Pride(s) 2019

Last year, I went to Pride for the first time. Unfortunately, my first event was Pride In London, which I have since denounced as a result of the TERF infiltration in 2018. Another reason it's been avoided by me is the lack of accessibility partnered with busy crowds (making access harder, but also inducing anxiety).… Continue reading Pride(s) 2019

She Keeps Me Warm: A playlist for snow days

It's snowing down here in Hampshire today, and it's snowing pretty heavily, too. I made it into work this morning but was lucky to catch my train home (thank you Lush gods for letting me leave early as a precaution!). I also absolutely fought through a blizzard and trekked home on the white carpet left… Continue reading She Keeps Me Warm: A playlist for snow days

My 2018 favourites I’m carrying into the New Year

Over the years I've done a few favourites posts, subject specific and mixed. They seem to have, each time, gone down a treat, so since the end of 2018 has brought me a tonne of new things, and at that, things I love, I wanted to share the things I'm happily bringing into 2019 with… Continue reading My 2018 favourites I’m carrying into the New Year
