A handful of articles I’ve enjoyed recently. In no particular order. The best podcasts by women to listen to in 2019 It’s no secret I bloody love a good podcast. There are a few on this list I’ve heard of and one I listen to on the regs, the others are untapped but already added to my must listen list. Guess I better take … Read More Weekly Digest: Five Articles (#3)

I’ll Be There For Jen

I’m currently working my way through Friends for the 77th time in my life and, while it has not aged well in its attitudes to certain things (toxic masculinity + slut-shaming + fat-shaming + Ross being a decent person) – I still love it. The most prolific thing I take from this current re-watch is that Rachel was so well-suited to Joey – and … Read More I’ll Be There For Jen

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?

Weekly Digest: Five Articles (#2)

A couple of articles I’ve enjoyed recently. What I Learned From Dating Someone Totally Wrong For Me I know what it’s like to be with the wrong person. I did it for 6 years, so this speaks to me on a deep level. Particularly this bit: The internal whisper that it was time to focus on my health and happiness became louder every time … Read More Weekly Digest: Five Articles (#2)

Other People’s Blogs

I’m a very bad blogger. I mean, I post regularly on my own blog which is fine but I’m bad at commenting and keeping up with other people’s blogs and I wish to change that. We’re a community after all and spreading the love is the right thing to do. Here are a few blogs I read as much as I can – some … Read More Other People’s Blogs

Horror Remakes I Can Get Behind

Remakes seldom live up to the originals, that’s always been a given. Obviously there are exceptions. Not everybody would agree with me but I would say Evil Dead (2013) is a good example of that. Not better that its 1982/1987 parents by any stretch but as good and with enough of its own individuality to make it feel fresh. I have high hopes for … Read More Horror Remakes I Can Get Behind

I’m Not Crying…

I love to cry. I find it the most cathartic exercise. I don’t think a day goes that I don’t have a little blub – for any number of reasons. Nostalgia, joy, a stubbed toe – all that and more can threaten my mascara on the daily and I’ve become notorious for wearing my emotion on my sleeve. Over the last few months it … Read More I’m Not Crying…

Weekly Digest: Five Articles

I thought I’d share a couple of articles I’ve been reading lately. Exploring the internet is one of the only things that gets me through my working day if I’m honest – that and my lovely work friends – and these are the ones that have caught my attention this week. Yes, Weekly Digest is back! How Tony Scott Gave ‘True Romance’ Its Happily … Read More Weekly Digest: Five Articles

Cool Breeze Over the Mountains: Keanu’s Year

Keanu was my first love. Honestly, when I first clapped eyes on his sultry good looks, he stirred something in me that wasn’t completely innocent or holy – he made me curious about the opposite sex. Parenthood was my jam in particular and when I think about it even now, I get a little tingle. I haven’t stopped loving him since and if we’re … Read More Cool Breeze Over the Mountains: Keanu’s Year

Wholesome Content*: Colouring Between the Lines

Sometimes the only thing I want to do is come straight home from work, make a cup of tea and sit on the sofa doing my colouring. This isn’t a euphemism for a heinous new sex act, I’m afraid. I actually mean colouring shit in. On my phone. For hours on end. Or rather, if I had my way it would be hours on … Read More Wholesome Content*: Colouring Between the Lines

Top Five: Podcasts

I’ve decided to start a new Top Five series to encapsulate a handful of things I like (and dislike) at a time. Also because I’m very lazy and this is a foolproof way to structure content without busting a nut. I’m a massive fan of the podcast medium as I’ve mentioned countless times before. I even produce and co-host my own (below). These are … Read More Top Five: Podcasts

Two Brilliant TV Shows

I’ve been so good at regularly posting here so I thought I’d keep up momentum and talk about a couple of things I’ve been watching lately. One sexy thriller with two feisty leads, one horribly unsettling interpretation of what could happen to the country if we’re not careful – and both currently available on the BBC iPlayer. *Minor spoilers* Killing Eve (2018-2019) After a … Read More Two Brilliant TV Shows
