Although A Natural Detour has been pretty heavily focused on the foodie stuff in it's first couple of months I also wanted to introduce a regular feature where I can share little snippets talking everything from TV to podcasts, books, crafts and anything else under the umbrella of 'life outside blogging'. The Little Detours series is my version of a 'happy list' style post and a chance for you to get to know the person behind the blog a little better.


Winter Sun | With constant cold weather it can be easy to stay inside and hide away for the winter months, but the sun shining brightly on a recent country walk was a very welcome surprise.

This Is Us | The highlight of my TV week lately has definitely been new US drama This Is Us. The show follows the lovable Pearson family and seems to drop a new bombshell every episode. I can't wait to see where they go with the storylines for the rest of the season and beyond (the show has recently been renewed for two more seasons!). I'd highly recommend checking this one out if you haven't seen it yet.

Diffusing | A couple of months ago I finally invested in an electronic diffuser to pair with my growing essential oil collection. Lately I've been loving the Clear Head blend from Aqua Oleum which includes Eucalyptus and has been helping to keep the dreaded winter sniffles at bay!

The Popcast | If you haven't discovered it yet, The Popcast is a weekly podcast hosted by Knox and Jamie who love to talk all things pop culture. Although I've been listening to this podcast for a little while now I still have tons of older episodes to listen to and lately I've really been enjoying catching up whenever I can.

Rountables etc. | Speaking of pop culture, award season is here once again and for me that means lots of roundtables to watch! For the past few years I've really enjoyed following the roundtable series from The Hollywood Reporter and this year I've also been watching a lot of Variety's Actors On Actors series.
