A British immigrant residing in Norway, often with my two cats adjacent and Yorkshire tea (or gin) close at hand.

Aside from being quintessentially stereotypical I'm a lover of words and putting more positive vibes in to the world. 

Let's share our journeys together.

September 10, 2017

A couple of weeks ago I was seriously getting my head down with my Secret-Project-X-Doesn’t-Even-Have-A-Proper-Codename-Yet book and, I'm not going to lie, it felt great.

I was trying my best to follow my own advice about setting goals then sitting and actually jus...

If you've known me for more than 5 minutes then you'll know that menstrual cups and all things periods is one of my favourite topics of conversation (yes, I'm that chick at a party).

This was not always the case. If anything, I was a period denialist who closed my eyes...

It seems pretty well accepted that a writer's world is, for the most part, or at least for the beginning, a shit storm of rejections.

To “put yourself out there”, to try and to learn means that we will have to face inevitable criticisms and refusals. But gosh darn that...

I've been holding out on sharing anything for a few days as I wait for some things to unfold (more on that in the future) and work on having a little patience with my efforts. With mixed results admittedly.

In between blog work I've still tried to keep on the writing tr...

Last week was my birthday so it was all about the “Treat yo’self 2017” and, since stationary = life, I treated myself to my favourite guilty pleasure.

A fun little diary (which comes with cute stickers, yes STICKERS), some motivational pens and a bookmark that co...

This week the fabulous ladies at Lunette released their new brand video which I had the opportunity to write the copy for.

I got to see the video (in its completed state) for the first time last week and my heart sung with glee. Of course, I’m bias. I love their brand,...

I want to share a dream I had last night (true story, folks!) so grab a hot beverage, it's story time:

We’re in a wooden house.

“We” because I’m not alone but I can’t tell you who I’m with. A man. A stranger but not. It’s amazing to me that our dreaming brain can create...

Firstly, small update: My application to register as my own business was accepted today! I am officially a legal business owner y’all.

There was something so thrilling about receiving the “Welcome new business owner!” email and I want to shout out to whoever writes the...

Yesterday I did A THING. It took me ten minutes, didn't require much effort (ok, not counting the translation support...thank you lovely boyfriend) and didn't cost me a penny.

It was small but it was big. Isn't that often the case when it comes to steps forw...

August 6, 2017

This is not the first step, nor the last. But I'm glad you're here now and we can share the rest of the journey together.

Last week I finished and published my new website. I laboured for hours every week for the past three months adjusting the layout, finding the perfe...
