    Teach Teens About Consent

    I’m seventeen years old, and three of my closest friends have been sexually assaulted, I’ve heard stories of dozens of other girls in my year who have also been sexually assaulted and I do not know a single girl my age who hasn’t been sexually harassed. These things seem to be so normalised growing up as a teenage girl, with rumours circulating about the girl who was drunkenly pressured into giving someone a blowjob, or even laughing about the time that someone shouted ‘big tits’ at you in the street. So normalised that we overlook how deeply flawed a society that accepts these things to be almost a ‘rite of…

    5 Everyday Make-Up Bag Must Haves

    When it comes to makeup I’m definitely a beginner with a lot to learn, usually when going out with friends my face is passed around the group so that they can do my eye makeup and contouring (and fix whatever mistakes that I’ve made along the way). However, when it comes to a simple, classic, everyday makeup look I like to think that I’m a bit more skilled and experienced. I’ve been wearing makeup since I was around 11 so I’ve been through my fair share of bad face days, patchy foundation, dodgy eyebrows and spider leg mascara, but over the years I’ve learnt a lot and more importantly I’ve…

    Sunshine Blogger Award

    I am so so excited and thankful to have been nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award! I’m incredibly grateful to the amazing Naomi, Inching Forward, for nominating me, especially as I’m so new to blogging, it means a lot to me. Naomi’s blog is insightful and interesting and I especially love her political posts so it really is an honour to be nominated for this award by her. The Questions: 1) Describe a family member who you really connect with. My amazingly strong aunt, Ali, she’s the funniest and most sarcastic person I know and probably the family member I connect with the most because we have similar interests and…

    A Journey to Self Improvement

    It’s currently my seventeenth year on earth, meaning that I’ve celebrated the new year seventeen times, and those that I can remember (for the first few I was too young to recall and for the last few I’ve been to0 drunk, oops) have all been relatively the same: the fireworks go off, everyone’s cheering and it’s a pretty happy time. So why is the next day so different? On January 1st every year, pretty much everybody I know (including myself) makes the same resolution; to lose weight. It seems as though January is a time to tear ourselves down and try anything no matter what to fix everything that’s wrong…

    How to Achieve YOUR Ideal Body

    Everyone and every body is completely different, and there are so many different health and fitness goals that different people might want to achieve. Throughout my whole life I’ve struggled with being overweight, and I recently began to feel it impacting upon my health, so in January I decided to stop trying a different fad or restrictive diet every week ¬†and finally get educated on how to achieve my goal of becoming a healthy weight and getting more toned through a lifestyle change, rather than a dangerous diet. Since then I’ve lost some weight and learned a LOT about health and fitness, and most importantly I’ve really enjoyed doing it.…
