Another Opinion on Girlboss.

Last weekend, I binge-watched the new Netflix series, Girlboss, in one day. So I guess you could say I liked it.

The show is a semi-autobiographical depiction of Sophia Amoruso’s, the real life Girlboss, entrepanerial rise of her vintage fashion brand Nasty Gal from its inception in 2006, when it was just a lowly ebay stored where she ‘flipped’ clothes. The then-23 year old Sophia just wanted to not work for anyone else anymore, and so she almost by accident became her own boss.

More Podcasts to Listen to.

More podcasts you should subscribe to
Back in August, I wrote a little post delving into my journey with podcasts called 5 Podcasts You Should Listen To, and this time I am back to tell you about some more.

I’ve really taken to this form of media. It reminds me of my childhood and early teens, when I would turn on the radio to tune into Southern FM’s daily breakfast show (any Brighton natives remember Danny and Nicky in the Morning?). Hearing the bright chirpy voices was a great start to the day. However, as I got older, I started to favour listening to music or watching YouTube.

Podcasts are great, because they give you a chance to consume something as passively or actively as you want. I not only listen to podcasts when I travel, but when I’m cooking or cleaning, before I fall asleep, or even just in my bedroom when I feel like closing my eyes for a bit and not have to endure the silent abyss.

La La Land.

This weekend, I went to see La La Land. And when I left the cinema, the feelings I held, I imagine, wereย very similar to those felt by audiences witnessing motion picture musicals for the first time back in the turn of the last millennium.

(Disclaimer: while I will indulge in fairly minor spoiler territory, I won’t be going into detail with the plot points. I loved going in to watch La La Land with fresh eyes and ears, but reading this review won’t take away the magic if you haven’t seen it yet, I promise)

5 Podcasts You Should Listen To | #LazyBlogging


Even though I’ve always been aware that podcasts exist, I didn’t start properly listening to any until about a year ago – and I’ve never looked back.

Being in a long distance relationship, I have a lot of in-between time spent travelling to and from Sheffield to where my boyfriend lives. Those three and a half hour journeys are long, and there’s only so long I can sit listening to music (though I have spent many-a train journey listening to the Hamilton cast album on repeat). Occasionally I’ll spend my time listening to an audiobook, but podcasts are definitely the best way to pass the time, in my opinion.

They’re so relaxed and conversational, and depending on how good the chemistry is between hosts/guests, it can often feel like you’re just sat chatting with a friend (in a very one-sided manner, of course). I don’t just listen to them when I’m travelling, I’ll also listen to one or two while I’m at work, or even around the house when I’m cleaning or cooking.

I thought I’d share with you all ones that I’ve been loving so far.
