The 8 ‘Life Things’ I’m Most Excited About (Without Wishing My Life Away)

Yay for blog post ideas that cross your mind at the most random of times, right?  This one popped into my head in the shower.  We all do our best thinks in there.  I can’t remember what my exact train of thought was as I shaved my legs but for some reason I was wondering what I’m most excited for about life.  Obviously there’s lots of day to day things to get excited about, but I’m the kind of person…

When The Creativity Gotta Come Out

Here returneth the ‘typed up post that I scribbled in a notebook on a train’ thing that I’m rather fond of. This time scribbled in a notebook balanced on a bag that the zip went bust on because I couldn’t get the bloody thing open again.  So that was fun.  I kept alternating between staring out the smudgy window, watching the city and then the countryside and then a load of hedge go by, and observing the people around me. …

Thou Shalt Take No Sh*t

HI.  All going well this should go up sometime whilst I’m dressed up to the nines at the #GoGlamGala blogger event tonight, hopefully without having tripped on my dress / smudged lipstick across my face / spilled a drink down myself.  That’s the plan anyway.  Bag is packed for my trip down to London with Tasmin later and I’m 92% certain I haven’t one singular shoe or something like that.  Let’s hope. Following my post last week about what we…

I Don’t Believe In…

First things first – I absolutely don’t mean to offend or alienate anyone with this one, so apologies in advance if I unintentionally do.  I figured if it’s OK for people to share the concepts they do believe in, then it’s OK for me to share why I don’t.  Just hear me out on this.  Might make some interesting discussion anyway. 🙂 You may now have the impression from this bullet point list that I’m a cold hearted cynical cow…

Being Nineteen In 2016 | Social Media, Being Taken Seriously and The ‘No Chill’ Thing

That’s a pretty specific title, I hear you say.  And that’s exactly my point.  During the past few days of taking it easy over Christmas (read: making a bum imprint on the sofa whilst binge watching Harry Potter and eating chocolate coins) I’ve been doing less and thinking more, and the idea crossed my mind. Being 19 in 2016 is very different to being 19 in 2006.  This world is a changing v v fast!  It’s crazy how much of…

A Train of Thought (Literally) | Life Lately

Long time no chitchat post!  I started scribbling notes for a catchup post yesterday, whilst on a train, looking out the window, with slightly dramatic music in my headphones in and feeling a *bit* like I was in a cheap movie scene or something.  One where the train was ram-jam-packed with fools with the same idea to go shopping on a Friday afternoon before Christmas, which doesn’t exactly sound like the best plot.  And I was ‘that person’ who sat…

The Things I’m Not Allowed To Say

Right now, I’m sat on an armchair on a Sunday morning in my pyjamas and feel like I want to thrash out something really personal. My fingers are hovering over the keyboard and twitching in that weird way like I want to type something really fast and furiously, you know? Or maybe that’s just me lol.  To be honest I don’t even know exactly what I’d like to say – I just know that I want to write something meaty-ish. …
