Keep Calm, we’re going to Ibiza

Nothing says 'settling into adulthood responsibilities' like packing a suitcase full of glitter and running away to Ibiza for four days. But when you're a 20 something in the midst of career and relationship chaos, any opportunity for spontaneous sunshine is welcomed with Gypsy Shrine decorated open arms (that's unicorn and mermaid inspired body glitter,… Continue reading Keep Calm, we’re going to Ibiza

Grandad’s Kitchen

My mum and I recently set up a Vintage market stall. Not only did it upgrade my fashion 'look' from "help me, I'm a 20-something on a budget and a victim of the Quarter Life Crisis" to "help me, I'm a 20-something on a budget and a victim of the Quarter Life Crisis with a ROCKABILLY QUIFF"… Continue reading Grandad’s Kitchen

Netflix and a well deserved nap

I recently discovered that my boyfriend doesn't know the meaning of 'Netflix and Chill'.  Apparently when you're a proper adult, the meaning of 'chill' goes no further than seeing how many Pringles and cookies it's acceptable to eat on a Sunday while watching endless episodes of Storage Wars - then having a well deserved nap.… Continue reading Netflix and a well deserved nap

The high school ‘what am I doing with my life?’ reunion 

  Traditionally, a high school reunion is an opportunity to brag to your former nose-picking, homework-copying friends about how much of a successful adult you've become. "Well, as company director it's a tough life eating caviar on board my private helicopter" "Obviously, all my children learned to speak Chinese before the age of five, can… Continue reading The high school ‘what am I doing with my life?’ reunion

As any self-indulgent, 'soul searching' blog will tell you, a getaway break is always more liberating when you have to travel there on your own. As someone who has always valued friendships with people who live in sunnier climates, I recently made the sensible decision to book a last minute flight to Barcelona to visit… Continue reading Barca-loner

Deliciously ‘sh*t I read the recipe wrong’

If there's one piece of advice I've been given during the Quarter Life Crisis it's 'eat well and look after yourself'. Apparently, in an era of quinoa cravings and avocado addictions, there's never been a better time to embrace the fun of a health food fad (that's diary and gluten free fun, obviously). But behind… Continue reading Deliciously ‘sh*t I read the recipe wrong’

Adulthood is coming, so is the Vengabus

Like many of my friends, I spent most of my childhood pretending to be an adult. From fake marriages in the playground to building the perfect house on the Sims, growing up in the 90s saw crop tops, tamagotchi's, transfer tattoos, platform Skechers and more make-up than the Spice Girls put together as my vital… Continue reading Adulthood is coming, so is the Vengabus

Nana’s last words: “pay the bar bill on your way out”

My Nana’s love for a drink has been the centre of our family entertainment for years. From cracking open the Sherry at 11am to tipsy mother-in-law antics, family get togethers where my Nana and the bar were concerned were filled with quick wit, toe curling inappropriateness and a lot of apologies to handsome foreign waiters.… Continue reading Nana’s last words: “pay the bar bill on your way out”
