Okay, if you're reading this in the first few hours of your uni / school / work / easter hollies then you're probably still way too optimistic, imagining that you'll spend the next however-long doing things like hiking, and working on your skincare routine, and being a functioning member of society. While you're wasting time with… Continue reading A Seriously Exhaustive Guide to Holiday Binge-Watching.
I have never once loved another human for anything more than I have loved them for being themselves. Think about that. Turn it over in your head, breathe in, breathe out, and listen to it. It's likely the same for you, too. We all think we are so flawed, and through these flaws we make… Continue reading Comparison is the Thief of Joy.
Before I get stuck into this post, I'd like to clarify that I am a very emotional person. I'm talking full blown sobbing at sad movies / happy TV shows / advertisements that tug on my heartstrings. I can't kill a spider or a fly because in the moment between spotting the critter and doing something about… Continue reading All your love (Or Near Offer)

My sweet boyfriend Patrick and I have been together for four years this June. We’ve managed to tick off a lot of coupley-type things in that time; living together, a quick jaunt overseas, a joint savings account, buying our first home, adopting our two pups, pretty consistent banter about who’s turn it is to put… Continue reading Please (please) stop asking when we’re getting engaged.
*By absolutely no means am I a professional stylist, what a ridiculous and misinformed claim. If I had a dollar for every time someone asked me where I got my dress / skirt / necklace / bag from and I replied with a gleeful grin and ‘EBay’, I would have an extra $5 this week… Continue reading How to clothes-shop on EBay like a professional stylist*.
