Who Am I?

Hi, I’m Soph and this blog is my little slice of life on the internet. I’m in my 20s, I went to University of Birmingham and my silly Labrador is my best friend. The way to my heart is definitely through food and drink – think Parisian macarons, rare filet steak or afternoon tea and lots of lovely gin…

I’ve been happily blogging on and off since I spent my Erasmus year living in Paris in 2016. At first mostly my Mum read my posts, but I loved writing about how different life was as a student abroad with a passion for pastries and terrible French pronunciation. I wrote about a Parisian night out, about my struggles with my accent, about my top tips for any students starting a year abroad. Sharing your opinion on the internet can of course be a little daunting but I found that the more I wrote honestly about my experiences, the more I connected with other students experiencing the same things. You can find all my Erasmus themed posts under the ‘Paris‘ header.

I relaunched my blog in February 2018 during my final year of University, mostly as a way to avoid writing my essays. I decided that writing is a passion of mine and that it is something I definitely want to pursue – so, of course, this requires practice. Alongside my final year studies, I wrote about the importance of #selflove, about the meaning of my degree, and about how to be supportive to any sleep-deprived, panicked final year student you may have in your life. You can find all my University related posts under the ‘Birmingham‘ header.

Now, I work in PR in London, and I’m attempting to navigate the big, bad world of employment and all the champagne launches that come with it. It’s harder than it looks.

Writing is a passion of mine and you don’t become a brilliant writer without some practice! This blog is a good form of procrastination, but I also hope it’s helping me find my voice – if you read a post and love it, or hate it, or want to discuss more, please get in touch.

I am available for guest posts and freelance journalism. Here’s a guest post I’ve written for the lovely Ruth, about why you should chose an Art History degree.
