The Circle: An Almost Crude Explanation of Our Societal Future

Last Saturday night was one I spent very much at home on the sofa. Having had a busy few weeks and an... eventful Friday night out with my sister and cousin, Saturday night was for staying in. Gladly so too. I took this rare opportunity not to catch up on the first episode of this … Continue reading The Circle: An Almost Crude Explanation of Our Societal Future

‘Boy, Man Up’ – Know This, You Are Not Alone. I Understand You – I Am Just Like You…

A few weeks ago I focused on an aspect of mental health and social pressures faced by girls. Inspired by ‘Most Girls – a song by Hailee Steinfeld, it sparked a conversation about how attitudes towards this topic need to change. However focusing on girls, is only one chapter of a very intricate story… Unfortunately … Continue reading ‘Boy, Man Up’ – Know This, You Are Not Alone. I Understand You – I Am Just Like You…

“I Wanna Be Like Most Girls…”

I’ve been rather angry lately. Maverick brought this up a few weeks ago actually, which made my temper even worse, but I think I know the underlying reason why… I want to be pretty. I want to be found attractive. I want to possess all the superficial qualities that the world tells me that I … Continue reading “I Wanna Be Like Most Girls…”

A Letter To The Broken-hearted

Hey you, yes you. I know you are hurting, and you are allowed to. It’s come as a shock; it has to us all. I just want to ask one thing of you, please don’t ever let this change you for the worse.

Change… Why Do We Always Think That It’s Bad?

So I was chatting with a friend of mine today. Banter was being thrown in all directions, and then it changed. It got more serious. My friend told me that I had changed in the time that we had known each other, and it was because of the gym. This comment wasn't a positive one. … Continue reading Change… Why Do We Always Think That It’s Bad?

Thank You Mr Uber Driver, For Commenting On The Size Of My Body – And Not In A Good Way… 

I went out Friday night. Partying the night away, my friends and I were out until the wee small hours of the morning, which is pretty standard for us on a night out. Cut to home-time, and its time to order an Uber (after a trip to McDonald's - obviously). I catch my Uber, but … Continue reading Thank You Mr Uber Driver, For Commenting On The Size Of My Body – And Not In A Good Way… 

It’s Only For The Likes…

So I like social media. I think it can be a great thing. From an exposure or business perspective whereby in order to increase your customer base, awareness etc. you can reach the largest amount of people - depending on your target market of course. We have multiple options at our fingertips, especially now as … Continue reading It’s Only For The Likes…

Powerful Women: Let’s Remind Ourselves Just How Capable We Are

Of late, I have found myself becoming utterly obsessed with the way I look. I battle with this constant feeling of not meeting societal expectations. Not being pretty enough to be noticed. Not being attractive enough for myself. Not being enough of the physical ‘arm candy’ that we have come to believe we should be. … Continue reading Powerful Women: Let’s Remind Ourselves Just How Capable We Are

A World of Imperfections: Here is what I Know…

We are imperfect beings. We always will be. Our imperfections do not make us bad, but rather create a character so entirely unique to us. They - even if you don't believe it - make us loveable. These quirks, attributes and pieces of us that people notice, make us that little bit more interesting, unique … Continue reading A World of Imperfections: Here is what I Know…

Book Thoughts – Eat. Pray. Love.

Have you ever heard of Eat, Pray, Love? Now I clearly missed the bandwagon in 2006 and then again in 2010 when the film came out. It wasn’t even as if I was dragged along by it, and I got to jump on eventually, but rather that I just straight up overslept and missed my … Continue reading Book Thoughts – Eat. Pray. Love.
