Hi there!

Thanks for visiting A Little Mad Smith. As some of you OGs will know, A Little Mad Smith started life around three years ago as a lifestyle blog, with a particular focus on craft and baking. Sadly, like all good things, it had to come to an end. A combination of university studies, summer internships and life got in the way, and I took a year’s blogging break to help get myself back on track.

Now I’ve returned, and I am so excited to be getting back in the game.

“So if your blog is three years old, where are all the posts?!”, I hear you cry. Well, I’ve taken down my old posts in order to give A Little Mad Smith a fresh start, much like I’ve given myself this past year. I’m not completely sure what type of content I’ll be sharing on here in the coming months to be quite honest with you, but I am excited for it nonetheless.

Over the past year, I have been working on making small changes in order to create a happier and more sustainable lifestyle for myself. I have slowly been introducing more vegan alternatives into my currently vegetarian diet, and finding ways I can reduce my waste and have a better environmental impact. I have also been finding ways to improve my mental wellbeing, increasing my regular yoga routines to include meditation and taking time to create a better work-life balance. I also cut off all my hair and dyed it pink, because why the heck not. 

I still adore crafting and baking, though recently my focus has mainly been on developing my cooking skills! I am not an expert chef, but I do enjoy playing around with new recipes in the kitchen. I’m hoping that I will be able to share some of my new favourite recipes here, as well as some of my tried and tested baking classics.

Anyway, that’s enough rambling from me, let’s get this blog on the road. How hard can it be, right…?
