About

Hello! Welcome to Soul Acuity.

This is a place for sharing stuff that makes the soul happy 🙂 Healthy mind + healthy body = comforted soul. I write a lot about keeping fit and mentally healthy, skincare (having had a ton of skin problems for years) and the occasional book or film review.

I’m Alice – I’m from Scotland, in my mid-twenties and stumbling through life, one mistake at a time. By day I design websites and apps; by night I sleep.

I started this blog in January 2014 as a place to chronicle training and the experience of completing Tough Mudder. It instilled a love for obstacle course racing and I still document my attempts at being an amateur OC racer. I’m not really getting any better at it.

Fragments of love: web/branding design, trying very hard to keep fit, Lush, front-end development, eating good food, sushi, psychology, classic musicals, tea, k-pop, watching too much American TV, dance (hip-hop), yoga, films and sleeping.

The name Soul Acuity flew into my head one day. It doesn’t really mean anything, but I love what it symbolises – an acute essence, an instance of being, and knowing yourself.
