Hey lovelies! You’ve probably noticed recently that I’ve been blogging about serious topics that matter to me instead of just posts on fashion and beauty…Don’t worry, I’ll carry on blogging about all that good stuff, but I thought this blog should also be a platform that allows me too express my other personal views as well.

Now onto the post…

I think it’s disgusting that women occasionally have to deal with being whistled at, being honked at by cars and being cat-called at with a degrading comment, such as “yo, sexy” or “oi, baby”, making women feel like an object instead of a normal human being trying to get on with their day. Women should not have to deal with this type of disgusting street harassment, even if the person is just trying to say “hi” or “be nice”. It’s horrible, and actually using the words “hi” would be much more appreciated, other than having sickening language thrown at all us women in general, making us all feel uncomfortable. This is why I’m proud to say that many women have been tweeting with the hashtag #NotJustHello; sharing their views and experiences on street harassment, to fight back and make sure all men (and women) know that this is #NotJustHello.

What do you think?

14  13 1615Hey lovelies! Recently I’ve just been re-watching many a French fashion film; French accents are so romantic and beautiful…Oh to be French, living in Paris avec une frange…Literally the dream. I’ve also realised how elegant and remarkably dressed French women are; dungarees, peter pan collars, awesome hats and pearls…

Have you heard about Vanessa Hudgens’ new Bongo clothing ad campaign? Well, in a nutshell…All the pictures that glossy Hudgens has posed for are in fact, photo-shop free! No retouches or airbrushing was used at all, and it’s just pure Vanessa as her true self. This is such a powerful campaign, as it shows that all us girls (and boys!!!) shouldn’t have to change ourselves, but love our bodies and who we are…For who we are! It’s so inspirational that Vanessa would agree to go ahead with this, as it’s so hard to find celebrities in magazines with none of the normal photo-shopping antics that you would normally find!

It’s admirable that Bongo would choose to break down those photo-shop barriers, and show people that we need to end this photo-shopping frenzy…It’s not fair on those women who pick up magazines and question whether their bodies are ‘too fat’ or ‘too thin’, when in fact they’re neither…Everyone’s beautiful the way that they are. Fact.

It’s such a positive campaign, that we need to get other companies to follow in Bongo‘s footsteps and bring an end to these false images of women, when they don’t even look that way! It’s safe to say that I shall be ticking Vanessa off as one of the positive role models that we should all see ourselves admiring…

What are your thoughts on the horrible truth of photo-shopping?

P.S. Bongo owns all these photos!

hvL1EeqsHey lovelies! So okay, it’s starting to brighten up a lot here in England, with many a summer spell, and practically everyday I seem to end up bathing in my own sweat…It’s definitely Summer, which means many will be off to get their bodies fully bronzed up, but not me.

Why shouldn’t we all just embrace our own natural skin? Yes, I’m rather pale, but it doesn’t mean I need to go off and apply fake tan, or go out and bathe in the sun, just to try to get a tan, whilst effectively putting myself at risk of skin cancer…Pale girls in general have less skin pigmentation, so when they’re exposed to the sun they’re often at a high risk, as well as if they got into a tanning booth.

Of course I’m not saying that you should shut yourselves indoors all day, of course not! I mean, in England most people lack vitamin D because they don’t get enough sun, but this doesn’t mean that you should go outside without any sun cream just to gain a tan, and instead burn yourself silly. All I want to express, is that you shouldn’t need to try to get a tan just to cover up the fact that you may have quite pale skin, like me…You should embrace whatever skin you have, and we all just need to gain that extra boost of self-confidence and learn to love ourselves the way that we are!

Hey lovelies! I just wanted to share this video, as it really did do what the title said it would! It really made me think about how so many of us take so much for granted…Some of us are so selfish and don’t even try to help give people what they need. This topic is really important to me, as I feel that every individual should try their hardest at giving for nothing in return, but to just feel that satisfaction that you’ve actually gone and tried to help someone.

This is why I wanted to share Sam Pepper‘s video, so that you could also keep this in mind, and also try to share this around to make others think.

Sometimes those who have less give more…”We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.”
