    What’s On My Netflix? // 02

    Whew! It’s been a while. Between having a sh*t time at work, sore throats and just general laziness, I have yet again neglected this blog. This year started off well, but I unexpectedly took some time off – perhaps it’s what I subconsciously needed before I started pushing out content that wasn’t that great. Anyway, I’ve been watching a lot on Netflix recently and thought I’d share some of the things I’ve been watching. Jane the Virgin Gina Rodriguez is hella problematic in real life (see here), but Jane the Virgin has always had a place in my heart and I’ve continued watching it for her character and not for…

    What’s Made Me Happy This Month

    As I write this, I am sitting in a hostel in Iceland and honestly, it still feels like a dream. I don’t think it has hit me yet that I’m on holiday, so I’ll give it a few more days. Regardless, I was meant to have this post up yesterday but as that was the day we were flying out, things also went flying out the window. Have you ever been in place where you think, nothing gets much better than this? Like when you’re eating some really good pancakes or reading a book that you can’t seem to put down? I always find that it’s the little things that…

    Mojo Shmojo

    How did we get here? Mojo is a funny thing. Sometimes I have so much of it overspills out of my pores. Sometimes I have none at all and all I want to do is lay in my room in the dark and not do anything. That’s how I’ve been feeling lately, mainly due to external forces but partly my own doing, as well.  But here I am, writing a post after what seems like a lifetime. How is everyone? What have I missed? I’ll be attempting to catch up with the blogosphere once this is posted. It’s not that I haven’t missed the blogosphere, it’s just that I got…

    What’s On My Netflix?

    I used to blog a lot about television. I remember when I used to get really excited about a new Doctor Who series coming out (I mean I still do) and would immediately have to tell everyone that reads my blog that they need to watch it when it comes out. I used to write listicles of TV shows I was currently watching. I would gush about Firefly and lament because it got cancelled after only one season (I am still devastated about that). Television is a passion of mine. As much as I love books, I love watching television on an equal level. I turn into the biggest fangirl when it…

    New York, New York

    My flight was at 1 in the afternoon, but I left quite early to get to the airport as I had to take a bus and a train. Smooth journey to the airport, so not much to report there. Although, as a relatively small person, I did have a bit of trouble lugging around my suitcase (which was heavier than I thought it would be) and my backpack, which was loaded with God knows what. I mentioned in the post announcing that I was going to New York that the flying part of travelling is exciting. It was a bit weird for me because it was the first time I’d…

    Too Much Television?

    Before you start with me, I don’t really have an excuse for not blogging. I mean, I have posts lined up (I got nominated for the Liebster award, again, so look out for that), I just haven’t posted them up… I thought I’d take the time to blog about what I’ve been up to whilst I’ve been on this unexpected hiatus… television. If you look at my recent tweets, then you’ll see that all I ever tweet about these days is TV. It’s not an obsession, I promise. Here are my favourite picks for 2014, so far. Most are on break, at the moment, so it’ll give you plenty of…

    Word of the Day: Turnt

    Step 1: Purchase all the alcohol from your local convenience store.  I honestly mean ALL the alcohol. Cider, beer, alcopops, and tequila – basically anything you can your hands on. Drink responsibly 😉 Step 2: Stake out the perfect location to see the fireworks. This can be somewhat of a mission if you live in London. Usually they do the fireworks by the London Eye, however, this is a problem in that there are always way too many people. It can get crowded and sweaty and drunk people will probably accost you. My tip, if you live in London, is to go to Parliament Hill. You’ll be miles away from…

    Dating Conventions

    I’ve gotten to that point in my life where I’ve started to question all these so-called conventions when it comes to dating. This includes who should text first, how many days should you wait before texting/calling him, who should call first, etc. It’s all a bit ridiculous, I’ve realised. I’m a pretty impatient person, so if I just sit around waiting like I usually do then nothing will get done because we all know that guys are really, really clueless all the time sometimes. I don’t think guys realise how much they keep girls waiting and on edge. It’s annoying. I mean, really, what’s so wrong with the girl calling…

    Superstition

    I’ve always been a little superstitious. This is why I like to keep some things secret because I think that if everyone knows then they’ll jinx it. Despite this I think that that is a whole load of hooey, now. I had an interview to be a digital content intern at a business media company called UBM a couple of weeks ago. The position was to be held for 6 months and paid. I told quite a few people about this interview. Unfortunately, I didn’t get it which, because of my superstitious self, I thought was because I told too many people. However, they did give me a link to a…
