You might not be able to tell from looking at me but I’m a huge Hip Hop fan; I love the old, the new and everything in between. It’s always been a passion of mine and I follow the movements very closely. However, one thing that has always been the same is the way that some rappers portray women in a derogatory way; referring to them as objects. It has generally always been part of the hip hop culture, so I hadn’t really questioned it until recently. Continue reading “Taking Gender Equality By Stormzy”
Now, we all love being in our comfort zone, don’t we? We feel at ease, unpressurised and, you guessed it, comfortable. A prime example of our comfort zone is home: we all love coming home after a long day and getting that warm, homely, familiar feeling. But imagine if you never left?

I always start my day with 10 minutes in bed scrolling through social media and current affairs. Pretty much every day I see the same things: skinny, 6 foot models in most fashion adverts; reality TV stars posing with a protein powder and their toned mid-drifts out; and personal trainers showing off what they’ve been doing in the gym, muscles bulging. What do all these things have in common? They don’t show stretch marks. They don’t show cellulite. They don’t show any imperfections which makes us normal women feel like we shouldn’t have them.

One thing I love doing is discovering new brands. I came across Never Fully Dressed through a Facebook advert. I fell in love with so many pieces of their clothing but one in particular caught my eye. Continue reading “The Perfect Day To Night Dress”
So as you know, every month I post clothes that I’ve found that hide certain insecurities and I go into detail about the fit – and of course, say where they’re from!
The first one is this gorgeous, velvet, snake print jumpsuit from River Island. I have always been weary of jumpsuits because they don’t leave much room to hide any lumps and bumps you might want to. Continue reading “SophistaFit’s Of July”
I went to see Dunkirk at the cinema over the weekend and it really put a few things into perspective for me. First off, what a powerful film. If you haven’t seen it, it really is something that I think everyone should see. The realness and raw emotion it portrays is something like I’ve never seen. When you see what those men went through, it really does make your own problems looks incredibly insignificant. Continue reading “Beauty Vs Brains”
I don’t know about you, but I can’t go a day without seeing these sticky, strapless, backless, self adhesive bras which enhance your cleavage with a pull string: they’ve been taking over social media in recent months. As you may have seen, I love a piece of backless clothing. In the past, I used silicon nipple covers to wear them, but this doesn’t give the girls the boost I’d like. With holidays booked and several backless items packed, I looked into the bra of the moment. Continue reading “The Best Bra For Backless”
