Help each other through this.

trange times we’re living in eh? Pretty scary, but also everything still feels sort of the same. Very hard to comprehend at the moment and no one knows where this will end. But one thing is certain, loads of independent businesses, creatives and musicians are going to be really affected. So I just wanted to put together a post about some of my favourite artists, bands, independent labels and businesses and show how you can support them through this, by buying something, donating… whatever.

I’m a snowflake and proud of it

I was reading The Sunday Times this weekend. I read it quite regularly, the same way I do The Telegraph, as they are the papers my parents choose to read.
