One for the small town kids.

This is an ode to the boys and girls that came from the middle of nowhere, and found themselves as small fish in a big town sea. You might have spent your toddlerhood on a station, kindergarten in the bush, (in my case) the first eight years of your life in a tiny seaside town…

The Chloe Jane Netflix weekend binge guide.

For some of us, it’s the last weekend of holidays; and the realisation has just dawned that we have packed the past two weeks with productive, worthwhile activities- meaning that we are running n fumes in terms of how much pop culture / lame but excellent movies / cult tv sows we have consumed. For…

How to turn a crap day into a slightly less crap day*

*DISCLAIMER: these tips may or may not work. My grumps are telling me that they deffo won’t but the niggling little angel on my shoulder is telling me they do, every time, and to tell my grumps to shove off and do some of them. Today has been a shit day. Alright, honestly I’ve written one…

How to be alone at uni without being lonely.

As a seasoned life do-er and apparently mature aged student, university is a very different experience for me than it is for most of my classmates; a tribe of young and fresh faced humans who have graduated in the last year or so.

2015 in review x 

Your Facebook feed is undoubtedly full of posts about the year that has been, the year that will be and all of life’s trials and triumphs today, so it seems almost fitting that I add to the chorus. 2015 has been the wildest, hardest, most wonderful year of my life thus far. It has been…

“wherever you are, be all there.”

*or, the reason that I am so bad at replying to “hey how are you” messages on facebook and why I am okay with that. At the time of writing (23rd December 2015, 4:11PM) it is a Wednesday afternoon and I have been told six times this week that I am juggling too much, that…

“she let me wear my chain and my turtleneck sweater.”

Until a few months ago, high-necked jumpers as a wardrobe staple were reserved for afro’d white guys and your great-aunt Doris. In a blink-and-you’ll-miss it moment, they’ve climbed the must have ladder to perch with ripped denim, strappy heels and fine rose-gold jewellery. I, for one, am totally kicking myself for not cleaning out my…

The best places to eat you’ll (n)ever hear of.

Originally posted on the Adelady blog x If you’re anything like me, then you believe that the only thing that makes great food taste even better is the knowledge that it’s from a hole-in-the-wall location that is run on pure passion. You know what I’m talking about- it’s always fun (and consistent!) eating at a…

hello, gorgeous.

So, I’m blogging. I’m not sure right now if I have enough to say to run a blog (haha, who am I kidding?!), I hope you get a kick out of my ramblings, and maybe even take away a little bit of my wisdom/methods to my madness with you. My name is Chloe Jane (Grayling-Steele), most often known…
