About Me

Well, hello there!

Welcome to my blog, ‘gathertherosebuds’- which was born as a place for me to dump all of the nonsense in my brain into one place!


My name’s Rachel, but I prefer Rach. I’m a 24-year-old who’s currently shacked up with my husband and my cat Woody, just outside of London!

I’ve got a degree in Sociology & Criminology and an MA in Journalism, but as of this moment in time, I’m working as a Social Media Officer for the UK’s biggest charity!

I love words, writing and all things social media, which means that it’s basically the perfect job for me!


Well, I’m primarily a ‘write whatever I fancy kinda blogger’, so I normally ramble on about anything that’s sparked my interest. I’m an avid bookworm and I love films, so I also occasionally review stuff like that. I also chat a lot about mental illness, having recovered from an eating disorder and managing my anxiety on a daily basis.

I mainly write whatever I fancy that day though, so I hope you enjoy whatever you find here 🙂
