Technicolour (Poetic prose by Lauren Curr)

In a world where all looks scare her, eyes meet. There's a flash of technicolour, standing out, in a world usually seen in black and white vision.

Christmas 2017 for me: everything from veganism to working in retail

Gosh. Christmas is over. It's been a chaotic blur of working, sleeping, many cups of coffee and spending unrealistic amounts on my loved ones. But so what? It's Christmas! The New Year is heading our way and it won't be long until retailers stock up on their next occasion's merchandise (Valentines comes to mind). Time… Continue reading Christmas 2017 for me: everything from veganism to working in retail
