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.

Festival Responsibility

Festival Responsibility

As festival season draws closer, I’m forced to ask - which ones are actually taking responsibility? Some of you may or may not have seen the recent call-out from Stormzy to Snowbombing Festival. Calling out the festival on Instagram Stories, Stormzy alleged that his...

It’s ok to not be ok

It’s ok to not be ok

I’m absolutely gutted to say that I won’t be able to attend Boomtown Fair to open the Poco Loco stage at Chapter 10 this year due to unforeseen circumstances. I’ve been looking forward to this show all year and I feel like opening that stage, my favourite of all, has been something I’ve worked towards for years. […]

RIP Aretha Franklin, Never Forgotten

RIP Aretha Franklin, Never Forgotten

The Queen has left us, Miss Aretha Franklin. Aretha you did so much for me you’ll never know. You showed me what it was to be black and proud growing up in a tiny town with not another brown face in sight. You taught me to sing You taught me RESPECT You taught me how […]

Committing to a Multi-Hyphen Life

Committing to a Multi-Hyphen Life

I feel quite emotional today. Partly because it’s the Tuesday after Love Saves The Day and my body is feeling more than a little abused, but mostly because I don’t remember the last time I felt this proud of myself. It feels weird to say. Maybe it’s a woman thing or a British thing that […]

Those Little Demons…

Be aware of those little inner demons that creep out when you least expect it. They tell you you’re not good enough, not strong enough, not brave enough, not beautiful enough – and they’re wrong. Last week was so hard, though I try my best to look like I’m keeping my shit together and see […]

New Queen Of Silence

New Queen of Silence So I went to go and see a throat and voice specialist yesterday and didn’t get the best news… I was told that I have a nodule on my vocal chords and it’s likely going to need surgery. My voice hasn’t been right for a while but I wasn’t expecting this […]

The toxic levels of misogyny

I wasn’t sure whether to write about what happened last night. Partly because I’ve been spending most of the day trying to forget it happened, but mostly because there’s a knot of shame in my stomach that I don’t really understand… I’m not one to be confrontational for no reason, I like to assume people […]

Dead Dick Pics

May I begin this post by saying – I am sure there are lots of lovely, respectful, wonderful men out there and this is not aimed at you normal people. Now that’s out the way I’d just like to ask a question – wtf is up with the males that I come into contact with? […]

Beautiful People

Boomtown has been and gone and what a festival it was! I will report on it more fully when the pictures have landed. But I will say this-I went expecting to get mash-up for four days (which I did) but I didn’t expect to embark upon any deep thoughts or realisations…that was a surprise. Allow […]
