The Girl and her Career

This week I wanted to talk about careers, particularly how they can on identify as being isolated from ‘FUN’ and end up making you feel like your path to success is a lonely one. Although I love being a writer, over the years, I’ve felt as though I could never mix my friends into work. […] Read more…

The Pressures on Women: Relationships

Unfortunately, it seems as women we inadvertently have these pressures forced on us by society. Why is it when dating, we’re supposed to make these (sometimes life-changing) decisions within five dates? It’s like we’re programmed into making an executive decision to enter into a relationship there and then, it’s not something we can choose later […] Read more…

How to be a Boss Babe with… The Wonders of…

I often wonder what it takes to be a real ‘boss babe’ and the journey behind a success story. Meet Yasmin Kurt, a twenty-something who recently went out on her own to start her own events business ‘The Wonders of…’. The full-time receptionist based in Cardiff, who runs a successful monthly blogger networking events business […] Read more…

To Travel Hopefully…

Someone once told me that travelling was just a holiday and I couldn’t help but wonder what they meant or how they came to that conclusion, especially when they hadn’t been on a plane. When I think of the word itself, what does ‘holiday’ really mean? To them, they thought traveling was something that was […] Read more…

What now?

So, it’s been a few weeks since I’ve graduated and honestly, it’s been scary. I think when you’re applying for a university you imagine it’s a done deal, that you’ve secured a job when you graduate but quite often (as I’ve realized), the reality isn’t quite so much of ‘done deal’. The reality is when you […] Read more…

What Scotland have Taught Me About Life

As I stepped off the platform at Edinburgh Waverley, Drake’s voice in my ears singing, “trips to wherever feels right, doin’ it all just to feel things”, crowds of busy feet scrambled towards the exit sign- all excited and tender-footed as I felt arriving in a new country that was my ‘places to visit’ list. I […] Read more…

The Royal Feminist

Since American actress Meghan Markle married Prince Harry last weekend, there’s been this confirmation of a change in the air to the royal family’s image and I suspect not only to British women but women everywhere. The whole ceremony was about the ‘power of love’, a real metaphor the was pumped and repumped into the […] Read more…

Fresh out of Uni, Fresh Out of Ideas

It must have been a week ago, I was sitting in my final e-Publishing class when my tutor asked the class, “name one thing you’ve learned from e-publishing.” I looked around at the quite frankly gormless faces surrounding me when I threw my arm up in the air and said, I don’t know about anyone else […] Read more…

Fresh out of Uni, Fresh out of Ideas

It must have been a week ago, I was sitting in my final e-Publishing class when my tutor asked the class, “name one thing you’ve learned from e-publishing.” I looked around at the quite frankly rows of gormless faces when I threw my arm up in the air and said, I don’t know about anyone else […] Read more…

How to Be Single

I think out of all of the romantic comedies I’ve snuggled up to and the relationships I’ve been in, at the age I am right now I feel the happiest I’ve ever felt being perfectly alone and that’s down to one thing – knowing myself, and I don’t think you can do that in a […] Read more…
