“Hey…thank you for stumbling across my little corner of the internet. For as long as I can remember I’ve always wanted a blog. A site where I could build a community and have creative freedom. Navigating Twenties was an idea that blossomed into reality in 2019 on my twentieth birthday. It’s been a lot of trial and error to get the blog to where it is today but I’m so happy with this brand I’ve created…

For those who don’t know me- hi, my name is Alice. I was born in Sheffield but I’m now based in Greater Manchester. In 2021 I completed my undergraduate degree in English Literature and Education Studies at Durham University. I’m currently studying for a MA in Publishing at Manchester Metropolitan University…

I love the theatre, overpriced pumpkin spiced lattes & gingerbread hot chocolates, all films from the 80s & 90s. I have a crippling fear of sharks- I blame my dad for showing me Jaws at age 6. My favourite food is pizza. I can never say no to a crêpe. My favourite places I’ve travelled to, so far, are New York and Kefalonia. My childhood crushes were Patrick Swayze, Robin Williams and Jack Black- take what you will from that…

When I turned 20 I felt this enormous pressure. It felt like I had an abundance of opportunities yet simultaneously felt like there was not enough time to complete all the things I believed I should be ticking off in my twenties- a successful career, marriage, children, travelling, partying. I searched everywhere for guidance but was met with nothing. So I decided to fill that gap and create a hub where twenty-something year olds could visit and feel less alone…

I hope you stick around and join our community. It would be lovely to have you”
