About

As the name of this website might suggest, I’m Lilly. I am a marketer in the education sector, based in Oxfordshire. The Life of Lilly was born in 2016, originating as a remedy for my first education-free September in sixteen years.

Writing has been my passion for a long time, which was ultimately why I chose to study a creative writing degree at university, and then began blogging. Everything from poetry, to fiction, to the healthy dose of good old honesty I share in this little space of mine.

The Life of Lilly has, over the years, become a creative outlet and – however strange it may sound – like a close friend. My aim is to write about things that resonate. I hope you find something that achieves that for you here – and I’d love to hear what you think.

Some quotes that inspire me…

The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any.

Alice Walker

Nothing haunts us like the things we don’t say.

Mitch Albom

The reason we struggle with insecurity is because we compare our behind the scenes with everyone else’s highlight reel.

Steven Furtick
