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…

Define…normal

Define normal in relationships. That’s been a hot topic this week. When I listen to my friend’s relationships, and when they ask me, “Is that normal?” I have to question, what is normal behaviour in a relationship? When you think about it, the word, normal means something different to someone else, and being in a […] 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.

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 SSB: Secret Single Behaviour

As I’m writing this, I’m belting out ‘Defying Gravity’ …you know what musical that is! Alright, SSB, we all do it, you’re probably doing it right now! 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…
