Do you ever get those ideas, the ones that don't leave you alone? The ones that nag you and nag you, the ones that you think about last thing at night and first thing in the morning until you finally give in and go 'Alright! I'll do it!.'
This was one of those ideas.
My name is Britt and I run a baking blog called She Who Bakes. What started out as a private diary of my baking adventures that took me on a journey from packet mix to professional has over the past six years become my passion and my career. It saved me life and I simply couldn't be prouder! With hundreds of thousands of followers on social media, a popular Twitter hour and several business and blogging awards, being She Who Bakes is my life and it really is a dream come true. It's something that continues to be my saving grace every single day.
So why am I writing this here? What, or rather who is She Who Blogs?
It has come to my attention recently that as well as baking, I have so many hobbies and loves in my life. So many things that make me smile. I have always documented everything I have done, ever since I was a kid. I remember getting my first diary at 10 and writing in it religiously. This turned into message boards when I was a teenager and then social media and blogs as I became an adult.
Holidays, yoga, working out, pole, Lush, reading, mental health, watching films are all just some of the things I get up to when I've not got an apron on. But there is no place for these hobbies on my established baking blog and considering I love to write, I wanted to give them a home, so here we are.
You won't find any recipes, cake decorating tips or baking tutorials on these pages, but you will find the other side to She Who Bakes. The things that make me laugh, cry, happy, angry and everything in between.
Welcome. It's great to have you here.
