Hi, I'm Laura. I'm 29, single and just moved to Stockholm from the UK. I spend my days doing UX, marketing and other assorted web stuff. I like cooking, rollercoasters, dinosaurs, and pretty much anything organised nicely into colour order or a good list. I also run 1796 Foods where I am trying to eat all kinds of foods that I must 'try before I die'.

I’m on a plane


Do I have to leave the box?

I also had some cute walking buddies on the final stretch back to the office

The weather is far too nice to stay indoors so I took a long lunchtime walk around Skeppsholmen


I can guarantee more than 60% of girls and women would rather be called stunning rather than sexy, beautiful rather than hot, and gorgeous rather than a turn on.

I don’t agree here. Personally I like to be called sexy, or a turn on, assuming it’s by a person and in a situation where that is appropriate. I think these can all be great compliments.

Placing a definitive higher value on those that explicitly reference your looks (stunning/beautiful/gorgeous) rather than the effect you have on another person (sexy/hot/turn on) without specifying when these words are said actually seems a little strange to me. I feel like these all have their place and which words are preferable to you depends massively on the situation, as well as your own personal tastes.

If I’ve just spent two hours getting ready for a fancy party and I’m wearing a posh dress and have my hair done up then yes, I’m probably going to want to hear that I look beautiful or stunning. But if I’m in bed with a guy then I sure as hell would rather hear how sexy and what a turn on I am.

Now I know that this is all my own personal preference, and I wouldn’t say anything otherwise and assume I was speaking on behalf of all women because honestly, that is the kind of bullshit we have to deal with from men already and we don’t need to do it to ourselves. So perhaps in these situations we should simply write what our own feelings are without feeling the need to quantify them by assuming the majority also feel the same?

Fire! Taking advantage of the awesome weather and having our first barbecue in out communal garden




we should talk more about how ‘macaroni’ in 18th century england was used to mean ‘fashionable’ because a bunch of rich young dudes went to italy and really liked the stuff there

language is weird

humans are weird

it finally makes sense

Sat waiting in the corridor as somehow managed to balls up meeting plans and got home with no keys. I was tempted to start my wine and chocolate out here.


New diagram.

This perfectly illustrates my feelings about work today. Well. Work this month.
