A mid-month catch up: November

Look at me go. Another month of sticking to my word and penning (read: typing) one of these relatively pointless posts that make me feel like a slightly less rubbish blogger. They also provide me with a rather lovely opportunity to realise quite how little I’ve achieved in the month since writing the previous one,… Continue reading A mid-month catch up: November

I finally took ‘looking slimmer’ off my dressing agenda

For more years than I care to remember, there was a common key factor in my clothes shopping decisions and outfit selection process. Under the sort of harsh changing room lights that make you feel particularly shiny and toad-like anyway, or in my own bedroom, I have looked in the mirror at my prospective outfit… Continue reading I finally took ‘looking slimmer’ off my dressing agenda

I just realised that I actually have to make the things I’m going to do ‘one day’ happen

A favourite sentence starter of my boss’s is "If you get hit by a bus tomorrow…". To be clear and so that you don’t think he’s a sadist (debatable); the phrase is one he uses as a precursor to discuss the benefits of sharing skills and knowledge amongst the team. A valid point, but hearing… Continue reading I just realised that I actually have to make the things I’m going to do ‘one day’ happen

Missing: 1 x mojo, please return immediately if found

I’m not entirely sure what I’m going to write here, so bare with me while I offload a little. This will undoubtedly be somewhat self-indulgent - which most things I write are, I suppose – but feels needed all the same. This summer has been an odd one in several ways, and one of the… Continue reading Missing: 1 x mojo, please return immediately if found

A shocking confession: I almost never clothes shop online

The 'confession' I'm going to share today seems strange considering that 1) I spend a LOT of time on the internet, and 2) I post a shameful number of photos of myself loitering in the street to illustrate my outfits. Obviously I put it in the title (the clickbait was ridiculous with just the first… Continue reading A shocking confession: I almost never clothes shop online

SO sorry for the delayed response; will I ever get on top of life admin?

It was nearly 2am when I started this blog post, having intended to spend the entirety of the evening in question writing one. Not this one, actually, but another that I was yet to think of a subject for (so maybe this one? Who really knows) and never got around to doing. The reason? Admin.… Continue reading SO sorry for the delayed response; will I ever get on top of life admin?

Five things I want to make time for in the UK this summer

I think we can safely say that summer is officially here in the UK now – as safely as we ever can, in any case, which is probably not very safe at all, but my boobs are currently sunburnt and that’s what I’m basing my confidence in the matter on. In lieu of having any… Continue reading Five things I want to make time for in the UK this summer

Let’s catch up: what’s been happening (and what I’ve been wearing) in June

I’m writing this on a train, which is one of my favourite things about trains; you don’t have to be doing anything else because travelling from one place to another is the thing that you’re doing, so you can use the time to catch up on all the things that have fallen by the wayside… Continue reading Let’s catch up: what’s been happening (and what I’ve been wearing) in June
