June June is fire And everything is burning The city, the sea, the fields It finally claims me In a thin, white heat Along both of my wrists Somebody sounds the alarm And my family arrive like firefighters Dressed in too big uniforms How do you tell them you Don't want to be saved when … Continue reading 4 months.

Fashion Friend Love Story: Were Marie Antoinette and Rose Bertin doomed by their fashion and friendship?

When I think of relationships, my first thought is of friendship. The first time they make you giggle or, more accurately, snort laugh. The sharing of a whispered secret in the middle of the night. The comforting embrace and listening ear after a long day. And finally, the choosing of your daily armour. Whether you … Continue reading Fashion Friend Love Story: Were Marie Antoinette and Rose Bertin doomed by their fashion and friendship?

Strict Self-Care

#SelfCare has been a trend or so for the last year, particularly with brands jumping on board to say that this particular candle will help your well-being or this face mask will reset your skin... and your life.

My mother is a plum tree, Small in size But overladen with worth The winter frost is harsh, Plucking the bones of her And leaving her empty But when I am desperate And starving, She revives me with sweetness Because of my mother, My children will sit beneath her Juice trickling down their chins

No More Girl

NO MORE GIRL - THE PLAY A person rises from her bed. The sheets are tangled. She hasn't slept well. In a thin white nightgown, she walks to centre stage and faces the back drop. It transforms into a beach.  The audience gasp and applaud as real water laps at the sandy shore of the … Continue reading No More Girl

Fast Fashion Kills

In a recent Vogue article, the headline asked 'Did You Know Sweatshops Exist In The UK?' and truthfully? I had no freakin' clue. Sweatshops are currently present in the city of Leicester with unethical companies operating under multiple names. They pay on average £3.00 per hour for hard work in locations not suitable for entering let alone … Continue reading Fast Fashion Kills


We should divorce, he says. I open my mouth, To negotiate, to compromise, To beg, to plead   A single moth escapes. I start to scream, My entire body shakes with the sound, But it is the fluttering of thousands of wings.   I burst apart. Flying off into a hundred directions, Each of them … Continue reading Apart

I recently got back from a quick trip to Prague! I went with a friend and we spent about three days there. It is so beautiful!

I will roar for you. You do not need me to, You are perfectly capable of defending yourself. But when I see the vultures circling, I am overcome with a need to protect you.

History of Plus Size Fashion

Plus size fashion actually began in the late nineteenth/early twentieth century when ready to wear fashion became increasingly popular. Before then, clothes were hand made or professionally created to fit individual bodies. You'd hope that this meant that it wouldn't matter what size you were but this did not stop society pressing the idea of an "ideal weight" on to … Continue reading History of Plus Size Fashion
