I'm Lexie: an avid reader, conversationalist, lover of travel & DIY enthusiast currently sharing my living time between the islands of Trinidad and Tobago (in the Caribbean) and the Italian countryside.
I recently started my'journey' (if you will) to mindful and purposeful living, after years on and off, of feeling like I was playing a constant game of "catch-up" where I was solely reacting to external circumstances rather than creating the life I wanted for myself. In the past, I've often spread myself too thin as I struggled to balance my insatiable need to discover & try something new, and the conscious stability required for every day success.
This blog chronicles the strides I make as I purposefully create and enjoy my life and I hope it helps you to do the same.
This blog is an expression of everything I learn along the way and includes little tips and tricks I learnt growing up in the islands and over the years since, that has been useful in some way. I write about things that excite me,captures my attention or that I just find helpful; Some of my favourite things include creating, being thrifty, discovering healthy things to do for my mind and body and occasional random musings...so this blog is heavily influenced by of that :)

Mindfulness, creative focus, travel, exploration, thrifty organic living- are all topics I cover in this blog as I chronicle my journey to creating a better me.
