If Sex and the City was on TV today…

January 4, 2017

Rumour has it there is a third Sex and the City movie happening, and I think this is a very bad idea. Sorry Ladies! Don’t get me wrong, if it’s happening I’ll be watching it, but I’m concerned for the shows legacy and the characters endings. Whilst the original Sex and the City movie was all well and good (well, sort of, I mean I’m not sure what…

Academic performances, our ability to work, and even our attention spans are all declining as one little phone notification is enough to leave us seriously distracted and unable to concentrate. This information is shocking.…

Giraffe Southbank Centre, London, SE1 8XX www.giraffe.net When it comes to brunch I love my Pancakes, my French toast and my super sugary Lattes.

Dear Miranda Hobbes…

May 20, 2016

Dear Miranda, I owe you one big fat apology… As a teenage girl I watched you and your three best friends strutt across my screen every week, demonstrating to the world that women can have sex just like a man, we can talk like a man, and proving that unmarried women in their 30’s are not dried-up old spinsters who have something wrong with them, but they are simply…

Having completed my first ever Half Marathon in the October I wanted to take on something different, an experiment, so I decided to do the #100Runs100days challenge, the idea being quite obvious – run every single day for 100 days.

South East Asia Cravings

January 29, 2016

Cold beers on warm beaches, tasty street food in somewhat dodgy…
