Twenty-two | A Story About Kath (not Kat)


Unkategorised

She straightened her curly-but-not-that-curly hair and blackened the lids and lashes that hugged her blue-but-not-that-blue eyes. She sipped on yellow fizz and scented her neck. She cringed at her pink cheeks and noted that she should later wish away the seemingly always present pigment upon making her eighteenth birthday wish. This particular ninth day of […]

Dear Stomach: Five Tips


Unkategorised

Dear Stomach, You and I don’t always get along too well. Even when I think I understand you better than anyone else, I’ll get on a train and you’ll complain all the way there. Or I’ll wake up to make myself some eggs and you’ll, pretty soon, tell me off. We have a love-hate relationship […]

The Mustard Yellow Edit


Unkategorised

Ever since I was a little girl, watching Winnie-the-Pooh with childishly happy eyes, I have adored the colour yellow. It was always my favourite colour. Even though I decided blue was for a little while (I really was, as my brother protested, simply copying Jordan’s favourite colour), and a little later green took its place, […]

Five Feasible Resolutions


Unkategorised

It’s the first of January and, after brunch and a pint of water, the muggy feeling has almost lifted and I’m very motivated about this brand new year. New Year inspires segregation; it creates a few categories of like-minded first of January people. Some hate that fresh start feeling; others see through the hangover and […]

The Mrs Claus Hat Edit


Unkategorised

Dear December Fourteenth, I have a new favourite hat. Well, December, I say “new.” I’ve never been a fan of hats; they sit weirdly on my head. I’ll happily sport a Santa’s hat throughout your month but I’ve never found a “normal” hat that I like. Until a couple of weeks ago. My boyfriend gifted […]

12 Christmas Memories


Unkategorised

Dear December Twelfth, I have always adored your month. When you take centre stage a warmth can be felt at all times. Despite the cars that can’t see in the early hours of the morning. Despite the magic we breathe out as we wander outside for the first time each day. Despite the “brrr” that […]

DIY Christmas Memory Line

Dear December Eleventh, In a day’s time most of us will be celebrating your main event in the form of Christmas trees, festive front of house displays and a wreath on the door. Our tree, traditionally, goes up on the twelfth- or as close as to the twelfth as possible. As I’m sure you’ve already […]

How to Gift a Disposable Camera


Unkategorised

Dear December Eighth, I visited New York during your older sibling’s month; this November gone. But that’s not really what I want to write to you about today. Before Tarryn and I left for our Big Apple adventure, I gifted her with a disposable camera for her birthday. Attached was a mini card with twenty-two […]

The Green Trouser Edit


Unkategorised

Dear December Third, You give us thirty-one days of red, gold and green. We see these colours sewn into even the most intricate details of your month. I enjoy other takes on Christmas colours; Christmas trees with silver and purple and, well, whatever the Christmas Tree Elf fancies. My brother and I decorate our tree, […]

My Pumpkin and Me: Ten Tips


Unkategorised

The start of my afternoon off on Thursday began optimistically. Aaron and I headed to Tesco and I felt rather festive. It took everything in me not to purchase every packet of trick or treat sweetie bags but instead focus on my pumpkin-picking. I am only a recent lover of Halloween; having begun to really […]
