I’m Jess, a twentysomething from the UK, and this blog is a place where I can spew my thoughts and pretend I’m a hip, introspective young woman who has her shit together.

I’m an avid reader and film-watcher, a history nerd, a feminist, and a unicorn enthusiast. I’m also a traveller (when I can afford to be) and left my heart in Italy.
