Blog of the Week
Hermia’s blog is a combination of beautiful photographs, flamboyant daily rants and gorgeous fashion finds. She describes it as being a ‘Head Blog’ where she talks and writes about anything that is in her head at the time of writing – this gives the blog a personable and intimate feel.
Hailing from Dublin, Hermia has a BA in Journalism and loves shopping, books, old movies, photography, cheese and pancakes, as well as looking at pretty things and having pretty things.
The blog also has a unique section entitled ‘Secret Stories’, where readers anonymously leave their stories, secrets and rants, completely undetected. Entries have now closed, but you can read past stories, many of which are quite moving.
We particularly love her posts around ‘The Giving My Life Some Purpose Project’, where Hermia has created a list of 85 things she wants to achieve to help her make the most out of life. To date, some of the things ticked off her list include learning to bake bread, eating a hotdog in New York, inventing a cocktail, building a fort and hosting a themed party. Among those left to complete are going on a rollercoaster, knitting a scarf, eating macaroons in Paris, sleeping under the stars and writing a note/letter to leave it in a library book. We look forward to reading all about it.
