Woohoo! My first Sunday Papers post of the year, which means it’s a meaty one.

Already, 2018 has thrown sexual harassment, racial prejudice and an unhealthy dose of Donald Trump acting a complete twat into the limelight, so I’ve tried to keep this semi-light hearted, for all our sakes.

Grab a cup of tea and dive back under your duvet for this week’s Sunday Papers.

Wouldn’t be a true Brit if I didn’t mention the weather each week, would I? But hot damn, it really did get chilly, didn’t it? I’m spending the day eating a roast dinner and planning my best friend’s hen do. Pretty perfect, if I do say so myself. If you’re tucked up under a duvet, looking to sink your teeth into some good reads, here are my top picks from the past 7 days, bundled into one.

Not Guilty

When I read that a man was found not guilty of raping his wife because he ‘didn’t know he needed consent’, it made my blood boil. In case it needs to be made abundantly clear: anything other than yes means no. Fact.

Gender Roles in the Bedroom

A funny yet truth speaking article about gender roles and threesomes.

The J.O.B

I talked this week about how important a 9-5 can be when it comes to matters of the mind. Of course, it’s all subjective, with some unable to get themselves into work, but if you can, then it might just save you.

Self Harm

When I was younger, I knew a girl who used to self-harm. It really scared me when she first showed me, but I didn’t think to question why she might be doing it. I, in all honesty, assumed it was for attention. Oh, the mind of a 13-year-old. So tragic that so many young women are doing it.

Infidelity: The Last Remaining Taboo

Cheating has been a part of my life since I was a teenager. It’s nothing new. I think most people would say the same, so why can’t we talk about it?

Teaching Kids About Consent

I don’t like the notion that teaching little ones about consent is ‘radical’. I think it’s more ‘crucial’ if you ask me.

The Big O

Female orgasms are a thing of fairytales for some women. Or perhaps most women, judging by these stats.

A Millennial Railcard

Hallelujah! The gods have finally realised we millennials are poor af and have offered up a discount card for rail travel. I only get to enjoy a year of use, though. Sob.

Transitional Styling with Megan Ellaby

Another week, another mention of Megan, my blogger of the moment. If you’re struggling to transition your wardrobe, read her advice. She’s a pro.

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday and have a good week, everyone!



The only thing I’m prepared to leave the house for of an autumnal Sunday afternoon is to either hunt down a roast or head out for a walk around Richmond Park. Other than that, it’s soft clothes, blankets, books and tea. And blogging, of course. If you’re tucked up, looking for something to read, here’s a run down of my favourite articles, videos and tit bits from the last seven days.


The most important story to come out of this week is, of course, the Weinsten stuff. Naturally, it makes me feel sick to my core, but I’m not surprised by it. Which is part of the problem, I guess. This audio gives me shivers.

Model Behaviour

Agencies have a responsibility to think carefully about who they recruit. Here’s an example of a time they didn’t.

Frightened of Having a Baby

At certain times of the month, I want a baby more than I want the perfect winter coat. Other times, the thought of having one makes me stop breathing. Glad I’m not alone.

Self Care

Looking after yourself means something different to everyone. What does it look like to you?

Generation Rent

As someone who constantly beats themselves up about not being able to buy a house, this was quietly reassuring. A nice reminder that renting has its perks and that I don’t actually want to buy a house, I just feel like I should.

When the Boyfriend’s Away

Half of me loves when I’m left to my own devices while he’s away. Until I don’t have anyone to curl up on the sofa and watch Netflix with, that is. Liz, however, loves it.

Break Ups

I’ve survived every single one with too many nights out with the girls. Not sure I agree there’s any other exit route to be fair.

The Cash Flow

I talked a little this week about money. A sticky, awkward subject that people tend to shy away from. Here’s what I think about being at a different cash flow stage to my friends.

Emma Bunton’s Interview

I’ve never seen this before, but it is not okay that bloody Baby Spice was asked such gross, not to mention irrelevant, questions by Howard Stern. Another day, another woman put in an intimidating and uncomfortable position. I’m glad this clip has resurfaced. Here’s to outing more scoundrels.

We Don’t Know Shit

In a time where we can self-publish at all times, it’s sometimes better to admit you actually know nothing.

Megan Ellaby’s Fashion Faves

I’ve always been pro-YouTube. They’re creators as much as the next person, and the stick they get is a little uncalled for. I’ve followed Megan’s blog for a few years and have recently started watching her YouTube channel and I’m addicted. Her style is second to none and I basically want to be her. If you’re not sure about YouTube, start here. It’s good.

Chloe Plumstead’s Think Pieces

I love everything about Chloe Plumstead’s blog posts. Each post is well thought out and relevant and guarantees to feed you with something valuable. Her ‘Think Pieces’ category is my absolute fave of the lot.

And that’s it for this week, I think. Hope you’re all having a chipper Sunday.
