I’ve Been Carrying Some Guilt…

Over the past few months I was going to write about a lot of things. For example… I was going to describe the time I was stopped in the city, by a guy who thought I was an art student. I was going to compare how the conversation went in my head, to how it went in reality. (Hint, in…

See Ya Summer…You’ve Been Hella Deece. 

At the time of writing I’m as equally unsure on my feelings towards the word hella, as I am on my feelings on the word deece. (Are they words? Should they be words? I kind of want them to be words. Is that wrong? IDK.) I am, however, very sure that the last weeks of summer went by in an…

COLLAB: A Letter To My Teenage Self. 

So – in case you missed it yesterday – me and my super buddy Chips, have been working on another sensational collaboration. The premise is pretty simple – she wrote a letter to her future self, I wrote a letter to my younger self – and now we’re publishing each other’s. (#Twinning.) Yesterday I showed you her letter. Today, mine……

FORO (Fear of Running Out.)

You’ve heard of FOMO, right? Fear of Missing Out? Well, I don’t think I’m really a sufferer. I can’t be. I’m so absent on the whole Social Media movement that by the time I hear about an exciting event, well, it’s already happened months ago. But that doesn’t mean I’m immune to all of these acronymous fears. Mine is just…

I Let Myself Down. 

I have an impressively short list of regrets. It mainly consists of my eyebrows circa 2015, and ever agreeing to watch Star Wars Episodes 1 – 6. But, as of this weekend, I have another one to add to the list. No, I didn’t watch Episode 7 (if I ever do that I’ll just delete the entire blog, okay?) what…

50 Small Things That Make You Smile 😊

1. When someone brings a box of donuts to the office. 😆 2. When you have a good hair day. 😊 3. When you wake up and realise you still have 2 hours left to snooze. 😊 4. When someone says your eyebrows are on point. 😊 5. When you get to the till and the item you want to…

This Girl Decides To Quit Her Job And Heads to New York City. 

I’ve been planning this post in my head for weeks. Trying to find the perfect way to announce  a pretty big  the biggest development in my life. How do you tell everyone you’re quitting your job to actually write full-time? By ripping off Vance Joy lyrics, of course. It was admittedly fairly flimsy logic. I just like the song, and…

My small wins of the week #3

I learned how to use chopsticks! (And actually managed to eat a whole bowl of rice using them!) ​ ​ I happened to stumble upon this… ​​ ​ (Which, in case it’s not obvious, is the thing I never even knew I was missing in life… a candy conveyer belt!) I purchased this bag! (Personally I’m rather obsessed with it,…

50 people who are really, really annoying. 

Worryingly, this isn’t exhaustive. 1. People who scrape plates / yoghurt pots. 😡 2. People who chew loudly. 😡 3. People who talk with their mouth full of food. 😠 4. People who talk with their mouth full of drink. (If you’ve seen it happen, you’ll know.) 😤 5. People who start singing a different song when I’m already singing.…

An open letter to Benjamin Judge (the man who never even knew he inspired me.)

Dear Ben, This is one of the scariest things I’ve ever done – and I’ve eaten sushi in Tijuana. It’s ultimately going to go one of two ways… You’ll either be so metaphorically moved by my flattery you’ll metaphorically beam from ear to ear, or you’ll be so literally terrified you literally issue a restraining order. That last one is the…
