Life Balance and You.

Find your work-life balance with Bewildered Bug

I sometimes have had people look at me in amazement at the busy-ness of my weekly schedule – and some of them actually vocalise what they are thinking “how do you do it all?”.  I always laugh the question off because the truth is, I don’t do it all.  At some point, one of the roles that I play usually gets shoved under the radar (more often than not recently, this blog – sorry) and forgotten about for quite a while,… Continue Reading “Life Balance and You.”

Skin Allergy Disaster

Skin allergy disaster with Bewildered Bug

So this week my skin decided to remind me how much of an allergy queen I was.  For the first time in about one and a half decades, I’m taking steroids because of an allergy attack.  This time, it was not an mysterious anaphylactic reaction like those that used to happen when I was a teenager, but rather, a reaction to products used in a facial last Sunday.  I was so excited too – a facial and massage – a… Continue Reading “Skin Allergy Disaster”

Small miracles and my Ray of Sunshine

Small miracles by Bewildered Bug

I sat in church, not paying attention to mass, but instead thinking of all the things that were weighing heavy on my mind.  This whole move to London was just dragging me down.  My life was going nowhere, my marriage falling apart, my career seemingly impossible.  London had brought with it a whole series of challenges that I had not even imagined would happen – after all, the worst was supposed to be behind us, right?  This was the future… Continue Reading “Small miracles and my Ray of Sunshine”

Improving your quality of sleep

Improving your quality of sleep by Bewildered Bug

Let’s talk about sleep.  I mean real, quality sleep.  I’m one of those people.  I’m the person who cannot sleep because there’s a miniscule crack of light in the room, or a light from a charging iPhone, or the sound of someone’s radio two apartments away or….just  name it and it probably keeps me up.  I was the child who, when spending the night at my best friend’s house, did not sleep.  I remember many and many times of lying… Continue Reading “Improving your quality of sleep”

Gluten Free Street Food Festival

Gluten Free Street Food Festival with Bewildered Bug

You read that right – I found a gluten free street food festival.  Okay, perhaps I didn’t find it – the lovely people from one of my #foodie Meetup groups, The Gluten Free London Club (check them out if you like to eat out gluten free and want some company), found it.  They found this festival a bit last minute and put up the meetup last minute….but I’m so glad they did because even though I was not able to… Continue Reading “Gluten Free Street Food Festival”

The Benefits of Rose Hip Oil

The Benefits of Rosehip Oil by Bewildered Bug

I’m really excited to tell you about Sukin certified organic rose hip oil.  If you’ve followed the blog, you know that I have complained about my skin many, many, many times…that’s cause I’m either horrible at taking care of my skin or my skin is just impossible.  Since moving to London, the hard water and added stresses have made my skin even MORE impossible.  It got to such a point that even my cousin (who makes homemade and all natural… Continue Reading “The Benefits of Rose Hip Oil”

Lessons Learnt from Toronto

Lessons learnt from Toronto by Bewildered Bug

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed that a few weeks ago, I visited Toronto.  It was a great opportunity to get back to familiar places and experiences and to see so many of the people I miss.  I had familiar food, found myself in familiar haunting grounds (and even in some unfamiliar ones too) and I learnt a lot about myself.  It’s always said that you cannot truly see a situation until you step out of… Continue Reading “Lessons Learnt from Toronto”

Three of the vacation destinations on my bucket list

top vacation spots on my bucket list by Bewildered Bug

Do you have any dream vacation spots that you’d love to go on?  I’m sure you do – because although I’ve traveled a lot in my life, I definitely have some “bucket list” destinations on my list that I have yet to reach.  I am not sure when I’ll get to go to these places, but since many of them are on this side of the Atlantic, I’m going to try to take advantage of being here as soon as… Continue Reading “Three of the vacation destinations on my bucket list”

Handpicked Spring Snacking from The Healthy Shopper

Coconut and Peanut Pad Thai Recipe from The Healthy Shoppers and Bewildered Bug

Please welcome Shari back to the blog to discuss the handpicked spring snacking from The Healthy Shopper.  As you know, she has a houseful of bouncing not-so-baby boys, so they definitely enjoy their food – and healthy snacks are on the top of her priority list.  Interestingly, when discussing the Healthy Shoppers Spring 2014 picks, Shari had come up with her own version of easy pad thai, and this Spring (2015), she’s added a twist to a basic pad thai… Continue Reading “Handpicked Spring Snacking from The Healthy Shopper”

Spa Hacks to help you relax (by Cassie)

Spa Hacks to Relax at home with Bewildered Bug

Living on your own has its advantages – including the ability to truly discover who you are and what you need without any distraction.  As much as it was difficult to live apart from the Luv Luv for the last 3 1/2 years (approx.), I think I needed it because I have figured out what I need from life to be happy, healthy and the best I can be.  One of those things is me-time and relax time – and… Continue Reading “Spa Hacks to help you relax (by Cassie)”
