The Beekeeper of Aleppo teaches us a very simple lesson, life can change at any given moment but it is the choices that you make which define where you go from there.
It gently, but quite obviously, gives the pregnant silence we all experience in our daily lives a set of subtitles. For all the unsaid feelings, the unimaginable circumstances, and the ways women have come undone at the seams, this book takes us deep into the American South and attempts to (and succeeds in) reminding us that despite our many differences, we all suffer at the same oppressive hands.

Sometimes a teacher, sometimes a student, but mostly caffeinated. This blog is a terrible attempt at writing out my thoughts - think of it as the 'comments, complaints, and suggestions' section of my brain. Nevertheless, I hope that some of these words will find a place in your heart and will stay with you even when I do not. If you'd like to get in touch, send me a message on Instagram or leave a comment on one of these posts and I'll get back to you at the best possible time.

An Ode to 2020

As a community, we've suffered more loss in the last year than we might have ever done in our collective lifetimes and I'm gonna be honest with you all, it's left us a little scarred, hasn't it? A little stripped of our defences and a shell of our most vulnerable selves.

Mindfulness Cards

Grounding and mindfulness exercises are key to our wellbeing and yet, they're things we prefer to use as buzzwords rather than a part of our daily life. Here are some ways we can start implementing them in our lives.
