RIP Fridge

As any self-respecting adult knows, everything is better when there are snacks involved. And as these self-respecting adults will tell you, the involvement of snacks is absolutely nothing to do with the avoidance of real-life problems (like never-ending emails and unaffordable rent) and is actually a viable hobby. For example, that time I made chocolate… Continue reading RIP Fridge

That time I (almost) hung out with the Doves

My friend runs a market stall outside the post office in Chorlton. Every so often I pop down and help him out - usually by trying on all the sunglasses or buying stock from other people's stalls (mostly Plant Pot Pete whose impressive array of plants is feeding my cactus obsession). When he's not delboy,… Continue reading That time I (almost) hung out with the Doves

Grab your coat, you’ve pulled (it over your head and got stuck)

Apart from that time my friend fell over the kerb on a night out and dragged me down with her, my favourite part of my mid-twenties has to be the sudden and unexpected fashion crisis that's come with it. Like most 90s kids, I wanted to rock up to every jelly-themed birthday party or primary… Continue reading Grab your coat, you’ve pulled (it over your head and got stuck)

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

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

Barca-loner

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