Fronts And Masks: Actually Getting To Know Those Closest To You

When I was younger, I had this weird desire to go to a masked ball. I’d seen them on TV, teenage romcoms (Cinderella story…) and had completely romanticised the idea of disguising myself and becoming someone else for the evening. It’s so strange how much covering just a few inches of skin around the eyes…

All Walks Of Life

We take our first steps between the ages of 9 -12 months, the soft pads of our tiny feet supporting what little weight we have until we fall down onto fleshy palms, curious, eyes wide.

The Year Of The Career: A 2018 Recap

So a few blogs back I spoke about goal setting and as always I will preach the benefits of setting and completing goals to high heaven because I just think there’s no better feeling than achievement. Striving forwards something gives you purpose, worth, and you should do it for no other reason than the fact…

A Reminder For Your Wallet For When You’re 60

In a world that’s constantly changing every second is different from the last, leaving very little time to adjust in between transitions. The earth is constantly turning, the wind changes direction with every breath and time melts down into a puddle that we can view but not touch. Life is broken down into segments and…
