The STILL Awkward AF Later Teenage Years | Sounds of Me Part 3

Since my last post, I’m excited to tell you that I’ve actually recorded a podcast episode of Lyrical Life Disorganised Waffle with my lovely fellow writer pal, Dom G, who inspired me to create this series. I… Continue reading The STILL Awkward AF Later Teenage Years | Sounds of Me Part 3

The Awkward AF Early Teenage Years | Sounds of Me Part 2

It’s time for another instalment of my Sounds of Me series! Today, we’re entering into the painfully awkward years of early secondary school and believe me, it’s cringe AF. From hiding my love of Kylie Minogue and my trauma over Steps breaking up to discovering the world of emo music, it all happens. Awkward AF… Continue reading The Awkward AF Early Teenage Years | Sounds of Me Part 2

Childhood Bangers | Sounds of Me Part 1

It’s time for a brand new series of posts, and they’re all about music and nostalgia (don’t worry, they won’t be completely centred around Taylor Swift, either). I’ve been inspired by a fellow writer within the creative community to create this post, and that’s the fantastic Dom G. Dom is a published poet who writes… Continue reading Childhood Bangers | Sounds of Me Part 1

Another Four Podcasts You Should Listen To Right Now

Listening to podcasts has been a key part of my working from home day for quite a while now, and I’ll be honest, I’m worried how I’ll be able to keep up the momentum when I start my new job. In recent months though, I’ve realised that they’ve not just become part of my WFH… Continue reading Another Four Podcasts You Should Listen To Right Now

My Favourite Songs Right Now | World Music Day 2021

Last year for World Music Day on the 21st June, I shared a selection of songs I was currently loving at the time, and it seemed to go down pretty well. While my music-heart will pretty much always belong to Taylor Swift, believe it or not, there’s still plenty of songs by  other artists that… Continue reading My Favourite Songs Right Now | World Music Day 2021

My Favourite Songs Right Now | World Music Day 2020

Sunday 21st June was World Music Day, so I thought today I would honour the occasion with a special post. Music plays a pretty big part of my life, as I’m sure it does for all of us. I have playlists for pretty much everything - an anxiety playlist, a getting ready playlist, a cry… Continue reading My Favourite Songs Right Now | World Music Day 2020

The Best Podcasts to Listen To Right Now: My Four Top Picks

I was very late to the party with podcasts in that I didn’t start listening to them until about 2 years ago. Podcasts became a firm fixture on our morning commutes once I started my job working in Bath, making the 30-40 minute trip each way a little more bearable. Given the current situation (the… Continue reading The Best Podcasts to Listen To Right Now: My Four Top Picks

My Christmas Playlist

As my regular readers will know, most of my playlists on Spotify consist of Taylor Swift, Disney songs and music featured in Grey’s Anatomy. However, I have a Christmas playlist that I crack out every year when I’m putting up the tree, wrapping presents and just generally wanting to get in the festive spirit. While… Continue reading My Christmas Playlist

My Top Ten Disney Songs

Ever since I was a child, I have been obsessed with Disney. To be honest, I think it's only gotten worse as I've got older, especially when it comes to the films. As an adult you appreciate things so much more - the animation, the story, the message, but most importantly, the soundtrack. As a… Continue reading My Top Ten Disney Songs

My Anxiety Playlist

Do you have an anxiety playlist? By that, I mean a playlist of songs you always go to when you’re feeling anxious or panicky. Of course, my go to for literally any situation is Taylor Swift, but sometimes, I need to break out the big guns. Over the years, I’ve put together a whole playlist… Continue reading My Anxiety Playlist
