Memories of Madrid
Exploring new territory has always been something of a challenge for me. I yearn to see the World and all of the beautiful places within it, but it is also an overwhelming prospect. So whenever I do venture beyond the UK, it is safe to say I am terrified.
LJ: The Aperture Amateur
Everybody has a passion in life that brings them copious amounts of joy. We all seek to have an aesthetic that we'd love to develop and mould in order to create something beautiful on a daily basis. For me, especially as of late, has been photography. Having a best friend who lives and breathes her photography inspired me to pursue and nurture my love for it.

Good Days With LJ: Week 2
Recently I have been reflecting on my life. Reaching the end of my early 20s and having no idea of what to pursue in life can be a daunting aspect. At one time I had it all figured out. I'd go to University, study Modern Languages, and work my way towards becoming an interpreter for the United Nations. What a dream. However, three months into my course it just wasn't meant to be and I left. Five years on, with a love-hate relationship with retail, I still to this day have moments of feeling defeated and scared about what the future holds, even when the present is what should matter.
Good Days with LJ
Everybody reaches a stage in their lives where sometimes finding the good in all things can become somewhat of a tedious task. With social media evolving into a growing platform for body-shaming, cyber-bullying, cultural slander, and just pure negativity, it has become increasingly challenging to plant seeds of inspiration when the very soil that we are lucky to have as a generation is tainted.
Do Not Disturb
I left the light on in my head To let you know that I am home, Glazed eyes Say otherwise So leave a message on my phone.
Closed for the Night
Curled up in a ball To close the space between My body and the Universe, Pull the sheets above my head, To block out the Sun,
