  • Striking the Balance Between Power Woman and Delicate Flower Part 2 of the Delicate Flower Rant
    In recent years, a new caricature has been added to society’s ‘roles for women’. Alongside ‘delicate flower’, and ‘loud RELATEABLE tomboy’, sits ‘power woman’.

    Recently I listened to a podcast, which is something that, due to struggling to concentrate, I haven’t been able to do for a long time. It was all about koalas..

  • Birthday and The Past Year Reflection Crisis
    It was my birthday last week. I’m 24. I feel like a lot has changed in the last year. And I guess it has. I’m feeling quite shaky in my identity right now…something that I imagine many people experience when it gets to a ‘celebration’ of 12 months of your life passing by. And so I decided to make a list of the main things that have happened, and how I’ve changed.

  • Cereal Reviews: Sainsburys Mini Jam Croissants
    Last week, Sainsburys released a new cereal to replace the limited edition Mini Cinnamon Rolls that came out back in January this year. Naturally, I HAD to try it – particularly as it’s not common for UK cereals to release limited edition or seasonal flavours. Shreddies, Coco Pops, Shredded Wheat and Weetabix are a few … Read moreCereal Reviews: Sainsburys Mini Jam Croissants
  • Reflecting on ‘Supermarket Flowers’
    Today I went on a very short morning walk, in the cold crisp air (it’s Autumn), with the sunlight just breaking through from behind the clouds.
