If you’re reading this it’s because you’ve somehow managed to find your way onto my blog so, hi ❀

I’m Chloe, I’m 24 and I’m hopelessly nostalgic, overemotional and longing for everything and nothing all at once. I’m a writer and a dreamer (sometimes) and I was born in the wrong era, probably.

I love books, reading is my favourite thing to do in the world. I’m a feminist and vegetarian, though I always try to be vegan where I can. I love to educate myself on the world and the people in it more and more each day, learning is one of my favourite things to do and I love the fact I will never run out of things to learn, or read, for that matter. I’d like to use my voice for the greater good as well as being able to share myself and my thoughts about life, and I’m grateful that this little space on the internet allows me to do that. This blog is my favourite thing I own (along with my car), intangible as it may be (the blog that is, not my Rangie).

I created this blog 5 years ago because I had so many thoughts and words to share but nowhere to say them, there were a lot of stories I wanted to tell, a lot of memories I wanted to share and a lot of magic I wanted to create. I believe that the past 5 years have been nothing but that on this blog, and will continue to be for many years to come. I love this little space I’ve created more than words.

I hope to continue to share my thoughts, feelings and hopefully inspire and be inspired, our souls are limitless and I want to believe that I can do anything. I want to be nothing but real and so this blog is filled with me essentially sharing the rawest and deepest parts of myself, no matter how scary that may be. I’m always as open and honest as I can be with my words and whatever you’re going through, I promise you’re not alone. My mental health posts alone will hopefully represent that.

So many things inspire me, the world and the people in it inspire me to be better and to become everything I hoped I would be. This is a place to remind myself that I still have time, I have all the time in the world. This is a journey I’m embarking on to find myself, to discover my soul and who I truly am. When I created this blog I was so lost and this was me taking the steps in order to be found – I’m still on that journey and hope I always will be. I want to continue to grow and flourish everyday.

As I said 5 years ago, I wanted to start something new and to start something for myself so, here I am. I hope you enjoy reading my words as much as I enjoy writing them.

All my love, Chloe .xx

she is sugar, curiosity and rain

she wore flowers in her hair and carried magic secrets in her eyes. she spoke to no one. she spent hours on the riverbank and had midnight swims.

it is part of her beauty, this quality of being not quite there, dreamlike.

the universe was never something she feared, but an endless road she would travel carrying a suitcase full of flowers and a pocketful of promises to herself she intended to keep

she exists as in dreams. she has no sense of reality. she gets nervous because people are always interrupting her daydreams

she had wild eyes, slightly insane. she also carried an overload of compassion that was real enough and which obviously cost her something

she reminded me of the sea; the way she came dancing towards you, wild and beautiful, and just when she was almost close enough to touch, she’d rush away again

Above all else, it is about leaving a mark that I existed: I was here. I was hungry. I was defeated. I was happy. I was sad. I was in love. I was afraid. I was hopeful. I had an idea and I had a good purpose and that’s why I made works of art.
