I have spent much of February preparing for March and more specifically Thursday 8 March International Women’s Day (IWD). During that time I have attended small scale events at The Club at The Ivy, observed women on large conference stages and held private meetings with a number of senior women. Each encounter has been an...Read More
There is a common misconception amongst women that wearing black must mean we are scared of colours and patterns. That we shy away from them in a desperate bid to hide the flaws we dislike most about our bodies. Turns out though that couldn’t be further from the truth.

Following on from my last post talking about the autumn trends I’m looking forward to wearing, I thought I’d start off with perhaps my favourite of the seven I mentioned: the chunky cable knit and midi skirt trend.

The big screen adaption of Margot Lee Shetterly’s sensational true story of the same name tells the tale of an...Read More
What a feminist is: a person who advocates social, political, legal and economic rights for women, equal to those of men. What a feminist is often confused with: a man hating, bitter woman whose only goal is to triumph over men in every way. Recently the backlash that self-confessed feminists face daily has come to...Read More
Today we are obsessed with the Instagram girls who are seemingly perfect in every way. We place them on pedestals and hold them in the highest esteem, yet why we do it we just can’t pin.
