A Fun Little Serious Interview ™, Seriously

A Fun Little Serious Interview ™, Seriously

I’m starting a Fun Little Serious Interview(tm) feature here on TOAM. It’s going to serious, but fun. Like denim suits. And precocious four year old’s. You know the type. The idea is that I ask a few seriously serious (but fun) questions to the people that I find interesting. The people I want to know […]

In My Makeup Bag

In My Makeup Bag

I have LOTS of makeup. Like, about 30kg’s worth of makeup. Five years as a makeup artist in the TV industry will do that to you. Naturally, I can’t use it all, all of the time. So I have a little bag that I keep all my favourite every day products in. Here’s what’s in […]

What’s So Great About Your 20’s Anyway?

What’s So Great About Your 20’s Anyway?

You hear it all the time. People celebrating the last night/week/month/year of their twenties. Urgently and feverishly trying to cram the last few prescribed activities of a twenty-something into their lifeline. The big three-oh looming, bringing with it a whole new decade of unpredictability, challenges and experiences. The possibility that within the next five to […]

What Should We Call Social Media?

What Should We Call Social Media?

I’m Over Game Of Thrones

I’m Over Game Of Thrones

Yes. That’s right. You read right. I. Am. Over. Game Of Thrones.  Well, over watching it, at least. I might still read the books.  I know, I know. You’re probably choking on your own spit right now. “Why how?!” “But! So good it’s! Show so good! RAWR” “But! Everyone is watching! Watch it everyonepeoples!” Those […]

Happy Mother’s Day, Mom

Happy Mother’s Day, Mom

The Nicest Thing My Mom Ever Did For Me I can’t even begin to think of what the nicest thing is that my Mom has ever done for me.
