• Is porn ruining sex?

    This blog post is coming at an appropriate time, with the impending Digital Porn Ban the UK government is initiating, is porn a bad thing?  What is the Digital Porn Ban?  Thanks to Jack I watched a youtube video from TLDR News that explains this ban brilliantly, and simply. Check it out here. that explains this ban brilliantly, and simply. To put it simple the Ban is to add age verification on most porn sites to be over the age of 18, not the whole click yes if you are over 18 but an actual verification of who you are, along with your age. As I was reading the comments…

  • My first extensive self care treatment; Laser Hair Removal.

    Photography:  The Wee Glass Lens I have been thinking of getting this done for years. Laser hair removal  would mean never ever having to shave again….or is it?   What is laser hair removal? It is termed a cosmetic procedure that uses a powerful laser or ‘intense pulsed light’ (IPL) to remove unwanted hair.  The heat from this light destroys hair follicles in the skin., which disrupts hair growth.  It is most effective on women with pale skin and dark hair.  The above statements I got from NHS website. If you want to know more check it out here.  I went to Signature Clinic on West Regent Street for it.…

  • Why I love Sex and the City inspired Cocktails and catch ups…

    Ever since I watched Sex and the City growing up I have always envisioned myself with 3 friends having a good fruity cocktail and catching up on each others news. The double C’s – cocktail and catch ups or coffees and catch ups. Was anyone else obsessed with Sex and the City? Or SNTC? I used to have to watch SNTC in secret. Like a hidden taboo. I remember it being on late on a Friday night. I used to have to initially watch it in secret because my mum didn’t want me watching ‘inappropriate’ content.  Which tbh SNTC isn’t inappropriate at all. Not by todays standards. Maybe back that…

  • Is being in love scary?

    Yes, in a nutshell. Being in love is a scary notion. Especially when you’ve been hurt in the past. It is a fear that resonates through your whole body and sometimes leaves you paralysed with fear.   Why write about love being scary? I was looking for inspiration. No topics were jumping out to me, nothing was making me want to type, no topics were jumbling around my mind. I had a mind blank, when your looking for topics to write about there has to be a line between what you share and what you don’t share. Like when I wrote my blog post about Neil, my step dad’s passing…

  • My struggle to feel pretty…

    I can be pretty… Even typing this out makes me feel uncomfortable. It makes me feel arrogant and up myself. Which I know I’m not. But the struggle to feel pretty shouldn’t just be an issue of arrogance.  Being called ugly is something I am quite well acquainted with. Being called ‘ugly’ is something I used to get really upset by. I mean who wouldn’t? I think for everyone its like a trigger word that brings on a floodgate of shame, embarrassment and lowered self esteem. Or even sadness.  But why does that word hurt so much? I know ugly is a negative word. I know it is. It is…

  • How I Shop Red Carpet Looks on a Budget…

    I have been really interested in red carpet looks recently… And its because I am in planning mode. My 30th Birthday is coming up in 9 weeks and I want an amazing outfit to feel all glam and laaaaaa.  I know laaa isn’t really a word but its more like a sound… just all lalalaaaaa. Do you know what I mean? Or maybe not ahaha.  I usually have an idea or inspiration in mind (for going out out outfits) and I go direct to it but for my 30th birthday I am drawing a blank. I am not sure if its because I don’t feel like I’ll be 30 soon.…

  • Random Acts of Kindness…

    I’ve seen these across my facebook feed. Whilst they are amazing it just seems so surreal. That can’t actually happen to me, can it? Well heres my story of a random act of kindness What happened? This weekend I am in Aberdeen visiting my mum, with Jack.  As usual I am running behind completing/starting this weeks blog post so I decide I’ll bring my laptop with me to work on it during the train ride to Aberdeen (it’s several hours so I’d planned on getting a first draft done during the journey. Seems reasonable right?). Apparently that wasn’t meant to be the case. On Fridays my work shift is 8am…

  • Clubbing without Make up on…

    Now… I’ve done this a few times.. clubbing without make up on and it feels … so damn liberating.  I’ve done this a few times.  But after last nights adventures with JS to Berkleys, Delmonicas and Polo. (Documented some of it on my instagram stories – check  it out if you can. I apologise for my horrible singing in advance.) I realised I’ve gathered enough data to accurately report back on how it feels like. That sounds so clinical… because in a way it is.  I was worried that it would only feel a certain way once or twice – or because I felt one way when I was single…

  • The blood test results are in….

    I’ve been back to work for a couple of days now… and after being off for over 2 weeks I am trying to look into the consequences of the blood test results. I had been off with a viral infection.  Although my doctor initially wasn’t sure why I was so run down and achy. She initially thought it could have been glandular fever.  She hadn’t seen me since I went in to get my consultation for my anti-baby prescription several weeks previously.  This is my way of saying am going on the pill so I don’t have any unfortunate baby surprises being in a monogamous relationship with my boyfriend.  Anyways…

  • “Loneliness is part of your biology…”

        This is quoted from Kurzgesagt  – In a Nutshell. An educational youtube channel that Jack introduced me to. Loneliness is part of your biology – this is linked to our basic instinct to go into groups to survive. But does it have to be? What is Kurzgesagt – In a Nutshell all about and how did I find out about it? At first glance it looked like a fun, school friendly educational youtube channel explaining complex issues/thoughts/ideas in a simple and aesthetically pleasing manner. Which, as you can see from the screen shoot of their about page below, it is! (Love it when your first impression on something…
