On Change – I Need A New Name!

Hello, Hi! It’s been quite a while now hasn’t it? I suppose you could say my life has changed quite a lot in the last year or so and blogging has kind of sat on the back burner for a little while.

12 Reasons To Eat And Drink Your Way Around Hackney Wick

East London isn’t exactly a secret with how much its areas are becoming vibrant “must visit” places. Hackney Wick has all the makings of Shoreditch and Dalston in terms of how quickly its blossomed into a hub where people want to hang out, but has managed to remove the part where you’re left feeling like an utter dickhead for not being cool enough to hang out there from its makings. So for that reason and the fact that I feltRead more

Why Every Girl Needs An Online Tribe

Back in the days of dial up internet, Myspace and Msn, I remember my mum instilling the fear of God into me over not talking to strangers on the internet. Stay away from Habbo Hotel, she would warn me. Every now and then she would inspect my list of Msn pals and make sure that they were all people that I actually knew in real life and weren’t people I’d met on the good old inter-webs. While I am thankfulRead more

My Very Hungry Guide To Kings Cross

Growing up in Barnet always found my usual jaunts to be the likes of Camden, Leicester Square, Covent Garden etc. Kings Cross was always just a tube station that I’d see on the map, and never held any reason for me to go and spend any real time there. Fast forward to the last couple of years, and its actually become a real regular for me. Living in Welwyn Garden City, meeting up with my friends is usually here asRead more

I’ve been living for the weekend and holidays for quite a long time now. Working full time in the week has left me absolutely gagging for that sweet, fun weekend ahead! That was until my tax bill propped up around the corner and I realised I needed to SAVE SAVE SAVE.

Breaking My Blog Silence On Sexual Assault: #Metoo

Good evening my lovelies, Tonight I’ve been flicking through my social media accounts cheering on every strong woman I’ve seen with #metoo as their status. Some have written stories about their experience whilst others have left nothing more than these two incredibly powerful words. What exactly is the me too movement? I never actually thought I’d end up writing about a topic like this on here as its my happy space that I get to keep protected from horrible memories.Read more

My Favourite Moments of 2016

2016 hit most as the year of the big scary. It started with a Gorilla and continued making it’s way through many big dogs in the celeb world. We saw more terrorist attacks than I can remember from any year prior to this during my lifetime, the UK decided to make the shitty move of Brexiting and then Trump got voted as prez. Whilst I can see how that was in fact a really shit year. A lot of peopleRead more

Why I’m Gonna Keep Bowling Through Life “Like A Girl”

I know it’s bad; but it’s only a recent thing that I’ve been able to stand with a straight posture, my head held high, a smile on my face and declare that I am a feminist. I’m a bra a wearing, makeup experimenting feminist! Really though, being a girl is 1/2 of the best sex you could have been born as. The other 1/2? You could’a been born a bloke which is equally badass. My kinda feminism isn’t about shoutingRead more
