A night of decadence at Strattons 

When I was a little girl my mother always told me that she could see I had an eye for luxury. I would flick through the pages of magazines such as Cosmopolitan, Elle and Home and Garden. I would tear out the pages covered in vintage handbags, shoes, modern art and Tudor mansions and proceed…

Emily (part three)

For the last three years Emily had been working six days a week and thirteen hours a day at the diner. On her day off she was forced to spend her time attempting to clean the house after her mothers continuous substance abuse party's.  Emily's mother had been trying to take as much of her…

Emily (part two)

After a very long bus ride across town, a plea to the bus driver over incorrect fare and a nice old lady paying the last few cents she owed Emily had finally arrived at the diner for her interview. The morning sun had just begun to rise over the silhouetted tree line, frozen mist still…

Emily (part one)

The night was much darker than normal, the black so thick that even her breathing felt laboured. Ice cold air Nipping at her finger tips, mocking her for not choosing to wear gloves. She walked home slower than she usually did, however not out of choice. She felt tired tonight, each step more effort than…

Alone in a crowd 

Yes... you can feel alone while surrounded by people.  Sometimes feeling lonely while you are truly alone is better than feeling alone around others. It's a weird feeling to have, nothing feels entertaining, everything just feels, for the lack of a better word.... empty.... People will offer their company up freely, but honestly, you don't…

What they do…

The moment you meet someone you know if you are going to like them or not. Their personality will fit with yours like two matching gloves. Conversation never slows throughout the days, months or years. You will always have something to say, you will always invoke debatable topics that cause an argumentative state to erupt,…

Just you and her.

Your eyes feel heavy, the thickness of the dark hugging you tightly.  Has old man time deceived your body again? Could it only be the early hours of the morning? You lift the weight of your once dream filled head and try to reanimate yourself, you are tired.... your mouth  is like a cotton field,…

The cycles of fashion 

I have recently been thinking allot about individuality. What does it mean to be an individual? To me, being an individual is when you do what you want to do and be who want to be without compromise, but are we truly being ourselves when what we do and wear etc. is subconsciously being dictated…

I take a shot at Everyshot!

Welcome all to the first entry of my new blog section, The game box! Today I am very thankful and lucky to be able to interview a very talented and well known Twitch streamer. He is (in my opinion) the most humble, talented streamer around, so without delay, I give you Everyshot!  . Hi Vince…

Taboo

We all know the risks of cancer in nearly everything including the air we breath. Recently i have been revisiting a lot of 80s and 90s television, I noticed that through many many scenes people are smoking, seeing this made me want to smoke! I am a smoker and I am addicted to nicotine but…

“It died”

We have all been there... that moment when you are engrossed on the train while reading a blog, texting someone you have a crush on or waiting for the last few seconds to count down on a long awaited ebay bid, when suddenly.... your phone dies! Shock horror. This event can cause heart palpitations, technology…

For the love of blogs

Today I experienced how this so called event called "fate" might work. A very lovely and supportive man who goes by the Twitter name of "al nobody" asked me if I were to be interested in taking part in a sort of blog style interview. I was thrilled at the thought of this exciting endeavour,…

False advertising 

I have been debating whether to blog about this as I feel there will be a lot of mixed opinions and some people might take offence. I have decided to express my opinion anyway due to all that freedom of speech malarkey. As the world progresses through the years there are more and more ways…

The realist

Life, like the weather, can be unpredictable. One moment you could be happily drifting along like a soft cloud on a warm breeze, everything in its place and not a care in the world, when suddenly a letter may arrive containing bad news or your boss might summons you for an unwanted meeting, or maybe…

Bodies of the media

I am not completely sure when the human species decided to cultivate a new sport called "body shaming", but all I know is that allot of people take part in it and allot of people have no guilt in taking part either. Most people would assume that this "body shaming" would come from perfect men…
