From lifestyle, curating my home, business musings, and navigating a graduate career (and hopefully travelling other countries when the world resumes normality) – I’ll always have something to chat about.

Hi, I’m Georgie – a mid-twenties multi-creative. I’ve been a rural journalist, an editor, and specialised in communications in marketing. 2021 will be my foray into being a full-time artist and freelance writer, editor, and social media strategist.

Dropping a hat

Photography by Jake Burger I CAN DO THIS, I was almost chanting to myself. I can do it all. I can.  I was staring down the face of an email, that was asking – more so, directing – that I defer my Honours studies at university.  Despite every obstacle I have faced, I always found a […]

In my epiphany, I knew that I couldn’t be doing this in five years’ time. Ten. Twenty. I felt this inexplicable pull, and knew that I had to move home.

From burnout to balance

TO be honest, I knew it was inevitable. Starting at 8 AM most days, finishing at 8 PM, working seven days a week. Sporadically eating, and when I was – not enough of the nutrients my body needed. Not enough water. I kept up with my fasted-cardio runs, workouts, walks … but they were enough […]
