Like a Girl

Hi Guys,

As I am writing this it is the 8th of March. This post will be going up on the 9th but I am going to continue like it is still the 8th and declare... Happy Women's Day! Yes, there is a whole day devoted to female equality and defeating the sexism and misogyny surrounding the female gender.

I did not realise until I was browsing Instagram and saw all of the wonderful posts about it! This caused me to research it and I found myself becoming engrossed in the thousands of discussions all around the internet. One of the most interesting and shocking facts I found was that in some countries women are treated as 3rd class citizens. 

This was appalling and it really hit me with how lucky I am to live in a country where women are accepted. Although this is mainly true, the stereotypes and sexism which are thrown around without a second glance is still unpleasant. I found a video by Always (Always #LikeAGirl) in which people were asked to do different thing 'like a girl'.

The women, men and boys who were doing them acted overly feminine and flung their arms around. When the young girls were told to 'run like a girl' or 'hit like a girl' they went all out and tried their hardest. The moral was that even if it is not obvious, comments about girls being the weaker sex are wrong, not just because they are rude but because they are incorrect.

If you put your mind to something you can be just a strong as any man. If someone tries to put you down by saying you do something 'like a girl', it is ridiculous. I run like a girl. I hit like a girl. I dance like a girl. I write like a girl. I act like a girl. No matter what anyone says, I will always do these things. I am a girl.


 And I am proud to be a girl. 

I hope that everyone who is reading this know that they are amazing and should be proud to be themselves too, no matter what gender you are!


Thank you for Reading

My Christmas Gift Guide!!

Hi Guys,

Welcome to the first of my Christmas posts! I'm already ridiculously excited and there is still 29 days to go! Today I'm going to be giving my gift suggestions for anyone who needs help with their gift giving. Obviously, Christmas isn't all about the presents but it's always nice to give someone a gift that you know they will love! That was a super long intro so lets get into the actual post!

£5 or less...

1) Sleek Mini Matte Me 4 set: I have this on my list because this set looks amazing! For anyone who doesn't know, liquid lipsticks are meant to be the next 'thing' (Thanks to Kylie Jenner) so these are perfect for the makeup lover in your life! The only thing I will say is that they have been sold out online and are impossible to find in store. Let's just hope that they get restocked soon!

2)Impulse Body Spray Mini Cracker Gift Set- Rock and Love, Why Not and Very Pink are all included in this adorable set. The best part about it is that it is cu…

What you Need For Back to School...

It's already this time of year again; obviously I'm thrilled. Of course this is the best part of summer with the perpetual worrying about getting the 'wrong' thing and all of the consideration you have to put into making sure your bag won't clash with your face. I mean, maybe that's not what you're thinking, but now you are, right? Is your backpack the wrong colour for you? I can't confirm it isn't, but I can guarantee that these items are all cute as hell.

Bags:
VANS Snoopy Backpack- Currently, this back pack is sat in my wardrobe, waiting for the sixth of September. I saw it when I was in Cornwall and fell in love with it so ordered it as soon as I got home. My bag was VANS last year and was so well made (there's even a secret pocket)! This one is a dark navy with little drawings of skateboarding Snoopy all around. I've loved Snoopy since I was little and this is just a nice homage to him!
Michael Kors Over the Shoulder- I have never been mor…
