    How Much Screen Time Is Too Much?

    I can’t decide whether I love or hate the new iPhone feature that tells me exactly how much time I’m ‘wasting’ on my phone. It knows me too well. It observes my habits and aggressively lets me know that I spend half my life on my device, without me even…

    Finding Comfort In A Rented Space

    Finding Comfort In A Rented Space

    As I take my final glimpses of our beloved Christmas tree, I can’t help but smile at the home that my boyfriend and I have created. Although we live in a rented two bed terrace, it truly feels like home. I don’t know whether it’s the recent festivities or the…

    Unspoken Thanks: An Open Letter To My Mum

    Unspoken Thanks: An Open Letter To My Mum

    In our lives, there are a lot of unspoken thanks. They’re the ‘thank yous’ that we don’t think to say. We take some things in relationships as a given. After our massive family shake up this year, I’ve started to reflect on my life a little bit. Part of this…

    Why I Don’t Follow A Schedule Anymore

    Why I Don’t Follow A Schedule Anymore

    For as long as I can remember, I have followed a schedule. At school I had a battered planner and I even had a personal one for my social life. My schedule was what kept me together. It organised all of my tasks and kept me in check. My planner…

    The Life Of An Anxious Extrovert

    The Life Of An Anxious Extrovert

    My personality is full of contradictions. I am: an extrovert but, I am also anxiety. By definition I am an outgoing, expressive person. I am a socialiser. I am the ‘life of a party’. To be honest – yes, I love to socialise. I don’t enjoy my own space and…

    My Resting Bitch Face

    My Resting Bitch Face

    My resting bitch face is basically my face. When I am resting, I look like a bitch. I’d say it’s a pretty fair analysis too. I’m 20% tired, 15% content with my resting, 30% deep thinking, 35% not thinking about what my face looks like to you. My resting bitch…

    Maintaining Friendships

    Maintaining Friendships

    Ah, friendships. They have never been a breeze. Some friends are in your life for a long time and others are just taking part-time or temporary roles. At least with the part-time or temporary mates they sort of fizzle out. But, with the long-term friendships – you’ll do anything you…

    My Love/Hate Relationship With Fashion

    My Love/Hate Relationship With Fashion

    It has to be said, ultimately I still love fashion. I wouldn’t have made a blog called ‘I Blog The Fashion’ if I hated it – that would be personal torture. But, as I have grown older, I seem to have developed a minor dislike towards the nature of fashion.…

    The Future

    The Future

    The future used to scare the s**t out of me. (And yeah, I feel like I need to censor swearwords even though I am the most explicit person you’ll ever meet in real life.) The future is anything you want it to be in theory. If you work hard, you get…

    Living In The Offended Generation

    Living In The Offended Generation

        This has been on my mind for a long time. I am writing as a form of expression. However, after writing, ‘Why I Avoid Voicing My Opinions Online’, I am still very wary to truly express myself. I’m concerned that if I voice something, I may have my…
