About Me

Hello and welcome to my corner of the web! My name's Simŏne and I hail from North East England. I write about pretty much anything that takes my fancy; from beauty and lifestyle products to gig reviews and recipe suggestions. Don't be surprised if you stumble across the odd feminist or liberal rant too! I'm a rock music fanatic, cinema enthusiast and lover of trashy crime fiction.

Why Thirty Something OAP? Well, my friends have often said I'm "old before my time" in that I can get quite grumpy with the modern world. Don't get me wrong, I love technology and social media but I still believe there's nothing better than receiving a handwritten letter or popping out for a cup of coffee with a friend. I'm not a fan of tabloid newspapers, gossip magazines or soap operas and I think we all need to make more time to enjoy the simple things in life without being influenced by mass media.

If I lose the light of the sun, I will write by candlelight, moonlight, no light. If I lose paper and ink, I will write in blood on forgotten walls. I will write always. I will capture nights all over the world and bring them to you - Henry Rollins


  1. *waves from sunny Newcastle* I too love coffee and letter-writing/receiving. And cake, obviously.

    1. Obviously - people who don't like cake are people to be wary of ;-)
