People Don't Know How To Vote... & Then Complain About It.

Saturday, 10 June 2017

Hung Parliament was always an option, regardless of whether it was on the ballot paper or not. If you didn't consider this when you put your vote in that box, you made a big mistake.

The Dress of Unrequited Love

Saturday, 22 April 2017
Disclaimer: I'm wearing colour in this post don't be alarmed though I'm fine.

So I bought this dress from Miss Selfridge - the campaign model looked like a majestic unicorn in the photos wearing this. Unfortunately I was less majestic unicorn, more shrink-wrapped sausage roll but I did my best to look majestic in these photos so it was worth sharing.

That Time Easyjet Ruined My Life

Sunday, 26 March 2017
Img Link. Because, *spoiler* I wasn't on the flight

I am a seasoned flyer. I fly roughly twice a year, and would label Scotland as my specialty after going to university there. I've got it nailed. I know the comfiest position to fall asleep in, where on the plane the best seats are for getting your food first and I shake my head disparagingly at the security guards whens someone tries to get through with a brand new bottle of Miss Dior in their hand luggage. I am a veteran flyer. Which leads me onto my story.

So, You Want To Be A Writer? Retail V Magazines

Sunday, 26 February 2017

I never thought I'd end up in the job I'm in today. I always knew I wanted to write, but I had my heart set on magazines. As a kid I used to make my own magazines out of folded A4 sheets and stickers, and as I grew older films like 13 Going on 30, Sex and the City and Devil Wears Prada only spurred me on. Some people watched Devil Wears Prada and shuddered at the thought of working for a Miranda Priestly, whereas all I could think about was how fabulous her coats and office were.  I worked so hard towards my goal, interning at all the big names I could and racking up contacts and portfolio experience for the day I graduated (in Journalism and Politics, FYI).

9 Ways To Feel CONFIDENT In The Gym

Sunday, 5 February 2017

The first time I ever went to a gym I fannied about on the treadmill for half an hour because it looked like the simplest machine before leaving and not returning for a month. I was sure everyone was staring at me while I tried to work out how the incline worked. Since then a lot has changed, and the gym is one of the only places I feel really calm, safe and relaxed. It took a lot to get here for me, so I've pulled together some tips for anyone who is in the same position as 18 year old gym-virgin Callie... 

16 things I learnt in 2016

Saturday, 28 January 2017

Okay, so January is nearly over and I finally stopped sulking about the house with the Blues and decided to reflect on 2016 and think about what I learnt. (Turns out not that much - it took forever to write this blog post. Nearly a month, if we're being picky.)

3 Bras: Rating & Slating

Sunday, 22 January 2017

The Women's March has just been. I wish I had gone, but I didn't, so instead I thought I would write a jokey blog post on different bra types to encourage the feminist feels currently circulating online. Despite this being a satirical blog post, I hope everybody really takes into account what the Women's March was all about and how important it is that we rock our sexuality and don't allow men to ever make us feel anything less than 100% equal to themselves. It feels like we've gone back 100 years by having someone like Trump elected as President, but the good news is that it can only get better from here. (Because it honestly can't get any worse.)
 Without further adieu..

20 Reasons I'm Having a Quarter Life Crisis

Sunday, 15 January 2017
Actual photo taken during July Crisis

I have been having a seriously struggle with the January Blues. I am unmotivated, lethargic, lazy, exhausted, and cba doing anything other than tanking a bottle of wine and napping. (Okay, so not that different from usual, I guess.) 

Browsing the Drafts folder of my blog and I stumbled across this post, because as it happens I was having a serious case of the January Blues back in July, except back then it was called having a Quarter-Life-Crisis. I began to delve into how I could be sure it was crisis-mode, and had some convincing arguments...
