This London Fashion Week, bold leather looks contrast with soft pastel colours and kaleidoscopic prints as ethereal and artfully dressed models show us the newest trends and most daring looks that will inspire our SS17 wardrobes. Though these designers may sadly be beyond our price range, their influences and style will most certainly give you...Read More
With a passing interest in history, particularly ancient history, when I took a BA in English Literature I felt I was consigning that interest to a vague hobby, pushing it to the background of my life. However, I found my slight craving for history more than satisfied during my course; fictional work can be a more insightful...Read More
Nearly everyone is partial to a cute, fluffy animal, whether your home is populated by a menagerie of pets or you just enjoy watching cat videos on YouTube. Choosing a career in animal care, whether zookeeper or vet, is a massive and daunting prospect that few of us undertake. After all, seeing any animal at...Read More
Women’s bodies have always been a battleground in one way or another. Married women regained their possession of their own bodies during the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th and in the 1960s we gained the right to choose if we didn’t want to bring a new life into the world....Read More
The recent troubles in Belgium, terrorists squatting there like an insidious mould that just won’t shift, may discourage many people from visiting. It’s a crying shame that these groups see everyday life and beautiful places, and can only think of doing something ugly to them. Of course we try not to let them win, though...Read More

For me, the anticipation of travelling is more stressful than the travelling itself. Once I’m through security and dragging my lightweight bag through the airport I’ll be in the zone, the travelling zone, and as long as nothing goes wrong I’ll be fine. Hopefully I won’t have to think on my feet at all, because...Read More
No one who’s experienced the British railway system can deny that it’s an over priced mess; to be honest, the cost of it is my main criticism as the majority of my train journeys have been on time and uninterrupted for the most part. But it wasn’t always that way. We may not make much anymore, but...Read More
If ever I’m feeling those old self-esteem issues rise again, I read celebrity gossip stories on Buzzfeed or the list of trending topics on Facebook. They give me a sense of superiority, but not over the musician/singer/actor who has the misfortune to be their subject; I feel superior over the people who fuel and participate...Read More
