Everyone take a deep breath. January is nearly over. What feels like the longest, most dreaded month of the year, is very nearly over. No offence to anyone who loves January - but what are you thinking? The dreary weather, the post-Christmas come-down, the heavy colds and returning to work. The end of social events … Continue reading Beating the January Blues
I love magazines. In particular, I love women's magazines - I buy Glamour and Cosmopolitan religiously, every month. But magazines, and women's magazines in particular, often get a bad reputation for being shallow, full of rubbish and for pushing unrealistic beauty standards on women. I'm here to tell you that this isn't always true. I might be a journalism … Continue reading Women’s Magazines
I'll skip past Christmas because I'm sure everyone is tired of the old 'how were the holidays' questions by now! But this is my first blog post of the year, so Happy New Year and I hope the first week on 2017 was good to all of you! I've got some exciting plans during March, April and May … Continue reading Hello 2017!
Body image is a subjective topic. What one person thinks is an unattractive aspect of themselves, may be another person's favourite thing. But, no matter what other people may think, it all comes down to what you think about yourself and this is the first hurdle to overcome. A positive mindset I can't say I've ever been truly happy … Continue reading Body Image
The countdown is on. In less than a week I am turning 21. I'll be an official adult, allowed to drink in America and rent a car in Greece. I'll have finished university, had my first graduate job interview and voted for the first time. (I'm also moving back home but we can overlook this … Continue reading Advice for the younger me
Just a quick one, so ask all of you readers to take my quick survey! It's market research for a magazine I am creating as a final project for one of my university modules. (You don't have to have been on a gap year to do the survey!) It would be an immense help if … Continue reading Gap Years
2016 has so far been super busy - I've had a number of assessed news days, one of the last university essays I'll ever have to write, and two magazine to make. A few months ago, we decided a nice trip to Amsterdam over Easter would be a nice little break from all of this work, … Continue reading Amsterdam
So this is a post about feminism... how many of you have lost interest already? I bet there's a whole bunch of people who won't have even read this far. Why? Because you aren't a feminist? Because you don't agree with the movement? Because you think it's been done and everything is fine and dandy … Continue reading I’m a Feminist
New year, new... whatever. I'm taking it back to 2015 and talking about Tinder. I, like the rest of the world, thought I'd try out the dating app last year. I spent several months on it and there were many things I noticed (although nothing that juicy to report, sorry)! Pets - If you have a dog, or a … Continue reading My Time on Tinder
My blog has been awfully quiet lately, I'm sorry! It's been a horribly busy lead up to Christmas and I've been jam-packed with university assignments, a work placement, Harry Potter Society (now featuring Quidditch), preparing for Christmas and making a start to my dissertation! Yes, I have now decided on a dissertation idea and I've … Continue reading Merry Christmas!
