What Scotland have Taught Me About Life

As I stepped off the platform at Edinburgh Waverley, Drake’s voice in my ears singing, “trips to wherever feels right, doin’ it all just to feel things”, crowds of busy feet scrambled towards the exit sign- all excited and tender-footed as I felt arriving in a new country that was my ‘places to visit’ list. I […] Read more…

Its Not Hollywood, Its a Man’s World

Let’s face it, it’s not Hollywood, it’s because it’s a man’s world that women directors are a shock to the media’s system. Recently, S.J. Clarkson was announced to direct the upcoming untitled Star Trek sequel movie and I couldn’t help but feel like the news was more of an ‘oh, wow’ than a ‘this seems […] Read more…

The Royal Feminist

Since American actress Meghan Markle married Prince Harry last weekend, there’s been this confirmation of a change in the air to the royal family’s image and I suspect not only to British women but women everywhere. The whole ceremony was about the ‘power of love’, a real metaphor the was pumped and repumped into the […] Read more…

Fresh out of Uni, Fresh Out of Ideas

It must have been a week ago, I was sitting in my final e-Publishing class when my tutor asked the class, “name one thing you’ve learned from e-publishing.” I looked around at the quite frankly gormless faces surrounding me when I threw my arm up in the air and said, I don’t know about anyone else […] Read more…

Fresh out of Uni, Fresh out of Ideas

It must have been a week ago, I was sitting in my final e-Publishing class when my tutor asked the class, “name one thing you’ve learned from e-publishing.” I looked around at the quite frankly rows of gormless faces when I threw my arm up in the air and said, I don’t know about anyone else […] Read more…

How to Be Single

I think out of all of the romantic comedies I’ve snuggled up to and the relationships I’ve been in, at the age I am right now I feel the happiest I’ve ever felt being perfectly alone and that’s down to one thing – knowing myself, and I don’t think you can do that in a […] Read more…

The Demand for something Real: Love

This week I watch the romantic tear-jerker, ‘Midnight Sun’, about a teenage girl with a rare genetic disease who falls in love in a bittersweet story that left me trying to hold back tears throughout. I think when it comes to love, you’ll do just about anything for happiness. Less Bonnie and Clyde though, and more […] Read more…

Respecting The Self

There are many things I regret, especially within relationships. I think when it comes down to it, you have to swop regret for respect somewhere down the line otherwise, you’ll end up choking on your own fears. For me, the idea that I haven’t learned from my own mistakes is something that challenges me every […] Read more…

I want to be Health with you

I think for students, your third year is one of the most important times in your life and one of the main things you need to get right is your health. Contraception like men, I’ve so far always picked the wrong one. From acne to feeling anxious, I’ve had the brunt of it and after […] Read more…

Relationship 411: Is liking a photo a crime?

This has cropped up in many conversations with my friends in the past. Is it a crime to like another’s photo? Not necessarily, but it was definitely awkward when I saw an ex, like a photo of a girl he’d often refer to as a ‘friend’. I mean as a woman you want to feel secure […] Read more…
