The other day I went to the doctor's. Totally routine, expected to be there for 10 minutes while the nurse checked my blood pressure and gave me my latest contraceptive injection. I ended up being there 35 minutes, and walked the long way home, taking advantage of the crisp and chilly Autumn air (my fave).… Continue reading Lifestyle Update
It's November. It is officially pre-Christmas time. Accept it. I start my Christmas shopping early, and by "early" I mean on Boxing Day. I just get very excited! I love giving presents - showing my appreciation to people, showing how much they mean to me, getting to really spoil them if I can. This year… Continue reading 6 Small Businesses to Support With Your Christmas Cash
It's finally October! My favourite season is here! Bring on the pumpkin spice, bring on the longer evenings, bring on the one-figure temperatures - my time is here! But the best thing about October? Well, it's obviously Halloween. To be honest, as much as I love dressing up and getting a bit tipsy at the… Continue reading The Halloween Films You Need For a Spooky Night In
Aaaand we're back in the office! Not every day of the week, just two days for now, but it's a start.

Well, bare with me and I'll explain, alright? I guess "realist" is probably the most familiar term when describing this outlook, but "positive pessimism" does differ slightly. In case ya… Continue reading Practising Positive Pessimism

I remember at the very beginning of lockdown when everyone was talking about how much money we would all save since all the shops were shut and we couldn't go out to eat all the time. HA! LIES! Because I've had some extra cash lying around, I have been a little spend-happy (when am I… Continue reading Lockdown Purchase Rundown
I think it's safe to say that I watch more YouTube than any other media - more than the telly, more than Netflix. I like how accessible it feels, I like that the content tends to be shorter than a TV show or movie, and I feel like I don't need to give it my… Continue reading My YouTubers, Now Your YouTubers?
"Isn't she not a thing of beauty? Don't you just want to not eat her so you can just sit and admire her? She does look as good as she tastes..." Ok, enough objectifying the cookie. She's cute, we get it. But, seriously, look how cute she is. I can't believe I was actually able… Continue reading Chocolate Chunk Cookies Chunkier Than Me
