About & Contact


My name is Becky and I am a woman in my late 30s who moved to Leeds in autumn 2016 for a fresh start and some new adventures. On inaflowerdress I blog about settling into my new life, art, poetry, vegetarian food, music, books, TV and theatre…

I also have some of my writing published elsewhere. Below are links to my articles and reviews which are also all collected in the tab ‘Published Writing’:

For Socialist Review magazine I have reviewed art exhibitions, films, books and plays: http://socialistreview.org.uk/author/rebecca-townesend

I have started writing for South Leeds Life. My first article can be found here: https://southleedslife.com/beestons-own-sculpture-triangle/

I have had a blog post shared on the Left Bank Leeds website: https://leftbankleeds.org.uk/plant-yourself-for-some-reflection/

For Girls That Gig I wrote some music and theatre reviews plus an article in defence of selfie culture. Unfortunately Girls That Gig no longer run and their website has been taken down. I will be sharing my articles in a blog post here in due course.

This is my second blog. My first blog can be found at http://www.onandoffbuses.wordpress.com

‘Inaflowerdress’ comes from a much loved band…it is a lyric by Idlewild from their debut EP ‘Captain’.
