Autumn always manages to sneak up and surprise me.  I am constantly singing the praises of Summer. Waxing lyrical to anyone and everyone about how I feel more alive in the Summer. How my body is always more at ease with fewer clothes on, when...

Recently I superglued two orange pom poms onto a pair of shoes. A couple of months later I hand sewed a grey pom pom onto a woolly hat. I used to do this sort of thing all the time. Rework a dress into a skirt, make...

Having watched the documentary The Crash Reel by Lucy Walker three times in as many days I can safely say I am obsessed with it. When I sat down to watch it for the first time on Saturday I thought it would be another snowboarding video....

I’ve accidently become someone I didn’t want to be, No, not Claire from Steps but a time waster. I told myself that I would be the type who would fill every day with something creative. I wouldn’t own a TV and while away hours with...

The Man Repeller, aka Leandra Medine, is sharing her thoughts on 2012: Resolutions are as overrated as the vehicle (see: New Years Eve) that incites them. Has anyone in the history of pacts-made-with-self actually started to use the gym more regularly, or put aside tax money,...
