Seven Facts About Me

So I have been blogging about various beauty, fashion, event, travel topics for a few months now - but I realised I haven't really talked much about my life outside of that. I don't want to go on about myself so this will be a rare post, but I guess it might be useful for people to know the way my life works and what motivates me to do the things I do, and like the things I like!

So here it goes;

1. I used to play the drums, guitar, and keyboard, and I have vocal lessons still. I was never the best musician but I do love music lessons, and always walk out feeling lifted and happy!

2. I have the most daft kitten called Jives (see right), it's probably my own fault since I gave her such a silly name.

3. I manage an enterprise centre called 'Ignite' in Peterborough, the UK. We support people under the age of 30 to set up their start up business ideas with free office space, mentoring advice from business experts, help finding funding, and lots more. It's really rewarding and I work with lots of really interesting people. It's inspired me to consider so many start up ventures of my own!

4. I'm currently learning how to produce music as well as just DJ as I want to broaden my horizons :)

5. I go to London at least once a week now, but I never tire of the buzz and excitement of it, and like a lame tourist pretend I live there. I would love to live there, but I kind of prefer it this way because I'm close enough to still get to everything, whilst still remaining super excited with the vibe of the place every time I go. I'd hate to lose that.

6. My boyfriend is really really tall. Honestly he is nearly 7 ft. I like that because I'm actually quite tall for a girl, so it makes me feel like I'm an average height. He also often gets mistaken for Jesus.

7. I'm rehearsing weekly to be in a play that my friend wrote, which is being published and performed later in the summer. It involves talking in a northern english accent, which is gradually improving (at a slow rate, I am terrible with accents).

I also produced some theatre of my own last year, where I directed a play I wrote about sex trafficking, which was based as a performance inside a residential house (one in London, and one in Cambridge).  Actors and actresses portrayed stories of real women who had been sex trafficked into the UK, and the audience walked round the room as an installation. I'd love to do it again one day if I find the funding! Visit Ophelia Circus, my website, to see more!

  2. One interesting fact about me that I'd always tell people is I have a Weimaraner dog named Ebba. She's not a "dog" dog (does not like other dogs) but a "cat" dog. She'd love to meet your Jives so they could share their silliness with each other. Thanks for sharing!
