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 […]

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 […]
