Spending a night with MADE.com


The email, when it came, was like manna from heaven. “We want to whisk you away and spend the night with you,” it said. Frankly, given how my life feels at the moment, I’d have said, “Yes please, whisk me now!” no matter who was making the offer. So it was lucky the email actually […]

Living Cheer (Demon) Cheerleader Review


A cheerleader uniform review? No, friends. I have not become a cheerleader (although, obvs, I am very much a cheerleader on the inside).

A quick survey of my family reveals our top three toaster catastrophes: Some toasters don’t deliver the perfect level of toastiness. Toast needs to be […]

10 Stupid Things Dog Owners Do.


It’s 7am. It’s 7am, and I’m standing outside in my Batman jammies (don’t judge) and a hoodie, with my arms stuck out to the sides, forming a human umbrella over the dog. What has my life come to? I mean, it made sense at the time. The puppy needed to go outside (consistency being the […]
