Architecture, Being A Woman & Blackness.

With very little sleep under my belt as I'd just landed from Copenhagen, last week Friday I went to a meeting I'd been bubbling with excitement over. Not only because of the content and topic of the meeting, but rather because I was about to meet with an Architect. But not just any architect, a black woman Architect. If you know anything about the Architecture world in the United Kingdom you'll know that the profession is far from diverse, with men making up to 94% of the profession here. So meeting another woman in the industry who looks like me, who will have had a similar past, upbringing, social and cultural values like me was so pleasant. I graduated with a Masters in Architecture this month and I was the sole black female to graduate on the MArch course of 2017. As much as people like to say, 'don't put labels on yourself', I carry the label of being a black woman in a profession that is very much white male with utmost pride.


Summer In The City. (Plus a Giveaway!)

Mayfair, London, UK

The World Is Your Oyster (Card).

There is an unbearable humidity in the air, iced coffee's are everywhere and trying to navigate through Oxford street at any given time of day is quite literally impossible. This can mean only one thing. Summer In The City. I sat down and realised a few days ago, that gone are the days of having a good solid three to four weeks off at summer to enjoy oneself. This will be the last ever summer I'll probably ever have where I'm *free*, and have quite a good amount of free time to well.. do stuff, and instead of just sitting at my laptop for hours on end, robotically applying for every architectural role that I may find, something is tugging at me to do and be more...

"Appreciation & Admiration"

I’ve been blogging for almost seven years now and I will maintain that the best thing to come out of me over sharing on the Internet for strangers to read is friendship. From my tumblr days back in 2008 up until my lazy blogging days of late, the friendships I’ve made along the way have had a remarkable impact on my life and indeed my blogging journey. Without some of the pals I’ve made over the years on the Internet, I’d be quite lost, particularly when it comes to the in’s and out’s of the more monetary side of it all. So this post is all about internet pals and how incredible the blogging community can be. Read Supal's post all about friendship and her move to the UK from the US.


New Beginnings…

Life Comes At You Fast.

When life gives you lemons you make lemonade as the famous saying goes, and whether it’s because graduation is looming and my best friend of life is flying in all the way from Chicago just to see me collect my degree, but I am feeling optimistic and full of life. Things have worked out very much differently to how I would have imagined it to be sixth months ago, and things on the Architecture job front have fallen through in Liverpool, but surprisingly, I’m not sad (well anymore that is) because something in my heart is telling me it may be for the best. So I’m moving back to London.
