The thing about being a crippling introvert, especially when your two out of three words in your unofficial (cringe) job title is ‘social’ and ‘influencer’ (heck even ‘media’ is a plural, SAVE ME), is that you don’t really have friends. By friends I don’t mean the people you hang out with because they look good on your Instagram feed (same logic applies to ordering photogenic food that you hate eating, like muesli – what am I, a bird?), it’s people who actually listen to your nerdery (?), like explaining the difference between Windows 8 and Windows 10 (and why there is no Windows 9* **).

This very blog is the realization that, for the past seven-going-on-eight years, I’ve been looking inwards and playing in front of the looking glass. And for the better half of said eight years, my £19 tripod was a pretty good pal until the day it chucked my (thankfully inexpensive) camera down on the asphalt outside the house, blurted ‘DONE WITH THIS SH*T’ and hobbled off, three legs and all. I knew I had to find some real friends then. Obviously it didn’t come easy – I met people, looked for buttons to press, and occasionally offered ham. I mostly made friends with parking meters and foxes.

*Because Seven EIGHT Nine. LMAO. GET IT. Seven ate Nine.
** This is why I have to buy friends onlinest.

Fast forward to 2016, I’m proud to say this gang of dorks are friends. I may have offered a day-trip to Brighton (chaperoned by this crazy Asian lady driver), carby road-snacks and bottomless-ish Moët & Chandon champagne as bait, but I suspect they would’ve done it for nothing. Let me introduce: You know Sarah: sunshine personified, looks a lot like a goddess, humour like a merry bunny. There’s Charlie - designer, girl crush and the real culprit behind the minimalist movement (Philo who?). Emarr, rising star to the world of the fast-spoken rhymes – SoOo talented IT HURTS (Don’t check his Soundcloud, it’s just full of AWESOME, you wouldn’t like it). Last but not least, albeit not pictured, Simon – whom you all know if you follow on Snapchat (sparkncube) – my feminist, zealous, flaming-ball-of-enthusiasm PA (who I may or may not pay to hang out with me). Cheers, and thank you for the #moetmoment. Who needs hydraulics if five of us can make a car bounce to Dr Dre.

  28. ah you look so glowing and happy! ^_^
    please do a post on your skincare and how you beat eczema!

  29. Shini, how can you be so talented????? friends are only temporary – it is very difficult to find like-minded people…..& we often concentrate on what we don’t like in another person as opposed to concentrating on what we do like……jealousy is another factor that doesn’t let us meet true friends nowadays…..it is very difficult to connect with people…hmmm this post made my mind have a life of its own….questions, doubts….damn, Shini, why are you so talented???

  32. Friendship goalzzz~!!! I hope my bonds of friendship is as colourful and bright as your dress~

  33. As always another gorgeous creation – The colours are just screaming here is spring and summer is around the corner (Summer, when you don’t feel guilty downing glasses of Moet in the middle of the day).

    I love that, sometimes I feel like I’m on the border between extrovert and introvert, but when you find that group that ticks just like you, there’s nothing better.

    By the way, that Seven Eight Nine joke, Classic.
