We thought about time so differently growing up. We would wish our lives away waiting for that birthday party, that holiday, or that Christmas for that present. We would be wishing we were older too. Old enough to buy makeup, to vote, to buy alcohol or be able to go out and party. I always...Read More
I was reading an interesting post earlier this month about a mother who had made the decision not to buy her children anything new in 2019. She claimed they already had everything they could need for the year ahead. Her thought process had apparently stemmed from adopting the same approach for herself in 2018. A...Read More
I had the pleasure of seeing my 6-year old nephew this weekend, and although a common saying, it’s true when they say, kids say the darnedest things. He sat me down, told me to cross my legs and pray to God. I asked if he would mind going first – and while I won’t go...Read More
Christmas has always been a nostalgic time of year for me, and no doubt for many others too. It’s a time for festive cheer, family, close friends, gift buying and receiving, homemade decorations, good food and making memories that will last. It is this last point that perhaps helps in making this such a nostalgic...Read More
Sentimentality is such an evocative feeling and yet, I don’t think we truly experience it until we grow older. As children, we often lack the empathy to really appreciate memories and belongings – we may miss our favourite forgotten toy but it rarely goes deeper than a few tears before we become attached to another...Read More

Throughout my childhood, it was a phrase used much more frequently as I sat longing for the summer holidays to last just one more week, or wishing that the school disco didn’t have to end on the dot at 9pm. Looking back,...Read More
Today I woke up in my childhood bedroom for the very last time. The walls were bare, all of my possessions were boxed up and as I collected the last of my bits and pieces, ready to move out of my family home and into my very own place with my boyfriend Cam, I looked...Read More
Have you heard about the Disney X Vans collaboration due for release on June 5th? If not, why not!? When I first heard the news, my inner child screamed with joy and I knew I had to have a pair. I’m ready for the onslaught of judgement I’ll receive from friends and strangers alike, but...Read More
With the release of Cinderella just around the corner, it’s no surprise that the true subject of any Cinders related discussion is revolving around ‘the’ shoes. Overshadowed by it’s fancy footwear, the fairytale has only given us the slightest longing of a childhood spent chasing our Disney princess dreams. As now that we live in reality, we...Read More
I don’t know about you guys but I am constantly getting pestered to ‘grow up’. Whether its by society or my parents, it is constantly shoved in my face that I am pretty much not at where I’m expected to be in my life. The pressures never end. Of course it would be ideal for...Read More
