We Went To Naxos

We Went To Naxos

If you’ve been anywhere near my Instagram lately, you might have seen a lot of blue skies and a slight overuse of HUJI. I went on holiday! I actually got the recommendation from my hairdresser Michelle when I was moaning about how much I needed a holiday. This is the first time I’ve had a proper summer holiday without tying it into a convention or work event in years, and…

On Anxiety.

On Anxiety.

It’s currently 9:54pm on Sunday evening. There’s a festival going on down the road from my house and I can hear the music from a mile away and the drunk people wandering down my road. I don’t know if it’s because of the festival, or because it’s the first day of my period, or for no reason at all, but I have been sweating and panicking and crying all afternoon. I…

Is Love Island A Reflection Of Our Attitudes Towards Attraction, Dating and The Perception Of Women?

Is Love Island A Reflection Of Our Attitudes Towards Attraction, Dating and The Perception Of Women?

Love Island Like most eighteen to thirty-year-old British adults, I have been watching Love Island since the new season started four weeks ago. I’ll be the first to admit that I’m a fan of a well-crafted, slightly trashy television show; after I’ve spent the day working, I want nothing more than to curl up in bed and watch rich, beautiful people live out a not-too-deep, semi-reality on my laptop. Like…

When Did I Become So Afraid Of Change?

When Did I Become So Afraid Of Change?

You know what? Over the past couple of months, I really feel as though I’ve found my feet with my work/life balance. After the, quite frankly, trainwreck of a year where I gave myself no down days and made over a hundred videos, I realised I needed to get a handle on my schedule and my free time. Not only is it important for getting my eight hours a night…

Ten Things I’ve Learned Since Becoming A Full Time Influencer

Ten Things I’ve Learned Since Becoming A Full Time Influencer

In Summer 2016, I graduated and started job hunting while continuing to make videos. Somehow, the videos gained more popularity and I was able to sustain myself on my income from social media alone. It was, as they say, a happy accident – however doing Youtube/blogging/full time influencing has been a completely different kettle of fish to what I’d initially expected. I’d watched my friends follow creative, self-employed career paths…

Self Care In An Age Of “Fuck It, I’m Fine”

Self Care In An Age Of “Fuck It, I’m Fine”

I’m going to write some phrases and I want you to ask yourself if you relate to them. “So much of my energy goes on thinking about the next thing; what’s on the horizon and how to get there.” “I spend so much time working that I find it hard to make time for non-work socialising, and daily tasks like laundry fall off the end of my to do list.”…

The Podcasts I Can’t Get Enough Of

The Podcasts I Can’t Get Enough Of

It probably wont come as a surprise to you, but I love a good podcast. I’ll admit; when we came up with the idea for Banging Book Club, I wasn’t really into them. Once we’d recorded a couple of episodes, however, I figured it was probably best to have a proper look at what we were getting ourselves into. Serial became my gateway drug, and from there I’ve been getting…
