Well hello there.
It feels like a Sundaze.
Daisybutter is a cosy space where I let thoughts spill, a home for modern myth-making and to jot down the treasurable moments of each day; all steeped in a dash of magic-seeking folklore. It’s a place for those seeking endlessly to do good and be better.Welcome to the fold。
I’m Michelle, a girl who just loves pasta, her dog, a good oat flat white and afternoons curled up on an armchair with a (big) book. On Daisybutter, you’ll find an archive of features that share my stories about being a British-Chinese woman and about living between cultures in the UK. I also write posts full of practical advice and guidance for surviving your twenties, and I balance it all out with snippets of everyday magic, full to the brim with the little joys and loves that make me ‘me’.
I’m honoured to have appeared on BBC Three Counties Radio, BBC Radio Five Live, Voices of Islam Radio, and Respect the Mic podcast, talking about my experiences as a British-born Chinese woman. Excitingly, I am also currently working on my first book.
Love, Michelle x
