As Featured

I've been fortunate that since beginning my blog in 2014 I have been featured in a few places other than here!

As a Midlands based blogger, I have spread my horizons into other media outlets and websites, including the national newspaper Metro. I really enjoy the opportunity to write and discuss topics close to my heart. I wanted to share some of those features with you on this page!
