Three Films


Unkategorised

I used to spend the majority of my pocket money on DVDs. Nothing thrilled me more than going to ASDA and buying a film I’ve wanted to purchase for forever before it finally was priced at £4. I still own every one of these films and could never ever imagine getting rid of the likes […]

An Ode to the Disorganised


Unkategorised

I’m an organisation freak. Alongside my ability to cross one eye while moving the other (Britain’s Got Talent, eat your heart out), I consider my organisation my most valuable skill. Although I don’t think my family who have to tolerate my sometimes frequent alarms do- I’m working on it, mum; I promise. Once upon a […]

Why Straight People Need to See Love, Simon


Unkategorised

As a straight person, it was hard to ignore the niggling thought in my head telling me there was something toxic in the floods of tears that attacked my face throughout seeing the film Love, Simon. I wiped away yet another tear as the credits rolled and I turned to my boyfriend. “Did you like it?” He […]

The Man Sat on the Bus


Unkategorised

To The Man Sat on the Bus, Well. The Man Stood by the Bus Stop. Who was to become The Man Sat on the Bus. If you like real stories because those are the unbelievable ones, then you should know your timing was just that. Unbelievable. As I stared at the bus timetable, blurry eyed […]

An Ode to Freelance Writers


Unkategorised

When I’m not waitressing or selling kitchenware, you’ll find me freelance writing next to a cup of tea and a burning candle. Yup, it’s as brilliant as it sounds. Freelance writing is, however, a funny sphere when you’ve not navigated it before, nor been given too much advice about it. I’ve been writing for a […]

Surely Time’s Up?


Unkategorised

Of course we need to be celebrating women all day every day, but there’s nothing like International Women’s Day to help a feminist smile as soon as their alarm goes off. (Well, after snoozing it three times and finishing their second cup of tea of the day.) It’s on days like these when we see […]

Three Products for the Sleep Deprived


Unkategorised

For the last half a year I’ve spent my nights sleep-working. Let me explain. For reasons unknown to me, about four times a week, after I get in from work, I go to sleep and find myself in a weird sleepy trance whereby I am “working” in my bedroom. I have previously “pulled pints,” “set […]

The Orange Jumper Edit


Unkategorised

Back in university─when I ate spaghetti and sausages from a tin, purchased Lidl’s version of Malibu and ate packed lunches while friends bought food from the uni cafe─I shopped until my bank balance had no more room left to drop. Despite being sensible in the food and drink department, I was not a girl that […]

Leonard and Eleanor


Unkategorised

Leonard Darcy’s dating life begun at just eleven years old. It was yet another Valentine’s Day and Leonard wasn’t planning on ending this fourteenth of February without a girlfriend; or at least without an attempt at getting one. For a week or so, by this point, he’d noticed a funny feeling in his stomach when […]

The Hamilton Review


Unkategorised

Over a year ago now, I listened to the Hamilton soundtrack and then I listened to it again. And so begun a love affair that lead me to naming Hamilton my favourite musical (and I love musicals) before I’d even got tickets to see it. Then, not too long ago, I received a message from my brother […]
