caboodle magazine illustration by laura redburn

a little while ago, i had the pleasure of contributing to caboodle magazine again. if you remember, i had done so before in their 4th issue. this time it was illustrating an article about men (more specifically justin bieber) judging women who love themselves more than them. self love and being happy in yourself is such a big and important thing. it’s not easy and it takes lhard work. there are definitely men out there that want women to be ‘theirs’ and that’s not the behaviour of someone that respects you.

i’m sure i had something interesting or of some importance to say, but my mind is like a sieve today so who knows what else i’ve forgotten? it’s hard recalling your week when you can’t even think back to a few hours earlier. whoops. hopefully some sleep will help.

i’ve written here before about how important i feel it is to take time out from your day – in whataver way you want, to relax, have fun, or generally take a little time to do some forward planning to save from future stress. some days we can all be good at it, and other times you feel like you’re non stop busy from the moment you wake. it’s good to keep yourself occupied and to feel like you have some purpose in life, but what is the point if you don’t take a little time to enjoy yourself, or to just relax for a bit?

well, a thing that is very very special in my life, and is actually a core part of keeping me calm and helping me to take a few minutes here and there to just ‘be’ is my lovely, cheeky little cat, ava. since being a kitten she has been an energetic and mischievous little thing, and now that she’s 6, she’s still the same …but definitely a bit more chill.

doisy and dam chocolate | organic milk chocolate

if you read my post a while ago about my diagnosis and experience of coeliac disease, you might remember that i wanted to feature some gluten-free brands (and ones that aren’t specifically gluten free but have products safe for coeliacs). well, the time has finally come!

to be upfront, these, for the time being, are going to be pretty simple reviews. i would love to perhaps do some recipes or something a bit more involving but for now i kind of just wanted to get started with something i knew i could do. to tie it into the feel of my blog, i do place a slight preference on products with well designed or interesting packaging – but if i’ve heard something is good and just want to try regardless ..obviously that will take precedence!
