Jessica from A-Z.

Do you remember back in the Bebo/MySpace days you’d fill in all these questionnaires about yourself, and then your friends would also do it? I don’t know about you but I used to love filling them in. It makes me think twice about myself and I guess shows me what I want and what I…

Practical Ways To Relax and Destress.

Growing up is a funny thing. One minute, you’re a little wee lass – you’re young, you’re carefree and you have no responsibilities whatsoever. The next thing you know, you’re suddenly in the mist of choosing/completing degrees and dissertations, learning to deal with the aftermath of a heaving night of drinking for the very first…

Why It’s Sometimes Okay To Be Jealous?

This weekend, I went to see Mamma Mia: The Musical in the West End. As a huge, huge, huge musical geek, this is one of my favourite things to do. This post comes inspired by a particular song in the musical… well, not even song, a couple of lines. The lines? “I wasn’t jealous before…

Burger & Lobster.

Here in London, we are spoilt for choice when it comes to dining. The other week, my bestie and I had a little(ish) shopping trip in Oxford Street. After pounding the streets for a good few hours, we needed a little fuel to revitalise us. Our intention was to go to the Rainforest Rooftop Bar…

Flirting.

Flirting is not my forte. AT. ALL. I could relay countless of stories to you, demonstrating my sad inability to flirt. Let me give you a few of my personal fave examples. I wish I could go into a lot of detail but there’s a chance they might come across their blog and I don’t…

Why are Girls Jealous of Each Other?

There’s no doubt about it. Us girls are interesting and complex creatures. In a world where there’s still a lack of equality between girls and boys, and also in a world where the term ‘fuckboys’ exists, it seems beyond crazy to me that girls are tearing each other down, when the phallocentric world we live…

Freakshakes.

“What are Freakshakes?” I hear you all ask. If you haven’t heard of Freakshakes, where have you been? Because they’re all over my Instagram/Tumblr/Twitter feed. Either I constantly think about food that the internet somehow knows me and fills my feed jam packed of food and drink, or they’re not as popular as I first thought….

New Purchases.

I said that I was gonna try to update my blog much more regularly so I’m back with another post. This one is going to be short and sweet. I was going to call this post my May Favourites, but I think it might be slightly to early and I’m just too impatient waiting for…

Travel Diaries: New York, New York.

At the end of March, I had the fine privilege to travel to New York City. Now if you know me, you’ll know that it’s a life long ambition of mine to live and work in NYC. Unfortunately this time wasn’t a one way ticket but hopefully one day, it will be!! I’m currently back…

Misogyny.

I hate it when people assume or imply that a women cannot or are unable to do the same thing as men. I hate that gender pay difference is a real thing. I hate that women are deemed as second best. I hate that this is still a phallocentric world. Since doing and almost completing…

Are My Expectations Too High?

“Jess, maybe it’s about time I lowered my dating expectations. I think they might be too high and unrealistic?” A lot of my friends are single and they keep coming out with this line which makes me so sad. I disagree with that statement so much. I really don’t think you should lower what you…

Lateness.

One of my pet peeves is when people are late. I really don’t understand how people are so unorganised that they are unable to stick to a time schedule. I personally feel so guilty when I’m literally 5 minutes late, and I do apologise profusely if I ever happen to be late, so I don’t…
