Hi! My name is Lauren and I am the writer in this cosy corner of the internet. I am nineteen years old and from Wales, but am currently studying at university in England. I title this as a "lifestyle blog," unsure of which category to place it under, so, hopefully, you will find something you enjoy to read here! 

I am reading English and Classics (joint honours) at University and studied English Literature & Language, History, Drama, Politics and the Welsh Baccalaureate at A-Level. 

The main reason for starting this blog was my love for the written word. It won't take you long to find a scribbled draft of something or other wherever I am, my earliest works consisting of pencilled stick men and sentences that wondered from the lines in a wiggly, illegible fashion.

My love of blogging was increased by my discovery of photography. A few years ago, I began to take this hobby more seriously and spent my saved money on a Canon 1200D, an investment I will never regret. Thousands of photos later, I can definitely say I am now known as the annoying, picture-taking member of the family, who squeals when there's good light and begs people to pose as I snap away. 

Anything creative excites me; I admit I'm an awful artist, but music is one of my greatest loves, and also being on the stage. Since being young I have always loved performing, although I can't quite describe why. I have gone from playing Mary in my primary school nativity show, to Lambchops, a gutsy drummer, in "Fame!"

So here I am, blogging and loving it to this day, hoping my words will make some difference in this strange world we all live in. Thank you very much for taking your time to read my thoughts in this cosy part of the internet; if you're new, welcome, and if you've been here a while, welcome back!
