Meeting Caitlyn Jenner

Last night I went to hear Caitlyn Jenner discuss her new book ‘The Secrets Of My Life‘ which has received a great deal of media coverage in recent weeks. Not only do we know that it confirms Caitlyn’s complete sex transition but also Keeping Up With The Kardashians has made the world largely aware that Kris is…

There are no ends, only new beginnings

As I near the end of my time in New York, I’m left with an overwhelmingly contrasting concoction of feelings and emotions… I’m excited to reunite with friends and family at home, yet I’m truly devastated to be leaving a city that I’m more in love with now than ever before and my heart aches…

Why Carrie Bradshaw is My Idol

FASHION From Season 1, Carrie stunned me on ‘Sex and the City‘ with her sense of style and sometimes quite extrovert outfit decisions. The protagonists of all our favourite TV shows wear great clothes and inspire us with their trends, but I think it’s fair to say that nobody can do it quite like Carrie….

A Weekend of Fun Ends In A Moment Of Revelation

With just under 4 weeks to go before I return home to Manchester, after the biggest adventure of my life (so far), I have been desperately squeezing in the rest of the activities I wanted to do whilst in New York. Of course, these activities are dominated by various brunch locations across the city that I…

A Drinking Guide to NYC

Something about New York just isn’t quite complete for me, without Cosmopolitans and rooftop bars. My years of obsessing over Carrie Bradshaw in ‘Sex and The City‘ drove me to find only the most fabulous locations to enjoy a day or night of drinking with my pals in NYC! Here’s a few of the gems…

A Food Guide to NYC

Whenever I go anywhere new, I love to have an idea of the places I want to visit which is why this is going to be a first instalment of a number of guides I’ll write for people journeying to New York. Of course, we’re starting with one of the most important things you’ll need…

Behind The Scenes Of My Social Media

In a world where social media dominates our lives, we are more aware than ever of the way we come across to others. Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and Snapchat reflect all the best bits of our day to day activities – the laughs, the adventures, the nights out, the delicious foods, the fun social events. But…

New York, New Men?

I’ve never really written about men and relationships before but since coming to New York and being soaked with a bucket full of ice cold reality, I felt that now was a good a time as any to start. I want to address this dreamy myth attached to NYC, that there are sexy Mr Bigs and chivalrous Tom Hanks’…

The Inner Struggle: Does my fashion make me superficial?

I am currently living in New York, one of the most exciting fashion capitals of the world. From the beautiful, extravagant Sacks store on 5th Av to the individual, quirky vintage stores of Williamsburg where you are sure to find a one-of-a-kind statement piece, NYC is the embodiment of all my shopping fantasies. What can I…

The ‘Breast’ Controversy

Here it is folks, the picture that’s caused all the upset- the accusations of hypocrisy, the name-calling of her as an embarrassment to the feminist movement and the enraged tweets comparing Emma Watson to a page 3 glamour girl. The criticisms really began with controversial Telegraph columnist, Julia Hartley-Brewer, who tweeted this. It seems that she has taken…

The Day of Perspective

A pretty wild night out at a New York night club on Friday night left me in a very fragile condition the following morning. I awoke to be greeted by a pounding headache, blurred memory and a reflection in the mirror that made me glad that my recollection of the previous night was so impaired. Would there even be a New York…

Big Weekend in the Big Apple

It seems only fitting that when you’re in New York (one of the most non-stop, ceaseless, energetic cities in the world) your weekends should be anything but relaxing. No more lazy Saturday mornings or Sunday nights in – instead Brooklyn bar crawling, visiting celebrity hangouts, Greenwich jazz clubs and Broadway. On Saturday, I went with…
