Being ‘above the fold’ and why our audiences are just like us

A couple of weeks ago, I sat down to a colleague to chat press releases. The idea was to make sure I was structuring them correctly, that the right information was in the right places and to make sure that I was, well, toning down my personality a couple of notches in them. via GIPHY…

#CommsSchool: Blogging 101

Evening all and I hope you’ve had a happy Thursday. A little bit late to the party, I’ve just finished watching the first #CommsSchool webinar. It was the kick up the arse I needed if I’m perfectly honest. It’s taken me so long to finally find a career that I’m enjoying, suits my skill-set and…

first impressions / a bloody good job

It’s day two, so this may likely be a highly premature review but I’m attempting to make the switch. Last month, initially pissed off at the price of sanitary products (but further spurred on by an ever-increasing wish to try and preserve the only planet currently available for us to live on), I bought a…

27

It’s dawned on me that I’m far closer to my 30s than my 20s. I’ve started reading articles like ’30 things to learn by the time you’re 30′ and ‘Get out of these habits before your 20s end!’ but my age nor some stupid Buzzfeed list will define me, I assure you. If the last…

End of Year Resolutions

As we edge ever closer to the end of November, it’s almost the time where we slump into chocolate-and-constantly-repeated-Harry Potter film-induced coma. There are 5 weeks until New Year’s Day, and I am determined not to fall into a trap of ‘f*ck it, it’s Christmas’ throughout December and into January when the ‘new year, new…

F*ck off, I’m a hairy woman…

A 2007 hit(?) BBC Three series, and probably the name of my autobiography, if I were ever to write one. Now I’m hairy, mainly for 2 reasons: 1) When you’ve been with your partner for 5+ years, the urge and need for hair removal tends to wane dramatically. 2) Because I have a condition called…

Copenhagen, Denmark – Day 3 (oh and huge NSV!)

Day 3 may have been one of the best days of my life so far. I felt like a kid again – eating a doughnut for breakfast certainly helped. In the centre of Copenhagen Central train station lies a less-than-stereotypically-Danish branch of Dunkin Donuts and opposite that was what is actually stereotypically-Danish – a 7-Eleven. I…

Copenhagen, Denmark and Malmo, Sweden – Day 1 and 2

The 0130 alarm clock was disorientating and upsetting but was worth it in the end. We jumped in the car for the long drive to the airport (I say long drive, I was asleep for most of it so it felt pretty quick to me). The usual airport kerfuffle but dramas for our departure –…

Humblebrag

You know what? I don’t humblebrag any more. I f*cking brag-brag. If it’s worthy of slipping into a conversation in the first place, or concealing it as something mundane so you can talk about it, then just talk about it. I used to shy away from talking about myself and my achievements (I still do…

Size Chart

Dress sizes; I’ve dropped 4 on the bottom and 2 up top. Am I ecstatic? Well, I was, until I wondered to myself ‘actually, what difference does it make?’ Of course, I’m pleased with the fact that my body shape is changing. I hear wind chimes tinkle and feel incredibly smug knowing that my clothing…
