The Royal Feminist

Since American actress Meghan Markle married Prince Harry last weekend, there’s been this confirmation of a change in the air to the royal family’s image and I suspect not only to British women but women everywhere. The whole ceremony was about the ‘power of love’, a real metaphor the was pumped and repumped into the […] Read more…

Relationship 411: Is liking a photo a crime?

This has cropped up in many conversations with my friends in the past. Is it a crime to like another’s photo? Not necessarily, but it was definitely awkward when I saw an ex, like a photo of a girl he’d often refer to as a ‘friend’. I mean as a woman you want to feel secure […] Read more…

Can’t buy me love.

Its a Wednesday night and I’m sat in bed recovering from a near overdose from two delicious men named Ben and Jerry’s, when it suddenly dawned on me, can love really be bought? When it comes to relationships, is the ‘honey moon’ period essentially us being bought by dates, promises and promiscuous wild nights under […] Read more…

Dating: Are we Typecasting our future?

When it comes to dating, do we really have a type? I’m often caught picking the “wrong men” so my friends would say. I can’t say I don’t disagree with them. However, I can’t help but think it’s got nothing to do with a type, but more to do with luck. Is it terrible to […] Read more…

When you think about it, the word, normal means something different to someone else, and being in a […] Read more…

Although the prospect of not being in a relationship right now doesn’t scare me, any single person will tell you, it gets lonely. I’m not […] Read more…

V-Day D-Day

  I looked at the date in my diary today and suddenly thought, what the hell is one buying for oneself for Valentines day this year? Yep, if it isn’t already obvious, I’m single. Moreover, I’m single with a cherry on top. This is my second year of celebrating the dreading d-day. I think last […] Read more…

The Principals of Being a Woman

I was watching news segments and reading articles online about the Women’s March yesterday, where women, men and children were marching in aid of gender equality. Inequality is happening to everyone, but for Women’s March, times up on women getting unfair pay, rights, conversations, and behaviour just because of our gender. I couldn’t sit here and […] Read more…

What would you rather?

  What would you rather? To be single, or in a relationship? If you asked most people this question, you’d probably expect them to say, ‘in a relationship’. I can speak from experience, this is completely dependant on whether you’re with the right person at the right time for you. It would seem that a […] Read more…
