My Living Room Decor


I have been meaning to do this blog post for almost a year now. I think it's high time I showed you around Flat 53. Well, not all of it. Just the living room as that's the only bit I have had a chance to do up so far. I'll get round to the rest of it eventually including #dressingtablegoals (sigh).

It's January guys and we are over the worst of winter and on the slow walk to summer. Some of you may have piled on a few pounds over the holidays like me (ho ho ho) or perhaps it's January and you have decided it's time to kick ye ol' bad habits.

10 Commandments for Anti-Social England



This is a short post to say, the stereotype is true. Scottish people are epically friendly and the English…not so much. CONTROVERSIAL.

Be Brave and Enjoy the Journey


Apologies for my MIAness peeps. I was sucked into the black hole of academia (i.e M.A term one). But I am back and ready to give you a full update.

Going Back to University


You have probably seen the “omg semester 1 is starting” memes going around on Facebook right now. For me, the feeling is that x100 mixed with a little bit of excitement and a sprinkling of “what am I doing with my life?”

7 Steps to Becoming Really Good at Small Talk


Small talk can be awkward for a lot of us. I don’t know anyone who has told me they enjoy it or even don’t mind it so, at least we are all in the same boat.

3 Kitchen Tricks to Speed up Cooking


Most nights, once I get back from work, I'm making dinner. I'm no Jamie Oliver but I can't possibly live off takeaways and I don’t think it would do my health any favours (it’s just you and me muffin top. Us against the world).

How to Never Wake up Tired


Is it just me or does it seem to be that no matter how much you sleep, when it comes to waking up during the week, you are always tired!

Clutter and the Carrier Bags


Clutter. Clutter. Clutter. It can be a real problem, especially when you are living in a small space. Having said that, I've come to realise human belongings tend to spread like water - it will fill whatever space you give it. My clutter is no exception, or I should say, my carrier bags are no exception.

Deciding to Move to a New City


Moving to a new city can be a fresh start, it can also be daunting. I decided to move to London around 4 years ago. I was ready for a change and I worked in finance so, naturally, I had to do London at least once, right? At the same time, I was giving up all the things I love about living in Scotland and being close to family and friends. Plus, my already poor navigation skills would mean, I most probably, would never know my way around the city I was living in ever again.

How to Stop Buying Clothes But Having Nothing To Wear


This has to be the ultimate first world problem. ASOS is tired of you and you have no space in your cupboard.  You seem to shop all the time but never have anything to wear! It's a real problem because it wastes your time and money.

36 Biscuits – My Ultimate Office Procrastination Moment



It’s been a while since I’ve shared a story about what I have been getting up to. Mostly because I have been completely distracted by the general election and my cooking addition (I made meatballs last night, but possibly the biggest meatballs you have ever seen).

Why is My Handbag So Heavy?


Every once and a while, I notice my handbag getting a little heavy. I feel like I’m always switching my purse, phone and keys from handbag to handbag because those are the main things you need when you are going out. So then, what is all this other stuff in my bag!

Hair Removal: The Bane of my Life


Hair removal is quite possibly the bane of my life. I’m not trying to be over dramatic but in all honesty, it's time consuming, relentless and when you are living with a man, the situation is even worse. Sure I could just give up and let him see me in all my hairy glory… BUT I DON’T WANT TO! The mess up is, I like being hairless. It makes me feel glamorous but I also enjoy being bitter about it. I like to keep it on my list of “wrongs the world has done to women”.

Thank You Note for my Eyebrow Lady



To my lovely eyebrow lady.

Only you understand the importance of my eyebrows. They are on my face after all. My brows would be left to the mercy of my tweezers without you and I would continue down the road of eyebrow mess up and one day take a sharp left onto brow failure avenue.

Dirty Networking


I was recently at a “how to develop your career” talk at my company. I’ve been to hundreds of these throughout my graduate training, but it was put into my calendar and I had some time available so hey ho why not.

My Up-Cycling Fantasy (That was a Bit of a Nightmare)


I visited my family this weekend back in Scotland. I hadn’t been back in a while and mum was on another “I’m going to declutter everything!” rampage. In fact, she was on such a declutter frenzy that she even decluttered me right out the house. I was to pack my bags with all the extra things I had left there and get them out of the place.
