  • A Weekend In Koh Samui – Part 2

    Remember how I told you that something pretty awesome happened in Thailand? What I didn’t tell you is that this whole trip was completely unplanned. Out of the blue, Ciaran gets a call to speak at a conference in Koh Samui, and three days later we were on a plane. So, I find myself suddenly in Thailand, loving the spontaneity of it […]

  • A Weekend In Ko Samui – Part 1

    I’m sitting here at my favorite local cafe, in a bit of a daze really – because just a day ago I was opening the glass door to my hotel room, stepping out to my private pool, feeding wild fish off the pier, playing with hermit crabs on the beach and spending time with my […]

  • Packing Healthy Treats for a Busy Week

    3 days, 36 solid hours. That’s the amount of time I spent this week learning how to conquer one of my biggest fears. Here’s the thing: ever since I can remember, I’ve always been a little… awkward. Both an extrovert and introvert, I love the idea of speaking to people, sharing and teaching – but […]

  • Tinkering Around

    What’s the best part of being a parent? For me, it’s the excuse to go to places like L’Observatoire –  – a project that combines art and science for kids (and child-like adults!). We spent our Sunday in a beautiful classroom brimming with evidence of children creating experiments and art. Once a month they host what they call Tinkering […]

  • Top 10 Favorite Kitchenware Shops That Inspire us to Get in the Kitchen!

    I’d like to share a story with you. About a year ago, I became really preoccupied with eating healthily. When cooking my family’s food – not only did I have the stress of planning meals, organizing the ingredients and taking the time to cook it – but I was also adding to the burden by […]

  • Journey into Juicing

    I’m all set and ready to start juicing! Seriously though – this decision has not come lightly!  There’s a lot to consider: health, cost, equipment. I’ve been looking into it for a long while now and I thought why not share with you my own questions, research and answers – because if you are anything […]

  • Repurpose Condiment Bottles into Toys

    We had fun at home repurposing condiment squeeze bottles. You gotta love how kids can find such pleasure in little things… My youngest watered our plants in the afternoon – which is always a fun activity, but sometimes a watering-can leads to more of a mess than you really wanted. A squeeze bottle was the perfect trick – […]

  • {It’s all About the Little Things} Wrinkles and Folds on My Bedsheets

    Everyday at 2pm my daughter wakes from her nap. I’m usually sitting at the desk next to the bed, quietly typing away until from one moment to the next, she opens her eyes and looks up at me. I love this time in my day. We kiss, hug and spend a few moments together until […]

  • There’s a lot of work to do – we need to work together – Join the NEA Clean & Green Hackathon

    I take this same path everyday as I walk home from the train that brings me into town and back. Even after 10 years of living here in Singapore, I’m still amazed by the contrast of old and new, of natural and man-made that makes this little Island what it is – and I’m so […]
