It’s December 2019. I’ve been blogging since November 2016. The difference now? I’m launching a new chapter of Madeleine Mae (with a fresh redesign AND a new direction) AND I’ve graduated the University of Birmingham with a 2:1, I’ve moved to my FAVOURITE city, Bristol, and I’m ready to take this blog where I’ve always wanted to take it.
So, this is where we’re at. You’ll find just four sections to the blog:
- ‘Life’. All things lifestyle, travel, life updates and more.
- ‘Style’. This is not to be confused with fashion, fast fashion, or the ‘wear-this-once-and-then-bin-it’ culture. I want this blog to promote re-wearing, revitalising your wardrobe by wearing what you already own in a new way, and being a little better on the shopping front for our environment. I’m by no means the best at this, but I’m trying to be better, hence why ‘Style’ feels like the right kinda vibe for me.
- ‘Music’. I love my music, as you may already know. I’ve interviewed the likes of Lewis Capaldi, Nina Nesbitt, Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes and Deaf Havana. You can find all these oldie but goldies still in my ‘Music’ section, but I’m hoping to get cracking on some new stuffs soon!
- ‘Hey, Boo’. The reason why I adore writing is because it can evoke change and challenge people’s thoughts. I’m passionate about writing about topics people may class as ‘taboo’: such as grief and *honest* chats about mental health. I want this blog to be a space that challenges preconceived notions in society, in an inclusive, supportive way. That’s why imma sayin’ ‘Hey, Boo’ to u !
As always has been, you can follow me across the socials of social media. My Instagram and Twitter handles are both @maddiemae_xo – which is convenient for remembering them, yet shows my lack of originality to think of a better name. Ur welcome. xo
As I’ve touched on, I’ve JUST moved to Bristol with my boyfriend (crazy, I know) and am having a ‘year off’ or a semi-‘break’ to work as a Marketing Assistant, before perhaps trying to achieve my all-time dream of working in journalism one day. I also write in my spare time and am hoping to amp things up on the blog in the New Year. Other noteworthy things to know about me? I also want to be a sausage dog mama. So if anyone fancies buying/stealing me a lil sausage doggo, there’s a great home for it here in Brizzle. 😛
So now we’ve hit December 2019 and I’m ready to relaunch Madeleine Mae: readers, general public, PRs who might be interested in usin’ me for campaigns (pls where r u gal needs monies Bristol rent is extortionate) I’m ready for action!
As I’m working full-time and also do some odd writing jobs on the side, I’m going to try my best to post regularly, once or sometimes twice a week. We’ll see how things go, but I’m hoping I’ll get back into the swing of things very quickly and will have posts rolling out as much as I can!
Thank you so much for those of you that read me lil blog on the reg – I really do appreciate it as creating and maintaining this wee website is a big ol’ passion of mine. New chapter of my personal life; new blog to go with it! Let’s see how things go ’round here, shall we? I, for one, am v excite!
