You’ve probably reached this page through my social media plugs and so already know me, in which case hello current friend! However, if by some fantastic chance you’re reading this blog and we don’t know each other, read on and let’s get acquainted!
My name is Megan and I’m from Liverpool originally, but currently based in the best city in the UK*, Manchester where I’ve been for nearly 14 years minus a year spent in glorious Sevilla, Spain!
I’m not sure on the category of my blog, but if you really had to give it a label, you would call it a ‘life’ blog, in that it is all about my life. That sounds pretentious, and assuming that you are interested in my life, I know. But there’s not really another term to describe it, plus you’re the one here reading this!
If you’re reading this page, you must be interested in knowing more about the girl behind the blog. So, what am I about?
I am interested in so many things and I really do try to live life in colour. The past few years of the pandemic have really shown us all what’s important, and for me, that is living a life that is authentic and full, and making the most of what time we have on this beautiful planet.
I love music, going to gigs and festivals, reading, travelling, and being out in nature. I love storytelling and I love hearing other people’s stories, and I thrive when I’m learning about different cultures, backgrounds, and languages.
I quit my full-time job of 8 years during the pandemic and decided to have a go at being freelance and working for myself, whilst also working in a beautiful local wine bar. I had always loved wine (well – for about 10 years at least!), but never knew what I was drinking. I am now WSET Level 2 certified and I adore learning as much as I can about it. I’ve since left the wine bar and am fully freelance now – I work as a copywriter and podcast producer, but I am still keeping up with my wine education by drinking it regularly!
Like any good Northerner, I love gravy and if I had to choose one food (or liquid?) to have for the rest of my life it would be that. I love yoga, especially hot yoga, which was a huge surprise to me considering you basically fester in your own sweat, and I get agitated when the bath’s too hot.
For fear of sounding like I live with my head in the clouds, I am grateful for my life because I have a lot to be grateful for, and many of my posts will reflect this. They may unintentionally come across as soppy, perhaps even irritating. That being said, you’ll likely find the odd not-so-positive post where I’m having a rant, discussing an unpleasant topic, or just wallowing in victim mode (something I try actively not to do but that does happen from time to time) but hey, that comes with the territory doesn’t it in one of these ‘life’ blogs?! (Does the term ‘life blog’ even exist or am I just trying to make ‘life blog’ happen?)
Anyway, thank you for reading. Contact me via the ‘contact’ page if you so wish, I’m always open to receiving a message (unless it’s abuse then jog on, no time for that!)
Have a wonderful day and I am sending you lots of love and light ✨
