Hello there! Thanks for visiting, what can I do for you today?
I’m Holly, and I like to write things. I always wanted to be a writer, until I wanted to be a doctor, then a composer, then there’s a few dark years I wanted to be an academic (perish the thought!). I like to write all day long, shopping lists and love-notes and political rants, on whatever platform or piece of paper I can get my hands on. Instagram captions, notebooks, receipts, train tickets… Writing is something I always come back to.
This is the nugget of the internet I’ve claimed as my own to shout about all the things I love, and maybe have a little moan from time to time. I write about music, style, and stress. I’m inspired by Stevie Nicks and Debbie Harry, as well as disposable cameras, art history, and my mum. If I could be on the beach forever, I would be.
I spend a lot of time putting on lipstick and trying to navigate the world as a semi-responsible adult. You can find me in Leeds, where I live with my partner and our houseplants, or Manchester, my hometown(ish).
Hope you stick around,
