My Dog Who Chews

When my dog chews a bone, she chews it with so much gusto, I wonder, why? What is it about this solid form that entertains her so much, and stops her chewing my trousers, my shoes, my sofa, fluff from under the sofa, my boots, my coat, the cat, her bed, my bed, me? SheContinue reading “My Dog Who Chews”

Turning the tables with Turmeric

Ahhh dear, sweet coffee, you have been my constant companion for decades. For years we have strolled streets, sat in cafes, you’ve been the eavesdropper to many conversations and confessions, the giver of life, and a gift of love. But, we all knew it could not last and over the years, I have tried myContinue reading “Turning the tables with Turmeric”

Raw Cacao – a hug in a mug

My friend Ozzie, who lives in LA, teaching yoga, recently advised me to get on board with Raw Cacao. Of course i’d heard of it because I haven’t been living under a stone lately, but I’d never tried it. I tried to source it locally to me in Edinburgh, (North) but failed and took toContinue reading “Raw Cacao – a hug in a mug”

Overnight Oats

I was wary of overnight oats, mainly because I love oats, and didn’t want to fall out with them. If a cold oat isn’t in a sweet and buttery flapjack form, how on earth could they be good? I’m a convert now though, it’s a case of finding the right combination of add ons, andContinue reading “Overnight Oats”

Writing – Is it the dream job?

When I was a little girl, aged around 5, our teacher asked our small class to write down what we wanted to be when we were older. It was a simple task, but I hadn’t given it any thought before that time. I can remember this moment vividly because it caused me so much distress.Continue reading “Writing – Is it the dream job?”

Ready Made Smoothie Mixes

Now, I’ve learned over time that smoothies are probably one of the easiest things to make, so you don’t really need a recipe. I’m a BIG fan of chucking the fruits and vegetables I like, into a blender, blitzing and drinking. I do know, however, that it’s nice to follow a recipe as a guide.Continue reading “Ready Made Smoothie Mixes”

Project Health – Living with Rosacea and Thyroid Disease.

On this day, May 26th, I have made a big decision. Let me share… Last night I watched myself act in my friends short film, ‘Mute’, as part of the 48hour film project. When asked to do the role, my friend explained the character was a depressed woman, locked in her flat, no make-up, darkContinue reading “Project Health – Living with Rosacea and Thyroid Disease.”

It’s Only Hair

Like most women, I know my hair very well, I know what colour suits me, what cut suits me, and how to style it. The joy I have in my hair is mirrored by the lack of experience some hairdressers have with it. This experience, I know, comes because they do not know it asContinue reading “It’s Only Hair”

Book Review: Sapiens

I could just write, wow, and stop this post, but I think I owe to all of us to pen a few paragraphs on this fantastic book. As a writer, slash, blogger, slash,, reader, slash, person, I love books! A few years back I turned to books that taught you something. This wonderful moment convenientlyContinue reading “Book Review: Sapiens”

Hello, again, hello..

  In an attempt to keep writing, I am going to attempt to inject some life back into this here blog. I’ve had dalliances elsewhere, I’m not going to lie, but, like a crazed lover, I keep coming back this little lady. Who I am now? I Am Karlie. Where it all began, all thoseContinue reading “Hello, again, hello..”
