Welcome to The Star Jar, a collection of my thoughts, opinions, and ideas. My name is Ellen and this is a blog about my life and adventures. If youโ€™re into books, creativity, feminism, and hilarious anecdotes about twenty-somethings stumbling through life, then this is the blog for you!


I recently rediscovered a love for writing that I thought was long gone, and suddenly I needed an outlet for all the ideas flooding my mind! Thus, The Star Jar was born. I’ve tried blogging a few times in the past, but I always tried to focus too much on one niche and would quickly get bored or run out of ideas. That’s why I’ve decided to start a lifestyle blog – my interests are hugely varied and multi-faceted, so why shouldn’t my blog be?
