Well well well, it’s that time of year again my friends. It feels like just yesterday I was writing last year’s New Year post, where I talked about resolutions and why I think they’re a load of BS Continue reading
It’s that time of year. There’s Christmas tunes blaring from every shop, café and establishment you walk past; there’s beautiful lights and decorations everywhere you go; it’s a time of gratitude and happiness, where everyone is jolly and festive, and yet you feel… sad? Continue reading
The question of ‘ who you are ‘ is one which most of us will spend our lives trying to answer, and if you’re reading this because you think there’s going to be a quiz at the end that will help you find out, I’m afraid you’re going to be disappointed. You see, I don’t have the answer for you. I spent a long, long time questioning who I was, running around trying to figure it out, wondering why I felt this conflict inside that I couldn’t seem to settle, and it was in this battle that I found my answer. Whether or not it’s the same answer for you, I’m not sure. I guess you can tell me at the end of this blog. Continue reading
“It’s so unfair. Nice guys always finish last.”
We’ve all heard it before: the idea that guys who are kind and treat a girl well never actually get the girl. They lose her to the “bad” guy who doesn’t treat her right and cheats on her and is just an all-round asshole blah blah blah.

Six months ago, I sat tucked up in my warm bed at my mother’s house, writing The Next Chapter and feeling torn. Unsettled. Excited, but scared. So wanting to leave, but so wanting to stay. It was the night before I was flying to Mallorca, where I was going to spend six months working as part of my degree.
Fast forward six months and here I am: Palma airport, waiting to board my flight back to Scotland. Feeling… exactly the same. Feeling torn. Unsettled. Excited, but scared. So wanting to leave, but so wanting to stay.
This, Bon, is the price you pay for living a life of adventure. Continue reading
When you’re young, you’ll spend your days feeling like you’re not enough.
Not funny enough.
Not pretty enough.
Not smart or creative or different enough. Continue reading
Did you ever see those articles like “HERE’S WHAT THE MOST SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE DO EVERY MORNING” or “TOP 10 HABITS OF THE RICHEST PEOPLE IN THE WORLD”, as if by doing what these people do, or by taking on their habits, we too will become “successful” and “rich”. Continue reading
“You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.”

You’ve probably heard this before, right?
Good, it’s a great quote.
“Why are you not drinking? You’re so boring!”
“Go on, just have one.”
“But if you don’t drink… What do you do??”
Sound familiar? Continue reading
