Accessibility is our Responsibility – New Feature to the Blog

Happy new year, loves! With this new year, I have some new ideas to implement on this blog 🙂   A couple of months ago I was invited to the Premier Digital Awards. I had been nominated and shortlisted for Tweeter of the Year! While, I did not win, it was a total honour to…

Closing Remarks – Bye 2017, Hello 2018

This year has been.. a journey, to say the least! Everyone I've spoken to seems to feel the same way - this year was one for the books. This has been a year of pruning and growth. A year of preparation and maturing. And for that we should be grateful. For 2018, I wish you…

WORDS TO LIVE BY – WORDS OF SELF-AFFIRMATION ARE IMPORTANT

You've probably heard that words are powerful so be careful what you say. I'm here to tell you, you are, or rather you become, who you tell yourself you are.   As a Woman of Faith, it is so vital that I speak positive things over and into my life. I say, out loud or…

HOW A NON-CHRISTIAN MADE JESUS ‘KNOWN’ TO ME

As a Christian, one of my primary beliefs is the Gospel as good news to be shared. I believe I am called to know Jesus and tell other people of Him. It's my job to make Him known. Growing up in the UK, most people had some idea (however skewed it is) of who Jesus…

You’re doing great, sweetie – Don’t be in a rush, hun x

  I've always been too fast and too smart for my own good. That kid that wants to get involved in everything. And now I am at the age where that translates into being the woman with all of the ideas and the mentality that she can do them all. Superwoman, basically. At the beginning…

Christian Feminist? Feminist Christian?

Can you be both? Are the two mutually exclusive? As a Christian, we are often taught views about women that can come across as sexist or oppressive. Often these views are 'legitimised' by Bible scriptures so they aren't questioned or opposed. On the other side of the spectrum, the media tells you that women can…

Stress is Not my Friend

As of now, I've handed in four out of five of my assignments due this month.  I submitted two group projects today and if that has taught me anything it's I handle stress badly. I am a really good team player - and that's not me boasting! And I really do thrive under pressure. But…

Drastic steps to growth

Sometimes getting to the next level, in whatever context, really requires you to do something drastic.  Something a little different from what you would normally do. They say foolishness is doing the same thing each time and expecting a different result. I am starting to really understand that. This year, 2017 and generally this academic…

Motivating While Unmotivated – Guest Blogger: Leonie Mills

If you have ever been in this position, you'll know how hard it is. Being in a position of leadership or being responsible for other people is never easy. But what happens when the success or failure of something rests and you and your vim is in the minus region. When procrastination affects other people…

HOW TO: CREATE AND SUSTAIN YOUR OWN SOCIAL MEDIA BRAND

Two of my friends asked me for some advice about starting online projects. It made me realise that over the years I have gathered some tips and tricks and I am the type of person to share my knowledge, no matter how limited. Firstly, I'm going to blow my trumpet a little and tell you…

Five Days of Tears and Restoration

I cried five days in a row. Not for anything bad, but just because I could not physically fathom how amazing God is. Last week, I went to Wales for the weekend, with my friends from my fellowship RY Sheffield. This wasn't a cheeky getaway, as much as we did have fun, it was a retreat.…

CAMERAS AND COACHES

Welcome to February 2017! We're only a week in and I already know this is going to be a super blessed month, with lots of opportunities for us to grab! On the first of Feb, I was in Birmingham filming with and interviewing Chelsea Monye, who is  the CEO and Founder of The Esquire Network.…

YOU DO TOO MUCH!!

I enjoy working. I like starting a project with the vision of what it could become in the future. I like feeling fulfilled doing media projects, whether that's blogging, filming, YouTube or photography. That is where I 'find' myself. My friends LOVE to tell me, "Paula, you do too much!!" to which I laugh and…
