GIVE ME THE DRUGS BACK! My Struggle with Birth Control Cold Turkey


Today I threw a full-on wobbly because the house was a little bit untidy. Two Fridays ago I had to leave a bar my boyfriend was playing a gig in because every time someone tried to talk to me I nearly broke down in uncontrollable, sobbing tears. I’ve cried when someone has looked at me just because they were looking... Read the rest of this post...

How Looking After a Puppy for Two Weeks Has Taught Me That I’m Not Yet Ready for Motherhood


Sometimes, just sometimes, you think you might be ready for something. And sometimes, when my friends are having babies and getting pets and doing all of that grown up stuff, I think I might be just about ready for that next step in life too. We’ve been talking about getting a puppy for some time. A lovely little bundle of... Read the rest of this post...

4 Reasons We Need to Talk About Valentine’s Day


Yesterday, as I was sat against our living room radiator, cradling a cup of tea to warm my frozen fingers, whilst simultaneously attempting to stop the puppy from destroying everything in sight, the boyfriend popped his head around the door to say goodbye, with an added, ‘You haven’t got anything for Valentine’s Day, have you?’ And I hadn’t.

But although the roads were life threatening and terrifying, that wasn’t our main concern. Being three white women travelling through the arse-end... Read the rest of this post...

On Not Letting Pride Get in the Way of Happiness

never give up

I recently made a move to Scotland to chase my dreams of climbing mountains as much as possible. Instead, I found myself working all day every day and couldn’t even muster the energy to get up and go outside when I wasn’t working. This was not me. I am productive and outdoorsy and happy.

Sometimes We Just Need To Shake It Off, Taylor Swift Style

Dance Like There's Nobody Watching

It’s been a tough couple of weeks –  I’m incredibly homesick (something my nomadic mindset found very hard to deal with!), the weather has been so vile and I work so many hours that my nature-loving, mountain-climbing self has been bound by four walls for what seems like eternity. There have been tears, lots of tears, and there has been a significant... Read the rest of this post...

On Losing Friends


I recently ruffled a few feathers that have cost me several friendships – friendships I don’t really expect to get back, and controversially, friendships I don’t really miss. You see, to me friendships are a two-way street. Of being both supportive for each other and making time for each other. A good friendship will last across continents and months of...
