I took a little break from writing about all things fitness, and wrote a guest post for my gorgeous friend Rhian, over at her blog Chapter & Circle, about being in a long distance relationship. You should probably go and check the post out here. And take a peek at the rest of her blog while you’re… Continue reading What I’ve Learned About Long Distance Relationships.
I was always the skinny one. It was my thing. I am remarkably average in most respects, but one thing I could excel at was being thin. And without trying too. I was one of those annoying, naturally skinny girls that people love to hate. My size became the one thing that my self esteem hinged on.… Continue reading Skinny to Strong: A Personal Journey.
Dear Milton Keynes, I love you. Perhaps that’s a bit forward, but it’s true. I was out and about in you yesterday, on the most beautiful early spring day and you were looking amazing. Now I know that everywhere looks great in the sunshine, but you REALLY do. Like, really really do. Because you are super young… Continue reading A love letter to my home town
So when I became single 18 months ago, I hit the dating scene. I had my fair share of first dates – truly the good, the bad and the ugly. But one of them tops the lot for being simply AWFUL in so many ways. In fact, all the ways. Over a year has passed… Continue reading The worst date in the history of ever.
Okay, so this is a biggie, and I can’t pretend that I’m going to be able to do the subject justice, but I’m going to give it my best shot. I feel like I should also add a disclaimer to say that this is only my personal take on the issue, and everyone’s experience of… Continue reading Domestic violence: break the silence.
Okay, so I know that motivational quotes are a bit wanky and cringe, and I usually hate all that stuff, but bear with me on this one… (BTW is it ‘bear’ or ‘bare’ – both look wrong…). The past 18 or so months have seen some big changes in my life; basically, a complete life overhaul.… Continue reading Words to live by.
*unless you already do. 1. I once fell off a horse in front of TV legend, Dawn French. Accidentally. Not as a deliberate attempt to get her attention. I was fine, thanks for asking. 2. I went indoor skydiving on a first date and knocked out the instructor’s front tooth. Again, accidentally. I never saw… Continue reading 10 things you don’t know about me*
Dear Reader, I appear to have developed a case of what I’m calling, Smug Twat-itis. Even if you haven’t heard the term (likely – given that I just coined it. How do I go about getting a trademark on that…?) you’re likely to have encountered people who are afflicted with it. You know the type –… Continue reading “Smug Twat-itis”
As I approach my 30th birthday (feel free to send presents. I like pretty things. ) I’ve been seriously considering getting a tattoo. On my hand, of all places. Something small and delicate, but a tattoo nonetheless. People who know me would be likely to burst out laughing/stare at me in horror if I told them… Continue reading I really want a tattoo. At least, I think I do…
#nofilter Instagram. Twitter. Facebook. I use them all, obsessively. I think in hashtags (I sometimes speak in them too) and every photo is taken with an Instagram filter in mind. I share my life on social media. Or rather, an edited version of it. If you believe my Instagram page, I live in a Amaro-tinted… Continue reading Livin’ in an Instagram world.
