I am so fortunate to know so many incredible women from so many walks of life. Some of you are businesswomen, running your own companies and building your own empires, and I'm so proud to be one of you. We are changing the face of our industries, and I can't wait to see what we've all … Continue reading A letter to all the women in my life
Lately, I seem to have been suffering from a major confidence crisis. It feels like I'm going round in ever-decreasing vicious circles of not being able to finish things, which doesn't help with the whole confidence thing, which gives me less motivation to finish things, which doesn't help with the confidence...you get the point. Circles. Decreasing. … Continue reading Self-Employed Problems.
I haven't been on my personal twitter since the 12th January, and for me that's a very long time. In the grand scheme of things, my personal twitter is pretty insignificant. I have 1000-odd followers - a mix of friends (old, new and former), ex-colleagues, people I've met along the way...and a good handful of … Continue reading Getting the heck off Twitter
NOPE UGH FUCK THIS Sometimes eloquence doesn't quite cover it...
A while back (read: almost 8 months ago) I wrote a silly little post called A selection of things I've considered since quitting my job. Truth be told, I actually knew what I was planning on doing at the time, but wasn't in the position to actually share it yet - so I figured I should kickstart my … Continue reading A selection of things I’ve actually done since quitting my job

Something making me angry? Take it out on the piano. Feeling sad? Write it into some harmonies. Play some Debussy. Improvise something. This was … Continue reading Emotion dump // music.
If quitting my job has provided me with anything, it's thinking space. And if thinking space has provided me with anything, it's a list of things that I've considered since quitting my job - from the ones that are quite likely to happen (Odeon card, ear piercing) to those that are...slightly less likely (Brighton, Birmingham). … Continue reading A selection of things I’ve considered since quitting my job
Almost exactly two months ago, I handed in my notice at work, taking something of a leap of faith. Taking risks has never been my strength, but my time at my former job was bookended by just that. I was initially rejected for the job, but took the risk of calling and telling them they were … Continue reading On taking risks
It's been 6 months since my last post. Well done, Lizzi. Good work, fantastic regular blogging, round of applause! Somehow, we sailed through 2015 and seem to have landed at the end of January 2016. I've had 6 months of ideas float into my head...and then vanish again before I have a chance to put … Continue reading Resolutions.
I'm writing this from my seat on a flight to Copenhagen just as we are preparing for take off. It's that "turn your flight safe mode on" time - and the start of an hour and a half of enforced disconnection from the outside world. And this always gets me thinking of how peaceful it … Continue reading Disconnecting
