This Saturday was a very different and very negative experience, however. It was 'Single Pringle' night (presumably because Valentine's Day is coming up) but said on the event … Continue reading Suburbia Southampton – Sexual Harassment Acceptable?
Hey everyone, Personally, I'm a firm believer that if you want something to happen you need to work for it. Sitting around and complaining won't change anything, if you want change you have to take action. This can be applied in lots of ways.

Hello everyone, It's now 2018, and my New Years resolution is to post more consistently on here! 2017 was a year full of change for me, most notably moving away to Southampton. Here's to a great 2018! Unfortunately I didn't reach my Goodreads Reading goal of 200 books, I made it through almost 90/100 I … Continue reading Happy New Year!

The bottles are $17 each (though in the UK you might be able to find them on ASOS or beauty bay etc. for cheaper) but the … Continue reading Limecrime: Dark Unicorns – Hair Dye for Brunettes
Hey everyone, I read a couple of articles this morning addressing some 'professionals' who have advised head teachers that they should not be addressing pupils as 'boys' and 'girls' because it causes stress. It was also said that terms such as 'girls' and 'ladies' would never be used by one of the professionals as it … Continue reading Gender stereotypes in schools
