Scrolling through social media recently (and there’s been a lot of scrolling) I’ve been feeling the pressure to be productive. To churn out more work than ever now I'm having to stay home all day. I want to make this lockdown count. However, it isn’t that easy, is it? On day two of official lockdown … Continue reading Productivity On Lockdown
Lost Twenty-Something on Lockdown sounds like a pretty shit movie, huh? Yet somehow this has become our actual lives. I’m finding real life so unbelievably surreal. Perhaps it’s because I write fairly apocalyptic fiction—I have not set myself up to be in the best frame of mind about all this! I listen for something from … Continue reading Lost Twenty-Something on Lockdown
It’s that time of year again. The time where everything is obnoxiously pink and people think snogging while others are eating their damn dinner is fine. I’m perpetually single (big surprise!) and one of the things I get annoyed with is the ‘what a waste’ comment. As if me not falling in love with a … Continue reading Let’s Talk About Love: Valentine’s And The Greeks

Admittedly, moving to Edinburgh on the week of my period was a bad idea. I felt way more emotions than I otherwise would. I cried on my dog the evening before I left (he didn’t care at all—just sighed and tried to move away). However, despite still feeling emotionally fragile, and after four stages of … Continue reading I Moved to Edinburgh!
After spending the best part of two days searching for a foundation not packaged in plastic, that would still function as a foundation, I’ve become once again frustrated by how expensive everything ‘sustainable’ is. Especially as a lot of the time eco products are still packaged in plastic no matter how many times their companies … Continue reading The Issue with Sustainability as a Middle-Class Fashion Trend
When I published my post about money last week [you can check it out here if you haven’t already] I expected backlash. In my overactive imagination companies far and wide would somehow get my number to inform me I was on every blacklist in the land. Angry mobs of rich people would turn up with gold … Continue reading An Overdue Discussion About Being a Working-Class Millennial
