March update – a year of shopping consciously

When I set up this challenge for myself, I hadn’t anticipated just how much rewiring it was going to take. It’s so easy to revert to old thoughtless habits when you’re struck by a good offer! In summary, progress so far has been hit and miss, if I am completely honest. I certainly still have…

It has been a little while since COP26, and what lasting impacts have remained? Beforehand, I made a few flippant comments such as ‘they’ll make a load of promises they have no intention of sticking to’ and ‘it’s going to be a repeat of the 2020 goals that just get pushed back to 2050’. I…

What’s in the name?

It seems fitting to explain some of the meaning behind the name of this blog. While you may be familiar with the expression ‘life’s a bitch’ and the negative connotations that come along with that, ‘life is a beech’ will discuss how life can be both a blessing and a curse. I would like to…

Welcome to life is a beech

Hello and welcome to life is a beech! This is a blog intended as a space to pose questions, engage with others and to gain broader meaning and understanding about the big wide world. This is not intended as a personal diary, but rather an opportunity to escape to the real world and discuss what…
