The Grinch Ain’t Stealing My Christmas

Everybody who knows me will be more than aware that I am, in fact, Cindy-Lou Who. I begin planning my wrapping theme in July, and I start thinking about the way I’ll decorate my grotto not long after. I squeal when a Christmas song comes on and I have enough festive jumpers to rival Zoe […]

Things Not to Say to an Engaged Woman

I’ve been engaged for about a year and a half and it’s been great.ย The feeling is indescribable – knowing your favourite person in the whole wide world wants to actually spend the rest of his life with you and is willing to sign a legally binding document to say so.

I realise this blog post most certainly isn’t going to apply to everyone, but with my birthday in less than a fortnight, I’ve been feeling reflective (when don’t I?) I’m almost 22. TWENTY TWO. Yes, I know, it’s nothing in the grand scheme of things, but I’ve been on this bloody planet for 22 years, […]

Things to Do if you Have a Pain in the Arse Boyfriend

Now before I start this, I want to make one thing clear: my boyfriend is wonderful, he doesn’t have a bad bone in his body and essentially I don’t actually have a bad word to say about him. There is just one thing that really grinds my gears; his beloved gaming PC. Very seldom would […]
