My first memory of yoga is as a child, on New Years Eve of 2000 and something, when I distinctly remember googling yoga poses, printing them out (much to my parents dismay, ink is expensive, I now realise) and continuing to pretend that I could do the splits. At the time, I think I found … Continue reading My Yoga Journey
It’s International Women’s Day! I didn’t take part in the Women’s March last year, nor have I ever really taken part in a protest, which isn’t out of choice. I don’t purposely avoid doing so, but I’ve always found myself to be the last to know about these things, and to be totally honest, unable … Continue reading Books that have inspired me- International Women’s Day.
Hello! A short post this week, taking you through what are 5 of my favourite TV Shows. I hope this provides inspiration to anyone looking for something new to watch, particularly if you’re snowed in like it looks like I might be as I write this! All of them are period dramas (sue me) and … Continue reading Telly Inspiration- some of my favourites!
Hello internet! Long time no see. I would offer an excuse, if I had one, but I don’t, other than the fact that I had a post half- written in November (now null and void of course) that I never quite finished, and lost all momentum with this blogging malarkey. However, inspiration seizes me at … Continue reading Instax Mini 70 Review!
There's no doubt about it; audition days are stressful. I am sure that they are stressful when you live down the road from the location, never mind when you got up at 5am to get a early train to the Big Smoke, carrying various different pieces of sheet music, a pair of dance shoes and … Continue reading Thoughts on nerves
Today is #LoveTheatreDay and because it happens to be my one day off from the survival job (in a theatre) and I am missing out on the fancy dress shenanigans (boo), I have decided to honour the occasion with a blog post instead. So here we go... 5 reasons why I have always loved theatre: … Continue reading #LoveTheatreDay!
I've identified as a feminist for a long time (relative to my twenty-two years on the planet, I mean. I realise I don't speak with an infinite amount of wisdom). Whilst I, like I'm sure many other women of my age, remember the negative connotations of the word, and the pictures it evoked of bra … Continue reading In response to recent news…
I have always loved Autumn. Once you get past September, and the strange 'back to school' feeling that it still evokes in me, Autumn is a great time of year. Its the time where I get to bring out my fluffy scarves and big jumpers, my winter boots and slippers. It's the time for Bonfire … Continue reading Autumn
This is a ramble about my 'learning to drive' experience, and how it's made me less miserable because busses are -insert word I'm not willing to put on the internet-. I never thought I'd be a driver. I distinctly remember a conversation I had when I was about 16, in which I declared that I … Continue reading I passed my driving test!
I write from a bus stop somewhere in Birmingham, about to begin my 2.5 hour commute to work today via bus and train, courtesy of the great British driving test, my rants about which are probably best saved for another day (I can drive, for goodness sake!). However, on the plus side, I am acting … Continue reading Opening Night
