Guess where we are?

I’m Alex. I blog about films, TV, Disney, food, books, writing, parenthood or anything else I have a considered opinion on.

Around these parts and on social, such as my Twitter and Instagram, I’m known as ‘mokuska’ (mo-KUSH-ka). I’m Greek, but no, it’s not a misspelling of ‘moussaka’*. Speaking of Instagram, my eclectic approach to fashion is catalogued in its own account. And I should also note that I lead on editorial content at Simba – but the words on this blog are my own, and should not be taken as the position of my employer.

I have a Linked In profile you’re welcome to visit, or you can email me, which is by far the best way – and certainly my preferred way – of getting in touch with me.

I’ve contributed to lovely sites like Bea Magazine The F Word and Great British Chefs on everything from food to feminism, with a dash of pop culture thrown in for good measure.

As well as being the enthusiastic mother of an endlessly entertaining daughter, I’ve never grown out of wishing I lived at Walt Disney World. (And yes of course I would love to work for The Mouse one day). We’ve already indoctrinated the Increasingly Big Child into the Small World by taking her to Disneyland Paris, which you can read all about here and whisked her off to the Florida Project in 2015, where we ate everything and survived visiting with small children. And then did it all again for Christmas 2016 because apparently we don’t like having money. Next on the agenda, if we can get the funds together: Tokyo 2019.

Otherwise I read, write, sketch, keep a brooch for every occasion, wear silly Marvel leggings, and have a mild tea problem.

Finally, a note on my comment policy: 

  • People who haven’t commented before are pre-moderated.
  • I’ll publish anything that isn’t spam or obvious trolling / hate speech. I get to decide what qualifies as the latter.
  •  I have yet to withhold publication of anything other than spam; it would be wonderful to keep it that way.

*It means “little squirrel” in Hungarian. I am not Hungarian. I am not a diminutive rodent. I leave you to enjoy these facts in the manner of your choosing.
