About Me

About Me: Well I'm never too good at these sorts of things but here's the basics. I'm from my beloved north east of England but moved south to Southampton over six years ago and haven't looked back. I'm shy, an introvert, yet seem to be involved in all the gossip and agony aunt style conversations at work so I guess I'm pretty approachable! I'm a qualified archaeologist and secondary school teacher but I'm still trying to stumble my way through this vast void of unknowing we commonly call "your 20s". I'm very much someone who has realised that material possessions don't always bring you joy so I'm instead searching for spiritual fulfilment in whatever form that may take. I'm a big fan of feeding the thirst for knowledge, expressing yourself, and being truly passionate about well, your passions.

In 2017, I started a journey of more sustainable, low waste, and eco-friendly living, choosing to buy only second hand and ethical clothing, cruelty free beauty, skincare, and home-care products, and minimising spending on miscellaneous things that just end up gathering dust. Northern Blood is where I can share this transitional journey and express my hopes and dreams for the future, as well as my frustrations with various issues in society.

As an aficionado of personal style, a good skincare routine, nature, music, photography, architecture, video games, books, DIY projects, travelling, art, taxidermy, good food, yoga, simple self care, and trying your best to be an eco-friendly warrior, you can assume to see many posts covering such topics. I'm also due to become a mum in August 2019 and would like to invite you all along for the wild ride! Positivity is something that has never come naturally to this little raincloud, but I'm actively weaving it into my life and hopefully you will see it shine through, here.

Grab a hot brew, a biscuit or two, and enjoy! Thanks for stopping by.
