Becoming a writer for Charlie feels like coming home. A group of writers who write from the heart. Honest, real, inspirational stories. They write what they really feel, think and believe, without stopping to worry about being judged. Charlie is the breath of fresh air that the world needed.
You can read all of my Charlie articles here, however I highly recommend reading the whole site.
I enjoyed science in school but haven’t kept in touch since then. The I Fucking Love Science site is a superb way to catch up on lost time and let science back into your life. Follow them on facebook and before you know it you’ll be up to date on all the latest quirky science developments.
Another fun fact about the site: this whole project has a super young and clever lady boss (born 1989).
Bustle was my first writing job ever. I always enjoyed writing down my ideas but never imagined that someone would pay me to do it! Marie Southard Ospina took me under her wing and taught me the ropes. I learned a lot about myself in that time. I pushed myself to do things I never thought I would dare.
You can find all of my Bustle articles here.

Mum’s days is a fab parenting and general all round life blog run by the wonderful Hannah Parker.
“Every Mum’s Day is split into bits of time and every Mum will tell you that there aren’t enough of those bits to get everything done. But we do what we can and we do it the best way we can. Sometimes it’s a bit naff because we were pushed for time/knackered after being up all night with our precious angels/trying to do 5 other things at the same time/etc… but the point is we did and always do try our best!”
Bouquet of buttons is a lovely sewing and style blog, I will let Lieke introduce herself:
“I like beautiful people, beautiful on the inside that is. I like eyeliner, red lipstick, wearing skirts, the smell of fresh brownies, people who smile randomly on the street, drying my freshly washed hair in the wind, hugs, reading in a hot bath with too much bubbles, walking in the city at night,…
And of course I love my sewing machine and all my supplies.”
