A Year of Sour Lemons

citrus lemon and lime

It’s kind of interesting how different people cope (or not) with the same thing in different ways. Everybody has a different trigger point, a different level of resilience. What one person will sail through, another will struggle with as if through sinking sands. Some people have incredible levels of energy that allow them to always […]

Being a French national in the UK in 201...

Brexit

I’m a French citizen, an EU citizen, and soon to be a really shitty bargaining chip and statistic in the Brexit negotiations, my entire life, relationships and work activity reduced to a label, supposedly so that UK citizens can get a better deal in what must be the most staggeringly fast descent into drunken decision-making […]

Internet Dating Tips for Sceptics

Internet Dating Tips

I’m never quite sure how people will react when I tell them that Badgerman and I met through ‘a mutual friend’ a.k.a. the Internet but there’s often an element of surprise and a look that says ‘Really? Internet dating?’ as if it were a really strange thing to do. If I were to take a […]

The answer to ‘baby brain’: BeetsBLU Pag

BeetsBLU PagerTag Review

I used to think that ‘baby brain’ not only was a terrible misogynistic stereotypical word that would never cross my lips but also a complete myth. It’s still a term I dislike, but unfortunately I’m one of its victims. I got pregnant and started to leave my phone on trains and lose my keys in […]

Brexit Post-Mortem

after Brexit post-mortem

I don’t even know what to say anymore! I’m laughing right now at how ludicrous the political shenanigans are becoming, but I suspect I will wake up with the doom and gloom again tomorrow, and I despair of ever feeling confident in the British government again. Never mind the Leave voters, who were the cause […]

What I’m Into – May 2016 Edition

what i'm into May 2016

What an intense month May has been! I feel like it’s just disappeared and tried to take a few bites off me as it went. Busyness and loud children will gnaw at you that way and fray you at the edges sometimes. I’m joining in with Leigh Kramer as usual for a round up of all […]

What Brexit means to a French immigrant ...

French immigrant view on brexit

A warning from me: I’m talking pretty bluntly in this post because either I was going to share my actual opinion, or I was going to be dishonest so this content is likely to be polarising and make some people uncomfortable or angry. My aim is to challenge, and I’m not an expert, it is an opinion […]

Clay Face Masks: France’s Best Kept Beau

Clay Face Masks: France’s Best Kept Beauty Secret

The market for beauty products is a lively one and brands have a tendency to make outlandish claims about their products. You could be led to believe they will one day raise the dead, if the rejuvenating powers of face creams are to be believed. A lot of the time, it’s an advertising tactic rather […]

What I’m Into – Spring 2016 Edition

What I'm into

Spring has arrived in England and with it hail, snow, thunder, lightning and bright sunshine, all in the space of a day. It’s been a while since I’ve had a chance to join in with What I’m Into. What I’m Reading I’ve actually been reading about business finance and investment appraisal techniques since mid January so I’ve […]
