Healthy Mindset

There’s been a lot of talk about mental health recently, and something I think is enormously important is to have people to speak to about how you feel, whether you’re having a great or a terrible day. We live in an age where most things are instant. If we want something, we can get it…

New Year, New Venture

What a year it has been! 2016 has certainly been eventful, and 2017 brings the excitement of having absolutely no idea what will happen. Fingers crossed it’ll have a few less horrific surprises than the last 12 months though! This time last year, I had no job after travelling and was desperately looking to get…

My internet story

The internet is a funny thing, but I think I’m just about getting my head around it. From being picked on at school to hitting 50k followers on Twitter, I’ve had my ups and downs with using the internet, but wouldn’t change a thing. As a kid with a mother who hated technology, I was…

Why I love/hate media

Media is incredible. We have the ability to access information within seconds from anywhere in the world. Promoting, educating and sharing are just a few of the great things media brings. With the click of a button, we’re posting a thought, idea or replying to somebody else’s comment, and it’s as easy as that. Unfortunately,…

The Little Things

In a world where everything is fast-paced, it’s often hard to find time to take a second and enjoy what’s going on around you. Working in media, I’m constantly checking the news, thinking of things which could make stories and even when I’m not working, I’m finding content and thinking of ideas to use the…

The most English problem

As a nation, we are known to find a reason to moan about everything. The other day, I saw a video of a baby with an incredible head of hair, having it blow dried. The hairdryer was clearly on a cool setting, and the baby was loving life. I went on to the comments to…

#WHUPresenter

If you’ve been over to my Twitter (@hollseey), you’ll probably be aware that I have entered to be the new West Ham TV presenter… Mainly because I haven’t shut up about it. Since then, understandably, I’ve received a fair amount of stick. It goes without saying that when you apply for something like this, there…

How Three Lads Pranked The World

We all saw the story of three club reps in Ayia Napa who recently blagged their way onto the wrong boat and ended up in war-torn Syria, at the port of Tartus. Only a day later, James Wallman, 23, Alex McCormick, 19 and Lewis Ellis, 25, revealed on Facebook that the entire story had been…

Happiness

‘Happiness’ is a very broad term. For some of us, it means family, for others, it will be brought by money. But no matter who you are, or what your goals are in life, you can be certain that there will be times that you need a helping hand. Life is full of distractions and…

Trainers and Tiaras

We all have a stereotypical image in our head when we hear the words ‘beauty pageant’. But what really goes on behind the scenes, and what is it actually like to take part? The good news is that you’re about to find out! This weekend, I completed a Spartan Race, clambering over walls and beneath…
