I started writing stuff on the internet in 2010. It was mostly about make-up until I realised that there’s only so much you can say about lipstick and also that I am not good-looking enough to be a beauty writer. Instead I took to the internet to vent my feelings on all the things that are seemingly put on this earth solely to piss me off, of which there are many.

After finishing university with an utterly useless degree in Politics & English in 2010, I got in a job in advertising where my specialist knowledge of 17th century poetry has gone completely untapped. I currently live in Islington with my two wonderful, long-suffering housemates, who even after a year of begging won’t let me get a dog.

I met Carla mid-way through university where we discovered a shared interest in fizzy wine, cute typography and making videos of our mutual friend Becky rolling around in PVA glue and gravy granules so we could become internet famous. (We actually managed over 100,000 hits on YouTube, which we thought was pretty good going.)

After graduating from Loughborough in 2011, Carla moved to North West London where she works as a freelance illustrator and graphic designer specialising in infographics. Her creative juices are for hire, so if you’re ever in the market for some custom website graphics, portraiture or any other arty shit you can visit her website at

Website Design

Incurably Curious is hosted on and uses the Surburbia theme with the Custom CSS upgrade. The CSS was designed and coded by me with graphics and illustration by Carla Juniper.

    I like champagne. Does that count as fizzy wine? Ladies, you just got a follower. Looking forward to more.

      Champagne is the ultimate in fizzy fine! We couldn’t afford it at university though, so we’d get really cheap nasty Cava or Prosecco. ;)

    Neat place you have here! Seems you two work well together because the design is lovely and not overpowering in the least; your content really shines! Definitely following to see more :)

    I really like Suburbia theme but never imagined that it can turn into something great like what you did. Congrats and more power to your Tandem! =)
