Dear 23year old Ames!

LESSONS FROM YOUR 23RD YEAR ❤️‍🩹 Definitely feel like we’re adulting back in London (vs ‘studenting’). Good to get the odd fix up in Leeds but the vibe has definitely shifted for the girls up there now they’re having to actually study a bit! 🤣 I know it sucks to still be living with the […]

Dear 22year old Ames!

LESSONS FROM YOUR 22ND YEAR 🎢 You, Juz and Ali land jobs at the New Look store in the city centre. This is courtesy of the recruitment genius of one @hollybarras who thought three hungover idiots in baseball caps at the back of an open day were clearly the pick of the bunch. Being late continues to […]

Dear 21year old Ames!

LESSONS FROM YOUR 21ST YEAR 🗝 I know this gig isn’t doing much for you on the academic front. But your latest emotions on that are worth suffering for now – certainly doesn’t seem to be stopping you enjoying the full University ‘experience’ 😳 🎓 The only thing that truly IS suffering, is your waistline. […]

Dear 20year old Ames!

LESSONS FROM YOUR 20TH YEAR 🤪 Two entire decades of life Ames 🤯 After deliberating over University and road trips to a couple of campuses – you decide it’s a goer. Said road trips also bring the added bonus of ‘colourful’ and very deep chat with Mads 😵‍💫 Your current job at the PR company […]

Dear 19year old Ames!

LESSONS FROM YOUR 19TH YEAR 😵‍💫 Holy shitballs Ames – school is OUT 🤯 Making it to Year 13 earns you the right to sit on your arse as a steward for the annual charity walk. Try not to let your deck chair with BBQ set-up distract you from looking out for the safety of […]

Dear 18year old Ames!

LESSONS FROM YOUR 18TH YEAR 🎉 Other than a final (supposedly) dancing school show and its dramatic plot twist – the MILLENNIUM is upon us 🥂 Better take a ton of booze in a backpack to London for the fireworks – just in case the world ends 👀 On a night where millions descend on […]


SPECIAL EDITION! LESSONS FROM MRS ARNOULD (aka ‘Phylly’) 🎭 For the first time so far in this exercise, I’ve had to reach for the tissues! 🥹 The ripple effect of this absolute legend is quite profound to me as I document my 18th year. It’s a no-brainer that this lady gets her own tribute! 🙌🏼 […]

Dear 17year old Ames!

LESSONS FROM YOUR 17TH YEAR 💰🚗 🎓 “Ladies and gentlemen of the class of ‘99… WEAR SUNSCREEN” 🎶 I wish we’d all been listening to the wisdom in this @bazlurhmann tune ⤴️ a little closer 🥺 I blame raging hormones and the far more emotionally in-tune anthems of the Backstreet Boys 🤦🏼‍♀️ SUCH a bittersweet time 🥲 […]

Dear 16year old Ames!

LESSONS FROM YOUR 16TH YEAR 💋🍻 🎓 There’s going to be plenty of occasions where circumstances give you very little certainty about the future. Just take the next step rather than worrying about the next ten – things generally work out for the best and you’ll conserve a whole lot of emotional energy. On that, […]
