When Will The Summer Arrive?! :(

If you find yourself clutching onto a hot water bottle as if it were a life-saving hand at the top of a cliff which had your death sealed on it. Then you must only be in Northern Ireland in the height of its scorching summer at 14 degrees Celsius (on a good day).   YesContinue reading “When Will The Summer Arrive?! :(“

Poem – ‘A’ Is For Attraction

Enveloped in an aura of eternal amor. Any armour I adorned, Has been undone, it has been torn.    Most magnetic is the mystery. My mind is mute from misery, As my heart mends from the lover before.   ‘A’ is for attraction, The feeling of acceptance, Of an emotion more alien and more raw.Continue reading “Poem – ‘A’ Is For Attraction”

Poem: Timeless Beauty

Timeless beauty. What a contradiction. Will you still love me, When my hair loses thickness? When my skin starts to wrinkle? When my youth is but memory in the distance?   Time. It’s bittersweet. Cruel to the appearance. Yet kind to the mind. Stripping away my pride in my looks, To expose an endearment forContinue reading “Poem: Timeless Beauty”

Is Talent Subpar To Appearance?

“As a woman you are constantly fighting against only being valued for your looks, because it becomes a very tenuous thing, to be defined by the gaze of others. And beauty is, by definition, ephemeral: it’s a thing you can’t trap in time. It’s a butterfly: it lives for a second. So to make aContinue reading “Is Talent Subpar To Appearance?”

Summer Fashion

I’m not sure if you’d agree but it seems that we all dress better when the sun is out. Be it through using pops of colour to more extravagant patterns, in my view the sun does more than simply brighten up mood, it brightens up our wardrobes. Below are some looks I resort to inContinue reading “Summer Fashion”

Poem: Time

  Time. Moving passed like  Dew dripping from the leaves of The waxiest cuticles. My hands, Gnarled, close tight, Around the memories, Uprooted by those of time.   Time, A spectre of the night, Time, invisible to the eye Of even the most profound inspectors.  I suspect. Expecting time to wait for, Any man. IsContinue reading “Poem: Time”

My Face

I feel like today is one of those days were my face refuses to show any sort of expression, similar to what I can only assume the lovechild of an over-botoxed barbie and a saddened clown would sport had they just been given the news that their goldfish bubbles just died.   Yes, my faceContinue reading “My Face”

The Most Bizarre Home Remedies

Currently I have this massive blind pimple on my forehead that could rival any set of antlers on a prime young stag. Ofcourse this is the week I have work experience with a nice little editorial name and an interview gig at the weekend. So no better time for acne to make an unwanted appearanceContinue reading “The Most Bizarre Home Remedies”

Poem: A December Day

A December Day The air is crisp, cold and clean. My breath sparkles in its grasp like fairydust. I feel like a fairytale’s dragon.   The darkness cloaks the clouds, Choking out any lasting glimmers of light, As the sun sets low in the Winter sky.   The trees look fragile. Their vulnerability exposed, ByContinue reading “Poem: A December Day”

Can you really judge a book by its cover?

When your mother use to tell you to put on your ‘Sunday best’, was that really for God or for the fellow church dwellers? Time and time again I have been proven wrong, I look at someone thinking ‘oh they’ll be friendly’ and instead I’m met with a look as if they’ve been sucking lemonsContinue reading “Can you really judge a book by its cover?”

Poem: A Day As Grey As Today

Have you ever experienced a day, As grey as the grey day today? You know the kind, That makes you less kind. The kind you wished would just go away?   I’ve certainly experienced a day, As grey as the grey day today It made me feel kind, To the man who reminded, Me toContinue reading “Poem: A Day As Grey As Today”
