So today I want to talk about that awful situation…the one where you have to say ‘no’ to someone you really don’t want to let down. Unfortunately, sometimes we have to stand up for ourselves and let down someone that might be relying on you. Whether you let them down for selfish reasons, or for unavoidable reasons, it really does suck either way.Read More »
Ok so now I’ve turned 27, I need to stop believing I’m just ‘mid-twenties’, but in fact, approaching my late twenties *hides under a blanket*. When I was 18, all shiny and new in the world of ‘real life’, I seriously thought that I would have myself sorted by now. I’d know where I was going, what I was doing, I’d be married or at least engaged, maybe even planing children. I’d have travelled the world, experienced all kinds of wild and wonderful things. I’d be able to poach an egg. WELL 18-year-old me, how wrong you were… Read More »
What’s up guys?
So here it is, my first outfit of the day (OOTD) post. Bare (bear?) with me, there’s a first time for everything! No I’m not going to pretend I’m super fashionable, and know all there is to know about style, who the newest model is or the importance of contouring, but I like to think I know what suits me personally. So I plan on bringing you some bits and bobs from the high street, as well as online bargains and of course, how I style my Black Milk. So…without further ado…Read More »
Its been a couple of weeks since we last spoke, and wow, what a couple of weeks its been. It was my 27th birthday and as it turns out, I have amazing friends and family. Let me start from the beginning.Read More »
This evening I went along to an event at the Cheltenham Comedy Festival. It was hosted by Sarah Millican, along with a panel of other female comedians (or just comedians – ya know, i’m all for equal rights!) along with the editor of Standard Issue Magazine, Mickey Noonan.
Now I’d never heard of Standard Issue Magazine before tonight. In fact my mum just got us tickets because we both love Sarah Millican. But boy, did I love the show!Read More »
Ok so the French police are currently in the news for asking a woman to remove her ‘Burkini’. If you are not in the know, a Burkini (or Burquini) is essentially swimwear designed for Islamic women to go to the beach in, feel comfortable and protect their modesty, if they so wish. In fact, plenty of non-Islamic women have purchased them – Nigella Lawson being one of many. Like, its literally a water proof Burka but with a Hijab scarf type thing instead of the completely covered face. To wear on the beach. Or at the pool. That is it.Read More »
Good evening! Hope everyone’s well. Just wanted to update on what’s going on in my life.
Jack and I have moved house, to the area I grew up in and love. We’ve moved from our 5th floor flat with no lift and a damp patch on the wall to a beautiful little house with a garden and a quiet neighbourhood. It’s amazing.
I don’t have the whole house in order yet, and I have a few bits and pieces I need to make and repurpose to make it more homely, but I have a couple of snaps now if you’re interested…
I’m back, with a snazzy new name and some pretty awesome ideas! Those of you that know me, know I love mermaids, hence the name change. A lot has changed since we last spoke…where do I begin?!
Ok so maybe the biggest news of all…I got a kitten! She’s my baby, she’s called Luna and is just the cutest little thing you’ll ever see! She’s just past 5 months, but being the runt, she’s still as diddy as ever!Read More »
