Everyday Donalds

(0) Comments | Posted 24 September 2015 | (11:02)

When I read about Donald Trump's recent comments regarding German supermodel, Heidi Klum, it resurfaced some frankly comical yet wildly offensive male behaviours I have had the honour of witnessing, so I figured, why not share them? They did.

It's been my experience to know a few pigs; haven't we...

What Women Want From a Man in Their Twenties - Versus Their Thirties

(0) Comments | Posted 14 March 2015 | (14:57)

Personally, I wouldn't want my twenties back for anything. Sure you don't have crows feet and your bottom sits naturally high without 60 squats each day, but your choices in men and lifestyle, probably won't get a look in as you embrace your thirties. When you hit the big 3-0...

Sat in a cool Mexican bar on a Saturday night, my friend's face was picture of pure horror when I told him I wasn't drinking, and I hadn't touched a drop in nearly two months. Me saying no to...

Gym Thoughts

(0) Comments | Posted 15 January 2015 | (13:08)

It's January. And like most of us, I feel like the before of a before and after makeover, with no prize on the horizon, just a narrower thigh to butt ratio. I indulged this festive season. I indulged in carbs, sugars, movie watching and red wine without an inch of...

#Awkward Social Media Moments

(0) Comments | Posted 4 December 2014 | (14:22)

I absolutely adore social media. I am an avid Tweeter and Instagramer with touches of Facebook and Pinterest on the side. What's better than connecting with your loved ones wherever they are in the world, posting a selfie when you feel good, and keeping up to date with world news,...

Things That Turn Writers Off

No one's perfect - least of all me, but I do know the difference between 'your' and 'you're' so back the fuck off. Imperfections are endearing but lazy use of the English language is not, especially for a writer....

The Plus Points to Living in SE17, Yes

(0) Comments | Posted 22 September 2014 | (18:56)

Two years ago, when I told my friends I was moving from Highgate (posh, think Kate Moss and fine furs), to Elephant and Castle (not posh, think Vicky Pollard and faux leather), they struck a look between birthing a surprise bout of piles mixed with a chronic attack of IBS....

You Know You've Been Single for Too Long When...

Signs, red flags, signals, call them what you will, but for a woman there are some undeniably worrying behaviours that tell the world and more importantly yourself that you need to get off, on someone, asap. Enough is enough. Your vagina's just something you use to pee - occasionally you...

Things We Can Learn From Lars Von Trier

(0) Comments | Posted 16 July 2014 | (17:39)

My feelings for Lars Von Trier's work run deep for many reasons. Firstly, I love fucked up movies, oh yes, the more disturbing the better; my favourite movies are probably Antichrist and The Sound of Music (a nun, turned nanny, turned singer on a mountain? fucked up genius). Having suffered...

Things You Never Think in Your Thirties

(0) Comments | Posted 5 July 2014 | (17:15)

Maybe I'm having a premature mid-life crisis and my friends aren't telling me, or maybe I'm just older and wiser, but as I walk around London town makeup free in flats and a sundress, the freedom of being in my thirties and totally non bothered about, well anything really, makes...

My Depression: The Best Thing

(0) Comments | Posted 12 May 2014 | (16:01)

I had a dark period of depression for just over two years, not that I knew it at the time. It had become the norm to feel dead behind the eyes, empty, numb and generally dire at all times. My weekends would involve a breakfast of crying followed by a...

Viva la Padding!

(0) Comments | Posted 1 May 2014 | (15:17)

I recently read an article online that asked if wearing a padded bra was lying. My initial reaction was, 'Are you kidding me?' Who has the right to say if a woman's choice of bra is creating a lie? And who are we lying to? Oh, of course - men....

My Feelings for My Underwear - Who Knew?

(0) Comments | Posted 11 April 2014 | (14:29)

Pre Christmas I decided to have a turnout in a bid to hit the New Year a fresh, and I mean business. It's all going: five unimpressive foundations that I kept 'just in case', a mini pink Filofax from 2008 - why? And a swimsuit I last wore in 2009...

The DD Debate: How Do You Feel About Your Cup Size?

(0) Comments | Posted 27 March 2014 | (11:25)

The holy grail of the bra has to be, cup size. Too much? Never enough? How do we honestly feel about the size of our wonderfully varied chests? Do you aspire to a Marilyn-esque eruption of curves? Or does your heaving chest see you day dreaming of being bra free...

'Under the Chin'

Friday night I went to the cinema to see the beautiful Scarlett Johansson play an alien seductress in 'Under the skin'. I was mesmerised not only by her stunning performance, but also by her physical form. There are many inches of flesh to love on Scarlett but for me, it...

The Importance of Sisterhood

As I am sat at Triumph HQ in London waiting to meet with an old friend and marketing guru, I am mesmerized not only by the beautiful sets of underwear adorning every corner like a wallpaper of diversity and femininity, but also by the warm and open feel from the...

The Unexpected Empowerment of an Underwear Shoot

When I got the call on a Thursday asking if I wanted to take part in a filming for Triumph's 'Women in Making' project as one of their 'real makers' the following Monday, I of course said yes. Since my last turn playing celebrity interviewer, I've been dying for a...

Valentine Valenfine!

(0) Comments | Posted 12 February 2014 | (20:26)

I LOVE Valentine's Day, but then, I pretty much love everything - apart from moody people. When I try to spread the V Day love though, often it is met with a sour face and 'Oh I HATE Valentine's day' followed by 'It's a marketing scam!' Generally these people also...

12 Years a Slave

Saturday afternoon cinema is one of my favourite things to do on a rainy day in London, and a solo trip is an extra treat. A pure self-indulgent couple of hours to myself with the luxury of no conversation; a totally selfish disconnection from the world is gift to myself...

Why I Love Kate Moss

(0) Comments | Posted 10 January 2014 | (12:40)

Permanently smoking with her hipbones shining through that Calvin Klein dress, doll face Kate was a breath of fresh air when she arrived in the early 90's. Ever since I saw her strut down the runway for Bella Freud in a black and pink fringe bikini in 1993, I was...
