    Boys Will Be Boys?

    It’s Saturday night. I’m 17. I’m heading to a party for the first time. My dad tells me to be careful who I’m talking to, not to go wandering off on my own, to always keep my finger over my bottle of drink and to ring him straight away if I have any problems. Yeah yeah, Dad, whatever! As if anything is going to happen. Of course I’m more concerned about the excitement of my new outfit, getting all dressed up and seeing my friends. I just can’t wait to grow up!It’s Saturday night. I’m 18. I’m feeling invincible because I made it through the nightclub doors with my own…

    Christmas 2016 – A Lot Of Single And A Lot Of Pringles!

    For 11 months of the year, being single is kind of alright. I mean thankfully during the summer there’s no idiot trying to chuck you into the water when you go to the beach. Seriously mate, watch my hair. You don’t have to think of a creative couples Halloween costume OR share your Easter eggs with anyone while watching a movie. And while these 11 months are all well and good, I usually spend them looking forward to the 12th month of the year until it comes around and hits me as hard as Santa coming down the chimney. After many failed attempts at finding the man of my dreams…

    The Making And Breaking Of A Heart

    No matter the levels of bitterness, the amount of grudges that are being held and the complete regret about some of the things you did leading up to this point… at some point in every woman’s life someone else will have the power to split her heart in half, leaving it frail and empty for a very long time. I’m not writing this because I’ve recently experienced heartbreak, I haven’t. Thankfully, it’s been quite some time since I’ve stared at my bedroom ceiling overthinking every moment up to this point and then filling my weekends with too many shots, rash decisions, drunken texts and the inevitable Sunday morning fear. The…

    The Things Disney Never Prepared Us For

    Most of us grew up watching and waiting for that perfect man, a pair of glass slippers, some talking animals and fairy godmothers to give us guidance. Yep, I’m still waiting. However, it is clear to me now at 20 years of age that there are many things Disney did not prepare us for.. 1. You can’t change the beastSure, you can try, but so far I’ve met plenty of Gastons and plenty of Beasts who could use a little editing. Why don’t you text back? Why are you so mean? Why do you go so weird for three weeks straight then appear again? This resulted in f***boy failure and…

    Donald, Could I Have A Word With You?

    Dear Mr Trump, You don’t know me personally, thank god. In fact, I don’t even live in America, nor have I ever been there. And to be honest, by the sounds of things, with you in power, I doubt I’ll get to visit anytime in the next four years. Given the figures in your bank account, it is no surprise that you want to make your opinion seem gold plated. You see no wrong in what you are saying, probably because it isn’t directly affecting you or your own lavish lifestyle. However, unlike your numerous buildings and apartments, there is nothing truly gold about your views. As a young woman…

    Winter Is Coming

    I won’t dare say the C word just yet because I bet some of you aren’t ready for it. However, when Halloween is over and I’m a Celeb starts again be prepared for my excitement in the run up to Christmas (sorry) because whether you like it or not people, WINTER IS COMING. As the weather is becoming increasingly bloody freezing and the roof was nearly blown off my house last night I have decided to put together a winter wardrobe post! There are a few items that are always a must on my winter wardrobe list – A faux fur coat, a polo neck and a pair of thigh…

    Fighting Through The Rainy Days

    In life, they say certain things will either make us or break us. However, I don’t think this is necessarily true. I think we can choose whether things will be the making of us or the breaking of us. Unfortunately, facing challenges is part and parcel of growing up, and don’t get me wrong – that can be crap. Some people are lucky and only have to face minor mounds that are quickly forgotten about. However, others, for some reason which I do not know, have to climb mountain after mountain, battling bears and walking through fire. The important thing to remember is no matter the strength of the bears…

    A Generation Of Lonely Hearts

    Growing up, I was always a dreamer. When I played with Barbies, she would always have her Ken. Playing games with my sister I always had an imaginary boyfriend called Brad. After watching all the Disney classics one too many times I thought about the day my own Prince Charming would turn up – How old would I be? Where will we meet? What will he look like?This dreamer is now approaching 21 years of age. 21 – probably the number of times us girls have had our heartbroken by the same person over and over. 21 – the number of times we are probably yet to be ‘almost’ in…

    Let’s Talk About Blogging: My Journey With The Fox Files!

    As I often have people messaging me asking for advice about how to start blogging, I decided to put a post together about a few of the things I have learned on my blogging journey so far. I tend to find that a common worry people have when wanting to start a blog is both a lack of confidence and no idea where to start. This is completely normal and you’re not alone, so I hope this post helps you if you had wanted to start a blog. I first started blogging when I was still in school. I have always loved writing (I was that girl who loved getting…
