Hello 2019!

To make New Year’s Resolutions or not? That’s the question at the beginning of every new year, isn’t it? Today I’m writing down my thoughts on the annual collective goal-setting and (spoiler-alert!) sharing some of my own goals for 2019. I never really know what to think of New Year’s Resolutions. I still don’t know…

Bye bye 2018!

The very final article of the Almost Famous Writer advent calendar 2018 is here: a goodbye letter to 2018 and all of the amazing things it brought me, from a rekindled love for analog photography and pink hair, to two MA degrees and two internships. 2018… … was the year I did my internship at…

Hello November!

Every time a new month rolls around and I sit down to write these updates, I feel like so much has happened and I have so much to tell. October was a month of transition, not just in the seasonal sense, but also in my life, with my new internship, my pre-master, my MA thesis…

The two are best friends, sharing everything from blowdryers, pop tarts and…

Hello September!

The first of September does kind of feel like the first of January, doesn’t it? It’s a fresh start,  a new beginning and an opportunity to completely refresh. Perhaps I even like the first of September more, because it means Autumn is almost upon us (hello fluffy blankets, chai tea lattes and cinnamon-scented candles) and…

Hello 2018! // Editorial

With the end of one year and the arrival of a new one, usually comes a time of reflection. Looking back at 2017, I feel like it has just passed me by. I originally wanted to write a 17 highlights of 2017 post, but before I knew it, 2018 had arrived already and it just…

My Instagram 2017 Best Nine

Ah, December… this month is great for a lot of things, like an abundance of snacks, burning scented candles 24/7, playing Christmas music on repeat, making gift guides and listing round-ups of the past year in music, films, books, moments and Instagram posts.  Much like the Spotify Wrapped feature, Instagram Best Nine rounds up your most…

Meet Ziggy!

A couple of months ago we decided we wanted to adopt a cat. We both missed having a pet in the house and we really wanted to adopt a cat, to give one a good home. When I was growing up, there was always a dog around and although I definitely want to get a…
