9 questions all Irish women in their twenties desperately need an answer to

*slams fist on the table* We MUST find out.

They have lots of questions. Questions that demand answers immediately.

“No, I have no idea what happened. One minute I was just walking through Penneys, and when I came to I was at home with new jammies, five pairs of knickers and three scented candles.”

2. How come my cheap bra wants to murder me?

7. Has anyone ever actually been successful on Tinder?

If only we didn’t love swiping left so much.

8. Who decided that the packaging of tampons and pads should be so LOUD, and can I have a word with them?

9. When did I start caring about curtain fabrics and storage space?
