A little about me.
👋🏻Welcome to This Wonderful Life, a blog that I've created to share what I hope will be helpful insights into various things that I've found useful or interesting. My name's Sarah, and I currently live in York, UK, with my furry little friend Pippin 🐶
I've lived in York for the last 13 years, and if you've never been before you should definitely visit - it's a beautiful historic city. I moved here when I came to University to study Film and Television Production at York St. John, and it didn't take me long to fall head over heels for the cobbled streets, breathtaking architecture and rich history on offer. Straight out of Uni, I set up a film production company with three of my closest friends from the course: Orillo Films. It's been an incredible journey - one that's taken me all over the world, creating amazing content for sailing teams, big brands, and tourism authorities - and a huge learning curve as we expanded from 4 to 14 people over the course of nearly 10 years. I now manage all of the HR sides of the business, which I love, as well as being a Producer.
Over the last couple of years, I've found a real lease for living the healthiest, happiest life possible, and I always try and take a step back to appreciate what I have and think of the bigger picture when faced with difficult times. I wanted to share some of my passions and learnings through a blog, in case anyone out there might find them helpful/insightful. So you'll find a mixture of everything from health & wellbeing advice, travel tips and favourite places to visit, right through to restaurant reviews and coffee shop guides.
I hope you find my blog useful in some way, I'd love to hear from you if you do!
