About the Site: This is a personal hobby blog that predominantly looks at the science behind the hype and combines Western approaches to health with Eastern philosophies about wellness and mindfulness, taking care of ourselves inside and out. It provides nutritious bites of information that may help readers make more informed decisions about their lifestyles, or simply serve as an entertaining read.
This site is not monetised through any paid content. My main motivations for researching and sharing have always been to further educate myself about the food I eat, the products I use and the activities I love. My family’s motto is ‘everything in moderation’ and as someone who grew up being fed the fast-paced London lifestyle, I enjoy investigating methods of becoming more mindful and balanced in an increasingly manic world. The writing / typing skills are a continuous work in progress but in the era of click-bait and junk, I hope that you may find some of the articles on here applicable and useful to you too.
About me: My name is Nia and I’m a born and bred Londoner but ethnically half Welsh and South Korean. I studied Medicine with Gastroenterology and Hepatology (gut and liver health) at Imperial College London and retain an interest in areas such as mental health and PCOS. Having eschewed the clinical world, I enjoy a variety of ventures including developing a Personal Care and Wellness Brand – Yūgenial.
I love being creative and learning, so I enjoy writing, reading, photography, pilates, yoga, talks, workshops and dancing (badly). Having written for Timeout London as a Tastemaker and worked briefly with Dojo App as a contributor, I am always looking for new things to trial or review. I have been a Junior Editor for Doctify App and have also written for Beauty By The Geeks, an evidence-based blog that reviews the top beauty products on the market and gives you factual advice when it comes to getting bang for your buck. I highly recommend the BBTG site as everyone’s go-to-guide when it comes to bathroom essentials: how often have you spent precious pennies on a promising new product, only to find out that its not nearly as effective as its marketing campaign?

A past portfolio ranging from Buckingham Palace to Playboy Club London demonstrates my enthusiasm for novelty and disparate experiences or projects.
