A love letter to… Fake Tan

Dear Fake Tan, Your existence first made its presence known back in 2006.  I was 20.  I lacked confidence in applying it myself so sought a professional to do the job for me. I was hooked after that first dabble with the orange stuff.  It transformed my appearance and improved my confidence. However, our journey together…

A love letter to… My future love

When Alex first approached me about writing a love letter, I thought it was a great idea. I got my list down to 10 choices of what I was going to write about, from records and lyrics to my love of Liverpool and even my favourite film ever, Mary Poppins. But when it came to…

A love letter to… Love

Dear Love, It’s your day! The day everyone either hates you or adores you. That is of course, Valentine’s Day. Obviously this day is a sham (it is, don’t argue) but I’m not writing this letter to love as in person to person, coupe to couple. I’m writing this to LOVE, the emotion, feeling, pure bliss that…

A Love Letter To… Makeup

Dear makeup, Some may think I am shallow for openly declaring my love for you, but I’m head over heels, and I don’t care who knows it. I started to get to know you when I was 11. I’d shaved off my eyebrows and I thought that drawing them back in with a sparkly brown…

A love letter to… Writing – Suzy Marie

When I was little, I’d spend hours kneeling on the floor of the living room, hunched over a little plastic box that was crammed full of spelling cards. I’d constantly have my nose in a book, or be writing poems and stories to regale my family with (lucky them). Yes, I was a keen little…

A love letter to… Sandy Cohen (The O.C.) – Grace Latter

  Dear Sandy Cohen,   May I just say, to get it out of the way, I truly admire and appreciate your insanely strong, quite frankly borderline staggering…brow game. I mean, c’mon. Those brows came into play long before the thick and well-maintained eyebrow hype began – the one that I am currently surfing and…

A love letter to…. It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia

  Have you ever heard so much hype about a thing only to experience it yourself and it to be really disappointing? This is what I thought I got with this show. I started it last summer. I reached up to about season 6 out of 11 before I headed away for the summer. Upon…

Halloween – A History

For the majority of those celebrating, Halloween means putting on the mask, sweets for the kids and slime coloured shots for the adults but it’s origins and history spring from ancient religion, rather than the more secular holiday we know today. You have to travel back at least two thousand years to pin point somewhat…

New York City – City Guide

  Before I reel off on my to do in NYC, I just wanted to say a few words about the city itself so as to avoid disappointment with the post. New York City is indescribable. Even the thought of this simple, cheery city guide was daunting to me because this is a city you…
