Happy Easter Sunday, folks! Hope you are having a nice day with family or at the very least stuffing your face with chocolate. As I said in last months tour, I am more masculine than I am feminine which is just something that I have accepted about myself. Growing up I tended to side towards boy […]

After a lackluster weekend one performance, Kid Cudi brought out the big guns — or gun, singular — for his weekend two set. Everyone’s problematic fave Kanye West made a “surprise” appearance at the very start of Cudi’s closing Sahara tent set, riling up the crowd with an opening performance of “Father Stretch My Hands, […]

Wow, its been a while since I made a playlist to read alongside! Maybe its because I have Spotify now and other people do it for me? Anyway, I jumped on the Sarah J Maas train pretty hard in the past few years, I am a five books into Throne of Glass and I completed  […]

When we are young we cannot imagine that there is bad in the world, and so we love things wholeheartedly.

In a turn of events as shocking as whatever bile has recently spewed from Donald Trump’s mouth, an upper class white man has recently replaced Elizabeth Fry on the English £5 bank note. So who has received the honour of replacing a social activist and prison reformer? Surely a fellow philanthropist would be most appropriate? […]

Redesigning My Best Self

It’s a funny thing, if you had told me a year ago that I would be writing and publishing my memoirs for all and sundry to read on the internet I would have likely scoffed.  Don’t get me wrong, I had thought about writing a blog long before I actually got round to doing it.  It […]
