I traveled around Australia with my cousin when I was 20. Not to be too dramatic (oh go on then) but I had no idea what I supposed to do with my life back then (still not totally sure). I don’t really think anyone does, unless you have one of those true callings like medicine… Continue reading Back to Byron Bay
How do your clothes make you feel?
Is it how you express yourself, how you hide yourself, is it all about comfort, or just some stuff you put on your body because being naked all the time is frowned upon? I always think even people who try not to conform end up looking like all the other people trying to do the… Continue reading How do your clothes make you feel?
Insert funny comment…
What do you do when your mind goes blank? I am never without a funny comment or comeback. Annoyingly now and again it’s just a bit too late. Those are the moments that kill me, if only we could request to redo the argument so I can really burn you. #controlfreak. But right now stress… Continue reading Insert funny comment…
What does dressing your age even mean?
I had one of those moments at work the other day where I had a little think about the way I dress. Just a split second, after a comment someone made. I was wearing my gold Converse with some frilly socks. A couple of people said they haven’t worn socks like that since they were… Continue reading What does dressing your age even mean?
What makes guilty pleasures guilty?
There are some very socially acceptable cool things that make me very happy. High quality cocktails in great bars with friends (and let’s face it crappy cocktails in crappy bars with the same friends are also good). Going to see gigs, open air festivals, trying new restaurants, and shopping for amazing stuff. But then there… Continue reading What makes guilty pleasures guilty?
I think I’m becoming a bit of a master of this. If you choose to live on the other side of the world from your most important people, you need to get good at it. The quickest route from Aus to the UK is still about 24 hours! I’ve now done this return flight 4… Continue reading Flying economically.
So fitness, who knew?
One minute you’re enjoying your daily afternoon twix and coffee. Next minute it’s a green tea and a protein bar. How does this happen? At what point did I turn the corner from unfit 38 yr old, to 40 yr old gym addict? I’m still not totally sure. I blame my Dad. He has a… Continue reading So fitness, who knew?
My trip home, really universe?!
Visiting Home, back in the UK, is one of my most favourite things to do. When I first moved over to Aus I went home at least once a year. But this time I had pushed it to 18 months. You realise that as much as you want to see your family and friends more… Continue reading My trip home, really universe?!
Christmas Parties, why?
Last week saw me sitting through a 5 hour business update whilst dressed as Buffy the Vampire Slayer (to be specific, original Kristy Swanson Movie Buffy, prom scene) with stake and all. I was sitting next to Holly Golightly and Kath Day-Night, while watching a lady dressed as Wonder Woman explain our international strategy?!This was… Continue reading Christmas Parties, why?
Not everyone needs to know my opinion! Or do they?
Do you ever get that feeling that you are an imposter. Just playing at being a grown up. I have a friend back home with a child who for the first few years of his life was sure a grown up would burst in at any moment, demand she give the baby back and stop… Continue reading Not everyone needs to know my opinion! Or do they?
