You’re Not Alone: 30/31 Days of Blogging Challenge

When I was 11, I had my first holiday romance. It was beyond cheesy, but for two weeks we were the best of friends. We would hold hands around the resort and would push each other in the pool. In the evening, we played snooker and sipped on fruit juice mocktails. Then, at the end… Continue reading You’re Not Alone: 30/31 Days of Blogging Challenge

Reading Forgotten Words: 29/31 Days of Blogging Challenge

I have a box. Both virtual and hidden somewhere in my room. The box is filled with old pieces of paper, notebooks, and scrap clippings from magazines. Each bit of paper has something written on it, usually an idea for a story or a poem. Sometimes it is a piece of work I plan to… Continue reading Reading Forgotten Words: 29/31 Days of Blogging Challenge

Flash Fiction: 28/31 Days of Blogging Challenge

Flash fiction competitions are everywhere. I see people posting about them on Twitter and many magazines offer the chance to tell a story in a set number of words. Sometimes flash fiction can be 2000 words and sometimes it can be 200, I've even seen ones as little as 10 words! I often think that… Continue reading Flash Fiction: 28/31 Days of Blogging Challenge

Dreamgirls West End Review: 27/31 Days of Blogging Challenge

Dreamgirls tells the tale of 3 black women, powerfully-voiced Effie, Gorgeous Deena, and the youngest, sassy little Lorrell, all desperate to break into the music business during the 1960's. The story is very similar to the that of Diana Ross and The Supremes. If you’re unfamiliar with the show, Dreamgirls began life as a Broadway musical… Continue reading Dreamgirls West End Review: 27/31 Days of Blogging Challenge

What Does My Future Hold?: 26/31 Days of Blogging Challenge

I was one of those girls. With a scrapbook of big white weddings, huge homes with miles of land, baby pictures surrounded by some of my favourite names. I would start dating a guy and it was almost like a countdown of how long I could last before asking them about their opinions on getting… Continue reading What Does My Future Hold?: 26/31 Days of Blogging Challenge

Girls Get Pink Shoes: 24/31 Days of Blogging Challenge

The past few days at the gym haven't been very successful. My shoes were pinching at the toes and rubbing at my heel. After 10 minutes on the crosstrainer, my feet couldn't take it anymore and I had to skip the cardio to give myself a break. My trainers were just cheap things I had… Continue reading Girls Get Pink Shoes: 24/31 Days of Blogging Challenge

The Monster Under The Bed: 23/31 Days of Blogging Challenge

I gripped the edge of the duvet and pulled it up around my face. My ears strained, listening out for the noise that had woken me up, but all I could hear was the pounding of my heart as the blood raced through my body. A shaky breath rattled through my throat before I clamped my… Continue reading The Monster Under The Bed: 23/31 Days of Blogging Challenge

Sending Yourself A Postcard: 22/31 Days of Blogging Challenge

    While I was in Denmark, one of the girls I met told me that every time she goes somewhere new, she sends herself a postcard. I admit that I laughed at the idea at first, I thought it was just a cheesy way of giving yourself mail. She explained that sometimes when she… Continue reading Sending Yourself A Postcard: 22/31 Days of Blogging Challenge
