It was just the other day, as I was writing the blog before this one, that I found myself pondering the question, ‘Who is Confucius?’ Now it might strike you as odd that such a seemingly random thought would pop into my head and then compel me to write about it. So let me explain....Read More
Being born female means more than the XX chromosomes. It means you have won the reproduction battle and it means flying the flag for feminism and equality from the moment you take your first breath.

Fashion can be fickle. What’s ‘on trend’ one day can become fashion road kill in the blink of an eye and as much as we probably don’t like to admit it, we are all slaves to the style alter. We’re always told by our elders to keep hold of precious items because one day everything...Read More
