Books About Yoga!

Whenever I read about yoga I feel as though I’m combining my two favourite things. However, there are so many books about yoga, mindfulness and spirituality that getting started can be overwhelming.

REVIEW: Farangi Girl, Ashley Dartnell

This story I have literally had for YEARS. I read a review of Farangi Girl in a magazine back when it was published in 2011 and somehow ended up with two copies of this book and yet went six years before reading it…how is that even possible? But finally just before Christmas, I read Farangi…

I had been waiting to read Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine for some time. I had seen the cover of the book all over Instagram and read reviews and I was just really intrigued by the title and the promise of something a little bit different.
