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 […]

The Lure of Lucerne

If you’ve never been to the land of cheese and chocolate, then you are truly missing out. Switzerland is hands down the most scenic place I’ve ever visited and the city of Lucerne is top of the list. Having lived in Geneva for three months, I decided to visit the German speaking region of the […]

The Prodigal Sun

Welcome back, summer! God how I’ve missed you…I think…although, you do seem a little hotter than usual. And was it always this…sticky? Every year, the exact same phenomenon. You embrace the sunshine and bask in all its lustrous glory…for about ten minutes. And then you realise how much you hate the sun. And how ill […]

Beauty is in the Eye of the Mac Holder

Welcome to puberty, girls! Time to strip you of that charming disregard for your physical appearance and imbue you with a sense of embarrassment and self-disgust. That carefree childhood game of dress-up has now become a daily chore you must endure lest you feel like Shrek all day long. Appearances can be deceiving and that […]
