life :: self

Okay so, I should really be concentrating on getting things sorted for France…BUT there’s a current topic floating around the media that I just have to talk about. I’m entitling this post ‘self’ because that’s exactly what it’s going to be about. I was watching Loose Women a month ago now – youthful programme I know […]

*All views are my own. I’m also not a politics student nor a political expert, nor claim to ever side with a sole politician or political party.*  A big part of political rhetoric, and emotion-building rhetoric of late has been the use of: “We are not ______” When Manchester was bombed on the 22nd May […]

life :: from darlo with love

It feels like SO long since I got a post out to you guys, but the reasons why will all begin to unfold… Saturday saw me travel from west to east to visit my beautiful best friend Alice. Having not seen her for two months, I was desperate to go visit her, the girl who […]

career :: beginnings

When I think back to finishing secondary school at 16, I remember people acquiring “summer jobs” before we began sixth form/college in the Autumn. I never had any desire to work or have a job, let alone a summer job. I knew I did not want to sit in an office filing at age 16, […]

So I’ve hit that horrible point of summer. That nearly the end of August therefore nearly the end of summer phase which seems to result in me feeling blue. At the moment this feeling is heightened by anxiety as I’m stressing over sorting things to move away to France. So far, I’m doing okay handling […]

faith :: wonder

I couldn’t entitle this blog post in any other way than “wonder”. If you’re a Christian and into worship music, notably Hillsong, and you haven’t yet heard ‘Wonder’ Hillsong United’s new album, you need to get on it. My lovely friend Sophie introduced me to it on the way home from !Audacious Church in Manchester […]

After feeling cramped in the house doing university work pre-France, and my sister having to practically teach herself a GCSE Geography module over summer, we both decided to change up our study locations. So, we took the Metro from Radcliffe to Market Street, Manchester with the plan to study in Manchester Central Library. Post-delicious hot chocolate […]

So after a packed morning at Kings, Sophie dropped a beautiful bombshell… We’re having roast dinner at mine. Oh yes. I hadn’t had a roast dinner in SO long so I was so excited. And it was so good, and lovely to meet Sophie’s parents too, who are equally as bubbly and hilarious as Sophie. […]

faith :: church hop pt.1

It was about a month ago that my friend Sophie and I came up with the idea of having a 'Church Hop' Sunday. Then when we actually put our plan into action, we realised it was more of a 'Church Swap' than a 'Church Hop', since we were going to my church in the morning […]

love :: the greatest

One past experience has chance my outlook on love forever. I can't really say I was in love but who knows. Love is powerful and overcomes you, and makes you blind. You don't see how someone is crippling you until after a relationship ends. "Your intelligence intimidates me" is a line from a guy that I will […]
