I might not have made it clear enough on this blog: I live for the movies. All movies really but mainly horror. Good horror, bad horror, cheap horror – most of it has a place in this old heart of mine. My absolute favourites of all time include Candyman and Hellraiser – with a whole lot of variety in between – and what better … Read More Horror F(r)iends
I haven’t really planned much for Autumn apart from my trip, which in itself is a pretty cool thing to cross off the bucket list. I’ve always wanted to visit Copenhagen, so I guess I’ll start there. These are the things I’ll be doing this Autumn, in no particular order. Copenhagen Tora and I have been friends for years, ever since I got back … Read More Autumn Bucket List
I’ve had an epiphany. Last night I was talking to my new cool work friend Chloe about her beautiful Instagram feed (how modern!) and I asked her how the background in all her photographs is always so appealing. Like my background always has gerbils and shoes and old cups of tea lying around – how does one create the perfect pure light and airy … Read More Minimalism?
I’m not a big fan of Valentine’s Day. I may have mentioned it before. In fact, I’ve spent a fair amount of this week whinging about how much I hate the commercialism, the pressure and the girl in the street who can’t even carry the huge bunch of red roses her boyfriend got her. Evidence yet again that I’ve let Valentine’s get to me … Read More Smalentine’s Day
This edition of My Week in Pictures is sponsored by cake, and dedicated to one of my favourite people on the planet, Tatty of tattyfrankland.com who celebrates her 21st birthday on Sunday. On Wednesday we celebrated her (fake) birthday in style with cake, crown and candles, before she jetted off to Sri Lanka yesterday. I am beside myself with jealousy and have been pining quietly … Read More My Week in Pictures – March 17 to 20
Prompt via The Daily Post (25th July 2014) Do you — or did you ever — have a Best Friend? Do you believe in the idea of one person whose friendship matters the most? Tell us a story about your BFF (or lack thereof). This is almost a little too close to home as a topic but fuck it, I say. Why not tackle … Read More On Bees and Efs
I baked a cake this weekend. I was going to wax lyrical for a while about how inept I am in the kitchen but examining the evidence, I’m not sure that is the case. Based on cooking Christmas dinner last year for five people (successfully) and now this cake, I would have to describe myself as a perfectly adequate chef. However, unlike my talented … Read More The Reluctant Baker
This week, frankly, has been a little bitch. However, amid the crumminess there are always little nuggets of sheer happiness and that’s something that a bad week cannot take away. I’m celebrating the weekend by staying in with a head cold and mainlining Parks & Recreation, which is so much fun when there’s an apparent heat wave shimmying around outside. But meh. My week … Read More Vintage Dresses, Hula Hoops and the Local Cemetery
