Statement of intent

Leaving the house without putting on perfume?  You may as well have asked me to leave my shoes at home while I’m at it. I’ve worn perfume every single day of lockdown, without fail. I’ve worn perfume near enough every…

Friendship in Lockdown

I’m not sure how I expected my friendships to change in lockdown, the only thing I knew was that they did.  I was there for the zoom quizzes and that hot minute we all thought House Party was a good…

I was never really one for resolutions.

I was never really one for resolutions. Not that I didn’t like the idea of them – lord knows I love some navel-gazing and goal setting (some would call it my raison d’etre) – but I’ve spent quite the time…

I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling depressed too

Here’s a run down of things I’ve cried over the past week: baby cows and when I’m getting to see them, a bin bag splitting because I didn’t get “the good bags” and lest we forget – the god damn…

Opting out of Mother’s Day

It started with Bloom and Wild. Then Superdrug. And Marks and Spencer.  This year more brands are choosing to offer an opt-out option for any Mother’s Day marketing.  And frankly? Thank fuck for that.  While targetted advertising and emails go…

Barbie can be anything but

Barbie can be anything except perhaps a feminist. This year Mattel are celebrating 60 years of Barbie and yet we’re still asking if she is and still should be a role model. Barbie has always courted controversy – famously being…
