Mama’s Got a Brand New Bag

Did I ever tell you about my handbag theory? Ever since I started earning my own money aged 13, I’ve been into arm candy. Handbags are my THING – my porn. There is nothing sexier than a beautiful vintage handbag dangling on the arm of a gorgeous person. Sex and the City was all about… Read More

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… Read More

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,… Read More

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… Read More

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… Read More

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.… Read More
