New York City might be famous for its glorious skyline and bustling city life, but this spot on the map truly is a city of people.
Tinder is a very popular online dating app. It’s a platform where you can meet new people, possibly a love interest, new friend or the perfect match. But after using Tinder for a few weeks, I realised it isn’t just for getting to know new people, it’s about getting to know yourself.

So this year I decided to have quarterly reviews of my 2015 resolutions. Sad to say, they didn’t always make it up to the blog, but I did constantly remind myself of the challenges I set out to achieve, and even though I never wrote them down, it did seem to help, so I’m happy […]
This coming weekend China will be celebrating its annual dog eating festival. This has activists up in arms across the globe and for obvious reasons.
