There's nothing like a holiday to escape reality. But when my boyfriend and I went on a recent trip, we got more than we bargained for at our Airbnb. We were busy enjoying some peace and quiet when there was an unexpected knock at the door. Standing in the old Georgian apartment, I had a… Continue reading Scare bnb
The other day I was strutting my way to the doctors listening to Cardi B on full blast. Then the doctor prescribed me with an orthopedic insole and I faced the horrible realisation that I'm 27 going on 97. 90s brunch I also had a dentist appointment to get dental braces (sexy), so somewhere during… Continue reading I spy … a GREY HAIR
Thanks to the Quarter Life Crisis, I've been so busy writing about when things go wrong in life, nothing prepared me for when things started going right. Mum: Hannah, there's a 6ft handsome man at the door with chocolate cake. *SILENCE* Me opening the door to my boyfriend when he made my favourite cake: It's… Continue reading Smuggy
A little while ago, a friend asked me if I wanted to be in a play. Thanks to the 'I wonder what would happen if' attitude I've adopted during my 20's, I thought about it for half a second before saying "fuck it, why not". The Midult I was expecting to feel nervous during the… Continue reading To be or not to be … what was the question?

But once the initial crappery of the situation has passed, the time comes to face the world again and… Continue reading I Do … (want dessert)
Every year, like most people, I have a birthday. And every year, grateful to have made it through to the 'next round', I face the same battle between 'call me Beyoncé' and 'well this is embarrassing, let's pretend I'm not here and go back to our normal lives' If this year is anything to go… Continue reading Oops I did it again

For me, this is currently spurred on by the trend in vegan brunches, yoga classes and 'look after yourself' memes #blessed. ImgFlip Luckily, I've discovered secret bars so now I can hide my 'should have gone to… Continue reading Knock, knock. Who’s there? Secret bar. OoOh.
The Midult Now I'm in my mid 20s, inflatable climbing walls and slides that make you scream are just childhood memories. No, now it's all, oh..... inflatable climbing walls and slides that make you scream. Thanks to the UK's first indoor inflatable theme park, it's now acceptable to chill in a ball pool on a… Continue reading Don’t mind me, I’m just off to the inflatable theme park
If there's one thing I've learned in my 20s - it's that adulthood will put you in the shit, literally. Thanks to comedian Luisa Omielan, tackling life's shit is easier when you're using Beyoncé's music as your life soundtrack. Luisa's show 'What Would Beyonce do?' opens with the story of her moving back home at… Continue reading Me, Myself and I (plus the cat)
