Who Am I?

Hi, I'm Fleur! Who am I you ask? Well, I'm 22 year old recent Publishing Media Graduate living in Rural Hampshire. I've been blogging since I was about 13 so you could say I've been blurting my thoughts onto the internet for sometime. I've always been writing about what I've been up to and for a long time it was just my mum who was reading it (Hi Mum), nowadays I have stepped back from the world of blogging to return in recent months as a way of trying to keep a record of this weird and wonderful world that we are living in. I'm out here trying to navigate living back home with my parents, trying to find a job in London as well as trying to keep up somewhat of a social life. 

What do I do?

I love reading, which is obvious from the fact I studied Publishing at university (wanna know more about that, well I have a blogpost just about that!). During my time at university I struggled to find the time to read for pleasure which was really quite sad but since graduating I've found so much joy in escaping into books! I plan on sharing my top books and hopefully a book club may be in the works (watch this space!)

Another of my passions is design. I've always enjoyed being creative and making things, I suppose that is part of the reason why I started blogging. When I went to university I learnt more about Photoshop and InDesign, I loved it so much! At the moment, I'm fortunate enough to be working within my families eCommerce business meaning that I have a means of selling some of my designs which I think is pretty cool! 

I love food, I suppose that's a given, but I love everything about food. I love trying out new recipes, if you didn't know I eat a dairy-free diet as I'm lactose intolerant (alas much like everyone else that is lactose intolerant I do make some slip ups!). Around early 2019, I made an Instagram called @WhatOxfordEats in order to capture all the amazing restaurants and cafes in and around Oxford. It was so much fun to engage with other Food-Instagrammers from the local area. Since moving away it made sense to change the name to @WhatFleurEats so that it was more inclusive of the area that I may find myself in! 

Where am I now?

Now, I'm living back with my parents in Rural Hampshire whilst attempting to find a job in London, that's the plan anyway! (October, 2020)
