Period Club

Macho guys and squeamish girls, look away now. I’m talking about something that happens once a month to half of the population and yet I still feel like I’m a member of some twisted secret society. First rule of Period Club: Do not talk about Period Club. We are essentially bleeding for a quarter of […]

‘Tis the Season to be Jiggly

If one more person talks to me about getting into shape for Christmas, I shall scream. For the entire span of November and December, we seem to have a ticking countdown clock to The Big Day where all our hard work will have culminated into a sleek physique in a sexy Christmas cardigan. Crash course […]

I Hate Cooking

Following on from last week’s rant, I’d like to tackle another assumption that is widely believed about the female population. I hereby debunk the theory that all women love to cook. We’ve come a long way since the Stepford wife stereotype that we all love to don an apron and whip up a meal for […]

I Hate Shopping

As we will shortly be heading into the season of commercialism and excessive spending, I’d like to take this time to reject a massive female stereotype and make a bold confession: I hate shopping. While I love having new clothes, the act of buying them, for me, is tantamount to torture. I don’t understand the […]

Eat. Sleep. Eat. Repeat.

Once upon a time, I drank a little wine…and managed to STAY AWAKE. These past few years, however, my ability to keep consciousness has deteriorated rapidly. Sure, I’ve had the occasional nap in a toilet cubicle in my teenage years but lately I have been chronically drowsy to the point of zombie in a pub […]

Espresso Yourself

I remember my first cup of proper coffee like it was yesterday. It was a simple Americano but I embraced that mahogany sultan as if it were a new-born child, thankful for every decision that had led me to that moment. It was a mind-blowing experience, like an LSD hallucination of Beatles’ proportions. I got […]

Netflix and …Chill?

At the risk of sounding far more mature than my 24 years, it seems to me that staying in really is the new going out. Bar the bi-annual nightclub appointment, most of my Friday and Saturday nights are spent in front of the television. My excuses include: I work weekends. S.O. is away gigging with […]

Parental Advisory: Technological Content

Our parents have given us everything; from manners to mannerisms. In fact, they ruled the roost until the Age of Technology dawned and the roles were rapidly reversed. When it comes to adapting to a world run by devices, we have become the primary caregivers. Just as they helped us with counting apples, now we […]

Life In Plastic

So apparently now the world revolves around Kylie Jenner’s lips. Newsfeeds are peppered with as many Kardashian trout pouts as refugee victims and cancer survivors, and the worst thing is, they are presented as images to aspire to, or ‘life goals’. I cannot understand the willingness to go under the knife for the sake of […]

Aussie Rules? Isn’t That a Shampoo?

I hate to fulfil such a tired cliché but I am a girl and I do not like sports. Sport is my Achilles’ heel, my Kryptonite and my lifelong foe. The discord stems back to when I was a kid. I never excelled on the physical field and I dreaded any break time spent outside. […]
