My take on the Me Too Movement; Staying safe!

Welcome back boo,

I hope you are all well!

So I’ve been wanting to discuss an important issue for quite some time now. The Me Too movement is a movement which I think has infiltrated all areas of the media in 2018 but the underlying issue itself has always been present in every woman’s life in one way or another since pretty much the beginning of humanity. I want to make a mini series out of this where I speak about different elements of the movement in every post as I don’t think such a topic can be debunked in ONE post! Y’all know how passionate I am about not only empowering women but also ensuring our safety. So I have partnered up with We Love Dates to tell you a bit more about how to stay safe, and combat sexual harassment and abuse particularly on online dating platforms and out on dates; something everyone (including myself) does not consider enough these days.  Continue reading

Is University Worth It?

Welcome back boo!

I trust you are all well.

You guys know that I am currently studying at university. This week I really want to discuss a question lots of my younger followers ask me; is university really worth it? Is it worth the £45K+ debt? Is it worth the three years of time that I could have used jumping straight into employment and getting experience? Is it worth the stress and mental challenges? Are you guaranteed a job afterwards? In light of recent governmental events, is it worth the inconvenient strikes? My answer to all of these in a nutshell is- University is what YOU make of it (I know, cliche right?) but there are a few things I want to share that could apply to future and current students. LET’S DO IT.

Phenomenal Woman; The Competitive Transition Into Adulthood.

WELCOME back boo,

I hope you are all well.

Since starting this blog, my real passion truly resonates in our generation’s FUTURE as the heir to the throne we call ‘earth’. So today I want to celebrate femininity– a post inspired by my favourite poetic piece; Maya Angelou~ Phenomenal Woman.

Pretty women wonder where my secret lies. 
I’m not cute or built to suit a fashion model’s size   
But when I start to tell them, 
They think I’m telling lies. 
I say, 
It’s in the reach of my arms, 
The span of my hips,   
The stride of my step,   
The curl of my lips.   
I’m a woman 
Phenomenally. 
Phenomenal woman,   
That’s me.
