Hello and welcome to my food, health and lifestyle blog PocketsizedCook, formerly known as CrystalCosmicChic. What started out purely as a fashion blog back in 2013 has now blossomed into so much more. 

I'm Nokhuthula, a 20 something overindulgent food lover, Human Nutrition and Dietetics student, health enthusiast and excessive home cook/baker living in beautiful Wales, UK. You usually find me sipping on a cup of tea with my head buried in books like The Small Change Diet, No Whine With Dinner and Eat Your Way To Happiness. I found myself wanting to delve more and more into food Chemistry which is what led me to study Dietetics. 

Apart from being a self-confessed foodie; I'm also a Sociology and Criminology Graduate, Dental Nurse and Visual Merchandiser. Just an ordinary girl finding her place in a big world.

This blog has become a place I share my passions, the puzzles life presents, my hopes and dreams. Writing is therapeutic for me, it helps to change my outlook, improve my mood and regulate emotions.  In May 2016, I was diagnosed with Irritable Bowel Syndrome and I am successfully managing it through diet and exercise. Bad days are inevitable but keeping positive is key. IBS is a subject that's rarely ever talked about, it is an embarrassment to the masses but it is a real problem that needs to be addressed accordingly. I am doing my bit in helping to raise awareness of this widespread condition, we bloaters deserve a lot more recognition.

Thanks for visiting xo
