• How to research the best hikes Sometimes I write posts to covers VeryFAQs that I get on the socials. This is one of them, sparked by my current hiking trip extravaganza around the world. You can check out my California hikes here. I’ll keep it lovely and snappy. I tag epic finds from Instagram. I email them to myself and keep more
  • My hiking and wellness guide to Joshua Tree and Palm Springs This is part three of my LA-based series. A few things to note: As I’ve already said, this is not a full guide. It’s a mini-rundown to give you a feel for how you can hike and eat your way through a mini-break based out of LA. Tack this trip onto an LA stint and more
  • My hiking and wellness guide to Santa Monica and Venice Beach, LA This is part 2 in a series of three guides to the LA region. I’ve broken it up this way because each area is best done as a 4-6 day stint. Any less in an area and you get FOMO. Try to venture further afield than the one area and you get the LA Road more
  • My hiking and wellness guide to West Hollywood, LA So this is a series of three guides. I just spent a week in Los Angeles and Joshua Tree/Palm Springs and learned this valuable lesson: when in LA, less is more. That is, do one area at a time. In part, because transporting oneself around is a couchemare. And also because the wonders of the more
  • The Sarah Wilson Toxin-Free Travel Beauty Kit Hello. Many of you have asked for me to put together a “best-of” the toxin-free beauty products that I pack when travelling into one easy kit. I generally do what I’m asked. And so… Before taking off last week, I teamed with Nourished Life to cobble together said kit. It’s the best stuff I’ve tried and tested more
  • Fire the f*ck up! There is a piquancy in the air. A sense we’re on the precipice of something. That we can no longer afford to be complacent. And yet. We’re sitting back. Aren’t we. Waiting. For the right moment? For the red carpet to be rolled out? For someone else to take the lead? To that I say, more
  • Erin made all 306 recipes in Simplicious in 18 months. I’m blown away. When Simplicious came out October 2015 I set a challenge to all you guys: Cook every recipe in the book and tag it #simplicious306 and I’ll follow your journey and share your recipes. The process was marvellously rewarding and brought together a bunch of wonderful souls who shared their journey…and even did meet-ups along the more
  • I’ve created a Pandora anxiety mixtape for you! While I was writing my book it occurred to me, “wouldn’t it be ace to put together a soundtrack of tunes for anxious types like me that could elevate our experience to a comfortable place, particularly when we’re wired up, in line with something resembling beauty and purpose and grace…so we can, well, feel more more
  • The impossibility of being present (should we bother?) Says Soren Kierkegaard: “It is perfectly true, as the philosophers say, that life must be understood backwards. But they forget the other proposition, that it must be lived forwards.” This is, indeed, true. We are the only creatures that do this – live forwards, plunge into the future with an awareness of our inevitable finality. more
  • Bet you didn’t know your junk food was poisoning you quite like this… There’s a chemical clusterf*ck going on with your junk food that makes trans fats seem small fry. This, I believe, is the new frontier in getting aware of the God-awful way we go about eating. We now know about the toxic oil in our Nutella, the poison in our Diet Pepsi and the 50-odd ingredients in a single Macca’s milkshake.. But add this more
