Khallouk & Taylor

K&T 004

        Sometimes you will find yourself in an area and you just don’t know where to go for a cup of something refreshing.  This happened to me when I was staying with a good friend in Pimlico.  Fortunately she knew where to go and took us to Khallouk & Taylor.  This is […]

The Livity Community

The Livity Community

You may have noticed that my posting has been a little less than normal in recent weeks. A few of you may have even wondering what I have been up to, why I have not been on Facebook or Twitter with the usual regularity. Well my Livity Lovelies there is a very good explanation for […]

Strawberry Fields Forever

This year I have had to make significant efforts to remind myself that we are actually “enjoying” the months of summer.  As the weather has taken a dip and  the mornings are often grey, I decided that some positive action had to be taken to bring back some summer lovin’.  One of my memories of […]

“Oh I do like to be beside the sea side…Oh I do like to be beside the sea”


I am always up for a change of environment and when we made a date to meet up with friends in Brighton no-one was happier than me.  Fresh sea breeze, raw vegan cheese-cake and raw vegan ice cream, a coastal train ride and a good old natter…what more could you ask for?       […]

Caudete Lounging

Caudete 001

We visit Caudete a few times a year to catch up with family and new friends.  It is the ideal place to veg out, take in the scenery, catch up on some reading and connect with people.  I enjoy the time, the space, the food, the people, the conversations, the laughter and the heat….I hope […]

Some days are easier than others.  Some days lend themselves  to being contented with the smaller things that life has to offer, the things that can get overlooked in our schedules of work, family and play.  I was reminded today how the simplest of things can bring joy and we should perhaps take a little […]
