In the words of Britney Spears, 'there's only two types of people in this world.' Those who are clumsy (me) and those who follow their clumsy loved ones around with a hoover (my husband). I’d like to mention that my husband is also prone to an embarrassing moment. Like the time his shirt button got… Continue reading Cone of shame

So fresh, so clean
You know you're an adult in 2023 when you've been getting in your ten thousand steps a day. But you know you're truly an adult in 2023 when you achieve these steps via vigorous house cleaning (with neatly folded microfibre cloths and your favourite toy - the steam mop). This is what happened to me… Continue reading So fresh, so clean
Hello from the other side (of 30)
Thanks to the Quarter Life Crisis, I used to celebrate the weekend with Tequila and Nando's. Now, at 31, I spend Saturdays shopping for vegetables and enjoying (enjoying?!) an early morning swim. Who even am I? Apparently this is what the other side of 29 feels like and, clearly, I'm embracing grown-up-ness for all it… Continue reading Hello from the other side (of 30)
It’s a ‘dog eat everything it shouldn’t’ world
You know you're a millennial when you have a dog instead of a child. You know you're truly a millennial when you hang out with your friends and their dogs (feeling envious when one of them says their dog is finally sleeping through the night). Dog ownership, as I've come to learn, is not something… Continue reading It’s a ‘dog eat everything it shouldn’t’ world
You know you're an adult when weekends are less 'vodka shots' and more 'cleaning the kitchen counters for the millionth time that week'. Me: where did all the crumbs come from?!Also me: *eats copious amounts of peanut butter on toast* Some people run marathons at the weekend (for fun?!) others, like me, partake in the… Continue reading Bog Standard
What a tool
Once upon a time, you'd find me at the bar questioning my life choices. Nowadays, I’m in the hardware shop questioning why all my money is spent on sanding blocks and door knobs. I recently moved in to a new house with my husband. If I’m not frantically battling the steam mop, I’m trawling through… Continue reading What a tool
Thanks to society, there's a stigma that women need to achieve everything by the age of 30. *Cue universal uproar*. Thanks to this ridiculousness, women have adopted a Pankhurst-inspired energy to embrace life when things don’t work out by this grand old age. Like me, for example who rebelled against this 'achieving everything' malarky by… Continue reading Hitched
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
