Cycling in Autumn

I just wanted to add this post as an excuse to share my love for nature at this time of year. I might be coming off as Autumn cray-cray right now but I seriously cannot get over this! I come from a place where it's Summer all year round and until 4 years ago, I [...]


Vulnerable Colours

Your branches reach the sky and your changes blind my eyes orange, yellow, red,  all I want to do is get out of my nest admiring your falling beauties  makes me rush through your trees.  The sky might cry to see you bare, and the winds wail to see you weak but my eyes only see the [...]

The Importance of the Awareness of Education

I just wanted to take a minute and write something that has bothered me for a while. Taking education seriously. Is it such a bad thing? I have always been the one in my group of friends to put education at first priority. It might be because of my upbringing since my parents always made [...]

Autumn Decor

Well hello! It's just another day in the lovely season of Autumn.. Is it just me or am I the only one who gets urged to clean and tidy up everything in my studio apartment? I could be lying in my pig-stein of a dump all week(s) but the minute I make plans with someone [...]

Squash Potato Soup

Well hello there! It's yet another Autumn-y soup post! This time I was feeling rebellious and opted for a butternut squash instead of my usual orange pumpkin. It's safe to say I do not regret that choice. Having a friend over for dinner put all the more pressure on my shoulders. I mean, what if [...]

When Life Spins Out of Control

When you don't know what to do because you can't even remember what's right and what's left? Life's struggles aren't unfamiliar to anyone (except for babies) but at one point you feel as if [...]

Pumpkin Spiced Pancakes with a Big Hint of Apples

Can we please talk about what a huge difference a little fruit and some seasoning can make to simple old pancakes? Adding pumpkin pie spice to an ordinary dish makes it somehow extraordinary. It might be because of the falling leaves and the colours that they give off. I might be deemed as one of [...]

Late Evening Baking Time – Banana Oreo Chocolate Chip Brownies

Okay I did it again! So it all started off with an early dinner because I was starving by the time I'd gotten back from the university where I was steadfastly working on my essay on Shakespeare's As you like it and Beaumont's The Knight of the Burning Pestle. Yes so early dinner equals getting hungry later [...]

Curried Pumpkin Lentil Soup

Since the past couple of weeks I've pushed smoothies and salads aside and opted for a more heart-and-stomach warming option. I've been buying more pumpkins from the market lately and I'm absolutely loving it! The market is a place where vegetables and fruits look healthier and are definitely much more affordable! Lately I've been experimenting [...]
