OK so it’s that time of year already. Crazy, I know. But my five-year-old is actually begging me to put the tree up so I’ve been thinking, as I do every year, even though it’s only November, if I don’t get my butt into gear early, I will miss the online shopping window. And it’s a legitimate fear of everyone who is striving to be a more ethical, sustainable consumer am I right? If we don’t plan ahead and put some thought into our Christmas shopping we may end up caught in the chaos of buying whatever pointless, meaningless, piece of junk we can get our hands on the week before Christmas at a soulless shopping centre where everyone is walking (read: running) around like highly anxious maniacs at one of those ridiculous all-nighter pre-Christmas shopping events. Or maybe this is just my nightmare????Read More

Ok so....I say it every year. The same old mantra. "I won't be a last minute Christmas shopper. I will be organised. I will plan in advance. I won't run around buying gifts at the last minute". And yet...most years I tend to fail miserably. BUT there have been a few years where I have tasted the sweet success of highly organised Christmas shopping victory. And trust me. It tastes good!Read More
There’s nothing quite like the feeling of weaving your way through a bustling, colourful market. Of being pulled this way and that, cajoled, sweet-talked, harassed and harangued– only to bust out your travel-savvy, hard-nosed, no-nonsense, don’t screw me over, I will bargain you down to a fair price if it kills me, all-time haggling moves. We've all been there. The problem is, when you’re elbow-deep in a market far from home, you have no way of knowing what the “fair” price actually is.Read More
Celebrate good times - come on! I can hear you humming! When you're travelling, nothing beats stumbling upon a celebration! This photo was taken in the town square in Arequipa, Peru. What was the celebration in aid of? I have absolutely no idea! But it was awesome! I had to snap a photo of this guy - he had the best expression on his face, the entire time. He was just getting into the groove of life!
