Hello! I am the Historian, and welcome to An Historian About Town! I started this blog in January 2015 after completing my MA in Early Irish History at University College Dublin and moving back to Winnipeg; I wanted to create a space for those of us who have finished our education (for now?) and are just starting out in life. I don’t have all of the answers but I hope I can help you make your own history!
Things you will encounter here…
•Style– Wholly versed in fashion and barely versed in beauty, Style File Friday is the home of my styling and shopping tips, favourite items and products, sustainable options, style icons, and more!
•Ballet and Arts– Trained in classical ballet for all of my life, you can find reviews of the Royal Winnipeg Ballet productions (as well as ballet books, documentaries, and events), local and far flung museum and historical site visits, as well as cultural festivals and events!
•Travel– While living in Dublin for a year, I caught the travel bug- you can find my memories and recommendations from all of the places that I have visited!
•Books– I typically read 60+ books a year, and am happy to share recommendations- anything from history to fiction to biography to humour will pop up, as well as my monthly Book and Beverage post!
•DIY– I’m a dedicated baker, and I’m pretty handy at making things. Make It Monday (not every week) is the home of recipes and DIYs I’ve tried out!
•Life– The whole point of this- all of the “other” stuff that seems to fill our time, including Weekend with a Westie on Saturdays (featuring @AgnestheLittleWestie), career advice and tips, entertainment recommendations, and anything else that strikes my fancy!
