Two years ago I received my first big break into the industry I am in now after getting a last-minute internship at a popular women’s magazine. What I didn’t know at the time was what it would lead to and how it would take me to where I am now. Continue Reading
As the summer of festival season ends, it comes with a mix of emotions. Sadness that there are no more ridiculous stories, with cans of warm beer and glitter that stays in your scalp, as well as excitment to not be sleeping on a cold wet ground as your bag got soaked in the British downpour.
However for anyone wanting a great middle ground festival for amazing music with less of the craziness associated with Glastonbury and Reading then Isle of Wight festival is the one. Continue Reading
One thing I’ve learnt as I’ve become older is that not one person has their shit together.
Even your parents still feel like teenagers and are winging it when it comes to making life decisions. As is that girl who seems to be travelling to a different country every week, or the couple who have just bought their first house, or even your mate who just got an awesome promotion.

Despite my birthday falling in April, I’ve had a bad track record when it comes to April being a good month. In fact, if I remember rightly, two of my break ups fell into this month, so it’s always been a tumultuous month, to say the least. Continue Reading
So today I turn the dreaded quarter-of-a-century; the big Two Five. However, instead of frantically worrying about not being married/knocked up/editor of a magazine/rich and famous, I decided to work on a much bigger and exciting project; travelling twenty-five countries before I turned twenty-five.

All of the women I admire in their writing vary from publication to publication: Bryony Gordon at Telegraph, Caitlin Moran at Times, Laura Jane Williams at Grazia, as well as old colleagues from Cosmopolitan such as Sophie Goddard and Jennifer Savin. So when Daisy Buchanan, another favourite of mine, released her debut novel How To Be A Grown Up, it was instantly on my bedside table ready for a read. Continue Reading
As flights get cheaper, we all love the thought of being able to travel to some far away place for under £20, which is completely doable. However, we always forget about that little extra charge of baggage which can sometimes triple your flight if you’re not careful. Now I only ever travel with hand luggage to save on any rising costs.

On a stressful Monday in January, I received an e-mail inviting me to the launch of The Chapel Salon founder Amanda Dicker’s new lifestyle launch. I happily accepted and thought nothing else of it apart from another fun evening with canapes and learning about some new products. Yet instead, I came away feeling so close to this small group of women, feeling inspired and motivated by their outlooks on life. Continue Reading
Alongside working those long hours, cooking some kind of basic pasta dish, getting too drunk on a Wednesday with work colleagues and wasting half your paycheck on an overpriced weekend away to a Pinterest-worthy city, life admin falls short of things to do most days. Continue Reading
Phew. So this year hasn’t been great in theory; Brexit, break ups, and celebrity deaths (anyone else still not over Alan Rickman?) Continue Reading
The year 2016 has had some great moments; Andy Murray becoming number one for the first time, the Queen celebrating her 90th birthday.
Yet with yesterday’s news, now more than ever I’m scared for my future as a young woman.
Have you heard of Way Out West festival? Located in Gothenburg, the second largest city in Sweden (and no, not the home of Batman), I headed there to find out more on its 10th anniversary.
