    Still Here, Still Single

    I haven’t written a post like this in a while, mainly because my love life seemed to be pretty on track. However, as I am currently on my annual male detox (should be lasting until about next Tuesday) I thought that now would be a pretty good time to drop a blog post. I won’t go into too many deets about the sudden crumbling of my latest situation, but let’s just say it ended with few words on his part, and not enough wine-fuelled texts on mine. I had to wait for some time to pass before writing this one because I finally thought I was onto a good thing…

    The Soulmate Search

    Watching Sex and the City while eating endless slices of toast only ever ends one way: Making me question everything. While the ladies dined and pondered over soulmates, I began to ponder the same topic. Do soulmates really exist? I think so. Sure, sometimes when you’re drowning in pink gin it can be hard to distinguish between the prince charming’s and the not-so-charming but I firmly believe that there is at least one perfect person for everyone. Maybe we have a few soulmates incase one gets lost along the way, or maybe they all get lost, who knows. I do believe we’re all destined to meet these people at different…

    Hey Cupid, Any Spare Arrows?

    Now I am not going to sit here and decide whether I hate Valentine’s Day or the entire male species more, because, in fact, I hate neither. Yes, I am single, but I’m not going to get as bitter as a lemon because trust me if Zac Efron turned up on my doorstep tomorrow with a bunch of flowers and a share box of chicken nuggets, you would all know about it. In fact, I’d still be posting the pics in July 2024. So, if you’re loved up on February 14th, good for you. Hold on to that man tight because it’s a cruel world out there. I’m not gonna…

    10 Things I Find Scarier Than Halloween

    1) My bank balance – Ah, when you think you have notes to throw at peasants but in fact you are the proud owner of €4.52. 2) The alarming rate my jeans shrink at when I spend that €4.52 on sausage rolls.  3) “Opened 2 minutes ago” It’s gone past the minute mark, there is no way he is going to reply now. No matter how good the lighting was, how much makeup you have on or if your cleavage was pushed up to your eyeballs, it’s time to inform the bridesmaids and cancel the wedding. No looking back. 4) Seeing my ex on a night out after I’ve had…

    My 24 Hours Without The Kettle

    I woke up at 8:25am on a much anticipated Monday morning. I stayed in bed listening to the start of the howling wind until the words “Feeeee, tea!” made my body get up and hurry down the stairs, similarly to a child on Christmas morning. I sipped away like I would any other day and stared out of the window at the darkening skies and swaying trees. As I took my final sip, and this was actually final, unlike many others I always finish every bit of my cup of tea, even the last drop. So, as I took this final sip I placed the mug on the tea-stained coffee…

    Me, You and a Ghost or Two

    There are too many negative dating terms lately. I’ve been benched, breadcrumbed, cushioned, ghosted and bloody french toasted more times than I can count at this stage. Ok, so I don’t think french toasted is an actual dating trend term but I’m sure it will be eventually. You heard it here first, folks. Funnily enough, anytime I read about the latest dating trend it seems it is happening to me at this exact moment. Whether he is sending the odd sexual suggestion every few weeks or cancelling every date we plan, when rain begins to fall on blossoming relationships in 2017 you can guarantee that Fenella Fox has been hit…

    Am I Going Crazy?

    There is something surprisingly comforting about the moment when you hear girls talk about the lads in their life who have referred to them as “psycho.” As a female, you can often feel like you’re in it alone when you’re storming around your room and blaring Dua Lipa New Rules. Sometimes things can build up to the point where you can actually feel yourself gradually going insane. You want nothing more than to text a load of boys who couldn’t give a crap about you while you mentally attack the master of mind games in your life with a shoe. Yes, there is something comforting about the desire to fall…

    The General Snap and An Eyelash Attack

    I’M BACK! You’re probably all wondering where I’ve been recently, right? Well, unless it’s only my mum reading this, and if that’s the case then sorry to break it to you mum but I haven’t been in the kitchen packing the dishwasher so please stop getting your hopes up. Since my last post in July I have been over to the Czech Republic, to my first festival and recovering from several absolutely horrendous doses of the fear… again…  No, but honestly, these ones were bad. Example number one – I think one of my SOSU eyelashes is in some random fellas bed and I am waiting for him to be…

    My Early Midlife Crisis

    It has been over a week since I made the absolutely insane decision of getting some random man to shove a needle through my nipple. I was hungover, extremely hungover. As my whole body was not functioning properly I decided it would be the perfect time to finally get that nipple piercing I have wanted since last year. Although I have to say, I did judge this perfectly and the pain didn’t hit me fully because I had already been through the wars the night before and all I could think was “Just take me and my nipple too…” I then came home to a list of people who asked…

    How To Break Up Your Bestie And Her Boyf

    Okay, I don’t actually have the answers or a way to break up your bestie and her boyf because a true friend shouldn’t want to do that unless she’s dating the lad off the Go Compare advert… but thanks for clicking anyway and please keep reading below because my own self pity just isn’t enough… We’ve all been there, smiling along and trying to be happy for our friends who are happily in relationships or slowly but surely getting to that stage with a delightful man. Of course we all want the best for our girls but lets be honest, you know, I know and they know a small part…
