Quitting a Full Time Job To Become A Freelancer

I had it all. Ok, maybe I didn’t have it all but I was doing pretty well by my generations standards. I had a degree, a career, a good salary, my own apartment and a very, very good set of secure future prospects… and I gave them all away. The metaphorical white picket fence was just over the horizon, yet the closer…

Expectation vs Reality – What you really need for uni

Standing in the checkout queue and Sainsbury’s I couldn’t help but notice the trolley behind us piled with pillows, a duvet and an assortment of kitchen equipment, a girl and her mother stood beside it, a tentative look of excitement on their faces.  “Ahh they’re shopping for uni supplies” I whispered to my mum, before my suspicions were confirmed by…

Let me introduce you to bouldering

One of the reasons I have been so absent from my blog is my new addiction to bouldering.

In 2018 I made myself accountable and not only wrote my resolutions…

It’s 6 pm on a Thursday night, my phone buzzes and I open a text from my mum – she’s asking if I want to come home at the weekend to help move the hay in for winter, clear the muck heap and have a big tidy-up bonfire. To some people that may seem like a lot of hard work…

Simple and easy 3 ingredient face mask – in collaboration with Seatox

My skincare routine is very simple. I have very sensitive skin; perfumed products, drug-store face masks and complicated chemical ingredients leave my skin flakey, irritated and unhappy. I like to use minimal products and keep them as pure, natural and nourishing as possible in order to avoid flare-ups and to maintain a clear complexion. Those cute looking fruity facemasks that you…
