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?”

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”

Acting Equality

I took part in an amazing workshop the other day with a top British theatre director who had a chat with us all about equality in the industry. I have read many, many articles on this and realised that it was something I hadn’t actually spoken about in great detail. There are a variety ofContinue reading “Acting Equality”

Keep Calm, I’m Only Diabetic!

On Sunday my boyfriend, Bobby and I had the pleasure of attending ‘Keep Calm, I’m Only Diabetic’ at The Old Red Lion Theatre Pub in Islington. The show is a stand up performance by my new friend Jonsel Gourkan and will be touring more venues around the UK throughout the year. I have mentioned JonselContinue reading “Keep Calm, I’m Only Diabetic!”

Panto season is done!

So I hung up my panto hat for the year on Wednesday and headed straight back to Croydon. I was greeted by my gorgeous boyfriend with a bunch of roses in hand! Such a lovely gift and I was definitely pleased as punch to see him. It really is great to be back! The restContinue reading “Panto season is done!”
