Describe yourself in five words: Drinking a cup of tea.

What dreams do you have for the future: Own five dogs, a few road trips under my belt, and to have met an elephant.

What advice would you give to your 16 year old self: Stop straightening your hair. And don’t cut it short.

I am in my twenties, and having completed my BA in English Literature from Queen Mary, University of London I am now studying for an MA International Relations in Barcelona. I spend my days in between cups of tea pursuing my hobbies of writing, Polaroid and digital photography, and travelling. I started this blog to a) pretend I am doing something with my life and b) to explore my own voice in my interests and opinions from the political to the personal.

When I was teaching English in Burgos (a beautiful city in the north of Spain), I was diagnosed with lupus. Lupus is an autoimmune disease in which the immune system is over active and attacks your organs. There’s no cure but it’s treated with lots of medication and a healthy lifestyle. Since my diagnosis I have used my blog to let out my frustrations and lessons learnt about lupus, so although this is not a health blog, it is a life blog – my life – so lupus gets mentioned a lot!

But if you’re also interested in reading about London and the U.K, Spain, amateur photography, feminism, travelling, rants, ponders and a few bad jokes here and there; all coming from a girl who comes from a small city in the north of England, then great, I like you a lot.
