V-Day D-Day

  I looked at the date in my diary today and suddenly thought, what the hell is one buying for oneself for Valentines day this year? Yep, if it isn’t already obvious, I’m single. Moreover, I’m single with a cherry on top. This is my second year of celebrating the dreading d-day. I think last […] Read more…

The Principals of Being a Woman

I was watching news segments and reading articles online about the Women’s March yesterday, where women, men and children were marching in aid of gender equality. Inequality is happening to everyone, but for Women’s March, times up on women getting unfair pay, rights, conversations, and behaviour just because of our gender. I couldn’t sit here and […] Read more…

The Art of Getting By

    I was watching a film this morning with a cup of tea in hand, Pretty in Pink I think it was, when out of nowhere I just started crying. Thank heavens no one was in the house at the time because my family are those people who don’t leave you alone until you’re […] Read more…

Why the watch is the new LBD

Even though I’m a complete born and bread village girl, I know I’ve always been a city chic at heart. I’ve always had a hankering for travel and my mum says ever since I was 5 I was packing my bag wanting to get on a plane again. Now as a fashion addict, I’m always […] Read more…

What would you rather?

  What would you rather? To be single, or in a relationship? If you asked most people this question, you’d probably expect them to say, ‘in a relationship’. I can speak from experience, this is completely dependant on whether you’re with the right person at the right time for you. It would seem that a […] Read more…

I was watching an episode from my box set of Sex and The City when Carrie spoke of a certain behaviour that I embody from time to time […] Read more…

The Age of The Powerful Woman

I came across an article in The New York Times the other day, the title read, “Powerful Hollywood Women Unveil Anti-Harassment Action Plan”. As soon as I read the title I thought, damn this is like the film, The First Wives Club! I’m glad that over 300 women (well known actresses, directors, agents, producers and […] Read more…

The Art of Being Influential

I went to see The Greatest Showman in the cinema last week and it made me think about how people become influential. Now, you can be on the right side of this and the terribly wrong, I’m sure you can silently name drop a few influential beings who embody both yin and yang. But surely, […] Read more…

Stop saying feminist start saying woman?

Since the Weinstein allegations, I’ve been thinking about what women empowerment actually means. I think feeling empowered is not just about gender rights, its about the respect you have for yourself and what this means for your career, relationships, friendships and how we have a collective responsibility to be better people. To me, feminism has […] Read more…

The Last Minuter’s Gifting Guide

As I’m writing this I can hear my brother asking me what he thinks our mum would like for Christmas. Is anyone else’s sibling always last minute with presents? Ha! I thought I’d put together a Christmas guide for the last minute peeps that don’t have time in between or after their daily routine. Well […] Read more…
