What has 2020 taught me?

We are now officially in the 10th month of 2020 and it’s difficult to say that this year has been a particularly positive one. I hark back to a blog I wrote during lockdown about how the clock turned to midnight and it became January 1st 2020, and we were all so excited – yetContinue reading “What has 2020 taught me?”

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. My highlight of the year was obviously getting engaged to my gorgeous now fiancé! Something I wasn’t expecting in the slightest, but it definitely made my yearContinue reading “Hello 2020”

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.”

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?

Let’s just take a moment to remind ourselves what year it is… 2018. Yes, it’s 2018 and there are still so many things wrong in the world. We are unfortunately never going to live in a fairytale world where everything is perfect, but surely people can work together to change things – or so you’d likeContinue reading “How are we still body shaming?”

New flat and Diabetes UK

Today is March 1st and it’s snowing. I know, I actually can’t believe we’ve got this weather! Utter madness! However, I have been very lucky to not have to leave the house today as I have a day off and I have finally gotten round to writing another blog. About time. We are in ourContinue reading “New flat and Diabetes UK”

How to deal with nerves

Sorry for the wait for my next blog! I’ve been very busy recently, especially as we are moving house soon. We are currently surrounded by boxes and bags with our belongings all over the place. It’s safe to say there isn’t really any space in our room to breathe, let alone move around! I can’tContinue reading “How to deal with nerves”
