Hello there – thanks for stopping by!
I’m Pip, the girl behind the pages of Life Unedited. I’m a Brit in her mid-twenties, dabbling in yoga and strength training, with a love for all things food and coffee related, and who’s on a constant quest for an adventure.
By day, I work in digital marketing for a charity, whilst by night I indulge my passion for writing in this little space I call home.
Since I was yay high I’ve had a fascination for the world and the diverse people and places that make up this crazy huge planet. This led to me finding every way possible to incorporate travel into my life – spending half a year working to fund half a year travelling when I left school, interning in Argentina for 6 months in 2014, returning to Buenos Aires to research my thesis a year later and finding every excuse to go exploring in between. I am completely hooked on the feeling of discovering somewhere new, and what you learn about yourself along the way.
It was this intrigue and sheer passion to learn of the stories that make up the ins and outs, and ups and downs, of life itself that drove me to start Life Unedited.
These days most of my travels take place with my South African boyfriend (known as M around these parts) at my side as we conquer the world, one country at a time, before returning home to South East London. I hope you stay around for the adventure!
Life Unedited was really started to share just that – life in all it forms, no edits, no filters but just the sheer joy and the honest struggles that make up our journeys on this planet.
In the 21st century we are bombarded by a multitude of different messages, so much so that the true simplicity and joy of life can get lost along the way. Let’s bring that back.
For me, life is about the hard times just as much as the good. I truly believe that even dark moments help us to shine the light brighter and find new purpose in ourselves. This little space is for exploring the joy in discovering places anew, the smaller struggles of the everyday, those quiet moments that somehow have so much meaning, the little things that bring the biggest of smiles and the stories of others that bring new perspective.
My goal with Life Unedited is to help inspire you to feel that little bit more connected with the world around you, be it through taking that next adventure and discovering a new way of life, stepping out of your comfort zone in your own unique way, or simply by slowing down and taking pleasure in the simple every day. And if not, I hope you enjoy your reading!
