Looking back into the Peregrina playlist archives, it’s evident that – for me – any change of season calls for a soundtrack. So, it’s hardly surprising that I found myself collecting songs again recently to match the mellow golden glow of Autumn. A season after my own heart. I guess the reason I love it so…Continue Reading “Playlist: Hazy Autumn Days”
With the weather wavering between Indian Summers and snow down here in Cape Town, I’ve been craving music to suit this dreamy liminality. So, in between getting work done yesterday, I created a new playlist (one of my favourite things in the world) which captures a bit of the mood. It’s a little cloud of…Continue Reading “Playlist: Somewhere between Winter and Spring”
Yesterday was the shortest day of the year for us here in the southern hemisphere. And also the longest night. Mid-winter. It’s been cold and stormy and I keep finding myself closing up tight into a bud, instead of blooming where I’m planted (as the motivational wallpaper on my work computer says I should).

One of the main reasons for this…Continue Reading “How to get your home yoga practice going”
Remember in August last year I shared my 5 favourite podcasts with you? Well, seven months down the line and I’m more obsessed with *listening* to stories than ever before, regularly discovering new gems to add to my weekly playlist. Instead of introducing you to a batch of my new favourite podcasts, however, I’d rather…Continue Reading “Podcast episodes I’ve enjoyed lately”
Okay, look people, I’m of the opinion that if there weren’t any music in this world, there would pretty much be no reason to exist. At all. Imagine we had to wade through our lives sans soundtrack. No soppy love songs to accompany the mushy first flutterings of butterflies-in-the-stomach. No epic oeuvres to guide us…Continue Reading “What I’ve been listening to lately”
