Today felt like the first real day of Autumn. I've been in France for the past two weeks, which is still in the last leisurely days of summer. It was bright and sunny and even the wind was warm. Here, it's a different story. When I woke up, I felt that the ...

A warming bowl
I didn't realise how time-consuming cooking was until I started cooking for myself. I used to read the "30 minutes and under" sections of cookery books and magazines with a slightly disdainful air, thinking that 30 minutes was nothing for a decent meal. But...

These past few months in media
After a splurge of posts in January, I'll admit that I have somewhat neglected this blog. (Not my column for the Varsity  blog, though!) So, here's a little list to let you know what I have been up to. (image source) TV and Drama Gilmore Girls (Netflix) I'm...
