Hello! I’m Jo. Welcome to my blog, Adventures in Adulting, I’m so glad you found your way here!

A little bit about me…

I’m 28 and based in the wonderful city of Leeds but originally from the South, with a slightly confused accent. I work as a teaching assistant after a big career change earlier this year, and live with my boyfriend and two mini lop bunnies, Mel and Sue. I like big chocolatey mochas, bear hugs, stationery, the colour pink, ice-cold prosecco, belly laughing, dogs, cats, bunnies (okay, all animals) and cheese. Lots of cheese. I don’t like running, the cold, diets, rudeness, tea (I’ve tried but I just can’t) or phoniness – let’s keep it real.

A little bit about the blog…

This blog is a space for me to share my thoughts and experiences as I navigate through adult life. Expect articles about mental health, body image, beauty, gift guide round ups (with a focus on independent sellers), baking adventures and more. Not to mention a few illustrations popping up here and there – take a look at my Etsy shop if you like them! This is an open and honest place to share my life where I hope you find articles that you relate to.

A little bit about you…

What makes you tick? One of my absolute favourite things about blogging is connecting with other people and sharing thoughts and ideas – please do drop me a line, I’d love to hear from you!

Jo x
