I’ve had the opportunity and the need to share different ideas, learning, stories in recent years. Some of them are deeply personal; others have been global in their scope. Many of them are signposted below.
Want to work together?
Want to chatting generally or exploring specifically how we could work together in any way? I am always keen to see how I can work with individuals or organisations dedicated to similar ideas around intentional, ethical, sustainable living.

For three years I was a regular columnist for Clarity magazine, which aims to challenging perceptions and bringing truth into day-to-day life for students and twenties. I’ve written about marriage, moon cups, how to survive a five-hour commute, as well as an eco-friendly beauty column, Eve Essentials. A few Clarity blog highlights:
- Natural Highlights : Keep your summer shade home-made
- Homemade lipstick: Bee-friendly and bold shades to make you smile…
- Hydrating chocolate face mask ready for confectionary filled holidays
- Sun-kissed skin for Autumn

Joining a volunteer lifeboat crew in London fired my curiosity about the other women who crew lifeboats. So I’ve started interviewing women across the UK and Ireland. A mini-series was launched on the RNLI online magazine for International Women’s Day 2020.
