Hi, I’m Phoebe and yes, I have a blog.
I created this little corner on the internet back in 2012 to keep my passion for writing alive after graduating from university.
Originally captioned ‘yes I have a blog and no, I don’t have a career‘ it has, like me, taken on many guises and grown in many ways.
Throughout it all: world-wandering, career-seeking and wordsmith-ing, I have realised that I have a serious case of determination. Whether that has been the determination to write (post-uni), determination to travel or even determination to improve my own wellbeing; it has been a real driving force for me over the years.
Amongst (many) other things, I’m a Norfolk native, a plant enthusiast and an outdoor wellness advocate. Writing for me is as much about the joy of putting pen to paper as it is curating words. I have notebooks spilling out of my writing desk, stuffed into various backpacks and propping up the pillows on my bed; it is my firm belief that no writer should be without their stationery. Because of this, I can often be found binding my own notebooks with my reconditioned Singer sewing machine and selling my wares in my Etsy shop.
Have a read of my Norfolk Life category for all the best bits of the county I call home and life in the fine city of Norwich.
I live with a mental health condition and anxiety which I like to manage partly through spending time in the great outdoors and various forms of gardening; more on that in my Outdoor Wellness category.
I’ve been transitioning to a lower waste lifestyle since 2018. If you’re interested in plastic free, zero waste and more sustainable living, I share my ups, downs and general thoughts on the matter in my Low Waste Lifestyle category.
A combination of plant spam, outdoor adventures and plastic free chats can be enjoyed over at my yesihaveablog instagram but I’ve also recently created a dedicated account for outdoor wellness (where you can get inspired but also share your own mental health stories if you want to too).
Seek Pin-spiration with me over at Pinterest.
Or Tweet me if you want, I’m sometimes there too.
Other things that are important to note about me: Jurassic Park is my favourite film…ever, I’m struggling to keep my extensive fern collection alive, Margaret Atwood is my hero, SEO is my jam and I really like cats.
