travel :: lakes

Two weeks ago, I went on a little day trip to the Lake District with a friend. We town-hopped till we dropped, and I loved every minute of it. There is nothing like driving from Lake Windermere, through Ambleside to Keswick. The scenery is incredible. The hills are rolling, and the weather was so moody that […]

life :: unedited

So many times a day we betray our wild and wonderful selves in an attempt to blend in—and for what? The greatest joy occurs when we get out of our own way and allow for the unearthing of our unedited soul. -TheGoodTrade Happy Sunday lovelies! A new week begins tomorrow, and after a gorgeous yet rainy […]

life :: firework

Wow, it feels like forever since I have contributed some words. But here I am, returned in force to hit you with some Monday mid-afternoon thoughts. Despite it being my favourite time of year this (past) week: Halloween and Bonfire Night, I’ve been lacking inspiration like never before. Having been ill with flu what what […]

life :: unplanned

Vagabond – a person who wanders from place to place […] The unexpected things are the best right? That surprise holiday, that surprise family visit, that surprise best-friend-on-the-doorstep, even that “shall we go to the pub?” question. We waste so much energy on planning. You get yourself all busy up in your diary, jotting down […]

faith :: courageous

While I’m holed up in bed with a migraine that’s making me nauseous (sorry for the image of me vomiting), I thought why not put some words into a post. I’m finding a lot of courage of late. It took a lot for me to deal with something that could have easily broken me just […]

life :: narrative

It’s been a while since I put pen to paper to continue my narrative. I have always loved writing, and Kulayrosas is a mere offshoot of that branch of my life. Of late, I have been finding more and more sources of inspiration, and thus feel more and more inspired to write, and read. It’s […]

year abroad :: fini

Coucou mes amours, l’année en France est finie. Franchement, je suis prête pour revenir à mon pays natal avec l’énergie et viveur, connaissant moi-même mieux, et ayant commencé à grandir. I am so happy. This year could not have been better; I simply couldn’t have asked for more. Heck, it hasn’t been perfect but it […]

year abroad :: pace

It’s a lonely, breezy Tuesday and I’m lay on what me friends call the “platans” area of the quay on Bordeaux. I can’t lie, it’s pretty ‘chill’ and the two gigantic cruise liners are fantastically majestic. After last week, which was a lot of fun I must admit, I’m knackered – and a moment to […]

love :: laisse tomber

The essence of letting go is faith. It was easier than I thought to find my supposed ‘other half’ – though who really knows? Considering we are whole already in terms of body, perhaps we should stop describing our life companions as our ‘other halves’. I do believe that it’s necessary for people to come and […]

life :: joy in abundance

This topic has been popping up around me a lot lately so I feel pressed to address it, speak and mediate (or type, duh) on it. Our lives are abundant, yet we never quite seem to reach satisfactory satisfaction. As the Arctic Monkeys say “Satisfaction is a distant memory” (Ru Mine). It’s so distant, it […]
