In my latest blog for Northern Soul, I reflect on the terror attack at Manchester Arena with a renewed pride in my hometown. Continue reading Chips ‘n’ Gravy: “I am proud to call Manchester my home”
Ok, so I may not have been working like a dog 100% of the time, but I have had a busy few weeks, unfortunately resulting in a little case of blog-neglect. However, I’m back now and I have some pretty exciting news. In my brief hiatus from blogging, I’ve been pursuing a few new projects – let me explain… 1. There’s a new theatre/arts company in … Continue reading It’s Been A Hard Day’s Night…
On a slightly random note (and one of shameless self-promotion), I thought I’d take a moment to share this video with you all. I made it last week as a promotional video for my Young Enterprise company, The Beanie Shop. The beanies modelled in the advert are part of our latest range, ‘SURVIVOR.’ The most recent in a growing collection of slogan beanies, ‘SURVIVOR’ was … Continue reading Sisters Are Doing It For Themselves!

In fact, she had a kind of epiphany-style moment. It turns out, that no woman can escape … Continue reading The Under Wear What & Why Of It All…
In light of the few hours respite I’ve granted myself from exam stress, it’s probably a good time to blog. The last few weeks (and the ones coming up) have been something of a caffeine-fuelled haze. The truth is, I probably wouldn’t have survived the pressure of exams, combined with the annual Alderley Edge Festival and well, just life generally, had it not been for … Continue reading Frankie Says Relax
Tavi Gevinson (you know, the 11 year old who became a famous fashion blogger and now, aged 17, runs Rookie Mag) recently made a speech in Australia (which you can watch here > *** and please Lord, do, it’s quite fabulous) all about fangirling, creativity and oh-so-fetch teen angst. Right now, my mum thinks I’m working. She’s probably going to read this later and realise that I’ve spent … Continue reading It’s a kind of magic (you sung that didn’t you?)
