Hello 2020

Well, 2019 certainly passed in the blink of an eye didn’t it? Happy New Year everyone! To say the least 2019 was definitely an interesting year for me.

How do you measure your happiness?

I was having a chat with one of my performer friends recently and she said she’d recently had a realisation. She has become aware that she measures her happiness on how successful she is at the time. Her recent epiphany has made her realise that her measure of happiness shouldn’t be based on how “successful”Continue reading “How do you measure your happiness?”

The struggle is real.

So, not that long ago I felt really sad. I wasn’t depressed or anything of the sort, but I was just feeling so deflated and down about the lack of acting work in my life. I’m a big believer that you have to work hard to achieve your goals, and that things don’t happen forContinue reading “The struggle is real.”

Acting is not a sprint, it’s a marathon.

I’m currently stuck in that awful acting limbo where I haven’t had a job for months. I’m not afraid to admit it and it definitely doesn’t make me a failure. However, it really is hard to stop yourself from questioning what on earth is going on. I have had auditions and I know I’ve absolutelyContinue reading “Acting is not a sprint, it’s a marathon.”

What do you actually know?

This past week has been a very interesting one for me when it comes to diabetes. Yes, interesting, exciting, and challenging. Let’s start at the very beginning… So, last week some of the wonderful Diabetes UK team Ethan, Jon and Ben popped round to my flat to film a new video. (I did briefly mention thisContinue reading “What do you actually know?”

The Waiting Game

I hope everyone has enjoyed the sun over this glorious bank holiday weekend! Unfortunately, seeing as I am part of the self employed world, I was working the entire weekend (of course!). I made sure that I spent as much time on my breaks outside as possible without getting burned like a little tomato! It’s safeContinue reading “The Waiting Game”

How are we still body shaming?
