Happy Venus Day!
It’s been a while since we had one of our special conversations, an update that is long overdue. Lately, the notion of productivity is pushed through our conscious with an incessant romanticism of over-working oneself. How about we take a different path? One where taking breaks to recharge and reset your energy before things unravel is celebrated and affirmed.
Although a picture-perfect holiday to Greece helps, taking small breaks away from the busy notifications of your phone is a little step that is destined to go a long way. Internet breaks before bed help with getting a good night’s sleep - nourishment that our bodies crave inherently.
Spend time soaking in the vibrant rays of the sun in the morning, reflecting on an exciting day ahead of you and practising gratitude. Take time out to engage in sensory activities for a calm and focused start to your morning. Find ways to incorporate slow living into your lifestyle, staying away from scheduling every second of your day. It often causes more stress than it relieves. The further we are from the constant alerts of our phones, the more in touch we are with ourselves.
In the spirit of rejuvenating, I took a mini self-care holiday on the southern coast of Sussex. A town that echoes the peaceful sound of waves crashing against one of the most vibrant skies during sunset, this holiday helped me unwind weeks worth of work and put me back in tune with myself.

Happy Venus Day loves!
My body craved more gentle movement this past week, which came as no surprise since I started my luteal phase. I also became aware of my craving for something more soulful and therapeutic; a movement routine that would stimulate me physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.
When the New Year of a much anticipated year falls on a Venus Day, for me that sets the tone for that year.
When I first thought of this Journal, my aim was to share with you anything and everything that brought me nourishment, inspiration, and healing.
Thinking of you all during this Venus Day 💕 To all those celebrating, I wish you a happy and healthy Christmas.
Happy Venus Day!
Today we launch the third episode of The Venus Tapes, where I spoke with Toene Serrano, owner of the childrenswear boutique That's Not Fair, based in Hackney. We talked about our self-care routines during these unprecedented times, as well as who and what inspire us to do what we do.
