Miss Representation

The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any.  – Alice Walker This quote introduces the documentary Miss Representation on Netflix. The film examines the mainstream media’s depiction of women, and how this contributes to the lack of females in positions of leadership. It’s something I genuinely feel […]

My Love/Hate Relationship with Facebook

Warning… It’s Complicated. Sorry, had to make that joke. Anyway, time to talk about my all-time favourite social media platform, Facebook. YEY. That was irony btw. Cause most of the time I can’t stand Facebook and its aggressive ads, annoying videos and mostly mindless news that I just can’t effing stop consuming. I’m so glad that social […]

A Night at #IRLPanel

This week I had the pleasure of attending the brilliant #IRLPanel, the brainchild of bloggers Emma Gannon and Laura Jane Williams. The aim of their event is to bring together women from the internet for a night of meaningful conversation, self-empowerment and connection IRL (in real life for those who don’t like acronyms). Emma and Laura guided […]

Babe, bae, bbz & other Terms of Endearment

“Alright my divas!!!” trilled the aerobics instructor in a broad East London accent. I instantly cringed and thought this was a mistake. I don’t, and most likely never will, identify as being a “diva” in either the positive or negative connotation. I told myself to just get through the exercise class with as little awkwardness as possible and […]

I didn’t expect to write this kind of post, but ever since the horrific Paris attacks happened last month I feel like there has been a huge shift towards thinking and talking about fear. Understandably, we’re scared. I’ve heard first and second-hand accounts of people not going out at night, not taking public transport and even […]

My Autumn/Winter Wish List

If I see the words ‘pumpkin spice latte’ on the internet one more time I swear I might do my own version of this EPIC rant. The seasons are changing once again, and I’m in that confused stage of having to start wearing different clothes, and realising I hate all of my winter stuff. Factored in […]

Interview with the Comparison Coach, Lucy Sheridan

Anybody who tells you that they’ve never compared themselves to other people is lying. LYING, I tell you! We’ve all been there, whether it’s the beautiful holiday photos, or the excitable new job Facebook status, or your colleague’s amazing opportunity that you feel you deserved more.
