In honour of Hot Tea Month, it seems appropriate to revel a little further in our favourite leafy drink with Leaves, a celebration of the teas and books of our lives.

Today I am enjoying the Stormy Night blend from David's Teas, and The Essential Writings of Caryll Houselander.

Have you got the kettle on? 


  1. Ah, the kettle is always on here! I just finished Abraham Verghese's a Cutting for Stone, a great book especially if you have any interest in medicine. I am now reading Nomad by Ayaan Hirsi Ali. She is the Somali-born writer who escaped a life of Islamic fundamentalism and embraced the enlightenment inspired ideals of the west. It is a fascinating read and, I think, a necessary one on the dangers of encouraging immigrants not to assimilate.

  2. I'm into good old Bridget Jones Diary, giggling to myself and drinking a new-to-me black tea called Taylors of Harrowgate Yorkshire Tea. It's delish.



What is a woman? What does it mean to be feminine? There is softness and hardness, compassion and ferocity. There is contentment and adventure, freedom and service. We're conundrums, especially to ourselves, but we all, in some way, possess beauty, creativity, intuition and love. We were made for love, and we are loved, cellulite and all. Here we aim to show every woman the richness and beauty of her own femininity and explore current issues relating to women in our world. We also wish to share our own experiences - exploring the joys and challenges of stay-at-home moms and single professionals and everyone in between. Welcome! So glad you're here!
