übermensch.

Recently, I suppose, I have quite a public breakdown on social media. A lot of my posts have been quite blatant and potentially quite catty, but I suppose that is to be expected when someone you love, and thought would be the one tells you that they can’t be with you anymore. It is what…

Hygge Bath.

Hygge is attributed as being for the individual and being for a group, although the latter is possibly overlooked with people trying to capture a sense of comfort wrapped up in knits with just one other person. It is, however, still vastly open to interpretation because of the lack of direct translation, but it’s worth…

When I Came Out.

I was asked on World Coming Out Day if I had written a post about it, but I hadn’t. This is a story I often don’t choose to tell, because to me, whilst it wasn’t the worst story I’ve heard, it’s one that really affected me at an age when I had put my faith…

Layer Up.

It’s definitely reached that time of the year when one reaches for the knitwear before anything else, and that to me, is bliss. I am far more comfortable wrapped up in thick layers of wool than strolling around in t-shirts and shorts. To me, Autumn and Winter are the better month, because it’s acceptable to…

Fun Fair!

Every year, for the last 700+ years, Hull has experienced something quite astounding. For 10 days we get Europe’s biggest travelling fair stop off in our city, and it’s quite the event. Everyone knows that when it gets to September, before Halloween hits us, we get the fair, and it’s what we all look forward…

Scream!

I’ve just come off the back of two night shifts at work, which to some, probably doesn’t seem a lot, and to me, it really isn’t. I worked for 18 months on the night shift on my old job, but I am definitely no longer equipped for it. The problem lies completely with my mental…

Lord of Misrule.

The great thing about Lush, is that sometimes, they get it right, and bring back the right products year after year. Unfortunately, they sometimes get it wrong and don’t bring back things like Glögg or Grass but I’m slowly learning to forgive them. Lord of Misrule comes in a few guises, from this shower cream…

Interior Three: Autumn Lounge.

Some people would argue that it’s not necessary to change the way you lay out your home dependent on the seasons, but I’d argue that it’s something people should consider. You see, you decorate a room, place objects around the place and you get used to them being there. It soon grows tiresome, and so…
