I’m Angie, welcome to the blog.
WHO ARE YOU AND WHY DO YOU BLOG?
I’m a twenty-something, working Mother of one and have spent the last five years balancing single Motherhood with exploring my career options through courses, internships and anything else I’ve had the chance to delve into.
My biggest joys are writing and performing, so I’ve tried everything from local journalism to PR internships, to month-long intense training with The National Youth Theatre.
I write to help make sense of the world and because it brings me a lot of joy.
WHAT IS YOUR MESSAGE?
Follow your curiosity.
Be bold, be brave, and live out loud.
“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
SO WHAT EXACTLY DO YOU WRITE ABOUT?
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?”.
MOTHERHOOD. I like to think I offer some form of comfort to all the other Mummies who swear and use sugar as a bribe.
MENTAL HEALTH. I am always trying to find the best ways of managing my mind, from journalling in the morning, to long walks in the fresh air, to…meditation (because it sucks at first, but when practiced enough times, it really does work in calming an anxious mind).
PERSONAL & SPIRITUAL DEVELOPMENT.

CREATIVITY. I am big on self-expression, and encouraging others to pursue what brings them joy. Life’s too short.
BOOKS. Just all of them.
THE POWER OF YOUR WARDROBE. Clothes mean something. They are the first thing you say to the world before you’ve opened your mouth.
It was 2015 and I was very into documenting my outfit choices, whilst simultaneously mocking them for how ridiculous they were. (White trousers and 5 inch heels with a toddler in tow?). I am up to #85 outfits and counting. – Plus when I’m old, I want to look back on these photos and think “F*** I looked good; so glad I have these photos to prove it..”.
If this blog makes just one person smile; then I’ll feel it a success.
