Blue Rinse began in the autumn of 2011, I was stuck in a rut after a whirlwind year exploring The Netherlands. A passion for creative writing and crafting inspired me to document my daily doings. Over the years I have explored a range of topics and I'm currently re-evaluating the direction I want to take moving forward.


what camera do you use? I am currently using the Nikon D3100 with standard kit lens, but looking to upgrade soon. Any suggestions?

do you have a medical condition? Yes. I suffer from fibromyalgia a chronic condition that affect all my joints and muscles. I have good days and bad days but overall I manage with the support from close friends and family.

do you make videos? Yes. I started out last year but felt really uncomfortable in front of the camera - mainly my own insecurities - but i'm raring to get back into them.

what is your job? I am a freelance journalist and social media consultant. I work with small businesses and brands.

where are you from? North Wales
