Forever Thankful

Today is Thanksgiving in America, and I am thankful for many things; I’m thankful for my housemate Gemma for taking such good care of me while I’ve been ill the last few days, I’m thankful for my university lecturers for accepting me as a transfer and for helping me to grow as a potential journalist/PR…

Migraine piercing: 6 week update

It’s been 6 weeks since I decided to try a new method of migraine control and unfortunately, it doesn’t seem to have worked. I got the daith piercing after numerous recommendations and research suggested that it would be a natural cure for migraines which was a welcome option after years of expensive prescriptions and constantly…

Royal Television Society Awards

On Tuesday night, I had the privilege to attend the Royal Television Society West of England Student Awards. I was nominated in the factual category for my documentary on the misconceptions of British cheerleading which I created for my undergraduate final project โ€“ From Bow to Toe.

Life with migraines

Itโ€™s been six years since a doctor diagnosed me with migraine attacks. It was my first year of university in Sheffield and I was suffering constantly, throwing up all the time with agonising pain in my head, needing every light off to ease the throbbing.

Let’s try this again

Auld Lang Syne

As the clock hit midnight on New Year’s Eve, I welcomed in 2017 on the dance floor of Remedies, my hometown’s only night club, coated in glitter, wearing sparkly, tinsel covered head boppers my mum had made me, singing loudly (and badly) with some of my closest friends and my older brother. It was magical….

Honey, I’m Home

  It’s been about 9 months since I lasted posted, which is terrible effort especially since, according to my stats, people are still reading this thing.

Work Experience with ‘Perfect Wedding’ Magazine

As I’ve previously mentioned, I’m trying to get a few different work experience placements within the journalism and public relations career field.

Feeling 22

‘Everything will be alright if we just keep dancing like we’re 22’ – Taylor Swift Last weekend I celebrated my 22nd birthday. I spent a wonderful few days in London with my mum, visiting the natural history museum, going for afternoon tea at Harrods and seeing Matilda the Musical at the Cambridge Theatre. I also…

Merry New Year

My unintentional Christmas holiday hiatus has come to an end; while I had every intention of continuing to post over my university break, I was so busy with friends and family that I didn’t have time to sleep, let alone write a whole blog post! So here’s wishing you all a very belated Merry Christmas…

‘The Reputation Economy’ by Michael Fertik

Just ask anyone who has ever lived in a small town about how long a reputation can last and how long it can color your interactions. ” In ‘The Reputation Economy’, Michael Fertik details how easy it is to leave an online footprint and how our lives can…
