  2. What’s the story behind your blog? I needed somewhere to escape to, to empty my thoughts and to create a project that was separate to my huge focus on all things career at the moment. I felt lonely at the time, and endlessly scrolled through blogs. Seeing how happy other bloggers feel through penning down their thoughts and feelings really inspired me to do the same.
