I have been told many times that I set feminism back 20, 50, God knows how many years. This is mainly because I love to cook, baking is my sanctuary and I am a knitting fiend. But at the same time I’m the kind of girl who runs a university club, edits the student newspaper, gets a rocking degree, works in publishing for a bit and then dives into the digital world, just for a change of scene. The phrase “I am woman, hear me roar” pops to mind… On a totally unrelated note I think you should all subscribe to Simply Knitting magazine and take a course at the University of Northampton.
So I say, I’m a thoroughly modern feminist. I know what I like, I do what I like and other people might just happen to get something scrummy out of it. This blog is meant to be empowering – and not just for girls! I want to show you some of my favourite things (including a killer chocolate brownie recipe and some truly personal hand made gift ideas) and hopefully, at the same time I’ll impart some practical wisdom on the more “important” things in life.
I’m a partially bonkers, crafty food nut, who just likes a good chat. What are we waiting for? Let’s jump in!
