How useful is a Hogwarts Education?

A friend of mine posted this article on Social Media today, and as I read it, I can’t help myself from sharing it. Not only because it is wonderfully witty and well written … but also, because it’s true! The article is in fact a letter from a Hogwarts graduate, complaining about his lack of employability, and thus inability to […]

We’re Gonna Party like it’s 2005

The internet had a collective orgasm the other night. As I am pretty sure everyone knows, photos of Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt that are so wonderful (but also wholesome, look who we’re talking about here) were taken at the SAG awards – so much so that if you weren’t careful, you’d think we were somehow back in 2005. The […]

Toxic Relationships – The Royal Edition

Toxic relationships are the worst. Sadly, most of us have had to deal with toxic people in our lives, in way way or another. It could be a parent, a sibling, a friend or a coworker. According to HealthScope: “a toxic relationship is a relationship characterized by behaviors on the part of the toxic partner that are emotionally and, not […]

I remember watching the movies as a kid with my dad, dreaming of going out on space adventures, kicking ass with Princess Leia and often wondering why Luke was such a whiny brat ( love you Mark Hamill!).

Yoga Tips

I do love working out in general, swimming, hiking, going to the gym (former Crossfitter here! Miss it!) – all of it! But I found that hot […]

The Need for Diverse Voices

About two years ago, when I was halfway through my novel, I attended a fiction writing masterclass hosted by the Geneva Writers Group. I’d been part of the group for a few years, but had never actually attended a master class before. But when I saw such a well-known writer coming in – he’d written books and wrote for a […]

What Would a Mediocre Man do?

It has recently come to my attention that many of us are idiots when it comes to our goals (yes, I’m the biggest idiot of them all because this just came to my attention recently). I’m speaking mostly about women here, but this also applies to intelligent, hard-working men as well.  We find ourselves stupefied when we see how some […]

A Week Without Plastic

We all know that plastic takes many lifetimes to decompose (if at all), and that it is now posing a serious threat to our environment. Both the WWF and Greenpeace have campaigns regarding the dangers of plastic, and we read about it more and more in the media. So most of us, at least, are aware of the problem. With […]
