Travel Guide : Amsterdam

  For me, I don’t think anywhere will ever quite compare to how I feel when I’m in Amsterdam. This last trip was my 4th visit to the city and still there is something that draws me back for just one more weekend. However, this one was a little different, I went with the lovely…

Ritual

My sunday evening, like many of us, is to seriously cleanse my skin, face, hair and essentially prepare my body for the sacrifice (i.e. the monday morning commute). Scrape that bird’s nest hair into a bun and let’s start with stage one of the cleanse. This has got to be heavy duty and after multiple…

Evidence of [ Whatever ]

My rule for shopping when away is ‘only purchase things that you can’t find back home’. I stick to this religiously. Gasp-worthy green H&M culottes may call my name whilst I’m juiced up on holiday endorphins, but I know I could get these elsewhere. Think of the case space. THINK OF THE CASE SPACE. Recently,…

Too Much is Never Enough

It’s without a shadow of a doubt that I went into the new year feeling low. This became blindly apparent when a friend of mine shouted with glee ‘this year is my year! I’m so excited!’. Was this going to be ‘my year’? She read my facial expression and offered a ‘…aren’t you?’.

On the rare occasion I do shake hand with a stranger and breach the unspoken social quarantine, they usually comment on my rings.

M A Y

At the risk of sounding like a broken record, it’s been a busy month: Putting out 2 podcast episodes into the world, seeing the boy play his first gig with his new band (and obviously planning embarrassing merch ideas), along with copious amounts of alcohol to ‘get my life together’ and catch up with all the muppets…

The Podcast : Ep 2

This is the difficult second album, I mean, podcast episode. Our questionable judgement has lead us to think that releasing Dev’s imaginary wedding plans into the world is a good idea. Okay, so it’s not a good idea, but it’s real funny. Have a listen here : Soundcloud Have a topic you want us to…

A P R I L

April saw a shift in what I was listening to. I went by the mantra of ‘if I can’t imagine driving in the sun on the way down to the beach listening to it, it’s not going on the playlist‘ – also in conjunction with my imaginary driving licence and imaginary car. As always, I’ve…
