Letters of Note →
A little something I stumbled upon. This guy set up an awesome blog/website dedicated to celebrating writing letters and has complied an awesome collection of particularly interesting ones. Many written by famous people or about thought provoking subjects. For example, one written by Winston Churchill’s wife, one by Axl Rose, some are hilarious like the ones by John Cleese, some sad. I want...
Begin as I intend to go on... →
This was linked to me earlier today. I think its quite a nice post to begin on. Its a little article about why we shouldn’t seek other people’s approval. Pretty relavent starting a little blog! Hopefully it will remind me to write what I want and how I want and not think too much about what people will think about it! Give it a little read. Go on. You know you want to. ;)
Hello again :)
I don’t think anyone reads this blog but for those that do stumble across this, I haven’t posted for a really long time. My bad. I started a new job and its been a little mad. I’m back now… With a very clear idea about what I’d like to blog about. I’m hoping to keep it all pretty positive and all about the good stuff going on that I discover! There is so much...

Penny Red's take on the riots →
OK, so I want to start with this because, via twitter, it was one of the first pieces I read about the riots that really struck a chord with me before everyone else got to this point of understanding. It’s apt and insightful and full of heartfelt concern. Her way with words and her ability to cut to the heart of the situation with such clarity makes this the piece that pretty much sums up...
UK Riots 2011
These riots that took place in my lovely home city it what made me decide to actually get on this blogging business and stick to it. I love london. Which it was horrifying and deeply saddening to see it being attacked by some of its own and then the aftermath, debate and disection of the events which seemed to pour shame over London, and perhaps the UK as a whole. Over the last few days I have...
Nothing is impossible... →
So… before I really start posting topical stuff, I want to re-iterate my belief that nothing is impossible. Whilst helping my lovely boyfriend look for places to work, I stumbled upon the Saatchi & Saatchi website. If you haven’t heard of them, they are a massive advertising agency that has done some massive campaigns like the Walls one with the wierd dog rapping in a jewellery...

Curious and Concerned
I’ve been meaning to get a little blog up and running for a while now and have never really found the motivation, patient or discipline. Things have changed for me this week after seeing the London riots unfold and the aftermath disected. It has reminded me that if you have a voice and you want it to be heard the only way to do it is to put yourself out there, and this is me doing just...
