I'm always on the prowl for something tasty, helpful, fun and entertaining. No I don't mean Sal from Impractical Jokers, just a variety of finds on the net. As I always say, sharing is caring, unless you want my Jelly Babies - that's not ok.

An unconscious reaction to blocking out what you don't have the time or the emotional energy to deal with. It's a bit like sticking your fingers in your ear and singing 'la la la' but a bit more subtle and complicated.
Halloween. Crazy cocktails, gruesome grub and an excellent excuse to get dressed up. Magic!
It's not just the first thing to look forward to once the weather starts to turn. It's a fabulous tradition that aside from the parties, food and a reason to dress as Harley Quinn (Suicide Squad), it also brings friends, families and neighbours together to have a bit of a laugh.

The ones you see most days at the school gates, the diamond who is always ready to put the world to rights with a glass of vino (G&T, Espresso Martini and/or Pornstar Martini), those that just know you inside out whether they see you daily, weekly, monthly or yearly.
Liar liar pants on fire. Is a white lie less flammable?
The lies we tell ourselves are not always a bad thing, in fact they could help our ever worrying mind deal with an increasingly overthinking society that needs to justify every decision, be that big or small.
