The Year of Fun #34: Yoga Teacher Training

Oh yes, I will not deny this one is a bit left field. I mean, how often have I mentioned yoga on this blog or podcast, ever? When I told some friends that I was going to be taking a YTT 200 – or a yoga teacher training course that leaves me minimally qualified to […]

The Year of Fun #33: Botanical Illustration Workshop

Last week I had the pleasure of attending a 3 hour workshop on Botanical Illustration with the Yurt Academy. Honestly I was a bit nervous before I went, partly because I’ve never attempted a formal illustration class, though I’ve done a fair amount of life drawing. Also, botanical illustration is no joke! If you can […]

The Year of Fun #32: Host a Creative Meetup

The Year of Fun #30: Brighton Royal Pavilion

Brighton Pavilion is arguably the most stunning landmark in Brighton, and honestly quite underrated. I remember visiting Brighton a lot as a kid, long before I moved here, and never once went inside the exotic palace, I only ever wandered through the gardens. I admit I did finally go last year, but I’ve always meant […]
