7 Podcasts you Need to listen to Now!

I worked out recently that I spend, on average, 20 hours per week in my car on my own, travelling to and from work.

Each of those roles pull me in 8 different directions and, honestly, I struggle to keep up with any of them. A week in the life …

Disney, Friendship, Soho on a Saturday night?

We all get tagged in a post on Facebook by a friend. Sometimes once a week, sometimes once an hour. A few of the posts we’re tagged in give a minor chuckle. Most are meh. In December, my friend Emily tagged me in a post. She’s one of my closest friends and also one of the funniest people I know so …

The One! 9 Reasons Not to Give Up

Growing up, I had all the same misconceptions that I think most girls do. The One would come along nice and easy. I assumed I would date boys in high school, go to university, meet the love of my life in my last year, we would get awesome jobs, and end up married with dogs and kids in the suburbs …

In honour of World Book Day, I’m reviewing a book just for grown ups, “Domina” by L.S. Hilton. Judith is an art-dealing, mysterious feminist symbol who knows how to play men.

Molten Magic? The Silver Lining

I’ve just rediscovered my love of nail varnish. They’re such a simple, cheap and easy way to add some colour into your life. And without actually putting in too much effort. Once upon a time, the perfect manicure would cost a fortune and take an age. Now, nail varnishes are almost foolproof, available in almost every shop and almost always …

Chantara Junk Boat

We managed to get in a few trips on the holiday and there’s two contenders for best trip. One is the Elephants World because, well, Elephants! The other was the Chantara Junk Boat trip. The trip costs around £50 which is pricey for Thailand but absolutely worth every penny. We were picked up from our hotel after breakfast and taken …

Thailand 2016… Bangkok is Mental

Continuing our trip, we decided to spend a few days in Bangkok before heading back to London. In retrospect, I don’t think I could ever spend more than a couple of days there. That city is insane. London is busy but Bangkok takes it to a next level. The heat and humidity is almost unbearable, too. Every time we went …
