So I haven’t been able to write here on the blog for a while because I have been steeped in work at university and today (thank God!) I managed to submit the 4,000 word essay which has been giving me grief for the past three months!
After having a lovely celebratory drink in the sun to celebrate I have come home and slumped down onto my hard red sofa in my uni living room with friends to come and chat with you beautiful people!
So, as the title of this post suggests, I have a big reveal for you all! I recently have been writing for another blog all based around music and festival vibes called BritzNBeatz which you can check out at: https://www.britznbeatz.co.uk/ Since writing for them I have been in touch with a writer called Lucy who also has a blog that you can check out too: https://lucylovesme.co.uk/ Lucy called me the other day with some opportunities to possibly see some upcoming gigs and do a little more work for them in the future which I am super excited about so do look out for that!
Now you may ask, why am I telling you all this? Well, if any of you check out Lucy’s blog you will notice that she has a lovely little caricature of herself on there. For ages now I have been wanting a logo for the blog and I haven’t wanted to pay hundreds of pounds for it since as I am a student, and so I thought I’d ask Lucy. She directed me to an absolutely lovely woman called Claire who goes by the Twitter handle @AlohaLolaCards who I strongly recommend you talk to if you’d like a blog too!
I told her what I was looking for and she mastered it to a T! Hereby, I am pleased to announce the official How To Drink Milk unveiling of my new logo!
As you can see, Claire has managed to capture a likeness of me including the locket that I wear containing photos of my father, a book and quill to reflect my writing, a real likeness of my prom dress and a bloke to represent the boys I talk about in my posts!
I am so, so pleased with it and am so happy that How To Drink Milk finally has something to be identified by!
On other news, I received a message from the author who is binding together the Creative Collective Anthology that I submitted my poetry for and was told would be published about a month ago. The message informed me that I could submit a photo to go with the poems in the book so people would be aware of who I was and as well as this… Prepare yourselves…
THE BOOK IS DUE TO BE RELEASED THIS WEEK!
I am actually so happy that I am finally moving forward and really expanding my writing and getting it out there more. Without you followers and people who have complimented my blog and what I write about I never could have got the confidence to write about what I do now, and I cannot wait to spend many more years telling you about my journey and habing you grow with me.
I hope all is going well for you milklets! Have a nice evening!
