The Time My Mum’s Plane Was Hijacked

The Time My Mum’s Plane Was Hijacked

Christiana, Denmark, 1980 Christiana is a commune in Copenhagen, Europe - much like a gated community, of sorts. It's a gathering of people living together that share common interests like income, work, properties and possessions. Christiana's current population is 850. In the year 1980, it was 852. Mum left her family and friends behind in [...]

Hello There, Sunshine! Yes, That’s You..

Hello There, Sunshine! Yes, That’s You..

I have personally never been the one for New Year's resolutions. If you want to have a more positive attitude or start going the gym, why not just start right there and then? No point holding off until January 1st for that nonsense. However, 2016 is now among us and I have given in to [...]

“She Asked Me How to Spell Orange”

It’s that time of year when social lives go out the window, the abundance of maths books come in and any chance of being stress-free has retired. Well, for college students, that is. We are currently in our first week of exams and, yes, here I am writing for you. Two weeks ago our teachers [...]

A Blog About Blogging

A Blog About Blogging

I often sit in front of my little computer, brainstorming ideas to write about. All I get is a literal brain storm. I procrastinate easily (for example, I wrote this whilst in class and it has been sitting in drafts for a month). People always say that blogging isn't about the readers, it's about the writer.

I walked into the modelling studio with sushi and a paper bag from the news agency. “You bought a magazine, didn’t you?” Mum questioned, already knowing the answer. “It’s Vogue, right?” Apparently my reading material is easily predictable. How was I, a teenage girl and fashion blogger, expected to catch a glimpse of the lustrous [...]

My Guide to Being Inspired During 2015

My Guide to Being Inspired During 2015

I don't believe in New Year's Resolutions. I think that if you want to create a "new you" or try something different, why do you need a new date to allow you to do it? If you want something, don't wait until a new year ticks over. So, my not-New Year's Resolution is to remain [...]

My New Year’s Resurrection

My New Year’s Resurrection

Instead of having a New Year's Resolution, I thought I would have a resurrection instead. It already feels so good to be back in the blog-o-sphere - the layout of Cheeta Cake has had an update, but that's because I haven't posted anything since July and I have changed since July, so my blog should [...]

2 Days in the Life of a Journo

2 Days in the Life of a Journo

Becoming one step closer to your ultimate dream career is a wonderful feeling, and even better to know it's happening before you have even finished high school. Three weeks ago, I started my once-a-week work placement at the local newspaper. My first initial thought was "what am I going to wear?", but I realised that [...]
