3 year anniversary…

It’s been 3 years since I’ve created this blog and what better time than for me to launch my new campaign!

I’m taking part in the DofE Diamond challenge where I’m raising money so that young people from all backgrounds can gain their Duke of Edinburgh (DofE) award. I’m currently working on my Gold award and I have to say it’s been one of the best experiences of my life!

If you would like to donate some money please visit my fundraising page: www.justgiving.com/dofediamondchallenge-ayahs93

All proceeds will go to DofE – thank you very much, and I hope you’ve enjoyed the last three years with me!


Birthday Blog (One Year On!)

My blog is one years old! Yay 🙂




Since the domain name of my blog cleared, I have:

  • Been a guest writer on several blogs
  • Held my first event (successfully ♥) as a Brand Ambassador
  • Had my work published!
  • Discovered my passion for helping others (non-profit sector); and
  • Achieved my Bronze Duke of Edinburgh award!!


    I have seen, watched, read, heard and felt more than I could possibly process. I have discovered new cultures, new information and new emotions, and I can honestly say I have come out the other side as a much better, intelligent and stronger person. This blog was created after seeing my friend develop her own writing blog (Starting Write) but has since developed and evolved into something more than a little experimentation and experiencing this journey with you- my 49 brilliant and loyal followers – well.. I wouldn’t have it any other way.


    Thank you and Happy Birthday.
