The humble about section. Welcome! Honestly writing about myself makes me want to push my head into a wall but I’ll give it a try.

I am a 20 year old student, originally from a small town in the Highlands but now situate myself in Edinburgh for my studies. I am in my third year of university (studying English Literature) and in all honestly have overthought this bit far too much. So, if you couldn’t tell, this blog is going to explore my life and passions, while simultaneously trying to make myself not overthink everything I say.

I live in Edinburgh with my twin sister and my best friend, between us we all share a love of food, which hopefully (when we can move back in together) will be appreciated on this platform.

I’ve set this up during a global pandemic, not sure if that is overly useful information but I promise that is not my inspiration for any of this. However it did give me the chance to push myself to do something I’ve put off for the past year and a bit.

If anything I hope this provides a distraction for you all.

Much love,
