• My Favourite Murder Podcasts And Why You Should Listen To Them Too

    November 2, 2017

    I’ve been wondering why I’ve been having so many weird, stressful dreams recently and I’ve finally realised what the probable cause is… I listen to too many murder podcasts! No wonder my subconscious is messed up… Every evening when I come in from work I stick on a podcast episode and listen to the host’s…

  • 10 Netflix Originals You Should Be Watching

    October 17, 2017

    I’m notorious for having a thousand TV series on the go at once. I’m not a big fan of binge watching (unless something has cliff hangers at the end of every episode – ‘Heroes‘, I’m talking to you!) So I tend to have a lot of series going on at the same time and I…

  • Why The UK Ivory Trade Must Stop!

    October 16, 2017

    On October 7th 2017 whilst we all went about our leisurely Saturday’s, hundreds of people showed up in London’s Parliament Square to protest the UK’s part in the world ivory trade.

  • My Camping Weekend At Knights Stainforth

    September 25, 2017

    I never liked the idea of camping. If you had asked me this time last year if I would like to go camping for a weekend in Autumn, I would have probably laughed in your face, said ‘ABSOLUTELY NOT‘ and proceeded to explain why. (How gross you feel when you wake up in the morning…

  • Gin Night At The White Hart Hotel

    September 8, 2017

    Gin has recently been growing on me, adding another alcohol to my list of favourite bevvies. I don’t drink fizzy drinks but I sure drink alcohol… Don’t even get me started on Slingsby’s rhubarb gin – mixed with elderflower tonic, it is possibly the tastiest drink around… and therefore possibly the most dangerous! So give…

  • How To Make The Most Of Your Disney Cruise

    September 4, 2017

    When I tell people that I worked for Disney Cruiseline, so many people are surprised because they had no idea that Disney did cruises! If you live in America it may be a different story, but in England nobody seems to know that it’s a thing. (And you should because the Disney Magic ports out…

  • The Wedding Singer UK Tour

    August 26, 2017

    The Wedding Singer soundtrack is one of my favourite musical soundtracks of all time. The songs are fab with an infectious 80’s vibe, the lyrics are hilarious and when you blast it loud it sounds epic. The finale never fails to give me chills. (Not to mention there’s so many great auditions songs for girls,…

  • How To Enjoy The Last Weekend of Summer

    August 23, 2017

    It’s the last weekend of the summer holidays for most people – aka, school kids, parents, teachers… (Although did summer ever actually arrive this year? Old, grumpy sun worshipper, me.)

  • I’m ‘Nuts’ About My Allergy

    August 22, 2017

    After watching clips last night from a recent ‘This Morning’ episode, I felt the need to write about it. In this episode they were interviewing a fellow colleague, Amy May and her parents, regarding the allergic reaction that nearly took her life, but instead left her brain damaged. They also had posted a poll to…

  • Friday Thoughts – Frivolity And Figuring Yourself Out

    August 11, 2017

    Sometimes we need to take a step back, take a breath, and realise just how lucky we are. It’s easy to wallow in self pity when something isn’t going your way, but after you’ve spent a couple of days milling it over, you should really be looking onwards and upwards. If there’s something you’re unhappy…

  • 10 Ways I Failed At Adulting This Week

    August 3, 2017

    I don’t think I’m ready for this adulting thing. To be honest, I doubt I will ever be equipped for it. I suck at it! I may be nearly 25 and have just moved into a flat by myself, but it feels like I’m kind-of just playing pretend for now; pretending I’ve got my life…

  • Please Don’t Let Me Be A ‘Non-Person’

    July 20, 2017

    A couple of years ago I said to myself: “At 24 years old, I’ll figure it all out. My career will finally start to make sense and it will be the best year of my life.” (Let’s all laugh together!) Well, I’m half way through the age of 24 now and I’m still waiting for…

    They say that there is no finer pass-time than drinking with friends… Well, I don’t know who actually says that, but I do think it is pretty good mantra! Some of my funnest social occasions have been when alcohol is involved – sorry you sticklers out there, I have more fun with alcohol! And Saturday…

    May 3, 2017

    In less than two weeks, I will be leaving the UK, for 8 months, to live and work in sandier pastures.
