I’m Alice and I’m a Bristol based (food) explorer. I like strong cups of tea, poems and not talking about diets.
Who I Am
I have struggled with a disordered relationship with food and my body for the last ten years. A little while ago I decided to give up dieting for good and here I explore my struggles and triumphs and hopefully a pearl of wisdom or two along the way. When I’m not shouting loudly about how women should take up space in the world, I can usually be found running my food tour business, stomping around the city with a podcast or eating peanut butter from the jar. I’m also a cacti enthusiast and my collection is slowly taking over my flat in Bristol!
What I Do
I started opening up about my struggles with anxiety, dieting and binge eating over Instagram and when trying to seek help, realised that there is a huge amount of radio silence on the topic. I want to be the person on social media who my 18 year old self could really have benefited from following. Binge eating isn’t a glamorous thing to be talking about and for a long time I didn’t realise I had a problem, I wasn’t considered medically underweight and was laughed out of many a doctors surgery (but that’s a story for another day!). Although I consider myself on the ‘other side’ of an eating disorder, recovery really is a journey and not a destination and therefore I will share the lows as well as the highs as I muddle my way through life trying to establish and maintain a “normal” relationship with food and my body. However, I’ve also decided that I need to shift my focus from being wholly on this topic. Creating and surrounding myself with content only centred on these themes could potentially be preventing me from living a fulfilled life therefore you will be met with a lot of Bristol loving, feminist ranting and whatever else I fancy writing about. I’m really happy that you’ve decided to come and explore what I have to say.
Reviews & features
I will only ever post about places or products that I genuinely like on this blog and on my Instragram and will always disclose if I have been asked to write a partnership post. If you would like to collaborate on this, please contact me via email.
