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


MOTHERHOOD. I have a son and a daughter aged one and seven.  I like to think I offer some form of comfort to all the Mums who swear repeatedly and use sugar for positive reinforcement. Despite my son being a year old, I still exist in a weary sleep-deprived state 75% of the time. Read a bit about 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 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 (which I still find tricky…very tricky).

Listening to: How to Fail with Elizabeth Day podcast.

Also: Eckhart Tolle, Lewis Howes, Marie Forleo, Chase Jarvis and Tim Ferris.
Current favourite Lifestyle blog: A Rosie Outlook 

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.

BOOKS. Just all of them.

MY WARDROBE. It was 2015 and I was very into documenting my outfit choices, whilst simultaneously mocking them for how ridiculous they were.

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
