About Me

By day, I’m a Student Engagement Officer – looking at improving student engagement and experience in Higher Education. By night, when I’m not blogging, I’m usually found on the sofa relaxing or with friends!

The main reason why I started this blog was:

  • I wanted a hobby
  • I’m always up for giving things a try
  • It allows me to be creative

Though this is  a Lifestyle blog, it does have various categories as I’m open to all suggestions. For instance, I’m a bad cook but I’ll still try out recipes; I love crafts so nothing is more satisfying than trying out new crafts for gifts or home decoration.

Since starting this blog, I’ve pushed myself to the limits – from travelling alone to trying out recipes. But it’s given me a lot of opportunities too. In 2018, I co-founded HEY. Bloggers which unites creatives and bloggers in Hull and East Yorkshire. More information can be found via @hey_bloggers on Twitter and Instagram!

I hope you enjoy my content – if there’s anything you want to see – give me a shout!

Lots of love,
