No PDA Please – We’re British

You’re sitting on the tube, headphones in, reading through a BuzzFeed article on your phone and minding your own business when sat opposite you, a young and beautifully in love couple, gazing into each others eyes, giggle euphorically and share small and repetitive kisses throughout the duration of the journey. PDA (Public Displays of Affection)... Continue Reading →

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 →

5 Reasons to Get the F*** off Facebook

Get the fuck off Facebook. Yes, all of you. Whether you have 50 friends or 500 friends, whether you FarmVille or Candy Crush, whether you're single or "It's Complicated", get the fuck off Facebook. Having grown up with the website, and being in the midst of the teenage epidemic we're faced with today, my views... 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 →

Something Old or Something New?

"Feminism" is the buzz word that's ruling the internet right now. What women can and can't do. What women should and shouldn't say. How women are being shown and how women are being treated. Of course, anyone who's bothered to read more than The Daily Mail headlines will know this isn't what feminism is all... Continue Reading →

The Arousal of Passion

"I have no special talents. I am only passionately curious." - Albert Einstein “Passion" - noun - a strong and barely controllable emotion. I’m so aroused by passion. Before you get excited, I don’t mean it like that. I mean talent. And skill. And enthusiasm. And a love for life. And a thirst for knowledge. And someone... 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 →

Totes Bants

Depressingly, it probably says more about me than other people when I am happy to stand here and accept 'the banter' that is now thrown about in everyday conversation. Although I am riddled with my own insecurities, as all of us are, when the hilarious blokes - and I say blokes because it's usually the... Continue Reading →

The Art of the Singleton

Standing on the roof tops, singing about woman power, shouting to my soul sistas and celebrating my own individuality; I am single and I don’t care. Over the past few years, I have watched my closest friends fall in and out of relationships, for good and for bad. I’ve had the friends that change themselves... Continue Reading →
