be prepared for anything that comes along.

One of the ways I’ve helped reduce any anxious feelings is to compartmentalise all the items that enable me to do my job into one place. This preparedness then enables me to capture the content I want to create wherever I am in the world.

Instagram – We Need to Talk

Instagram used to be one of my favourite apps. I was constantly inspired by my feed and, by all of the amazing content that appeared from the people I followed.

Recently I feel Instagram has changed and I’ve noticed my feed is inundated by more unattainable images of amazing travels, bodies, backdrops and gone are the days of sharing your morning coffee.
