What have I been up to? It seems that summer in Edinburgh doesn’t begin until the Festival season in August. Posters have been appearing around the city this week, and I am bracing myself for full-on theatregoing.
In the midst of all of this, I have an announcement! I’m one of the authors of No Filter, an essay collection about what it means to be a millennial today. My essay is called “Millennial, You’re a Wizard: Hopefulness and the Harry Potter Generation”.
The book is being crowdfunded and published by Unbound, as soon as funds are raised!
One of the ways you can support the project AND guarantee a spot on this autumn’s Lumos Your Life course is to pledge. There are just two Lumos Your Life spaces available, at a $100 discount, plus you get a copy of the book when it comes out. Pretty good, right?

? I am all for combining your seemingly disparate passions on your blog [I mean look at my blog.]. Sarah breaks down the practicalities of blogging about two different things.
? 9 books to read to fill the Pretty Little Liars-shaped hole in your heart, aka 9 books I absolutely need right now.
? Decide to bring in more money, and more interesting advice from doing a spending diet and earning spree!
❤️ I am totally guilty of fixating too much on my narrative [I mean look at my blog], and not noticing pure experience.

Barcelona, Spain / Fit for a Heroine

One of the woes of being an international heroine is that my closest companions are scattered across the globe. Alas! Instead of bemoan the difficulties of being so cosmopolitan, I take long-distance friendships as a creative challenge. Especially as an introvert, favouring intimate connections in short bursts, a global girl gang is the way to […]
