29 | Another Bloody Lockdown Edition

I can’t say I ever expected to have two lockdown birthdays in my lifetime, but here we are. Despite that, my 29th birthday on the 4th May was still a good one, and this year, since discovering and falling in love with Baby Yoda - sorry, Grogu - I didn’t even mind that people were… Continue reading 29 | Another Bloody Lockdown Edition

Lessons From Lockdown: 8 Things I’ve Learned One Year On

I’m writing this post on the 23rd March 2021. Today marks a year since Boris announced that we were going into lockdown here in the UK. At 12pm, there was a minute's silence to remember everyone who had lost their lives as a result of Covid-19 pandemic. I’m sure I wouldn’t be the only one… Continue reading Lessons From Lockdown: 8 Things I’ve Learned One Year On

A Letter To My 10 Year Old Self

Update - April 2021 I'm re-reading this post in 2021, just over a week away from my 29th birthday, so I thought now would be a great time to re-share. I initially wrote this post as we started to ease out of Lockdown 1 (FFS), following months of having Radio 1 - specifically, Greg James,… Continue reading A Letter To My 10 Year Old Self

Jewellery Box Stories

This particular post idea was inspired by a blog by New Lune, looking at life lessons and stories behind favourite jewellery pieces. Anyone who knows me will know that I love my jewellery. I’ve recently started branching out into wearing a few Marianne-inspired earrings (sorry, that will be the only Normal People reference in this… Continue reading Jewellery Box Stories

Tattoo Tales

I’ve wanted a… Continue reading Tattoo Tales

Summer Throwbacks

I originally wrote this post back in Summer 2020, when Covid-19 had fucked up pretty much all of our summers. Some of us managed to get away and enjoy a staycation or two, while others were lucky enough to get a cheeky trip abroad before they brought in quarantine rules - however, we did none… Continue reading Summer Throwbacks

28 | Quarantine Edition

The 4th of May was my 28th birthday. As I write this I’m feeling that post-birthday comedown and feeling quite sad that it’s over for another year. Spending my birthday in quarantine wasn’t particularly the celebration I expected, but overall, I had the best day. In spite of everything, it was one of the best… Continue reading 28 | Quarantine Edition

My Favourite Mama J Memories | Mother’s Day 2020

Tomorrow here in the UK, it's Mother's Day. I won't lie, it's going to be a pretty shitty one this year. For the first time since I was at uni, I'm unable to see my Mum tomorrow. In fact, I haven't seen her in nearly 3 weeks because she's been poorly and of course, with… Continue reading My Favourite Mama J Memories | Mother’s Day 2020
