Is Your Smartphone Ruining Your Relationship?

My name is Cynthia, and I am a self-confessed addict. I have an addiction to my smartphone. It's the first thing I look at in the morning, and the last thing at night, and I just can't function without it. So much so, that my hubby has suggested I seek...

Mistresses Will Never be the Wives, but Why Would They Want To?

(0) Comments | Posted 19 February 2014 | (00:09)

So 13th February marks a new occasion in the annual event's calendar, Mistress Day. An allocated 'special' day for wayward husbands to lavish their 'other woman' with gifts and affection, while the traditional Valentines Day is obviously spared for their devoted wives, (quite rightly-so!) Reinforcing the notion that in cupids...

Just when we thought we'd seen all manners of 'train wreck', and 'who's your daddy' dramas on Jerry Springer, Maury, or Judge Judy, along comes a new hybrid. Paternity Court is the latest courtroom TV show aired in the States and has already proved to be a huge success. Set...

Pepa, one half of the 90's rap duo, Salt n Pepa, revealed a few years ago that she once dated Will Smith back in the day. And that the only reason that she didn't pursue anything further was because he was too nice and wasn't thug enough! Considering that the...

Have You Done Your 2013 Facebook Cull Yet?

(1) Comments | Posted 2 January 2013 | (23:07)

When we were young and carefree, friendships seemed so simple. You would have your compulsory playground argument and after a good sulk you would, "make up, make up, never do it again" and all would be forgotten. Nowadays, the world of social networking has made it virtually (excuse the pun)...

What it Means to be a Working Mum Today

(3) Comments | Posted 8 June 2012 | (16:14)

Almost 21 months ago, I gave birth to my greatest inspiration, my son Corey. After a year's maternity leave (and NOT a year's holiday as hubby would have to believe) I was certain that the full-time job was not for me. So, I decided to embark on a freelance, writing...

In recent weeks the news has been dominated with reports about cyber 'trolling' or in layman's terms, abuse or harassment posted on social networking sites.

'The One That Got Away' ...To Be or Not to Be?

(0) Comments | Posted 10 February 2012 | (23:13)

Call me old fashioned but I do love a cheesy, romantic movie. Even those that don't always have the conventional, 'happy ever after' ending. There was 500 Days of Summer, where boy doesn't win back the girl of his dreams; she marries someone else. My Best Friend's Wedding where girl...

Cut Flack Some Slack!

(0) Comments | Posted 15 December 2011 | (13:56)

Eyebrows raised (sharply!) at the news of the relationship between Caroline Flack, 32, and 17-year-old singer Harry Styles and she quickly became the victim of public hatred. But with Hefner, Stringfellow and Ronnie Woods all known to date women half their age, isn't this just a case of double standards?...
