How amazingly positive is Exeter Life’s cover this month? I’m proud to write for them. This month I have a feature on ethical and sustainable children’s clothes store, The Thrifty Stork, published – please have a read here. Stay safe everyone X
In this month’s Exeter Life magazine I have an interview published with fellow Exeter mum, Emma Royle. Emma opens up to me about the horror of discovering her baby had cancer and how she’s running the London Marathon to raise funds for CLIC Sargent. It’s one of the most touching interviews I’ve done for a while – Emma is an inspiration in truest sense of the word and I hope the piece works to generate extra vital funds for CLIC Sargent, who help families when they need it most.
One of the features I have in the January 2020 edition of Exeter Life is a piece on the newly opened Exeter Craft Hub, where I discover the communal creative craft space the city has been missing. Read my article here.
I love a bit of tech writing and reviewing so it was a pleasure to do some more review work for T3.com. In this piece I highlight the best NAS drives (Network Attached Storage) on the market. These beauties do a lot more than store files like a traditional hard drive – they are a personal cloud service and media server. Take a look here.
In this month’s issue of Somerset Life magazine, which you can read online here, I meet four very different green businesses who are each making a positive environmental impact.
Exeter’s Jenny Cahill lives by an impressive mantra of Rethink, Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Repair, Recycle, Rot and is getting continuously closer to a zero waste lifestyle. She’s become affectionately known as a ‘real life womble’ – I interviewed her for Exeter Life magazine recently and found her to be truly inspiring. If you’re looking for ways to reduce the waste you create, Jenny shares lots of advice with me in the feature below.
I love Somerset even though I now live in Devon (which I also love!) so I was delighted to be asked to write the Autumn cover feature for Somerset Life Magazine (read the whole magazine online here for free). In this piece I share my secrets for a perfect Autumn in the county – from walks in the sunshine and fossil hunting to a trip around the solar system…
In the October issue of Somerset Life magazine, which you can read here for free, I talk to Kim Williams about here life in rural Somerset with a herd of 21 alpacas…
Every so often I meet someone who floors me. Emily Monk, of Forage and Find Me is one of those people. I met her on a gloriously sunny day on Exmouth beach to find out about her funky eco jewellery, made from foraged materials. I soon discovered we weren’t going to spend the whole afternoon discussing making techniques and environmental impact, rather her mental health and how her new businesses literally saved her, following a suicide attempt. Her story is very poignant, especially for any women who may have suffered from Post Natal Depression. It wasn’t a happy story to tell but it has a strong ending with a bright future and it’s very real. My feature was published in the August Issue of Exeter Living magazine – you can read it below.
