Being a newbie in London, I haven’t had the chance (or the money) to really explore places yet… especially the fancy places. I was so excited when I got talking to a fellow blogger and traveller, Eppie, who invited me along for some cocktails at a hotel in Marlyebone. I had never been to that… Read More Reform Social, Marylebone
Financial independence – the two words no twenty something year old wants to hear. You’ve made the decision to fly the nest, become the adult you’re meant to be and live the way you want too, filling your time with restaurant lunches and daily shopping trips -but SHIT, does that mean we have to pay… Read More Financial independence
Bereavement: the time we spend adjusting to loss. I am currently going through a bereavement. Not of a human thankfully but I am currently grieving camp life. Yep I’m in a period of adjusting to a loss of a fun filled summer, of 10 weeks I would usually be in the scorching Southern heat and… Read More London life and camp bereavement
Last month I was on a spa day. There I was sat in the comfiest fluffy robe, lounging around like a lady of leisure flicking through a magazine. The selection of magazine’s were your usual lot; pages of celebrity gossip, evaluating people’s fridges and what you possibly can’t be without this season. There were countless… Read More Are we scared to love ourselves?
I must have explained my situation and thought process into my decisions at least 15 time since I started my ‘new life’ on Monday. If you even want to call it that. To me it was just doing something new, getting a better job than I could have got in Sheffield and having a bit… Read More New city, new job
It’s here, I can smell the Chanel perfume and Michael Korrs leather – it’s Valentines day. Whoop-de-fucking-woo. I really really don’t like Valentines day. Now you’re probably thinking that I’m a single and bitter and that if I was in ‘a proper relationship with someone you love you’d feel differently’ – well I am and… Read More Why am I so anti-Valentines day?
We all know diets, ‘clean’ eating (is that pizza with soap suds?!) and fitness regimes are all the rage these days. I can’t check our twitter or get lost in a good magazine without being bombarded with things we should be eating, girls with 0% body fat and the things that we may be eating that GOD FORBID may… Read More How to keep UNhealthy on the road
L.A – land of the stars (literally), the Hollywood sign and the most beautiful people in the world. So why didn’t I love it? I so wanted too. As I landed at LAX I knew this was going to be amazing, but bit by bit I was let down, frustrated and just generally so bloody… Read More Why didn’t I like L.A?
I love love love travelling, as you all probably know. But on the road even I get frustrated with life and just want to be back in Sheffield on my settee with a cuppa watching Come Dine With Me, living the simple life. I mean these thoughts are only temporary – but they happen. It can… Read More How to get through those tough travel days
As we end a year and begin a new, people always seem to get really emotional and nostalgic. I’m the same. I’m not one of these ‘New Year, New Me’ dickheads because I know I’m most probably going to be the same clumsy, greedy, sometimes very grumpy idiot that I always have been. Hopefully with a… Read More Goodbye 2015
