Hey! I'm Sophie and I'm a Content and Communications Coordinator from Leicester.

I love handbags so much so that I can hear my bank account crying when I go shopping and I'm nearly always listening to music. If you want to send me some new music recommendations that you're loving, please do!

Enjoy looking around my blog!

Here's to the Roaring 20s!

A decade has gone by. That's insane. So much can happen in 10 years and to think in this next decade I could be beginning to settling down and potentially having children is scary. The past 10 years have been packed with so many life changes that I can't wrap my head around it all.

I've been to four different schools in the past ten years. Not by choice, this is the system that we had at the time - Primary, High School, College (to sit GCSE's) and a Further Education College. I sat my GCSE's, finished my BTEC and got a full-time job. I had my Prom, organised another Prom, had my first boyfriend, competed in dance competitions, sang at the Royal Albert Hall in London, created a magazine, was able to visit the Capital FM studios and so much more - all because of what I did at school.


I encourage anybody who is still in school to make the most of it and create as many opportunities for yourself as possible because you can use so many of the skills you learn in later life - you also have a lot of fun doing these things too!

Not only did school present me with loads of experiences but so did my blog. One Unique has seen me meet my childhood idol, Tom Daley, I've had my face in every Superdrug around the country on a promotional poster, I've interviewed some super interesting people, been to festivals and events and also made so many new friends.

On a personal level, I've dealt with anxiety, an eating disorder and depression. I've been bullied, I've also saved some people's lives through not only being there for them but other acts such as acting quickly in the swimming pool.

I've also surrounded myself with friendships that mean a lot to me, some may have been temporary and some have lasted the whole decade. This is an important life lesson that I've learnt in the past 10 years, is that not everybody is meant to stay in your life forever. People come and go and it's important not to let losing friendships affect you. You never know what can happen in the future.

An old friend of mine got back in touch a little while ago and it was lovely to know that despite what happened, I have her back in my life even if she's not going to be as close as we once were. She taught me that getting back in touch with people isn't always bad and has made me reconsider other friendships that have ended. In 2020, I want to reach out to some older friends that I lost touch with.

2019 was one of the most significant years of the decade for me. So much has happened in this year. I finished college, got myself a boyfriend and had my first kiss, spent an amazing summer with people that I loved, began my very first job, broke up with my boyfriend, left my very first job and have finally settled down in my new job which I love.

Despite the emotional rollercoaster of 2019, I can safely say that the decade has ended on a high. I'm happy and am passionate about everything I am doing or want to do.

Here's to the Roaring '20s!

Until next time...
