The other day my partner and I went upstairs for a screw. NO - it's not what you're thinking. It's far sexier than that. I'm referring to assembling flat pack furniture (wahoo!). If a global pandemic wasn't enough of a relationship survival test, my fiancé and I decided to level up our adulting endeavours and… Continue reading Stripped

Who let the dog (insurance) out?
It's April 2021. The nation is on the cusp of freedom having been locked away indoors for a year - forced to bake banana bread, watch every show on Netflix and sing Happy Birthday on repeat while washing their hands. The old and vulnerable have been granted access to leave their bubbles and receive the… Continue reading Who let the dog (insurance) out?
Back in my day (when we were allowed outside) life's beauty procedures were less 'Instagram and Botox' and more 'pick out a colour for your train-track braces' #thosewerethedays. If, like me, you wore dental braces through school (complete with bushy hair and an oversized backpack), you'll remember the pain well. So, I was disappointed to… Continue reading Brace Face
Stairway to A&E
Thanks to the global pandemic, we live by one rule - stay at home and watch Netflix (in your pj's and eat all the snacks). So it goes without saying that we shouldn’t put ourselves in situations where we might need to go to hospital. To be fair, Covid or no Covid, that's quite a… Continue reading Stairway to A&E
All Grown Up (ish)
There's nothing like a social media 'engagement' post to really put you off the Internet. But there's nothing like being the one who posted it (guilty). Having spent all of Christmas Eve in my pyjamas, I was intrigued to notice my boyfriend put on his best (and only) shirt for the evening. In a bid… Continue reading All Grown Up (ish)
‘Tis the Season – to be wondering what the f*** 2020 was all about
2020 has been the gift that keeps on giving - except you didn't ask for it and can't return it because it didn't come with a receipt. For a lot of us, Christmas this year will be like no other - but also exactly like every day of the year since March (pyjamas all day,… Continue reading ‘Tis the Season – to be wondering what the f*** 2020 was all about
What’s that coming over the hill? Another Instagram challenge
You know it’s 2020 when you’re busy fearing for your life (thanks COVID) that you totally forgot to participate in the latest vague and confusing Instagram challenge. OOPS. That’s what happened to me when, between scoffing cheese sandwiches and mask shopping, I noticed a flood of black and white selfies on my feed. I quickly… Continue reading What’s that coming over the hill? Another Instagram challenge
Quarantine Life Crisis
You know you're an adult in 2020 when Covid-19 is among us, it's the END OF THE WORLD and you've been tasked with doing your bit (and trying not to get dramatic about it). In order to stop the spread of this deadly virus and save lives, the majority of us have spent this year… Continue reading Quarantine Life Crisis
