The Story of Chanel-Monet and her Fashion Label EL MONET

Picture this - you have a passion for fashion that's just waiting to burst from it's hidden depths and explode on to the fashion scene with a sell-out launch event. You're living away from home to study in London, and although you're on a course that doesn't quite feel right for you, it's okay, because you're learning a lot about yourself along the way. You start to realise you're true calling, which is when you begin to dip your toes into the industry you really want to be part of.

The Story of Watercolour Artist Sarah Stokes

The Story of Watercolour Artist Sarah Stokes

I've lived in Wolverhampton most of my life now, but even though I've always been a creative person I'd never taken it upon myself to see what the creative scene in Wolverhampton is actually like. Then, in summer 2016 I decided to actively find out and get to know some local creatives. It was during this time I found out what kind of events take place at the Newhampton Arts Centre, and which artists and photographers have their own studios set up there. I met Sarah Stokes very briefly when I wandered into her studio during an event last summer, and when I started this project of mine I knew I had to get in touch with her for a feature.

The Story of Charlotte Spivey and White Willow Hypnotherapy

When I discovered Charlotte on social media I had to get in touch with her since I feel mental health and therapy is a subject that many readers are likely to connect with. Guaranteed we all know someone who has or is suffering from depression, panic attacks and anxiety. I for one didn't realise how common these were until I went to university, where many of my fellow students have created projects based around mental health and have used photography as a therapeutic tool. Charlotte treats adults as well as children, and in this post I'll be sharing her story of becoming a Hypnotherapist and starting White Willow Hypnotherapy to treat adults.
