What you do and what you love…
Tell us a bit about Cloudi Journal. What made you start it?
Cloudi is a digital magazine I started after I finished studying and wasn’t in my ideal job. My manager often told me ‘your head is in the clouds’. Reflecting on that I realised I’d been like that the majority of my life and it is my ultimate happy place. What outwardly looks simply absentminded in my head is completely different. I have been an ‘ideas’ person as long as I can remember. I have ideas popping into my head all day every day. When ‘my head is in the clouds’ I am dreaming, thinking about creative ideas & possibilities. I knew to get the job I wanted in the future I needed to ‘act as if’ I had the job I wanted so I just started.
What do you love the most about Cloudi Journal?
My favourite part about Cloudi is getting to connect with other creatives. It’s amazing for networking. I love spotlighting creatives who’s work I love for my friends and followers to discover. There is no better feeling than finding a new person you can get inspiration from. My true passion is creative direction is planning photoshoots which is why I started Cloudi & part of my current job.
What do you enjoy the most about your Social Media Marketing role at Stirling Sports?
I love how every day is different, I love working on photoshoots and different creative projects and my team is great! Also working on a new brand @taylorsport_ **cheeky plug ☺ ** is so rewarding. Keep your eyes peeled for an exciting @buttermilkaccessories collab coming in the future…
Lessons learnt and gratitude…
What’s one thing that excites you to get up in the morning?
Definitely coffee, morning meditation & hot yoga! But mostly working on creative projects which I am spending my work days & spare time on. I truly can’t imagine being motivated to get up doing anything else. It definitely lights me up.
Rebekah & I often share our favourite meditations & the morning gratitude meditation she sent me is truly the best, best way to start your morning. A game changer I end it in tears every time.
One thing you would tell your younger self?
I would tell my younger self to go easier on myself. When I finished studying I really struggled with not being where I wanted to be. I have extremely high expectations of myself and was so hard on myself when I first finished uni.
What I now know is that surrendering, being kind to yourself while taking aligned action is the best recipe to getting what you want. I would tell my younger self to chill lol xx
What’s something you’re really proud of yourself for?
I’m proud of myself for following my heart and intuition. For not listening to people opinions in regard to what I should do with my life. I feel like I’ve had to push back on what others thought I should do, not taking the ‘safe’ option, Judgements on what I studied and chose to do. I’m so proud that I knew who I was and what I wanted from a young age & was self-assured enough to not listen to others & opinions.
And last but not least, favourite Buttermilk hair claw and way of wearing it?
I want to start my saying I LOVE buttermilk accessories SO much. They are such great quality, the coolest range of colours & Rebekah is a real life ANGEL, my favourite person to work with ever. This is my favourite image of me in buttermilk but I also love all of the photos from our Buttermilk Dreamland campaign! And a special mention to my ‘JUMBO Elle - Ocean Eyes’ claw which is by my side every day. It’s the best!
