It was only the other day, when I was online shopping-not-shopping, I somehow pressed the 'order now, have it tomorrow!' button. As it turns out, the power of persuasion really doesn't make your dreams comes true... But it does bring you an unnecessary and probably not environmentally sustainable fancy dress costume. Friend: "what have you… Continue reading Reader, I bought it (and now I regret it)
You know you're an adult when doctor appointments become less 'help me, I have a cold' and more 'welcome to the party, here are my organs'. *You should probably stop reading now if you're squeamish.* The Midult But there's definitely no room for shyness when you're having an MOT on your reproductive system. If you're… Continue reading QLC to room 101 please
I recently wrote about the reality of breaking-up - the chore of untagging yourself from endless holiday photos and figuring out who should get custody of the pug-patterned oven gloves (me) and the toaster (also me). 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)
Girls Think I'm Funny The Quarter Life Crisis wouldn't be complete without a messy break-up - followed by tears, cocktails, wine, more cocktails, therapy and an unwelcome appreciation for Celine Dion.

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 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 dairy and gluten free fun, obviously). But behind… Continue reading Deliciously ‘sh*t I read the recipe wrong’
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”
