Samira was last to be coupled up on Love Island and Black Twitter has a lot of ~feelings~

Hi, hello. So yesterday the hugely popular reality TV show Love Island returned to our screens and everyone was watching it with a kind of fascinated disdain. It is a bit like watching animals mate in a zoo, tbh. Everyone was on tenterhooks watching the Islanders get matched up, and poor Samira was the last…

This website sells wigs for £7 and they’re actually hella fire

THIS IS NOT A DRILL  I love changing my look up with wigs, but I can also barely afford to pay my phone bill, so my options are kinda limited. That's until a friend told me about Wish which let me tell you, is a wig-lover's goldmine. A bit like a millennial's Ebay, Wish is…

On Mothers’ Day

  WALKING past the throngs of Mothers' Day cards and gifts in the supermarket last week, my mood changed in an instant. I began to feel physically sick, and my brothers and I quickly cut our conversation short and cast our heads to the floor, in acknowledgement of the fact that this will be the first…

Oyster

From what I recall from my American literature classes, which should be noted, is not a great deal, Edgar Allan Poe was a big fan of people watching (and cutting out people’s hearts and storing them under the floorboards, but I suppose no one is perfect). Staring out the window on the number 12 bus…

Pisces

  ACT IV, SCENE 7 (The muddy brook near our house) THE comfort she enfolds me with smells like stale wine But I breathe it in anyway   When I answer the phone, I sound like my mother’s “hello, speaking” And I wish the similarities ended there   Our personalities are addictive in the sense…

Family Feud

I’m not tired, I’m just disappointed. Fuck you for thinking I’d be there for you no matter what Did you think I wouldn’t notice one hand reaching to stab me in the back with the razor sharp dagger I got you for your birthday? Whilst the other hand caressed my shoulder Dressed in white You…
