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…

Angry.

I’ve taken showers at the gym hundreds of times. I’ve never had any strong opinion on them. They’re just a convenient place to splash purple shampoo. Then this week happened. And suddenly those gym showers don’t seem so neutral anymore. Now I look at them and think that they’re basically like every guy I knew when I was seventeen. A…

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…

I purchased this bag! (Personally I’m rather obsessed with it,…

My small wins of the week #2

I found a new favourite blogger to obsess over. Her name is Morgie, and she is AWESOME!! (Find her here.) These ridiculous little socks are basically… Right? (They make me inexplicably happy.) I’m on the map! Literally, there’s a place in Essex called Cramphorn Walk (my last name is Cramphorn!) It’s now officially on my bucket list to go to…

The flamingo that became a conundrum. 

There’s certain member of my family who is obsessed with – what I like to call – YouTube drivel. Over the years she’s inflicted me – and no doubt a tonne of others – to a never ending collection of wedding dances, cat videos and people butchering ‘Let it Go’. Each time she promises that they’ll leave me in hysterics,…
