Equafleece Jumpers: Keeping Dogs Warm & Dry

A recent survey by Febreze discovered that Britain’s least favourite smell is that of wet dog, and I can totally understand why. Dogs are supposed to be cute and fluffy; I do not like my puppies to smell like their most recent watery adventures. If your dog likes to jump in ponds or roll around in puddles, att last there's an answer: the Equafleece jumper.Throw a warm Equafleece on your dog...

The Labels of Sexual Identity

Sexual identity is something that some people wrestle with all their lives, while others never give a second thought. When you're just like everyone else you meet, you don't feel the need to question anything. When society keeps showing you images and stories of one man and one woman, if that seems like your thing you just carry on as you are. Women are attracted to men and men desire women - simple, right? That's not always the case though.

How to Be Incredible

I have a favourite word. I say it every freaking day. 'Incredible'. Or sometimes it’s, 'incredibly'.  Everything is incredible in my eyes and if they're not incredibly good, they're incredibly bad. I've been thinking about what makes somebody incredible. I thought about the people who I considered to be that good; I thought about what qualities those who are deemed incredible tend to ...

The Benefits of Stretching

Stretching is important. Not just before exercise, stretching is meant for every day. When you wake up and before you go to bed. Stretching has revolutionised the way my body feels. I suffer with creaky bones. My joints click and it’s quite often that I can’t stand up tall in the mornings. I’m basically a 23-year-old in a 72-year-old’s body. I started looking into ways to fix this: I did some googling and decided that I’d try stretching as a way to ...

Sexual Freedom Day for Disabled People

With the London 2012 Paralympic Games getting under way this week, disability is more visible than ever before. When we look at these fantastically fit athletes though, we only see the tip of the iceberg. Many people living with a disability do not have that level of physical or economic freedom. Many of them find day-to-day live very difficult indeed, and that includes their...

Be More Swedish With Rekorderlig's Swedish School

Does anyone else play the dumb game where they pick the nationality that they’d most prefer to be? Until earlier this year, my answer was always French. And yes, it would involve wearing a Breton top whilst riding a bike with French Bulldog in the basket. That was until I discovered Rekorderlig’s Swedish School/Svenska Skolan and being French suddenly seemed far too obvious.

The 5 Habits of Highly Negative People

Nobody wishes that they were more pessimistic. Or that they complained more. Or that they had a less exciting life. We tend to wish to be better, yet it's incredibly easy to put off actually working on it. Once a habit, always a habit, right? Wrong-o. The clever people of the world have discovered that it takes from 20-30 days to develop a new habit. I like to think that it takes just as little time to say goodbye to a habit. Nobody truly enjoys being a m...

The Half-Arsed Girl's Guide to Caravan Holidays

It is rare that I find myself agreeing with Jeremy Clarkson on anything. But I will grudgingly accept that the man speaks the truth on the matter of caravans. They are dreadful. As I type, I am sat in what can only be described as a glorified tin can on wheels. The rain is pounding down and my husband and brother-in-law are studiously avoiding the fact that one of them has to go and sort out the chemical toilet.
