I considered moving somewhere lovely and studying for a Masters degree – somewhere in Belgium or Holland perhaps, where I would sit on my balcony at sunrise, enjoying a coffee and pondering upon life like the philosopher I always thought I would turn out to be.

That fell through (when I say it fell through, what I really mean is that I stopped pursuing it out of sheer procrastination but also because wine). I’m now working in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia and feeling the daily struggles/joy’s/shocks of living as a woman in a man’s world. This is my journey, my diary and my voice that I’m leaving here for you all to see.

I’m a day-dreamer, a failed artist, a ‘writer’ of some description, a sister, a daughter, a lover and a friend. I’m a hopeless idealist, an obsessive character observer, an onlooker and something is always making me nervous. I’m a foodie, a health junkie but a lover of wine. I’m a chef and a baker to those around me. I’m a self-proclaimed know-it-all and a lover of art. I’m a Leo, guided by fire and I’m young and sometimes lost. I’m a vegan and a lover of animals and nature, I’m one person on this journey to myself.

I hope it makes for an interesting read, do comment/like/share/subscribe, whichever tickles your fancy and I’ll be most pleased!

All the love
