The best picture I have probably ever taken

I took this picture in 2012 and it remains one of the best I have ever taken. I was going through a horrible breakup when my parents (in their infinite wisdom) whisked me away on a much needed holiday to Canada. We were in Kelowna when I took this picture. I'm not one for waxing lyrical … Continue reading The best picture I have probably ever taken

Why I’m proud of Taylor Swift

I'm really proud of Taylor Swift for speaking out about the unwanted physical attention she received from a certain radio DJ - and in turn (quite rightly) winning her court case. The DJ was found to have lifted the back of Swifts skirt and grab her bum while posing for a photo with the star … Continue reading Why I’m proud of Taylor Swift

Another beautiful day in london…

It's raining.  In fact, its been raining all day. Actually I would go so far as to say that it's been raining in a way that is almost exclusive to London (a fine mist that comes from all directions). This is rain that you can't seem to escape. Rain that almost becomes an oppressive smog. … Continue reading Another beautiful day in london…

I’M GOING TO BE A BRIDESMAID!!

I have FINALLY been asked to be a bridesmaid! I have been waiting for this moment with an air of blasé faux disinterest for twenty five years, mostly because my friends are either too commitment phobic or geographically undesirable to let me live my dream. As a result, when I got the text message asking me to … Continue reading I’M GOING TO BE A BRIDESMAID!!

Book review: The life changing magic of not giving a fuck

As adults we all inevitably feel overwhelmed now and again. We have bills to pay, forms to fill, a home to clean, chores to do, people to see, places to go, reunions and family events attend and a sense of obligation that makes saying “no” hard. … With this in mind, a title like ‘The … Continue reading Book review: The life changing magic of not giving a fuck

Remain calm

Like every other person out there, I was looking forward to starting the new year by etch-a-sketching the amount I ate and drank over the holiday period and beginning the self-congratulatory road to both enlightenment and rock hard abs. Sadly, since the beginning of the new year there has been building work going on at … Continue reading Remain calm

Christmas 2016

I think we can all agree that 2016 was a terrible, TERRIBLE year that can't end soon enough. However, Christmas has arrived in the blink of an eye and this year I was entirely unprepared for it. It just sort of turned up like an uninvited house guest demanding special treatment and attention. I am feeling incredibly … Continue reading Christmas 2016

The My abusive relationship with Pretty Little Liars

I have a seriously unhealthy relationship with 'Pretty Little Liars.' Admittedly, as a thirty-something English woman I'm not exactly the target demographic for American teen drama shows. But it turns out binge-watching ‘Scream Queens’ while idly doing the laundry was the gateway drug and now Pandoras box is open. My relationship with this particular show … Continue reading The My abusive relationship with Pretty Little Liars
