Welcome to leannecresswell.uk

I’m Leanne (if that wasn’t obvious already), and I’m a 23-year-old gal from East London. I am also about to become a Journalism Graduate – yikes! Call me mad, but I’m strangely excited to be entering the ‘real world.’

When I’m not blogging, you can find me Podcasting, spending my monthly wage in a coffee shop, watching Disney films, or annoying my dog – I don’t leave him alone because he is so cute!

Let’s throw it back to 2014 when I was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia. I decided to create a blog so that I could document my journey, and it was here when I fell in love with blogging. Later down the line, it felt like Cancer was the only thing that shaped my life and blog, and so I began to feel exasperated. My blog was my escapism, yet all I would write about was Cancer. It became too much, and out of irritation, I deleted my blog.

In hindsight, I should have kept my blog active, as I knew it helped others in similar situations. But then again, it’s difficult when you’re going through so many emotions.

I’ve always said to myself that I will start another one, and in 2018, that’s exactly what happened!

I’m really excited to start this blogging tangent again! This time, my blog will feature Lifestyle, Travel & Food posts – I am a mahoosive foodie! 

Also, since I have been in remission for 4 years now, I am in a much better headspace and have began to accept that Cancer doesn’t define who I am as a person. So, I definitely, want to cover health in the future!

Anyway, I have a tendency to waffle, so I’ll let my blog posts do that instead!
