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 Kardashian trout pouts 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 a smoother face or bouncier boobs. This isn’t […]

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. […]

Going the Whole Hog

Six months ago, I gave up eating meat. No chicken, no beef, no fish – nothing with a face. As a self-professed foodie, the task seemed daunting. Sometimes the word vegetarian itself is enough to strike fear into our food-loving hearts, conjuring up other such horrifying notions as ‘low-fat’ and ‘gluten-free’. Pops was adamant that […]

Zombie Nation

Hello, my name is Shelly and I am a netaholic. (Hi Shelly.) This week, I am focusing on a nationwide epidemic as well as a personal addiction: the Internet. People say the things that aggravate you the most tend to be your own fatal flaws. Case in point; I cannot stand to see two people […]

23 and Not Pregnant

An ease in recession and revival of monetary fortunes usually leads to an influx of pregnant bellies. That, and a cold winter waiting for Orange is the New Black to return. Once upon a time, we would be blissfully unaware of the baby boom happening under our noses but thanks to Facebook, we are left […]

Time To Say Good Riddance

We live in a cyclical world where seasons are ever-changing and patterns are repeating. We recycle everything from cardboard to old jokes. We see this echoed primarily in the film industry, to the detriment of scriptwriting morals and high standards. Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2, take a bow. But there comes a time, (take note, […]

Hair Today, Bob Tomorrow

New Year, new you! Ladies, it’s time to shear yourselves like the sheep you are and get rid of those locks you’ve spent so long nurturing. Spring is around the corner and much like a break-up or a cross-border move, the changing of season prompts women everywhere to get a new ‘do. And like any […]

Mighty Mac Meal and a Diet Coke

So you may have heard me bitch and moan about the world and its addiction to jogging. Indulgence and general piggery have taken a backseat as hardcore sprinters continue to renounce anything that doesn’t involve a race to the death. Significant Other has notched up a half-marathon whilst I am currently foraging for late-night chocolate. […]

How Tequila Hangover

Roll over. Turn off alarm clock. Sit up straight. Oh, I actually don’t feel that terrib- OH DEAR GOD I’M GOING TO DIE IN THIS BED. And I have work in less than an hour. How can I go to work, when I have already died? Catch sight of zombie self in mirror. Attempt to […]
