Identity

Here is the hub of my thoughts; ideas, experiences, everything and anything. If you have something you’ve been thinking about or something you’d like me to write about, let me know.

Purple Fro, Bro

Purple Fro, Bro

I've had a lot of people ask about my purple fro over the years and let me tell you, it's been a journey. I've experimented with bleaches and box dyes; had great successes and devastating failures and it's all been in the pursuit of the perfect purple hue to go with...

Out with the old

Out with the old

It's hard to know how to start this - it feels strange, like reaching out to someone you fell out of love with after giving them the silent treatment. But it's not you I fell out with, it's me. The truth is the past year has been so overwhelming. Pandemic aside, since...

We’re Open!

We’re Open!

One good thing about quarantine is that it's given me the space and time I needed to figure out how to set up a shop, take some pics of all the amazing things I've been making and collecting over the last year or so and actually get them up for sale! The Shop There...

Working at Home Tips

Working at Home Tips

What an utterly mad month this has been - to be honest, I feel like I'm in a totally bizarre dream. Tomorrow it would have been a month since I flew to a whirlwind week in Lagos, Nigeria; downloading more into my brain than was actually possible to digest, cramming in...

Organised Chaos

Organised Chaos

Before I came I really thought I was fairly well travelled. I’ve gone travelling alone - backpacked round South America by myself with no Spanish in my vocabulary. Jumped headfirst into new cultures with their music and food and language (where I can) but...

Happy Self Love V Day!

Happy Self Love V Day!

I didn’t think I’d ever get to a place where seeing myself in the mirror with lumps and bumps, scratches and scars wouldn’t make me immediately hide under layers of clothing or jokes. It’s been the LONGEST journey of self-acceptance and one that is ongoing.

Nailing It!

Nailing It!

I've been getting messages asking where I got my current nail varnish from so I thought I’d do a post about my nails! I am the absolute worst at biting my nails - I was a thumb sucker in my youth and then a chubby kiddy and then a non-committal smoker but the point is...

Starting Out Slow

Starting Out Slow

Wow, ok so let’s talk for a second about that last bit of 2019…I’m not gonna lie, it utterly wiped me out. The election was depressing - I don’t feel like many people bounced back from that in time for a full-blown Christmas cheer and Happy New Year… Don’t get me...

Farewell Facebook

Farewell Facebook

We've had or ups, we've had our downs, we've had our memories, we've had our frowns, but I think my time with Facebook is starting to dwindle. I always said that the main reason I use social media is for my work and that is absolutely true so now that my artist page...
