Yo! My name is Laura Céline (or LC. Not Laura. Never Laura). I’m in my late twenties and hail from Australia. Originally from Sydney, I did a lot of growing up around the Hunter Valley and the coastal city of Newcastle. It’s a special place and very close to my heart.
Birdgehls started in a living room out in Zone 5 of West London in 2014. I’d just moved to the UK’s capital and needed a side project to stop me going loopy in between applying for job, after job, after job…
I started up the site with one of my best friends, who was living in New York at the time. We blogged together, until other commitments ate up her time. Now it’s just me here, on my lonesome.
Why the name? The original inspiration came from this haunting song, written by Antony & The Johnsons. Also, because birds are rad. The name remains pluralised, in honour of my pal and the wonderful friendship we have together.
What else should you know?
This blog is not only my writing and photography portfolio – it’s a place of experimentation.
In 2016, I decided I’d dedicate the year to eliminating plastic from my life. Easier said than done, but I’m learning a lot along the way.
Thanks for stopping by!
