    The Food Diaries // 022

    I’ll be honest – coming back to blogging after an unofficial hiatus is scarier than I imagined it to be. I keep wondering if people still read this and then remember why I started blogging in the first place – it isn’t for the likes, comments or shares (although, those are nice, admittedly) but rather because I love to write and I love to write about my passions – the main one being food. We’re currently in a national lockdown here in London which means that everything is shut down – restaurant, pubs, cafes – and they can only do takeaway/delivery. This is our third official lockdown and I’ll be…

    2020 Reflection

    Describe 2020 in 3 words The lost year. What were your happiest moments? I did a rundown on my Instagram of my 2020 highlights because despite it being a shit year, there were some good points: Releasing my first eBook, Dear Alopecia Spending time with my family in the Philippines in Jan Moving to my own place What new skills did you learn? Does working from home count as one? I previously had only worked from home a couple of times, but now do it full time until we are able to go back into the office (who knows when?) and wow. Seeing as I primarily work with computers anyway,…

    Dear Alopecia

    Dear Alopecia is a book of letters curated with love by Chynna Webley with the intention of spreading awareness of alopecia. Alopecia is a condition in which hair is lost from some or all areas of the body. With the help of fellow Alopecians, Chynna brings to light the journey that people who have alopecia go through giving them a voice for the world to hear.

    Interview with a Fellow Foodie // 02

    I reached out to Nancy of exquisitely.me quite a while back about my new foodie series, and got a wonderful interview out of her! As a fellow foodie, I was excited to see what she had for me and she did not disappoint. Every time I visit her blog, she always has the most amazing food photos and they make me hungry every time ? I usually hate when people ask me this question and basically tell them to eff off, mainly because it’s such a hard question! But I’m gonna ask you anyway – what’s your favourite dish/cuisine? With Los Angeles being so diverse with its food options, this…

    Alopecia Awareness Month

    Do you ever wake up in the morning and instantly feel sad? Knowing that you don’t have hair can have that effect on you. Sometimes, you can wake up feeling like badass b and sometimes you wake up feeling like the whole world is shit and nothing is ever right in the world. September is Alopecia Awareness Month, so I just wanted to write a quick post. Two years ago I wrote a post about my journey with alopecia but haven’t really written about it since. I have been more open about it on Instagram and the support has been so amazing. Admittedly, it has taken a mental toll on…

    What’s On My Netflix? // 02

    Whew! It’s been a while. Between having a sh*t time at work, sore throats and just general laziness, I have yet again neglected this blog. This year started off well, but I unexpectedly took some time off – perhaps it’s what I subconsciously needed before I started pushing out content that wasn’t that great. Anyway, I’ve been watching a lot on Netflix recently and thought I’d share some of the things I’ve been watching. Jane the Virgin Gina Rodriguez is hella problematic in real life (see here), but Jane the Virgin has always had a place in my heart and I’ve continued watching it for her character and not for…

    Interview with a Fellow Foodie // 01

    When I was coming up with my blogging plan for the year, I decided I wanted to start a new series in relation to food. I thought it’d be a fun idea to reach out to a few of my foodie friends and interview them! The first interview in the series is with the lovely Tara of aigoo.me. I was fortunate enough to meet and hang out with Tara when she visited London back in March. With a shared love of food, it was seemed silly for me not to reach out to her and ask her a couple of questions! I saw that you tried making your own bread…

    My Bullet Journal Journey

    I’ve been wanting to write about my bullet journal journey for a while, but I thought let me wait a bit so I have enough pages to show you guys. A lot of it is just winging it because I didn’t have a set way I wanted my journal to be when I first started. I still don’t and every week I choose to change my weekly layout, which has been a lot of fun!

    Life Lately 7

    I think I’ll be doing a Life Lately every month as my monthly roundup because they’re a fun way for me to go over highlights of the last month or so! This one will be slightly longer than usual because I missed out on posting last week, so bear with me. Also, there are a lot of photos in this one and I bang on about food a lot – nothing new there, to be honest. In very exciting news, I met up with Tara when she came to London and it was so much fun. She is such a sweetheart and even brought me loads of snacks from South…
