Journal

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.

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...

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.

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...

Growing with Grief

Growing with Grief

I've been in two minds about whether to share this but it's mental health awareness day and to be honest the last couple of weeks I've not been in a good headspace at all. Strangely it all came to a head yesterday. At the beginning of the month, I looked out the bus...

The Project of Projection

The Project of Projection

There's a weird transition that's been happening in my life at the moment where people have started referring to me as a leader. It's true that I'm not afraid to start things I want to see done...but I've never tried to place myself in a leading role. Don't get me...

Summer Too Soon

Summer Too Soon

It's April and I'm sleeping with my window open. It's April and its 23 degree weather when I look at my phone. It's April and I'm sat at my computer in a strap dress looking outside at the beaming sunshine getting excited for festival season...and it's too soon. I...
