So there I was walking out of what I thought was the dream job, my future plans ripped apart, feeling pretty low. It is easier said than done saying, when you fall over get back up, straighten your crown and move on. I did, but getting up took a good three years.

The second hardest thing to write about. If you know me personally then you know I feel strongly about equality in all aspects in life and I will speak up about it, and I hope to raise two young people that won’t have to fight for equality, because it will exist.

Last week was big, very big. Not just for me personally, writing '2008' was not that hard, it felt good to let go of it. A blog I have been thinking about for a long time, how to say everything I wanted to say without writing a book. I felt great the past week, better...

Oh it is so heartbreaking, remember the 90s? The UK was one of the coolest things out there wasn't it?

There were the Spice Girls, Take That and Britpop. I remember coming over to the UK during my summer holidays, staying with my pen pals, thinking this is the best thin...

With another Valentines over and done with I thought I would sit down and write about a little bit about love. 


We all know we don't need one specific day to tell the another person that we love them. Pictured above is Mr F, he is probably the reason my little shop and...

So today is the day; Black Friday.

Didn't exist in the UK 10 years ago, I remember working in retail getting ready for Cyber Monday (''the day where the whole of  the UK shops online'') and hearing that we must start following this trend from the US called Black Friday...
