7 Things I Learned About Relationships in 2014

7 Things I Learned About Relationships in 2014

2014 was a good year for me. I learned a lot about myself and others. There were some interesting lessons about relationships. You can be with the right person at the wrong time. A few years ago a friend of mine broke up with her boyfriend. After several years apart, but remaining friends, they got back together and are about to buy their…

Finally Stopped Procrastinating: Back On YouTube

Finally Stopped Procrastinating: Back On YouTube

After the wonderful catalyst that was a bloke coming in to work to motivate the team, I decided to stop procrastinating and realised that the time is now to get back to making videos. So, here is hopefully the first of many... Need to try and figure out the light though. It's still not right…

UPDATED: I Really Like You! The Carly Rae Jepsen Revival?

UPDATED: I Really Like You! The Carly Rae Jepsen Revival?

Last I heard of young Carly Rae Jepsen was that she'd happily retired on the royalties of Call Me Maybe and was residing in the same gated community as Toni Basil and Rick Astley, where Rebecca Black has a small condo too and Meghan Trainor is viewing property. If you're not getting the hint, I am implying that she is a one hit wonder…

Hungry Ghosts, OK Go – A Review

Hungry Ghosts, OK Go – A Review

Hungry Ghosts is the fourth album from Chicago band, OK Go and I love it! That could just be the end of the review right there, but that seems a little lazy. I fell in love with OK Go right from the first song of their's that I heard, Get Over It. I must have been in Sixth Form or a uni fresher when…

It’s Mardi Gras / Pancake Day

It’s Mardi Gras / Pancake Day

Happy Mardi Gras, Pancake Day or Tuesday! Whatever you're celebrating, have a wonderful day. Here in my house, we're celebrating a combination of Pancake Day and Mardi Gras. In November 2013, my best friend and I travelled to New Orleans, Louisiana as part of my 30th birthday celebrations. Here we sang karaoke at Cat's Meow, drank Hurricanes, ate PoBoys, explored the swamps, had…

Hey Mango

Hey Mango

It's midnight and I'm inadvertently launching pieces of mango around my kitchen. I love a ripe mango as much as the next person and lord knows I've been waiting for this mango and it's been waiting for me. It's traveled many, many miles on top of it's already extensive journey from it's country of origin (maybe Kenya), as through poor forward planning it has…

My Social Stance: I won’t do that!

My Social Stance: I won’t do that!

I get contacted about Social Media jobs a lot. I get contacted about Web Analytics jobs even more. Become a Web Analyst if you're struggling for employment, there are loads of jobs in that. Anyway, the Social Media roles; I tend to find that I'm having to explain how I feel about Social over and over because what each company wants from the…

Kenya Booze Haul

Kenya Booze Haul

Just back from a wonderful 2 weeks in Kenya and had to take a trip to the duty free on the way back. I know many bloggers do make up and clothes hauls, but, well, I collect booze, and I do mean collect. It's a collection because I don't drink them all at once, I do save and savour my drinks. So, what…

Tips for Duty Free Alcohol Shopping at the Airport

Tips for Duty Free Alcohol Shopping at the Airport

After a recent holiday and some recent alcohol purchases to add to my increasing collection in cocktail corner, I thought I'd drop you a few hints on buying alcohol at the airport, where you can save a fair bit of money if you're cunning. UK customs will allow you to bring back a certain amount of alcohol into the country from outside the EU…

Pomegranate & Prosecco for Christmas Morning

Pomegranate & Prosecco for Christmas Morning

I discovered this alternative to Bucks Fizz / Mimosas a few years ago when I was living with friends in Cardiff and we celebrated Christmas at many points throughout December. My housemate Paul brought this Jamie Oliver recipe to my attention and I think I've had this prosecco cocktail most years since. It's fresh, classy and not too heavy, so could be perfect…
