New Year Resolution

New Year resolutions: are they really worth it?

I decided to write this post after someone shared a post from the Telegraph with me. It comes off the back of the New Year and the influx of resolutions. I’m a heavy Facebook and Twitter user, and you can’t move for ‘new year, new you’ posts. Everyone seems to be giving things up to…

January Blues

Time to beat those January blues!

January. You can’t help but feel a little bleak at the prospect. Christmas is over, money is tight, and waistbands are even tighter. We’re back at work feeling a little fragile after two weeks of excess. We’ve all drank too much, eaten too much, and more than likely spent too much, which usually means as…

2017 New Year

Welcoming in 2017: we’ll take a cup of kindness yet

2016: Brexit. Trump. Syria. Yemen. Attacks. Cuts. The rise of fascism. All the lost icons.  Southern Rail. 2017…??? I don’t think I have ever looked forward to a new year as much as i look forward to 2017. Whilst, personally, I had a lot of highs (I got to go to six weddings!), 2016 has…

Getting an occasional dose of this British history and culture can be expensive (£8 for a ticket into York Minster, anyone?), but it…


Why preparing early for Christmas isn’t such a bad idea!

Warning: this blog contains the C word… Christmas! I’m one of those annoying people who likes to prepare for Christmas really early. I think it’s because I used to be super poor (when I was an student/actor) and I have a really big family. If I wanted to get my friends and family anything more…


Mouthy Money’s scientific guide to spending yourself happy

When clever people, like Benjamin Franklin say clever stuff like this… ‘Money has never made man happy, nor will it…’ …there is an assumption that they are speaking a higher truth. But they’re not! Something like 76% of the time, they’re communicating out of their bottoms – and this, Mr Franklin, was one of those…
