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…

How to Ask Someone Out

I’ve been single for a while now and I’m not ashamed to say that on occasion (even though I’m focusing on my career), I miss having someone to talk to. Although the prospect of not being in a relationship right now doesn’t scare me, any single person will tell you, it gets lonely. I’m not […] Read more…

V-Day D-Day

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…

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…

Three ways to style your blazer

So I’ve been obsessed with this blazer since the mustardy/yellow one came out a while back. Topshop’s royal blue velvet blazer is a statement to any outfit, whether you’re wearing it day or night, styled up, styled down, it’s the perfect edition to your wardrobe. Look ONE. I’ve styled this look as something I’d wear […] Read more…

This ROMEO crocodile effect cross body bag is giving me all sorts of happy feelings. I love my leather bags and especially cross bodies! The buckles, the studs and the convenient […] Read more…
