We’ve come a long way, Télégramme and I. From issue one, with it’s scrappy layout and terrible fonts to issue six, with it’s sunny yellow theme and (I think) clean, elegant design. www.hellotelegramme.co.uk Issue six featured five fantastic photographers:  Joe St Pierre, Fabrizio Mingarelli, Tuane Eggers, Irina Munteanu and Roslyn Julia 🙂 It also featured themes: Golden Hour, Open Space and The Sea. If issue four was the concrete issue (all stark lines and empty buildings) and issue five was focused on people then issue six is without a doubt a celebration…Continue Reading “Télégramme Magazine – Issue 6”

In November I set 5 goals for myself. I’ve been finding myself constantly swimming uphill lately – forever with a large list of things I “must make time for” but never actually seem to manage to. So I wrote myself a small list, of things I felt should be a priority for me. I managed to tick off four of those five things (and I only missed the last item “go on 5 walks” by one walk, so that’s not so bad), so I’ve decided…Continue Reading “Monthly Goals: December”

Dear Google, Thanks for making my job a hell of a lot easier. Thanks for also believing that which mascot a university has is one of the most important bits of information to display in search results. Everyone loves a bit of whimsy.

Alternatively titled: I’d like to be a Christmas pudding, please. I don’t know where this (what can only reasonably be called an) obsession came from. Honestly. I like Christmas pudding but it’s not my favourite part about Christmas by a long shot. All of a sudden tho the shops seem to be full of amazing novelty goods and more than anything they are full of Christmas puddings and I want in. So I thought I’d put together a little list of the favourite pudding related items…Continue Reading “Festive Fancies”

Ticking off this goal was doubly special as it was on my 30 for 30 list and my Life List. (I added it to my 30 for 30 as motivation to do it, really – it worked surprisingly well!) It’s been on my mind for a long time as something I’d like to try, but all the people I know who already do it are skinny minxes with six packs and frightening resolve – neither of which I possess. I was this close to chickening out (a…Continue Reading “30 for 30: Take A Pole Dancing Class”
