I Do … (want dessert)

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)

Oops I did it again

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

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.

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'.
