Welcome to Cherries & Chisme!
I’m Pip, a 23 year old British girl working towards a Masters in Human Rights in London. In January 2014 I spent 6 months living and interning in Buenos Aires, Argentina and kind of fell in love with the place, you can read more about that here.
There’s been a lot of lessons learnt along the way, challenges faced and fears overcome. And I wouldn’t change one little bit as that’s what’s made me who I am today.
Once upon a time I used to be a rower but now I’m a CrossFit newb, a bit of a runner, a wannabe yogi and a secret cyclist (?). Aka all of the above. To me life’s all about balance…
…I love to get a sweat on but I do it just as much for my mental wellbeing as my physical.
…I eat to nourish my body but I don’t forget about my soul either. Baking is my therapy.
…I love to find inspiration in travel and new place and people but the new found appreciation for home when I return is equally awesome.
…I love to look for the little things in life that make my day but sometimes you’ve got to look at the bigger picture to see just how lucky you are.
A few things from my love list…
Golden sunny evenings…yoga…the seaside…longs flights to new adventures…moments of total calm…baking…coffee with friends…that massive high after exercise…a new outfit…change in seasons…being transported back to a moment just by a song…watching the sunrise and looking forward to a day full of possibilities…laughing so much your stomach hurts…loosing myself in a film…discovering new green smoothies…learning something new…the freedom of that perfect run…gaining a different perspective…frozen bananas…big dreams…freedom…soy chai lattes…conquering new challenges…autumn mornings…cosy days at home with bad weather outside…long cycle rides…contributing to make something better…frozen cherries (of course!)
I’m hoping that Cherries & Chisme (Spanish for gossip) is going to mould into a collection full of healthy ideas for baking, explorations into cooking, travel adventures and general ponderings.
