Hello there.

It's nice to meet you.

I'm Jessica.

Once upon a time, I wrote a lot on this blog.

Now, not so much. But I don't have the b*lls to totally delete it from the internet just yet. So, here it remains, collecting dust. 

So if you've ended up here, hello and welcome. I still tweet from time to time and pin (see above) and if you want to see what I do, click on the giant box below that says VIEW MY WORK.

TTFN, y'all.

HOW TO | Exercise for free this spring and summer

IN EUROPE, many free activities are so routinely practiced they’re simply part of daily life. Walking, for one, is as natural as breathing, whereas Americans sometimes walk as little as a few hundred steps (that’d be to the car and back) per day.

In London, I walk 4+ miles daily without ostentatious trainers and other garish accoutrement screaming to the world “I’M EXERCISING”! Invisible exercise is inevitable, running up the escalator from the Tube and heaving shopping home on foot.

To save myself from preaching to the choir, we’ve ferreted out free outdoor activities that go above and beyond the normal daily activity of a European. For my fellow Americans, the list might read ‘walk 100 feet to the shop instead of driving, stand up to turn the television channel, etc.’ but there’s no need for such hand holding here.
