Getting To Know CATS! | News

This week, I’m introducing you guys to a charity that I’ve recently become involved with!

A couple of weeks ago, I came into contact with James & his wonderful charity, CATS.

The charity focuses on promoting awareness of cancer symptoms to young people, particularly students. As someone who had cancer as a teenager, I was keen to get involved to prevent other people being misdiagnosed like I was.

Why Celebrate Women’s Equality Day? | News

Today is Women’s Equality Day in the US – a day that deserves plenty of celebration and lots of conversation. On the 26th August 1920, women were granted official permission to vote by the US Government.

Although I live in the UK, I feel that an achievement for women anywhere is an achievement for women everywhere. We are still fighting sexism worldwide every day but thanks to the women of previous generations, we have a lot more rights than they did.

When I was younger, I definitely took my right to vote for granted. To put it simply, I wasn’t interested in politics at all. I didn’t really care who was in charge of the country or what it would mean for me because I had more important things to worry about like who was gossiping about who, of course! But everything changed for me when I went to university… Continue reading “Why Celebrate Women’s Equality Day? | News”

So, let’s take it back to the very beginning…

July Favourites! | News

August is just around the corner which means there’s only one real month of summer left!

The autumn months are definitely my favourite time of year for cwtching up & reading a book but I really love the warm summer evenings too. Everything’s just so much more easy-going in the summer, isn’t it? Continue reading “July Favourites! | News”

How Much Has Changed in 1 Year? | News

When I think about this time last year, it seems like a lifetime ago!

I was writing my final dissertation for my Masters & travelling between London & Wales to have meetings with tutors. It was pretty intense & exhausting!

Now I’ve been a graduate for seven months & I have my own business as well as working as a freelancer! It’s been a challenge & I’m still learning every single day but I’m really glad that I’ve taken this path and after a slow couple of months, I feel like I’m finally getting somewhere!

theBLOC Art Gallery – A Taster Session | Reviews

Last Friday, I was invited to a private viewing of a new exhibition at theBLOC art gallery in Swansea.

Located on the High Street, theBLOC is part of the Elysium Gallery and is dedicated to displaying the work of Elysium’s artists.

The exhibition is an extremely diverse and eclectic mix of mediums and the artists come from a range of different backgrounds. The one thing they have in common is that they all have a strong connection with Swansea and most have completed degrees in the city.

A lot of the artists have experimented with new ideas or mediums for the artwork that is on display and the results are both intriguing and thought provoking. Continue reading “theBLOC Art Gallery – A Taster Session | Reviews”
