The inspiration and introduction

Creating the content I want to see in the world

My name is Mariah, but I'm also known to some friends as 'Riah' (pronounced rye-ah). I’m a London living, popcorn eating, essential oil diffusing, Neo-Soul listening twenty-something-year-old with a passion for arts, soul and community.

This means I love inspiring myself and others to live mindfully to appreciate the beauty in the everyday. This blog was made to indulge in more of those moments; so welcome to this journey!

If you love those ‘lose-track-of-time’ conversations with friends on the big questions, you’ll feel right at home here.

This blog was birthed from the craziness of 2020 and all questions it raised about humanity. It felt like a good time to combine my passions into one humble corner of the internet to join the many discussions. However, instead of adding to the noise, I wanted to create the content I wished I could see in the world found in one place. Somewhere that combined social issues with wellness and creativity in a seamless way.

The world is a hectic place to navigate at the moment, so I hope that as I write we can journey together to make sense of it. Unify to celebrate, lament, learn, grow and progress along a joint path into 2021 and beyond.

I truly enjoy creative writing, and asides from the work found on this site I also write freelance for businesses. I write press releases, copywriting, short essays, thought pieces, poetry, cultural critiques and reviews. For more information on bookings, please visit my About page.

If listening to words rather than reading them is more your cup of tea, I'm currently developing a podcast to make my content as accessible as possible so please feel free to check it out here.

I go by @riah_writes on socials, so don’t be shy to say hi. Sending lots of love and positive vibes.
