PMS = Psychotic Man-Eating Syndrome

PMS = Psychotic Man-Eating Syndrome

I remember the day my period arrived. It was August and I was in my school toilet cubicle staring down at my M&S pants which were lined with a brown murky colour. I thought I had shit myself. I was 13 and totally unprepared for this monthly-life burden. Once I realised my excrement was in […]

The Hypocrisy Of Shaming America’s First Lady

The Hypocrisy Of Shaming America’s First Lady

“Melania, Blink Twice If You Need Help” was just one of the signs I saw at the Women’s March on Saturday. Sure it was funny. But then I went on my Facebook feed and I saw memes mocking Melania for either her outfit choice at the inauguration or her accent. In fact I saw more […]

Please don’t ever dirty your knee to propose to me!

Please don’t ever dirty your knee to propose to me!

Not sure about you but I’ve just about managed to rinse my eyes out from all the engagement statuses and photos that popped up on my Facebook feed over Christmas. But brace yourselves. We have Valentine’s Day coming up. So make sure you load up on so more eye drops! Yes, non-original proposals are very […]

The therapeutic thing about therapy!

The therapeutic thing about therapy!

Therapy gets a bad rep. Every time I tell someone I’m off to see my therapist people look at me with uncomfortable eyes and with a slight glint of hope that I’m joking.  I’m not joking. I love going to therapy! What could be any better than fifty minutes of talking about yourself to someone […]

Reflecting on 2016

Reflecting on 2016

I say this every year – but I cannot believe it’s the end of this year!!! 2016 got a bad reputation the minute David Bowie left the planet. Then more icons started to leave. Then Brexit and Trump happened and everyone had a melt down; but I’ve actually loved this year!  A journalist emailed me […]

Madonna is right: There are rules if you’re a girl!

Madonna is right: There are rules if you’re a girl!

We all know that society’s expectations of women are changing – but unfortunately not as fast as it should be! This came clear to me once again whilst I watched Madonna’s Billboard speech this morning. As she accepted her award, she stood in front of her audience and spoke with conviction on just how hard it […]

Oxford Uni Talk: The Ugly Truth Behind My Perfect Instagram

Oxford Uni Talk: The Ugly Truth Behind My Perfect Instagram

This photo is me. But it’s not really. My boobs aren’t that big – as you can see! My skin is that smooth and my face doesn’t look like that. So basically that’s not me. This is an early modelling photo of me in More Magazine. Money was tight back then… Sadly More Magazine is […]

Why Does It Feel Awkward To Admit I’m Giving Up Alcohol?

Why Does It Feel Awkward To Admit I’m Giving Up Alcohol?

It’s day 2 of being sober and I’m already shaking. I’m shaking with the thought that someone might ask me if I want to go out for “one or two…”. No, don’t worry I’m not an alcoholic. But I do love a drink. Social drinking has been part of my life since I started university […]

He’s not retarded, he’s my brother.

He’s not retarded, he’s my brother.

Dear man in the supermarket who called my brother a retard, Retard, spaz, fucktard and sperg are just words.  They are words which describe a person with disabilities. They are words that are insulting to those who have disabilities and to their loved ones who support them.   These words are hurtful.  My brother’s name […]

Men Need Help To Track The Clitoris, Not Our Periods.

Men Need Help To Track The Clitoris, Not Our Periods.

There’s a new app which allows men to navigate and track when their girlfriend and female colleague’s are on their period.  The aim of the app is to help men avoid women, whilst they are on their time of the month.  Lovely. The process is very simple and it’s quite scary that an app is […]

When Did It Become Acceptable To Flake?

When Did It Become Acceptable To Flake?

Flaking is currently the cardinal sin of friendship. Yet it seems like we’re all doing it. We’re all acting like flakes. I’m the first to admit that I can be flakey. Excuses usually ranging from work commitments, tiredness, or quite simply because I don’t want to go out. As well as me doing the flaking, […]

Casper The Unfriendly Ghost

My final year of university was a great time. Not to brag but my phone was blowing up with social and date requests every single minute. Ok, maybe 90% of calls were from my mum, but nonetheless I was having a great time,  being free and single.  Whilst at the gym, minding my own business, […]

Real Friends

Real Friends

I have just stumbled across a recent survey as to what makes someone a good friend. Apparently 2000 people think a good friend is someone who doesn’t sleep with your partner and who isn’t “too tight”. Lols. I mean, yeah, a mate who doesn’t sleep with my boyfriend or who doesn’t make me pay for […]

Sorry, not sorry!

Sorry, not sorry!

Beyoncé and Lena Dunham are just two of the many people who are trying to get us girls to stop saying sorry.  Why? I hear you ask. Because saying sorry is apparently a sign of weakness.  Well, I’m sorry, not sorry. But I love apologising! Firstly, I’m British. I’ll say sorry even when you buy […]

An Elephant Never Forgets

An Elephant Never Forgets

Last year, I was sat interviewing people for a project I was working on. Half way through the interviews, I could see in the corner of my eye, a girl frantically waving at me. I continued to talk to my colleagues but as my eyes focused on the girl who was walking towards me, I […]

I Dont Want Children. And I’m OK With That! 

I Dont Want Children. And I’m OK With That! 

According to fertility experts in today’s news, 25 is the age that we should all get pregnant. Yes you read that correctly. Twenty five. Straight after uni, when we probably don’t have our careers in place and not a penny to scratch our arse with. Brilliant! Thanks for adding to the pressure experts! *wraps self […]

The Issue With Daddy Issues

The Issue With Daddy Issues

From the age of five I can remember seeking my parents’ approval.  I don’t know where the drive for wanting their affirmation stemmed from. My only guess is it all started when they used to clap if I hadn’t wet the bed or when I washed my hands (with soap) after taking a poo.  Flash […]

I don’t want to see your penis!

I don’t want to see your penis!

I’m really sorry, but I don’t want to see your penis! If you think this is an original way to break the ice, you’d be wrong. I receive erect penis images at least three times a week. Yes you read that correctly. At least three times a week, I receive an unwanted dick pic.  Whether […]

This is why you can’t be friends with an ex.

Exes can’t be friends. There. I’ve said it. *downs a bottle of tequila and stuffs ears with cotton wool* Ok fine! I’m sure there are some cases, where exes have gotten on and everything is honky dory. They probably go on holiday with their current partner and ex, and laugh about all the good times […]
