"Breathe innnnnnn. Now, breathe ouuuuut. - My yoga teacher" I love writing. That's the only fact about me that's stayed consistent from the time I was about 5 (yes, apparently I was making up stories about soap-dishes and buses then). I've been a teenage rebel, angsty poet-feminist-writer, gone establishment as a corporate slave, fallen in and out of various adventures of the heart and now...all I am is someone who writes. The Idea-smithy is where it all began online and I still blog about the city, style, poetry, photography, fiction and all sorts of other ideas. But I have a different voice at my other blog, XX Factor where I address the oldest conflict of all - the battle of the sexes. And of course, I'm also on Twitter and Pinterest.
