About

Hello there!

Thank you for stopping by my blog (formerly Life In Florals), please do enjoy a complimentary, although sadly entirely imaginary, cup of tea. My name is Paris, and I'm from Leicester in the East Midlands of the UK, although I currently spend much of my year living an hour and a half north of home whilst studying History at the University of Sheffield.
My blog aims mostly to write about history, culture and politics, although I will diverge from that often as I like to just write whatever interests me!

Name meaning:
Feather Street is a rough translation of Rue Plumet, the street in Paris on which Valjean and Cosette briefly live in Les Misérables (my favourite musical). 71 refers to the year, 1871 in which the Paris Commune occurred which I am spending my final year of university studying in great depth and doing my dissertation on. I wanted a name that combined my love for musical theatre and for history, and the fact it references my namesake a little is an added bonus!
