Having your period

Periods can be a nuisance. From PMS to staining your favourite underwear to having awful cramps, this monthly phenomenon affects many people. Go easy on the person who is on their period - whether that's someone you care about or yourself. Your body is going through a lot so take it easy. And get someone to bring you chocolate. It always helps.

My top 10 posts

Retable Sunday is 1 year old! I can't even believe that I am writing this. What started as a way to fill my days while looking for a job has now become a hobby that has taught me a lot and helped me seize incredible opportunities. I will dedicate the next post to my journey and what I have learned since I have started blogging. But until then, here is a list of my most-read and popular blogs. I hope you will enjoy (re-)reading them as much as I enjoyed writing them!

15 Cooking tips

Cooking is an art. I have always struggled with it and it's been even harder since being diagnosed with IBS which has forced me to cook from scratch more. Thankfully, my flatmate is an amazing cook so she has taught me a few tips and tricks. With the current quarantine, many of us are forced to cook at home more because most restaurants are closed. There is no better time to learn how to cook!

Toxic friendships

Because toxic friendships are difficult to recognise and accept, I decided to share some things I have learned from past experiences and things that I have read on this topic. Do keep in mind that every friendship is different and everything that follows is more of a guide rather than a one-size-fits-all.

Feeling at a loss

Everyone feels at a loss every once in a while, especially when big events happen or big decisions have to be made. How are we supposed to stay sane and move towards our goals when everything that we normally do, everything that defines us, can’t be done? It’s in times like these that it is especially important for you to reflect on yourself and on your life, figure out what you really want and what you should probably stop spending your precious energy on. Here is a list of things that I have found helpful during this lockdown when I’m feeling lost or overwhelmed. I hope that these will help you too.
