Hello and welcome to Pale + Interesting, a fashion and lifestyle blog by me, Freya.

I started this blog in October 2014 whilst I was job hunting, having graduated from Durham University with a degree in Ancient History. Although my degree subject was really interesting and taught me all the necessary transferable skills etc. it wasn’t totally relevant when it came to pursuing a career in marketing. I’ve always been a creative individual so I decided to establish my own little space on the internet as an outlet for my love of writing, styling and photography. The process made me realise just how much I enjoy creating content. There’s a real sense of satisfaction from not only creating something from nothing, but something you’re proud of, and knowing it will be out there forever. That feeling is magnified when a post receives positive feedback and I know someone has enjoyed reading it.

People often ask what the USP behind my blog is, and without sounding big-headed, I would say it’s me. I write about what I enjoy. (As for the name – I’m most definitely pale, but I’ll let you make up your own mind about the interesting bit!) So, whether it’s what I’m wearing, baking, making, thinking or doing I really hope you enjoy reading my blog. I always love to hear from you so feel free to leave a comment, find me on social media or email me and say hello.
