The Ocean for Women’s Empowerment

Abay Girls Surf Club & SeaSisters Sri Lanka Whilst I was in Sri Lanka I volunteered and photographed for a day at a surf and swimming lesson for local women and girls run by SeaSisters in Weligama. I’d heard about the Abay Girls Surf Club and was in awe of the women who were pushing…

A Different Kind Of Christmas

“Do your research. Read labels. Buy less. Buy local. And support brands that care.” Christmas is coming, we’re in the countdown stage and already some enthusiastic neighbors have excessive neon lights and decorations blinding you from their sitting room windows. ‘Tis the season to be jolly (although slightly annoying). Christmas is less than 4 weeks…

Get The Boys A Lift

I recently wrote an article for a local newspaper called The Western Telegraph about Get The Boys A Lift, a not for profit organization based here in Pembrokeshire helping local and national mental health organizations (and if you haven’t already heard of them, where have you been?!)   The organization was set up in 2016…

How do you measure success?

It’s funny how the more and more I talk to different people about success, the more I dislike the word and wonder how this “thing” can be categorized at all. Success is COMPLETELY different to each and every one of us. Take a minute to think about it. What comes to mind when you hear…

Island Hopping in Indonesia

So with plans to go from Komodo to Flores and back, we didn’t quite make it all that way unfortunately. It’s a hard realisation when you find you’re running out of time in a country that needs sooo much of it to explore. But yes, our time was running low (and our money even lower…)…

Self Love Club

Hello from Sri Lanka (and a bandaged together Ellie) 👋🏼 I’ve been travelling for 3 months now and mostly it’s been pretty much plain sailing. Yes we’ve had ups and downs, things haven’t happened as we’d planned and we’ve had to miss out or not do things that we thought. There’s been the occasional missed…

Singapore: can you fall in love with a city?

Said to be “The cleanest city in the world,” Singapore is definitely a good contender for this title. Landing in Singapore felt like a completely different world to the tiny Thai airport we’d just left. Everything was so BIG and so clean. The first thing we did was grab a tourist MRT (underground/metro) card and…

Eco-Friendly SWIMWEAR

I try to make conscious choices about everything I buy, including clothing (I wrote a little about this in my post Stories Behind Things) I’ve recently been packing for a trip away to warmer climates, hence buying swimwear in winter, but I also found out – LIFE HACK  – buying summer clothing in winter is actually…

North Thailand – Wats & Waterfalls

Chiang Mai – I absolutely love this city. As soon as we arrived we were met with such a chilled out friendly atmosphere that all of our stresses (having to run through the airport and making it to our connecting flight by ONE MINUTE) melted away. We stayed in a little guesthouse in the old…

Business Worth Knowing – FOOD

Project Jackfruit Jackfruit? What the hell is that? After graduating from Falmouth University, Abi and Jordan left jobs in London and became the duo behind Project Jackfruit, with a mission to make a difference. Jackfruit is, yes, a fruit, but is actually a perfect and convenient plant based alternative to meat. It looks and tastes…
