    Rant Of The Week: Country Girl, City Heart

    On a Sunday afternoon in February, after many cups of tea and the urge to bang her head off the desk repeatedly, a very normal, very frustrated girl was hit with a strong case of writer’s block. That girl was me, and I would like to dedicate this post to my friend Joseph who put up with my whining about writer’s block before throwing a load of great ideas at me when I was all out (seriously, I’m sorted for weeks now!) The Fox Files biggest fan apart from my Nan, just saying… Anyway, I finally have some inspiration back and am ready to write, so here goes! Picture a…

    Rant Of The Week: Braving The Storm

    There comes a time in every girls life where we are faced with a decision – we can either walk on eggshells, or we can strut on them in high heels. It can be very tempting to stay at home in your pyjamas eating a pot noodle, watching Keeping Up With The Kardashians and avoiding a situation that you don’t particularly want to face, or you can be strong, shave your legs, put on tan, lift your head up high and strut into the room like Sandy at the end of Grease. Some girls (maybe the wiser ones) choose to skip events that may make them feel socially awkward, but…

    To My Beloved Nan

    Looking back over the years, I remember many things – laughter, cuddles, the many goodbyes. What I never realised at the time was that these were in fact not real goodbyes after all. Leaving Nanny Josie was always a sad occasion. She lived in England, and we moved to Ireland when my parents hearts were young, free and fearless, and of course accompanied by a car boot full of suitcases, belongings, and the echoes of three young voices in the back seat asking ‘Are we there yet?’ A ferry journey always seemed to bring us so far away from what we knew, but we could always come back. It now…

    5 Kisses Every Girl Is Familiar With

    All girls will have a different amount of kisses in their lifetime. In our minds they range from the first ‘Oh my god, what way do I turn my head?’ to ‘Can you just be the only person to kiss me forever please?’ And in between all of that there are the drunken ones, the regretted ones, and the special ones. Okay, well, actually, I’m no expert. My list of past crushes and kisses are totally different lengths. I’ve kissed princes that turned out to be frogs, and I’m sure frogs often turn out to be princes. Here is my list of 5 kisses every girl is familiar with! 1.…

    Rant Of The Week: All The Single Ladies, All The Single Ladies

    I have decided to rant about something very close to my heart at the moment – falling in love with fictional characters. I have decided to use this as a topic because I have still not come back to reality since my idol liked one of my photos on social media. This woman was Sarah Jessica Parker, or Sex and the City’s Carrie Bradshaw. She is New York City’s ultimate single gal, relatable writer, and the first and probably only woman to manage to marry Mr emotionally unavailable.Yes, like I said before, this is fiction. The reason she noticed my photo was because I tagged her in my outfit picture.…
