Best Years of Your Life

Best Years of Your Life

As an introvert, there is nothing I fear more than unsolicited small talk from strangers. Actually, I lie. There is nothing I fear more than unsolicited small talk from strangers on public transport at 7am when I have headphones in. I barely function well enough […]

Holding It

Holding It

On false confidence, old friends and the best pee of my life I have always been terrible at holding it. Maybe I was born with a bladder the size of a pea, or maybe its because my attention span could give a goldfish a run […]

My Parents Visited: Mexican Shakshouka

My Parents Visited: Mexican Shakshouka

I’ve got to admit, when my parents said they were coming for lunch I was completely stumped as to what to cook. How, on a student budget does one put together a passable meal for four people (my sister also joined the bandwagon) that also […]

March

March

March, what can I say? Firstly, a huge and sincere thankyou for rounding up the first quarter of the year so beautifully. From house parties  to nights spent in front of the TV and everything in between, I’m leaving March behind feeling lucky to be so […]

You know when you get so enthusiastic about an idea you go ahead and create an instagram for it and everything, but there’s only one post on it? Yep, that’s our house cooking page. (That being said, head over and chuck @__malnourished a follow because […]
