About

Hi! My name's Rosamund or Rose. I grew up in the East of England and I now live in Berlin, Germany, a couple of blocks away from the water.

I started this blog in 2012 while living in Leicester, studying French & German at university (hence the French name, which means "Rose elsewhere"), rounding off a youth spent tinkering with MSN Spaces, LiveJournal, and Tumblr. I had a brief stint in Quebec before moving to Berlin permanently.

In addition to my part-time job at a film agency, I work freelance as a translator (German into English) and write (English). You can read some of my recent non-blog writing here. I am also working on my first novel.

I like peanut butter, bad movies (The Room, Showgirls, pretty much anything starring Nicolas Cage), pub quizzes, nice stationery, grey marl clothing, and sometimes going to shows.

Catch me on Twitter, Instagram, and Goodreads, and Last.fm!

This should go without saying, but please don't publish any of my photographs and pretend they're yours. If you absolutely have to use them, ask first and credit me! Stealing them is bad form! Thanks.
