Time To Be Selfish

Time To Be Selfish

Life is made up of compromises. In every kind of relationship, we have to compromise one way or another: whether it’s with your partner, your friend, family members or work colleagues. It can be as minuscule as going to Pizza Express because your friend wants pizza but really you want Nando’s; or as life altering as not taking an opportunity because you would be too far away from your partner.

Quick Messy Dressy Bun Tutorial 

Quick Messy Dressy Bun Tutorial 

So I discovered this look when I was on holiday on New Years Eve; I’d gotten a little too carried away with the festivities at the beach bar and realised I had about 40 minutes to get ready for dinner. 

My hair was a mess from the beach but I didn’t have time to wash it. So I thought I need to create something that looks classy but hides how knotty my hair is. And this is the look I came up with.  Continue reading “Quick Messy Dressy Bun Tutorial “

Taking Gender Equality By Stormzy

Taking Gender Equality By Stormzy

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”

Comfort Zone: The Best and Worst Place To Be

Comfort Zone: The Best and Worst Place To Be

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?

The Rarity Of Positive Media

The Rarity Of Positive Media

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.
