Day 267 – Plantain Crisps

I'm looking after my friend's dog at the moment, the lovely Sascha. She is cute, cuddly, and a little time-intensive: she likes a lot of attention and sometimes it's difficult to get a lot done. She's the cutest little monkey, but I can't quite get used to being watched when I go to the bathroom!… Continue reading Day 267 – Plantain Crisps

Day 267 – Ayurveda Basics

Ayurveda has become one of the new buzzwords in health over the past few years, and I've seen it pop up on social media, women's magazines, and TV programmes. Ayurveda, Sanskrit for the science of life, is an alternative medicine, originating in India where a large portion of the population still use its principles today.… Continue reading Day 267 – Ayurveda Basics

Day 266 – Every Name Counts Project

One of the big things I've discovered from this year has been Zooniverse – an online platform for research projects requiring volunteers. I have done a few new things through there already including transcribing anti-slavery letters, tracking penguin numbers, and helping NASA classify pictures of Mars for their Mars Rover – a diverse and interesting… Continue reading Day 266 – Every Name Counts Project

Day 265 – Northern Lights

The northern lights are one of nature's wonders that seem so other-worldly there's no wonder Phillip Pullman used them to depict a parallel universe in The Northern Lights. These beautiful, magical light displays can be seen the closer to the north pole you get and are common occurrences in the most northern parts of Scandinavia,… Continue reading Day 265 – Northern Lights

Day 264 – Stickman Adventures

This was a fun and quick new thing! I've found a few different ladies through Instagram who are doing the same challenge as me, doing something new, every day. We've been taking inspiration from each other, and my new thing today comes after seeing a post on Draw a Stickman by one of my fellow… Continue reading Day 264 – Stickman Adventures

Day 263 – Clean-up Frankfurt

Throughout the summer, Clean FFM has been running regular events for the community to help pick-up litter in different rubbish hot-spots around the city. Since March, I've definitely noticed an increase in bottles and picnic remains everywhere. It got so bad in the city in July that Clean FFM made a point by providing a… Continue reading Day 263 – Clean-up Frankfurt

Day 262 – Hand-Sewn Headscarf

Today I decided to pull out of some fabric out of the stash I'd acquired for making masks and whip up something a bit more fun. I'm not the best sewer, I make everything by hand as I don't own a machine, but I enjoy doing little projects such as making juggling balls, or a… Continue reading Day 262 – Hand-Sewn Headscarf

Day 261 – Handball Match

Before living in Germany I had never heard of handball. During one German lesson, a classmate mentioned it and I questioned it, honestly thinking she'd made it up. The teacher swiftly informed me that I was wrong, and it turns out the whole class knew about handball except me. I didn't think it was even… Continue reading Day 261 – Handball Match

Day 260 – Nollywood film

After my adventures in Bollywood a couple of weeks ago, I was curious to explore output from other big film industries around the world. I knew Bollywood was the biggest film industry in the world, but I was expecting maybe China or Hollywood to not be far behind. It turns out I was very wrong,… Continue reading Day 260 – Nollywood film

Day 259 – Let Someone Else Order

I think it's probably no surprise that food is a big passion of mine. I love reading recipes, planning out what I'll eat for the week (bonus - this helps reduce food waste and the shopping bill too!) and getting creative in the kitchen. If I'm going out to eat I also like to have… Continue reading Day 259 – Let Someone Else Order
