The Crush Chronicles


‘Crush’ Verb: ‘Deform, pulverize, or force inwards by compressing forcefully’. Noun: ‘A brief but intense infatuation for someone, especially someone unattainable’. Ah the ‘Crush’. A word and a concept that seems so dated and juvenile to us now. Something to be chronicled into the archives of our youths, along with various other subheadings: Braces, Bacne, Not Quite Real Bras, Toothy... Read the rest of this post...

Making Time for Me Whilst in a Relationship


I have always enjoyed my own space. Despite my yearnings for siblings as a child, I relished the almost total control of my time. I was lucky enough to have parents that didn’t push me into anything I didn’t want to do and this resulted in me doing very little, but having an absolutely blissful childhood to myself.

Book Boyfriends


A commercial money-making scheme or the most romantic day of the year, whether you love it or hate it, V day is looming. It’s the time of year where people tend to think about their ‘perfect partners’. I know of lots of perfect men, the only problem is that they don’t actually exist.

Waiting for That Special Someone

Snowmen Love

My word, I am only 24 and last month I was getting the ‘So, is there anyone special in your life?’ talk from certain members of my family. I guess it doesn’t help that my older sister is getting married. My answer was quite simply and honestly: ‘There’s nobody you need to know about, and it will be a long... Read the rest of this post...
