The landscape of blogging, and online content creation, has certainly changed over the years - especially with the stratospheric rise of Instagram. Bloggers were once loved for being the girl’s next door, your online best friend, and having a relatable authenticity that differentiated themselves from the magazines and models – but that's not so much the case these daysRead More
Next month will mark the one year anniversary of me leaving my job in event management to work on my blog - and Instagram - full-time. Part of me can't believe it's been a year because it's seriously flown by so quickly, but a bigger part of me can't believe I've only been doing this full time for a year. Dare I say it, but I truly feel like this is what I should have been doing for years and years.
I've decided to start a monthly roundup post where I discuss what I've been up to that month - whether it's cool things I've done with friends or fun events I've been lucky to attend - but also, things I've been loving.

And so, forging friendships within the same industry happens a little differently.Read More
I've lived in quite a few places at this point in my life; London, Portsmouth, Cologne, London (again) and now Hampshire, but the city I've lived in that I hold most dear will forever be Brighton & Hove. With that in mind, whenever I get the chance, I make sure to go back - even if just for a fleeting visit. People often say it’s a London by the sea and I couldn’t agree more; I’m always entranced by its ever-changing nature and the permanent buzz.Read More
