How I Wrote My Dissertation in Three Weeks

Gig Review: Dermot Kennedy, Rough Trade NYC

This is a post I didn’t think I would be writing for a very long time. I’ve been absolutely itching to see Dermot Kennedy perform live for a very long time, ever since I heard Boston on my Spotify suggestions. Quite like Lewis Capaldi with a voice that you just…

Seven Hours in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

They are also grouped under a term called ‘BANJO Influencers’ but that’s a topic for another blog post.  So to see an influencer campaign with a social cause,…

How to Prepare Your Skin for a Long-Haul Flight

If you don’t remember, I took my first long-haul flight to Las Vegas last November and my face (to put it lightly) erupted. I stepped onto the plane with glowing, spot-free skin and stepped off the plane with whiteheads covering every inch of my face and my face twice its…

New Job, New Sector, New Me
