Pinterested?

Last night I fell down a Pinterest rabbit hole and didn’t claw my way out until gone 1am. I found myself ‘pinning’ for my life – movie typography, film posters, Barbra Streisand when she was young – there’s now a board for most topics. I feel completely frazzled. Pinterest isn’t a new thing. In fact, it’s pretty much everywhere. I’ve signed up a few … Read More Pinterested?

FOMO Oh No

I’m anti-social. Honestly, if I were left to my own devices I’d be a full-time hermit living on Cloud 9, never going out and having all my meals and necessities delivered to my door. Unfortunately, I also have severe FOMO and I like my friends so cannot live out my natural anti-social tendencies to their fullest. I go out with people a lot and … Read More FOMO Oh No

Girl, Bye.

You know what true power is? Cutting things out of your life that hurt or anger you. No argument, no “Fuck you”, just a “Girl, bye” under your breath and you’re off. I’m currently angry and bewildered by a particular incident that happened on that wonderful barometer of how shit people can be: the internet. Specifically, Facebook. Someone I know recently posted a status … Read More Girl, Bye.

Get Me Bodied

Last night I fell into bed at the usual time utterly exhausted. Had I climbed a mountain, or run 10k? Nope, just the usual: spent more than a ‘healthy’ amount of time on Twitter. I can’t blame my favourite social media app for all these feelings of inertia but a conversation started on there that began to melt my brain, and then got me thinking … Read More Get Me Bodied

The Ex Factor

This headline popped up in my inbox this morning: “Facebook begins testing tools to let people manage interactions with exes” and, to paraphrase Miss Carrie Bradshaw, it got me to thinking. Obviously, before I pour vitriol all over this post, I have to say that I understand this is meant to be a good thing. Apparently it will allow people to hide each other … Read More The Ex Factor

Quit You

It’s become a thing in our household to quit something we love on New Year’s Eve and stick to it for the duration of the coming year. I’m not sure why, but 2015 was my first year in the ‘game’ and I gave up chocolate, just for shits n’ gigs. My lovely husband spent 2014 saying no to pork products, and this year is … Read More Quit You

The Voice

It’s been all go this weekend with family visits, free comedy, eating everything in sight and going to see the new Mad Max (look, my view of busy versus yours may be very different, okay?). It will also be all go this coming weekend with a family wedding and some time away from home at my mother’s. I want some time to sit down and … Read More The Voice

Who Run The World?

Just a quick meme from me today, with a longer post on this topic later in the week. This, reposted from @huffpostwomen on Instagram, is just perfect and a very good reminder that there’s enough room in the world for us all. Sure, sometimes we might need to check ourselves, but as women we should be there to big each other up, encourage and … Read More Who Run The World?

My Weekend in Pictures – March 15

Or rather, my Sunday in pictures. Saturday wasn’t the most photogenic of days, let’s put it that way! Unless you’re interested in the sight of me with a top knot, scrubbing the loo. A couple of #selfies in there for you as well as some kick ass graffiti and the interior of a great new coffee shop. I’ve a bit of a headache so … Read More My Weekend in Pictures – March 15

New Blogs*: A Round-up of What I’m Reading Right Now – Part 2

It’s been ages since I did one of these shout out posts but I have been reading some really good blogs lately that are definitely worth a mention. I hate sharing food and sometimes my time, but I’m kind when it comes to spreading the blog love. I know, I’m just so giving. Hope you enjoy! Camelia Ophelia – My beautiful and highly talented … Read More New Blogs*: A Round-up of What I’m Reading Right Now – Part 2

Home

I’ve been inspired by Hayley Margaret of A Stitch to Scratch to take on Photography 101, starting today. Poetry 201 was fun to begin with but I couldn’t keep up and felt a bit silly in the end. I think my future career as a beatnik poet is now firmly on hold. Sorry, world. Photography 101 looks like lots of fun though and having seen … Read More Home

My Week in Pictures – February 19 to 26

Last time I posted my Week in Pictures, I waxed lyrical about going through a period of hibernation. Not much has changed. It’s not something that worries me. I feel as though I have arrived at a great stage in my life where I don’t have to bend to pressure from other people and if I want to be the homebody I really am, I … Read More My Week in Pictures – February 19 to 26
