Who’s That Lady?

  I hope that when you read that title, you immediately heard the above song in your head! I find myself in a very weird place in life. I’m fresh out of university, working two part time jobs, trying to plan my future. And that’s all fine, don’t get me wrong- I am thoroughly enjoying…

Current Favourites: October 2017

It’s that time once again where I tell you wonderful Internet humans what I have been loving the past wee while. As ever, I format this post a little bit differently to most folks- let me know what you think of this style! WHAT’S ON MY FACE Having two jobs has meant I’ve been stuck…

September, 2017

How is it actually October?! I think September has flared up some kind of mid, mid-life crisis in me. Or is that a quarter life crisis? WHO EVEN KNOWS?! The past month has flown in, but while it’s been a busy four weeks, there have been lots of nice little moments too. I had a…

Ber in Edinburgh: Part One!

Ah Edinburgh, how I love thee. Last year, le boyf and I spent a magical few days in Scotland’s stunning capital, and we haven’t stopped talking about it since. Seriously, we fell in love with the city, and vowed we would return someday soon. So when Chris and I realised we were working a little…

BOOK REVIEW: Everyday Sexism, by Laura Bates

Feminist. It’s become such a “bad” word, hasn’t it? You’re either praised and lifted up above all others for being liberal and awesome, or you’re branded a bra-burning nutter who ‘should get back in the kitchen lol’. There’s no middle ground, and among most people where I live, it’s seen as a dangerous, rebellious thing….

Admitting Defeat, or Taking Control?

*puts on glasses to look more serious* The past week has been a weird one, admittedly. It’s almost 8 months since I stopped getting CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) for OCD, and to be honest, life’s been pretty good. Yes, my OCD is still there, but it became small, and manageable. The ratio of bad to…

My New Sunglasses!

Hi guys! I had the same, ratty old pair of sunglasses from Topshop for a while- they served me well while travelling around Budapest, Barcelona and Stockholm, but they were kind of falling apart. In fact, there were two main problems I could find with them: One of the legs kept falling off, and They…

Uncertainty: There’s a life beyond uni…

Cosied up in the corner of a local pub/restaurant in our town, sipping coffee (because what else does one drink in a pub?), my friend said something which really stuck with me: “This is such an exciting time in our lives!” I couldn’t help but smile and agree. Because while most people my age seem…

Tapas Night!

Hello my lovelies! I am very lucky to have some wonderful, fabulous girls in my life; back in the distillery, all of us got along so well, and even though many of us have come and gone, we all make an effort to stay in touch. My beautiful friend Rachel is heading off to Romania…
