This is what happened when I followed my horoscope to the letter
I have a feature in the January issue of ELLE magazine! It’s about my journey from London to India to Nepal and back again and all the crazy sh*t I got up to along the way.

I have to say, I consider myself extremely lucky to have an amazing editor at ELLE magazine. Hannah has supported my writing career since way back in 2011 when I entered their wonderful talent contest. Not only is she a genuinely nice person, she’s also noticed over the years the sorts of projects I love working on, which in the past has included interviewing authors and filmmakers.
So it was a moment of wonderful and strange synchronicity when Hannah called me up on my return from India last year to ask if I was into horoscopes, (um, YES!!!) and would like to help out revamping some of their astrology content? While pondering whether Hannah is indeed a psychic, I mentioned the small matter of my little astro tattoo of the symbol Jupiter, which I had done after reading none other than my ELLE horoscope! Intrigued, she asked for a pitch and the attached article is the story that followed their fateful predications.
It’s always strange writing about something so personal in a national magazine. I worried whether people would think I was some kind of new age nut, then realised I don’t really care what other people’s reactions would be. Taking risks and putting myself out there is like crack, it’s addictive to do something waaaay outside your comfort zone and… survive. Nay, THRIVE.
I hope you find my story inspiring, that was the idea. And if you think I’m a nutcase, c’est la vie! 🙂
