On love, loss and grief

I’ve been grumpy as hell this week and ready to cry at the drop of a hat. And this afternoon I finally realised why. It’s this post.

I started it about a week ago, convinced that I needed to write something profound and enlightening, but also to share this experience before I get back to regular posting on the blog. But the thing is, I just don’t really have anything profound to say. Still, it’s half written already and I’m going to get it finished. So here we go.

Fringe World 2017: my top picks

It’s here! Following the media launch this morning, the 2017 Fringe World Festival will kick off tomorrow and run through until 19th February.

When I first started writing my top picks posts back in 2013, there were about 250 events to choose from across the entire festival – this year, there are a whopping 700+ events to choose from, across more than 150 venues. I just think that is absolutely incredible – although it does make it hard to narrow down my top picks!

A little life update – part 2

Hi guys!

It’s been five weeks now since I had carpal tunnel release surgery and I wanted to let you all know things are going really well! The good news is the pain and numbness I was experiencing has completely gone away – woohoo! Unfortunately the bad news is I’m still pretty sore and weak due to the surgeon having to cut through what I understand is a pretty big ligament to get to the nerve. This can apparently take anywhere from 6 weeks up to 6 months to heal up, so here’s hoping that in a couple more weeks I start seeing some big improvements on that front.

What does this mean for the blog? I’m launching back into it as of today – it just might mean it takes me a little longer to write posts than usual! I’ve got a whole bunch of stuff up my sleeve that I can’t wait to share, especially my very first bloggers event that’s happening tomorrow! Make sure you jump over to my Instagram or Snapchat (username: hvnstourniquet) to see all of the highlights from the Bloggers United Au event.

I’m also working on the website for my newest venture, Emdash Media (I’ll let you all know when that is up and running) and have just started my Social Media Mastery certification. It’s all happening!

More from me real soon! x

A little life update

Just popping by to let you guys know I’ll be taking a short break from blogging over the coming weeks. Things have been a little quiet recently and will be for another few weeks as I’m having carpal tunnel release surgery tomorrow. I’ll still be posting over on Instagram and Snapchat (username: hvnstourniquet) to help prevent cabin fever while I recover, if you’d like to come along for the ride. I can’t wait to get stuck back into things in a few weeks! Wish me luck x
