Namas-cray

Annnnd just like that Valentine’s Day was almost here. (Cue all the singletons across the globe drizzing into their pint of Ben & Jerry’s – where’s Bridget Jones when you need her, hey?) Anywhoo, massive knickers and social awkwardness aside, I feel like good old V-Day has the tendency to make people a little cray……

Of Birthdays and Booty Pops…

Last week Tuesday saw me celebrating another birthday and although I only turned a (relatively) tender 24, I still felt somewhat antiquated… (Bitches be old).
