When most people think of the '90s, they think of bootleg jeans dragging on the ground, undercuts and Will Smith's life getting 'flipped-turned upside down'. I spent the '90s living in my childhood, overdosing on Zooper Doopers and constantly covered in bruises. While walking down the street recently, I watched a group of kids argue… Continue reading The things that never should have changed from my childhood
Edging closer to 30, I really thought I'd have my life together by now. I'm not talking about a six-figure paying job, a husband, one and a half kids and a mortgage-free home. I mean just being less socially awkward. I am no less awkward than I was when I was 11. I may as… Continue reading I shouldn’t have said that
Picture this... Three weeks ago, I was sitting on a beautiful beach on a relatively remote island in Malaysia. The air was warm, the crystal-clear water was brimming with Nemos dancing among fluorescent coral and the sky was streaked with the most beautiful pink and gold stains. The sun was setting. Trying to immerse myself… Continue reading 5 places you should never take a selfie
I am a self-confessed introvert. I go to parties and, as soon the food has been eaten, I plan my exit strategy. I am racked with nerves when it's my time to speak in a meeting, and I usually prefer to be in my PJs watching the 'Living Room' on a Friday night than downing… Continue reading When did it become cool to be an introvert?
I heard an interesting fact this week: the first person who is going to live to 150 years of age has already been born, and they grew up (or are growing) up with dogs. It wasn't the worry that it may be me who was to blow out 150 candles (I don't even know how… Continue reading The hidden benefits of having a dog
A work bestie will laugh and then tell you straight up how much you stuffed up and then how to fix it. They genuinely care about the repercussions.
Globally, people are becoming increasingly busy. High pressure jobs and high pressure social expectations are forcing people to rely on the fastest and easiest way to gather news. In a digital world, newspapers are no longer being consumed over a morning coffee. News is being read in transit and in fleeting moments of boredom with… Continue reading Real news is dying
Everyone has a guilty pleasure. Mine is spooning my dog on the couch on lazy Sundays and binge-watching reality TV program repeats. I'm not ashamed of my guilty pleasure, I'm ashamed of the pedestal of expertise that I put myself up on. I lie there in my slothy glory and judge these poor 'real' people… Continue reading Reality TV makes everyone an expert
I'm a millennial. If I believed everything I read, I would never be able to buy a house or hold down a stable job. I rent, I spend my money on social engagements and I cross through the 'special' gates at the airport at least once a year. I must be an evil and self-involved… Continue reading If your dog could talk…
I didn't win Tattslotto this week. Again. I didn't win that all-inclusive holiday that I mentally planned my annual leave around either. I also now must continue to spend my hard earned on weekly groceries because a year's free worth definitely is not landing on my doorstep. The most common thing that people say when… Continue reading Losers can still win at life
