The Book List #16 | Too Fat Too Slutty Too Loud: The Rise and Reign of the Unruly Woman

// T H E  B O O K  L I S T #16 \\
 Too Fat, Too Slutty, Too Loud: The Rise and Reign of the Unruly Woman.

Hello there, back again with another book review. This time a feminist book, which charts all the women in popular culture who have pushed boundaries through being 'too something', whether that be Kim Kardashian who endured constant scrutiny for being 'Too Pregnant' or Serena Williams who through being above and beyond in her field, being 'Too Strong'. Through exploring the media's view on these women, to how being too unruly in their actions have changed societies views on different issues. It was an extremely interesting read, with each chapter offering a different 'Too'; all women who, without realising have pushed boundaries but suffered constant scrutiny beyond thinking, definitely worth picking up for an insight into have far societies issues have come for women, most definitely making you proud to be one!

Straws, Skincare & a Lunchbox | Little Ways I Stay Sustainable #2

Straws, Skincare & a Lunchbox

Following on from this post, I posted a couple of months back, I've continued my journey in trying to live more sustainably, educating myself further on little ways I can change my daily habits and ever evolving my lifestyle choices. Having previously wrote about how I have made a drastic decline in the amount of clothes I buy, with various ways I now donate/recycle them when they've sadly lost love in my wardrobe, I've also touched previously on reusable coffee cups as well as small changes in my diet, so today I wanted to do a part two. As with everyone being fed ever more information on things they can do to help, I feel I've picked up so much more information and useful websites recently to help to teach me what can be done, as well as invested in items that will definitely make a small difference; even just in my daily life.

Three Things from the Week: Books, Blogs & The Colour Mint

Books, Blogs & The Colour Mint

It’s been a long ol’ time since I sat down and wrote down a few words on this blog of mine, as with everyone from time to time, life can pass by in a blur of living, working (and often in my case rosé drinking.. I mean what are your twenties for, eh?!) But, that’s the great thing I’ve found lately, I’ve started to really not care if my life isn’t documented online. This blog will always been something that I have in my life, but if I choose to not update it for a couple weeks/months/ whatever, that’s absolutely fine. So here I am, back once more with a tale of things from my week that have got me through. A book from a friend that has me absolutely gripped (and belly laughing in that case), a colour that has well and truly taken over my wardrobe as well as a blog that I’ve found myself reading (scouring) and feeling more inspired than ever. See life’s a funny thing, one minute you’re in a blur of the London-working (interning) life, busily rushing onto a packed Northern Line. The next you’re sat down, coffee in hand, mellowly reflecting on your week; so let’s reflected a bit shall we?

Fashion Interning: How It's Going & What I've Learnt

How it's going & what I've learnt.  

Today marks the end of exactly seven weeks since I first began my Social Media and Commerce internship in the heart of London, for a very swanky couture fashion brand. It's been eye opening, it's been BUSY, it's been the biggest whirlwind of my life but boy has it been a good'un so far. As I study fashion marketing, this forms part of our 3rd module of second year, with this being a compulsory 11 weeks internship (we had to find ourselves) although me being me and not being able to say no to anything I've extended mine throughout summer.

Little Ways I Stay Sustainable (& Try To Stick To!)

I feel, the word Sustainability is quite the buzz word, dotted all around Social Media, endlessly showing the effects our daily habits are having on the environment. I feel it would be extremely damaging (no pun intended!) to call sustainability a trend, but in essence, the past few years, brands and individuals are using this new wave of helping the plant and using it as a clever marketing tool; probably the best marketing tool out there, would you not agree? Of course, no single person can be completely sustainable, because it's a how-long-is-a-piece-of-string type scenario if you ask how sustainable are you? But, with the growing 'trend' as it were, the more information we are getting as to how you can help change daily habits to really make an impact. Therefore, I felt I wanted to share what I do day-to-day. They may be small things, but they may make a big impact.. ever heard the quote 'I'm only throwing away 1 straw.. said 8 million people' ?!
