Settling Down: Is It Just Me Who Almost Fears This?

I think I am a bit of a commitment-phobe. I walk around arguing with both the world and my loved ones about how everyone else has someone, and I cannot seem to find anyone. At all. Ever. Except I can. I just don't think anyone has caught my fancy for long enough to want me … Continue reading Settling Down: Is It Just Me Who Almost Fears This?

Rejection: It’s Okay to Lose Sometimes

'Rejection sucks! With every no, or I'm not feeling this, or I don't want anything right now, I feel as though the problem is unambiguously me. Honestly, I’m rejected even when there are no real tell-tale signs that it is going badly. Either that or I am blinded to it. That could be it. Perhaps … Continue reading Rejection: It’s Okay to Lose Sometimes

When Your Stomach is Not Yet on Flat, Flat…

I think I have plateaued. Well I’ve definitely become rather lax in my diet choices and come to think of it, my exercise choices too. Wait for it… I’ve come quite far in the last two years – yes, my not so humble, humble brag of the week right there – but I think for … Continue reading When Your Stomach is Not Yet on Flat, Flat…

Modern Dating: How Does it Work and What to Expect?

I'm a believer in a fairy-tale. In the old-school love story. 1950s carnival. Guy sees the girl playing a game at a stall, he goes over and strikes up a conversation, and the rest is history. I once even read a story about an older couple, on Instagram. When asked how they met, the man … Continue reading Modern Dating: How Does it Work and What to Expect?

Looks or Personality: What Matters More?

So I like to think I'm Beyoncé. Perfect features, a figure to die for – even when pregnant with twins – and a personality and drive that run circles around just about every human on the planet; yet on a scale of relationship to single, I don't really associate myself with the former. In fact … Continue reading Looks or Personality: What Matters More?

Baby Got Back… But Should Specific Body Features, Be A Fashion Statement?

‘I like big butts and I cannot lie’, I know, that’s song is in your head now, isn’t it?! #sorrynotsorry. I do like big butts. Not in the way that the song dictates, but due to the fact that society is fast embracing a woman with curves. Specifically, a woman with a bum. A societal … Continue reading Baby Got Back… But Should Specific Body Features, Be A Fashion Statement?

Love

Love. A word recognised the world over. Four little letters that bear the most weight of any word within the English language. One syllable that can change your life forever... It's a gift being loved and to love someone. A gift we often don't realise we have received until it's gone. Not only is it … Continue reading Love

The Circle: An Almost Crude Explanation of Our Societal Future

Last Saturday night was one I spent very much at home on the sofa. Having had a busy few weeks and an... eventful Friday night out with my sister and cousin, Saturday night was for staying in. Gladly so too. I took this rare opportunity not to catch up on the first episode of this … Continue reading The Circle: An Almost Crude Explanation of Our Societal Future

First Date Don’ts…

Have you ever been in a situation where you’ve been on a really amazing first date, but the person you were seeing never followed up for a second or even texted you back? So I’ve been in both situations, one where I was ghosted after the date, and also been the person to say that … Continue reading First Date Don’ts…
