Week That Was (Jan 15 – Jan 21)

After a very busy and stressful few weeks, my life seems to fiiiinally be calming down. Not that I mind the busy busy-ness (because it leads me to work events on boats and running into Novak Djokovic in my hotel on work trips), but I have needed some proper hardcore downtime. Which I have had in spades this weekend. In fact, today I spent about an hour giving myself a home version facial (clay mask that I left on 20 minutes too long + organic cloth coconut face mask + ultra hydrating moisturiser + smaller pores I HOPE), plus watching all of…

RHOBH Recap: Dorit Still Sucks Part 805

Okay, full disclosure: I had a work event yesterday afternoon following a very Important presentation that I was very stressed and anxious about which ended up going very well. So after the work event, I decided to kick on at some after-after-work drinks. I thought I deserved to celebrate, so I did. There was soooo much build up to this dumb presentation in my tense little mind that I needed to kinda let loose. And by that I mean my head hit the pillow at 3am and I set my alarm for 6:15. It was a very…

Week That Was (Jan 8 – Jan 14)

Aiight, got a lightning-fast speed round of updates for this week. I am in Melbourne for work and a bit exhausted and catching up on sleep from this massive week. I love Melbourne and I love my job but I am very sleepy (pretty much at all times) right now and what with red carpet stuffs, RHOBH recaps, tracking Hollywood’s gross men and having an actual day job – issa bit much this week. On the bright side: Novak Djokovic is staying at my hotel and just walked right past me ten minutes ago out the front…

RHOBH Recap: DINNER PARTY DRA-MA

I have my Pinot Grigio, I am exhausted, I’m half asleep and I am EXCITED. Apologies in advance for this undoubtedly messy, messy recap (for a change). What I will NOT apologise for is my giddy excitement for a new RHOBH episode. It is honestly one of my all-time favourite shows and it felt like a very long week between eps, I don’t know why. LET’S DO THIS THING. Apparently on the “previously on” Rinna was searching her house for a rat. I missed this part but honestly how APROPOS OF…

The 75th Golden Globe Awards

I mean. Where to start on these Golden Globes? There’s a lot to unpack here. A LOT. And I’m not qualified or worthy to do so, but as will come as no surprise to anybody, I had some feelings and thoughts about everything that happened. I’ve tried my best to discuss it all at length throughout the day, as much as I can, in order to make sense of all these muddled thoughts and conflicting emotions and indignant stances that I have but I’m not sure if I’ll ever get…

RHOBH Recap: Bad Guy!

Man, last week in hindsight seems a little too good to be true doesn’t it? There were some minor scuffles and re-hashing of the past, but in the end, everyone was getting on great! Even Erika and Dorit giggled together like schoolgirls! This can’t last, right? I’m torn between enjoying the happy times and craving some fireworks. I’m obviously here for the dra-ma but not if it’s at the expense of Erika like it was last year (like, abject humiliation and slut-shaming). We kick off this week…

RHOBH Recap: Everyone Has Something To Say To Rinna

Fun fact, I haven’t booked a holiday this festive season (saving $ is truly stressful and boring) BUT my delightful real life human man friends went on a holiday and let me house sit their apartment (water their plants) so I have been pretending I am on vacation AND IT IS TOTALLY WORKING. I have been swimming in the fancy pool, luxuriating in the air con and generally being a happy happy sloth. So much so that I almost completely totally forgot about the new RHOBH ep. My bad! I’m pretty sure the “afternoon cocktails&#8221…

Week That Was (Dec 19 – Dec 25)

Alrighty folks, just gonna be a quickie update from me and this will be the last Week That Was over the Christmas/New Year break (unless something craaaazy happens, which it might, as some celebs try and bury their news at times of the year such as this) BUT check back for RHOBH Recaps (if that’s your thing) (which, duh, of course it is) (and if it’s not, why isn’t it?). Also if you feel like some LOLs hope on over to my Facebook page and check out the comments on my Star Wars…

RHOBH Recap: It’s Baaaack

Oh and I am SO happy. It felt like a suuuper long time between RHOBH seasons this year and I have missed Erika Jayne like craaaaazy. I’ve been dying to see what they are ALL up to TBH, even Kyle. But not Dorit. Or PK. I still don’t like the Garbage Couple. I wonder how her feud with my bae EJ will go down this season, if at all. I wonder how LVP will grapple with someone potentially even more universally beloved than herself, whose popularity only continues to build, about to grasp her crown (I…

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Takes on Gender Roles and Stereotypes

Now I’m going to forewarn all who trespass here: my knowledge of Star Wars is L-I-M-I-T-E-D and I have only seen two of the films (Force Awakens and The Last Jedi. Okay, and the Hayden Christensen one, but don’t tell), so I’m not an expert. But after being treated to a screening of The Last Jedi last week, I realised I had a lot of thoughts. I started discussing them with a friend who’s knowledge of Star Wars is, by contrast, E-X-T-E-N…
