Five Happy Things #3

It's time for part three of my Five Happy Things series. What's made you happy lately? 1) A lovely brunch date Can all Mondays kick off with a brunch date please? Last week, I met up with my wonderful friend Jacqui. No matter what stage you are at in your life, you should have people around you who inspire and encourage you. Jacqui is one of those people. She manages a career as a doctor, a family and a busy social life. When I grow up, I want to be like her. We chatted and caught up and shared what was going on in our lives. A fab couple of hours. The Plough in Harborne is one of my favourite brunch spots. The atmosphere is great. I cannot wait to see  how the place looks, once their expansion work is finished. This Eggs Benedict was so good 2) Work I went full time freelance with Honey Bee Copywriting one year ago and I'm so thankful for the place I'm in right now. There are still some goals that I am working towards but I've had the privilege to w

Five Happy Things #2

It's been a while. Here are five things that have made me happy, over the past couple of weeks.

Melly's Musings | Life Update: New Job

Just when I thought I had received my fair share of exciting life events this year, things changed.... It's been a funny old year. I think the important bits and pieces are pretty much on here but work-wise, it's been especially up and down.

Yes Moments

Yes Moments are those tiny moments when life has complete clarity, meaning or certainty. Yes Moments can be life-changing or life-affirming. Yes Moments are about celebrating the little daily victories. Yes Moments are about recognising just how far you've come. Tell us what Yes Moments mean to you.

Melly's Musings: Working Girl

So, I've been rather naughty and neglected this blog a little but I'm back. And thought it’d be cool to show you what I’ve been up to, at work. As you’ll know, from this post , I’m a marketing copywriter for a fabulous jewellers . And as if by some miracle, the main crux of my job description is to blog. Woohoo! It’s like a dream come true. So, here are a couple of the guest posts that I’ve done for other blogs, on behalf of T H Baker. One post is all about how I’ll be rocking maxi skirts this summer. Which, as far as I’m concerned are the go-to item for this weird we’re-not-quite-sure-if-it’s-really-summer sort of weather. They look great with just a vest top or layered up with a gilet. Anyway, enough of my yapping, you can check the post out here . And secondly, I wrote a little Graduation Gift Guide – handy for this time of year, so check it out. I feel so blessed to have walked into a job, literally 5 weeks after finishing my degree. Although, it’s more excit


Apologies in advance that this blog is a bit of a ramble and has no photos (boo). It's all change here, in Melly's World. As finishing my degree in English and Creative Writing loomed, I had started to worry that beyond summer, I would be a part of the frighteningly high statistic of 18-24's who had no job. So, I started to Google around about how to erm, move on with my life. The most important question I had to ask myself was 'what do I want to do?' When I was 3, I decided that I wanted to be a teacher and that was my dream until the age of 18. Well, for anybody who has ever had a dream, you'll know that the only thing scarier than not achieving your dream is having no dream at all. All I knew was this: I love to write. And since the teaching dream died, I'd thought of how I was going to acquire a job where I could do what I loved all of the time. Teaching would have been the easy option. But who wants easy?
