My life has been a bit chaotic recently (understatement of the year, but we move), so here I am with another tardy blog. This week conceded my favourite time of the year - autumn. Not only was it a good month for pumpkins, falling leaves and pretentious coffees, but October also brought us several great… Continue reading My Favourite Creative Campaigns Of October 2022
Good morning! I hope everyone's doing well on this chilly day. Autumn's definitely arrived now, hasn't it? This is my favourite time of year, not least because Halloween, Christmas and Bonfire Night are just around the corner. I'm very excited to see what October brings in the way of brilliant minds thinking up even more… Continue reading My Favourite Creative Campaigns Of September 2022
Something probably most of you don't know is that I actually went into PR with the intent to start a career in the music industry. My first kind of work experience was when I joined up with a music management company to help promote new and upcoming indie bands on their books. For a while,… Continue reading The PR-Fuelled Psychology Of FOMO
As I am writing this embarrassingly late, August does not just feel a lifetime away, it was. Now nearing the end of September, I've well and truly bid adios to those summer days for another year.

From patriotic packaging to seasonal stunts,… Continue reading A Royal Affair Of PR Campaigns 🇬🇧👑

As Johnny Depp sues ex-wife Amber Heard for defamation (and she retaliates with a counterclaim), the whole world has watched with intensity as years’… Continue reading Why It’s Wrong For Brands To Get Involved In Depp V Heard
Last week was Mental Health Awareness Week, and though there were plenty of great resources shared - we're all a bit guilty of forgetting about it after the fact aren't we? Every time there's a notable moment or an awareness day, week, or month, mental health is spoken about in abundance, but the truth is,… Continue reading #MentalHealthAwareness – 5 Things PRs Should Remember
This is not the blog post I thought I'd be sitting down to write this weekend. Having just got back from 3 fantastic days at BrightonSEO (if you follow me on Twitter you *might* just know that!) I have a whole host of things I want to, and will, talk about on this blog. But… Continue reading How The F*ck Am I Up For 2 Awards?!
I wrote this blog for Source PR, where it appeared first, but I thought it deserved a place here too...
