    Summer Wardrobe Wishlist

    It’s officially 15 weeks until summer and I can’t believe how fast this year has gone!

I have so many great plans for summer already and of course gret plans require a great wardrobe, so today I’ll be sharing my summer wardbrobe wishlist (the key…

I’m currently attending a girls school, but because I’m in the sixth form we have around twelve boys. Over the last week, there has been rumour after rumour about “lists” that the boys have been making, rating the most attractive girls, the fattest girls and the girls in the year that they’d want to kill. The second I heard this I…

    Hi and Welcome!

    For my first blog post, I thought I would take the opportunity to introduce myself to anyone reading and tell you all a little bit about me! Hi, my name is Caitlin and I’m a 17 year old sixth form student. At the minute I’m studying English Language, Politics and Film Studies at A-Level, and I’m an aspiring journalist. My subjects and career interests are my main inspirations for starting my blog because I love to write and I’m often in need of a little political rant. I’m incredibly interested in politics and I am feminist with a lot of strong opinions on many issues, so that will be the…
