I’m Angie, a twenty-something mother, writer and artist.


MOTHERHOOD. I have a son and a daughter aged two and nine. I like to think I offer some form of comfort to all the Mums who swear repeatedly and use sugar for positive reinforcement.

CREATIVITY. I love finding other Mums who manage to squeeze some form of creativity into their days. I document my attempts to do just that here.

OTHER WONDERFUL HUMANS. I interview people. I ask lots of big questions like “What do you want to achieve before you die?” and “What message do you most want to pass on to your children?”. Read one of my favourite interviews with Florist Hannah Trott here. Visit Hannah’s Floristry site here.

MENTAL HEALTH: I’m always trying to find the best ways of managing my mind, from journalling to bedroom dancing to meditation. (Tricky).

PERSONAL & SPIRITUAL DEVELOPMENT. I’m fascinated by the idea of “fulfilling our potential” as human beings and quite what this means.
Listening to: How to Fail with Elizabeth Day podcast and We Can Do Hard Things with Glennon Doyle.
Reading: My Wild and Sleepless Nights by Clover Stroud and Steal Like an Artist by Austin Kleon.
Watching: The School of Life

BOOKS. Mostly non-fiction.

If this blog makes just one person smile; then I’ll feel it a success.

 “The one thing that unites the people I know who are on satisfying and meaningful paths is that they kept trying things, kept exploring, kept pursuing new opportunities, kept searching until they discovered their ikigai. And then from there they never stop figuring it out because they understand how absolutely crucial this is in creating a life worth living.”Rob Bell, How to be Here
