I thought it would be fun to write a few posts about interesting niches and activities I’ve stumbled upon over the years. There’s lots of inspiration to take away whether you’re looking for a new hobby or a starting point for a creative project. This article is a shout out and high five to all […]
Whether you’re jumping on a plane for your next adventure or just need a way to organise all the crap in your bag, a good cosmetics bag is a useful accessory. When going through airport security, I always find it super useful to keep all the liquid and bits that need checking separate to the […]
I’m having a little social media detox at the moment to give some space to focus on creating new creative projects and writing more. I know social media has a negative impact on me, so I’m being wise about how I use it. I’m still using Instagram daily, because I love my carefully curated feed […]
It’s been a little while since I wrote a beauty post and I’d forgotten how much of a minefield shopping for genuinely cruelty free & vegan cosmetics can be. Whenever I have a choice, I always choose cruelty free with make-up and almost always choose vegan, I’m not perfect after all and it does become […]
You know I’m passionate about supporting small and/or local businesses in as many categories as I can manage. It’s not easy when there’s so much choice and the easy option is to hit the high street or the big internet companies and pick the cheapest or most convenient choice at any moment 24/7. Since the start of having our purchases and service choices influenced by social media and the internet, the dynamic has changed extremely quickly and is still changing now. Once upon a time it was simple to start a new business, pop it online and share it among your network and you’d probably make ends meet, it’s still easy to set up a new business but to have it successfully continue to pay your bills is a bit more challenging in a modern day, social media driven world. It’s becoming increasingly difficult for small business to stand out from the crowd, the ones with the biggest marketing budgets continue to win and the small ones are struggling to keep up. Changes in the economy and politics alongside all this add other pressures to the mix and is causing many small businesses to have to close down or find a chunk of money from somewhere to keep things going.

If you don’t follow me on at least one social media platform than you don’t know this already. So, to most of you I apologise if I’m boring you with yet another post about this, but I’ve got shit to sell and bills to pay, as I’m sure many of you can relate to. This Summer, Miz and I started a new business, Food Scouts. It’s evolved several times since we first had the idea to do something food related, but we’re now happy to present you with an alternative streetwear apparel brand with designs inspired by food and punk rock. Bear with me, there’s more to it.
Can you believe that I only started watching Twin Peaks properly this year? Despite been a film and TV nerd for my entire life and spending 3 years studying the subject at Leeds Uni, I somehow, managed to miss out on this hype. I think I tried to watch the first episode a few times […]
This is an unusual anniversary to celebrate, today it’s been a whole year since I posted a selfie to my personal social media. Yes, I’ve still been in photos, but none of my usual posy, look at how fabulous my make up and colourful hair is type of post that I was so regularly sharing. So, why have I been selfie free for a year and what did I learn? Here’s some musings from me sin selfie.
