Why English Grads Should Do Freelance Writing


Unkategorised

As of today I have been freelance writing for a whole year. Just before this day last year I was a fresh-faced English graduate only able to secure a couple to a few shifts a week from the Saturday job I landed at sixth form. When I received the “you’ve got the job” email, sat […]

How to Stop Feeling You’re Behind


Unkategorised

I wrote about how to be a productive morning person on Wednesday and, shortly after, was looking through The Anna Edit blog and stumbled across THIS post about what to do if you’re feeling behind with work. As usual, Anna spoke to me on a million different bloggy levels. She is my organisation inspiration and […]

How to Be a Productive Morning Person


Unkategorised

I come from a family of morning people. In my house, a sleep in means waking up at seven in the morning and waking up past eight requires a disapproving glare. Admittedly I am not as devout to seven AM as the rest of my family; if I’m honest, however, the rest of them should […]

Three Films


Unkategorised

I used to spend the majority of my pocket money on DVDs. Nothing thrilled me more than going to ASDA and buying a film I’ve wanted to purchase for forever before it finally was priced at £4. I still own every one of these films and could never ever imagine getting rid of the likes […]

An Ode to the Disorganised


Unkategorised

I’m an organisation freak. Alongside my ability to cross one eye while moving the other (Britain’s Got Talent, eat your heart out), I consider my organisation my most valuable skill. Although I don’t think my family who have to tolerate my sometimes frequent alarms do- I’m working on it, mum; I promise. Once upon a […]

Why Straight People Need to See Love, Simon


Unkategorised

As a straight person, it was hard to ignore the niggling thought in my head telling me there was something toxic in the floods of tears that attacked my face throughout seeing the film Love, Simon. I wiped away yet another tear as the credits rolled and I turned to my boyfriend. “Did you like it?” He […]

An Ode to Freelance Writers


Unkategorised

When I’m not waitressing or selling kitchenware, you’ll find me freelance writing next to a cup of tea and a burning candle. Yup, it’s as brilliant as it sounds. Freelance writing is, however, a funny sphere when you’ve not navigated it before, nor been given too much advice about it. I’ve been writing for a […]

Surely Time’s Up?


Unkategorised

Of course we need to be celebrating women all day every day, but there’s nothing like International Women’s Day to help a feminist smile as soon as their alarm goes off. (Well, after snoozing it three times and finishing their second cup of tea of the day.) It’s on days like these when we see […]

Three Products for the Sleep Deprived


Unkategorised

For the last half a year I’ve spent my nights sleep-working. Let me explain. For reasons unknown to me, about four times a week, after I get in from work, I go to sleep and find myself in a weird sleepy trance whereby I am “working” in my bedroom. I have previously “pulled pints,” “set […]

The Orange Jumper Edit


Unkategorised

Back in university─when I ate spaghetti and sausages from a tin, purchased Lidl’s version of Malibu and ate packed lunches while friends bought food from the uni cafe─I shopped until my bank balance had no more room left to drop. Despite being sensible in the food and drink department, I was not a girl that […]
