Living La Dolce Vita...

“everything you see, I owe to spaghetti.” - Sophia Loren
Whenever I’m in a junk food funk, reading about the classic 1950s era #mediterranean food-lifestyle never fails to inspire!

It’s the basis of a #diet focused on #passion, not denial, and it’s scientifically proven to be one of the healthiest in the world: #plantbased with a little fish and meat; #bread, fresh + roasted vegetables, olive oil, wholegrains, herbs, legumes, #chocolate, gelato and #wine all have their place on the table. #Quality not quantity, #homemade#homegrown if possible, savoured and celebrated, ideally in good company, followed by a relaxed #stroll or late-night #dancing.

Mmmmmmm, #ladolcevita! xo

Bake To Basics...



#repost from @vixbythesea

What do you do when you have all the ingredients for making your #passion / #talent / #business into a big #success…then discover that ‘success’ doesn’t always taste of #happiness?

Well, here’s a story about the people behind a highly successful #bakery, who have been #brave enough to go right back to #basics - reconnecting with the #beautiful #ideals that inspired them to begin in the first place. I've never been to this bakery but a friend shared the story with me and I'm passing it on because it's just so deliciously inspiring. Read 'an ending' at bakery47.com

“we want to reinstate value in the hands of the maker, to increase people’s care for the things they eat, drink, share and celebrate. our approach to being open until we sell out, to selling out, to only opening 4 days a week, to only doing as much as we as people are able, to closing when life requires us to, are all a part of that aim. for us, closing the bakery at 76 victoria road while we are doing so well there will continue to challenge those familiar market driven values which many people have come to accept as given. we are not motivated by profit margins, expansion or acclaim but rather by shared pleasure, enjoyment and satisfaction.” - @bakery47 /// bakery47.com/an-ending

‘If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.’- JRR Tolkien

Welcome To The Jungle!

Love The Wise Owl? Give A Hoot About Forests And Free Speech...


Enchanted by this beauty today - the Barred Owl.  I just discovered that it’s known for its distinctive hoot - and it's symbolic of expressing yourself through your voice.

The owl's habitat, the Great Northern Forest, is a unique global ecosystem circling the planet. Now though, the forest and free speech are both being threatened by Resolute Forest Products, who, ironically, cut down trees so that they can become books, newspapers and magazines.

Instead of facing criticism of their unsustainable practices, Resolute are telling Greenpeace to stop talking about it, using a lawsuit called Strategic Lawsuits Against Public Participation (#SLAPP), a dangerous tool to stop people from speaking out.

Love forests? Believe in free speech? Well, be inspired by the Barred Owl and give a hoot!


Share the story on social media.

Voice Overs - 2017 (so far...)


It’s been a speedy 6 months! Just a few of my favourite #voiceover projects in the first half of #2017 - including radio + instore ads, on-hold, narration and online corporate/educational videos

I’m lucky to work from my own #recordingstudio and at super cool city studios for isdn and in-person sessions.

Need a #voiceartist for your project? Scottish, natural, subtly husky, 20s-30s?
