On an almost regular basis, my inbox gets a lovely little surprise in the form of ‘The Dolly Mail’; the unashamedly brilliant Dolly Alderton’s newsletter, which covers everything from fashion, food, frolics and friendship. This week, ‘The Dolly Mail’ covered happiness. In all of its glory. Dolly wrote what was essentially a love letter to all of the tiny little things that make her happy. … Continue reading Oh No…What Does Happiness Mean To You?

Heather discusses why she’s not sure she’ll ever feel like a ‘proper’ writer and what that means to her. Continue reading Oh No…Am I A Proper Writer?
Ask anybody who uses Twitter who their top ten favourite writers/creatives on the site are and I can guarantee that Emma Gannon’s name will pop up. Emma is the former social media editor at GLAMOUR and The Debrief, a Twitter extraordinaire and her weekly newsletter has been featured in magazines alongside Lena Dunham’s newsletter (who she is basically BFF’s with).

She lies next to me as I write this. Her large black eyes closed, her stomach moving deeply up and down. I am overwhelmed with calmness, which is an antithesis of a feeling, but it is true; that is the most accurate way to describe how she makes me feel, even if she is currently snoring incredibly loudly. When I am away, I miss that … Continue reading This Isn’t Your Usual Love Letter
2015 has been a tricky year for yours truly, mostly because it was nothing like what I expected. After a mostly hellish 2014, a year that began with uni stresses and fake friends and soon became unfortunately dominated by a hideous health scare, with one of the few high points being my graduation, I was excited for 2015, a comparatively boring twelve months of sorting … Continue reading 2016, Let’s Do This.
Every year, the same Facebook warriors take to our news feeds and write the generic status’ of how “*insert new year* is going to be THE year”, that they’re going to delete everybody who hadn’t made an effort with them in the previous year and well, quite frankly, you’re lucky to have made it; I mean, who knows how you’d cope without their updates regarding their kids … Continue reading 2016: The Year Of More.

All names in the post have been changed for obvious reasons. When I started my degree in the Arts, I was under no illusion as to how narrow I had made my career prospects. Three years and one BA (Hons) degree later, I still didn’t regret my choice. I loved every moment of my subject and I loved my university life. Now was the fun … Continue reading My London Adventure: The Desperation of a Post-Uni Job Search
The events that took place on 13.11.15 are forever going to be etched in the memories of those alive right now. History was made and not for positive reasons. Gunmen attacked a crowded concert hall, The Bataclan in Paris, killing 80 innocent people. As well as the events that took place at the Bataclan, innocent people were also gunned down in bars and restaurants, totally … Continue reading Vive Le France
“But you don’t look sick!” I get that a lot. Which, don’t get me wrong, I like to hear. On mornings where I look in the mirror and it feels like Gollum is looking back at me, it’s nice to know that I actually look like a human being. On the other hand, you constantly have to try and explain what’s going on with … Continue reading Be Kind
