Good Vibes Only: Adventures in Female Matrubation

Go fuck yourself. No seriously. It's good for your health (yes seriously) it can reduce your risk of heart disease and diabetes type 2 (yes really) and knocking one (or, two or three, delete as aprop) is basically going to sort out some of that stress. Cheaper than a massage. And a lot more fun.

The Great British Chippie with Six By Nico

I don't think I've seen my news feed so excited about a restaurant launch, since, well, ever. But then, a restaurant that changes every six weeks with menus inspired by places and memories? Who can blame them? Six By Nico goes all out with the nostalgia vibes for their inaugural menu launch "The Chippie." How can you not be totally hyped by something like that? So of course I booked in. Really, how could I not? I would get to eat everything on the menu (taking away the whole dining paralysis when everything looks good) and I'd be getting a full story told through food.

Sunday night and Six By Nico is heaving. It's a small restaurant for sure, but for late on a Sunday night they were packed. The vibe is relaxed, clean and minimal with the exception of the large neon VI and the screen above the restaurant, showing a live-stream birds eye view of the kitchen plating up which is a nice and unexpected tough. Story really is king here.

Long Live The BFF

I'm a hopeless romantic. Not in the classic sense of the word, or indeed in the modern now that I come to think about it. Less cut out hearts and love songs more about hope and trust and laughter.
And tears. And screaming matches. Goofy faces. Sitting in with take out. Clasped hands, sore feet and walking home long after the sun has came up. The kind of relationships that leave you feeling completely and utterly full. There is this expectation though that all of this comes from one person. Confidante, lover, colleague, collaborator, partner in crime – no one person can tick all these boxes, at least not all of the time. It's why romance is dead, at least in the traditional sense. Forget your Mills and Boon and Nicholas Sparks. I'm here for the BFF.

Gin Inspired Dining with Gin71

The gin bubble isn't showing any signs of popping any time soon, so the arrival of a Gin71 in my local merchant city was a pleasant addition to the areas burgeoning restaurant and bar scene.  Tucked neatly away down Virginia Court, this intimate restaurant reads as a love letter to all things gin - from their extensive cocktail list to their carefully crafted food menu.

Feminism & Fashion: Are we leaning in or selling out?

“We should all be Feminists.” I mean. Obviously right? It's no longer just a statement but a battle cry. Though this time it's not on a protest sign or a bumper sticker. It's a t-shirt. Oh, and it comes with a £500 price tag. Yeah, sure, that seems reasonable. Dior's t-shirt tribute to Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie is hardly the first time a luxury brand has dipped it's toe in to commodity activism. Hell, even Chanel's faux protests from S/S 15 led by Cara Delevingne marching with girls in rainbow tweeds and twinsets wasn't the first outing of fashion using feminism as a statement. And look, we get it. Everyone's got something to sell. But should feminism be held to a higher standard than a marketing ploy?

Lazy Sunday evening dining at Browns Brasserie

Following a massive revamp that pays more than a passing nod to Glasgow's art deco history, coupled with the launch of a brand new menu - there never seemed a better time to visit Browns Brasserie. Based in the heart of Glasgow, sitting prominently in the old post office on George Square, a hop, skip and a jump from Queen Street Station - Browns has all the hallmarks of a classic brasserie. Lush booths, a well stocked bar and a well trained and turned out staff. So, I suppose the question is, is the food actually any good?

What the fuck is so offensive about body hair?

Apparently nearly half (48%) of Scottish men dislike body hair on a woman, with over a third (33%) having been tempted to or encouraged women to remove their body hair. Let that just sink in for a moment.  Let that wash over you for a hot second in hot little waves of rage. Allow this to be followed by an eye roll because this was a press release I received earlier this week for a hair removal clinic. In 2017.  Well, where do I even begin to unpack this hot mess? The key points I got from it though - most men don't actually give two shits about your pubic regime, and the assumption that women should care is a big old bunch of bullshit. I mean, look, if you're in to sleeping with women and you're going to have a hissy fit because her pussy doesn't meet your exacting standards, then frankly we've got bigger fish to fry and quite frankly, you have no business having sex to begin with.
