The furloughs & the fur-highs #1


Unkategorised

As I am writing this it is 21:49; I have a beer ninety degrees to my left and I am just about to put some water on to boil, to create a very high-brow one-woman banquet of pesto pasta. If it was 2017 and I could see myself now, I’d recoil, fearing I hadn’t outgrown […]

Sticking to your Goals in 2019


Unkategorised

While a lot of us make new goals to soften our January 1st hungover, there’s only a real emphasis for us to stick to them in January, rather than for the next eleven months too. Today I headed out with the boyfriend for a Sunday morning walk. One of the three small changes I made […]

How to get Back into Blogging


Unkategorised

When I woke up to the first day of 2019 I knew, alongside my resolutions, I wanted to start populating my blog with my nonsense thoughts again. *Pictures looking like Hilary Duff in The Perfect Man as she re-caps her day with the help of her keyboard.* When I fall out of blogging, much like […]

Why English Grads Should Do Freelance Writing


Unkategorised

As of today I have been freelance writing for a whole year. Just before this day last year I was a fresh-faced English graduate only able to secure a couple to a few shifts a week from the Saturday job I landed at sixth form. When I received the “you’ve got the job” email, sat […]

How to Stop Feeling You’re Behind


Unkategorised

I wrote about how to be a productive morning person on Wednesday and, shortly after, was looking through The Anna Edit blog and stumbled across THIS post about what to do if you’re feeling behind with work. As usual, Anna spoke to me on a million different bloggy levels. She is my organisation inspiration and […]

How to Be a Productive Morning Person


Unkategorised

I come from a family of morning people. In my house, a sleep in means waking up at seven in the morning and waking up past eight requires a disapproving glare. Admittedly I am not as devout to seven AM as the rest of my family; if I’m honest, however, the rest of them should […]

Three Films


Unkategorised

I used to spend the majority of my pocket money on DVDs. Nothing thrilled me more than going to ASDA and buying a film I’ve wanted to purchase for forever before it finally was priced at £4. I still own every one of these films and could never ever imagine getting rid of the likes […]

An Ode to the Disorganised


Unkategorised

I’m an organisation freak. Alongside my ability to cross one eye while moving the other (Britain’s Got Talent, eat your heart out), I consider my organisation my most valuable skill. Although I don’t think my family who have to tolerate my sometimes frequent alarms do- I’m working on it, mum; I promise. Once upon a […]

Why Straight People Need to See Love, Simon


Unkategorised

As a straight person, it was hard to ignore the niggling thought in my head telling me there was something toxic in the floods of tears that attacked my face throughout seeing the film Love, Simon. I wiped away yet another tear as the credits rolled and I turned to my boyfriend. “Did you like it?” He […]
