10 Things Every 21 Year Old Woman Should Have Sorted

At what age do you consider yourself an adult? When you finish school? When you have a job? When you have a mortgage? When you’re 18, or 21? “Adults are only kids grown up, anyway.” - Walt Disney Nowadays, age is a relatively small indication of how mature and ‘grown up’ we are within the... Continue Reading →

Dear Diary

I had a diary. I say 'had', because nowadays I genuinely find myself too busy, and too preoccupied with my desire for sleep, that I simply cannot keep up with writing a mild essay at 11.30pm every night. That, coupled with the general realisation that my diary seemed to document my whining more than it... Continue Reading →

Sight But No Vision

The day I came home from my first Specsavers appointment, in complete denial about the fact I had to compromise my cool factor even further by admitting to my blindness, pair of mock-designer spectacles in hand, and placed them upon my nose, I looked outside - my, what a world I’d been missing. "The only... Continue Reading →

The Great British Bex Off

There are few things in life that get me really stressed. One of which is driving - I love the idea of it, sat behind a wheel and screaming round a race track, tyres burning and gears revving, but in the real world of roundabouts and parking fines I struggle to enjoy the everyday commute...

An Art in Overanalysing

We, as creatives, are taught at the start of our artistic career that we will find our best material and our unique edge, through the art of overanalysing. "No great artist ever sees things as they really are. If he did, he would cease to be an artist." - Oscar Wilde   This starts in GCSE... Continue Reading →

The Not-So-Honeymoon Period

Gosh, I forget how difficult relationships are. The internet tells you that finding the right person will be easy, that relationships should be perfect and hassle free, that you’ll feel The Spark and see the fireworks - if it’s with your soulmate. The pressure that this society creates means you’re likely to feel overwhelmed and... Continue Reading →

To The Infinite Beyond

“Once you’ve broken your boundaries, they’ll never restrain you again.” In the past 5 or so years of wafting around the internet, I have come across more than my fair share of inspirational quotes. Famous anecdotes from dead celebrities who are suddenly smothered across social media as icons of inspiration, or a half-arsed joke from... Continue Reading →

The Theatre of Life

Over the last couple of months, I've had the pleasure of enjoying an alternative commute to London - quiet trains at off peak times, travelling the opposite way to most city dwellers and heading into town to visit friends and loved ones almost every weekend. No work to rush for, no meetings to be planning;... Continue Reading →

An Ode to my Inner Shakespeare

Having stumbled across my A Level coursework folder, I discovered this award winning piece I created - an 1,000 word extract from my own Shakespeare style play, written in full iambic pentameter (ie, 10 syllables per line, in a soft-hard syllable pronunciation) with rhyming couplets and Shakespearian grammar. It received full marks and, although now... Continue Reading →

An Alternative Travel Blog

In true wannabe writer fashion, having spent the past three weeks living the perfect dream of travelling the sites and sounds of America, I have decided to write a blog that covers absolutely none of that. Although I saw all the fantastic and awe inspiring monuments that the United States can offer, starting in New... Continue Reading →

The Life of a Filofaxer

Some people are grand, gilded Encyclopaedias, wise in their contents, standing proud upon their solo lectern ready to present to the world, the words pouring over their subjects like a river of gold waiting to be embellished into a diamond ring more beautiful than any seen in shop windows nearby. Others are scrapbooks, scrawny and... Continue Reading →
