THE ART OF JUST SAYING NO

I’ve been a little bit TED-obsessed lately and this week stumbled upon an interesting video that spoke volumes to me: The Magic of Not Giving a F*ck, presented by Sarah Knight (which seems to be a condensed version of her book on the same topic). In a nutshell, this TEDx talk is all about setting…… Continue reading THE ART OF JUST SAYING NO

LIFE WITHOUT SUGAR: 4 MONTHS IN

The end of November is almost here and that means I have achieved something I wasn’t sure I ever would: I’ve lived without sugar for almost four months! I posted about three months ago to report back on how my first month went; in summary, it was a success and I’ve kept up a sugar-free…… Continue reading LIFE WITHOUT SUGAR: 4 MONTHS IN
