It's funny to be writing this the day after taking to my Instagram stories for a cry about how hard it is at times to be freelance. That's the thing about being self-employed, there are lots of really cool highlights, but there's a lot of uncertainty, self-doubt and imposter syndrome etc, too. I wrote about being freelance a couple of months ago for success.com, you can read it here. Despite my little temporary black hole I found myself in yesterday, September's brought some pretty cool things with it, too.  TBH, writing this has made me feel a millionnnn times better and I guess maybe that's partly the point of it. We tend to give so much more importance to the negatives than the positives for some reason, and I guess this is partly my attempt at combatting that. From attending Rihanna's Fenty Beauty launch party to shooting for Marie Claire Arabia and more, highlights of the month below...
I kinda secretly love September, even though its arrival means that summer is over. I guess it's a bit of a hangover from school days when September ushered in a new year, new stationary (which basically was theeee most exciting thing ever), seeing your friends again after a long summer apart and tons of new exciting challenges and adventures. So, even though I'm kinda sad that August is ending, I'm also kinda excited, too. From the adidas EQT launch to Notting Hill Carnival and more, check out the highlights of August below...
Whaaat do you mean it's already August!? You don't understand how hard I try not to start each and every highlights of the month with an exclamation of how fast time is going but this month I couldn't help myself because WHAT DO YOU MEAN it's already August! Between a(nother) trip to Ibiza, this time for Stormzy's #MerkyFestival, guesting on the BBC Asian Network and being featured in Harpers Bazaar Arabia, this month has positively flown by. Check out the best bits below...
