“The most important thing is to enjoy your life, to be happy. It’s all that matters.”Audrey Hepburn

Hey, I’m Vicky!

Edging closer to 30 (eek!), by day I’m an environmental consultant and by evening, well.. I’m just me. I started this blog as a way to find out what interests me and as a place to write. I love writing.

After I graduated in 2011, I pretty much lost interest in a lot of things and had no real idea of what I loved. After a bit of procrastination and whining, I decided to get off my bum and get inspired. The first thing I turned to was cooking. I became inspired by all things food and jumped in at the deep end by sharing my favourite recipes in an email newsletter, which I still do.

The idea of sharing recipes grew into a blog… but I’m not the best recipe maker or experimenter and as I’ve become passionate about other things, I’ve decided to branch out. And that’s why oh beans is a place for me to share with you things that interest me, be it: Food, Fitness, Travel or Oxford.

Thank you so much for stumbling across oh beans, I really appreciate your time and would love for you to hang around here with me.

I’m not the most worldly traveler, but I get so excited by new places and cultures. Have a dig around and maybe even find some ideas or tips.
