The attitude towards women who defend themselves against the objectification of today’s society has yet again proved to be a disappointment. A few months back, I was subject to harassment in a club unlike any I have experienced before.
Here is a little context:
Men grope. If you are going on a night out, particularly a girl’s night out, you have to be prepared for unwanted attention in an overcrowded club, as disgusting as this concept may be in the 21st century – hungry hands will usually find you. This is what happened on ‘said’ occasion. Nothing out of the ordinary. Nothing a glare and a ‘leave me alone’ won’t solve.

Having recently been following Hannah Witton’s ‘The HormoneDiaries’ and having a sudden surge in wanting to become environmentally friendly as best I can, I decided to jump on the bandwagon, and give the menstrual cup a go.

On the OrganiCup website, they provide plenty of information about their product, also supplying shocking statistics such as "the average women uses 11,000 pads or sanitary towels during a lifetime"... that's a lot of tampons people. This little thing, can last for up to 12 hours!

This particular cup is vegan and hygienic and can hold up to three times the amount than pads and tampons - and the best part - these cups last for years!

Going to University for the first time, is both exciting and terrifying.
For the first time, you are left to your own devices and yes, again, thats both exciting and terrifying.
Getting through that first week is the hardest part of University, finding your feet, adjusting to being away from home, and meeting new people; it's a lot to comprehend!

Here are my top tips to surviving!

Rye is a beautiful seaside town in Kent with antique, jewellery and coffee shops galore!

It’s a perfect destination for a weekend escape with family, friends or your significant other, or simply for a day out to do some off-the-high-street shopping!

On a warm July afternoon, my Mum and I popped to Rye for a Mummy-Daughter-Day.

There are lots of lovely little jewellery shops throughout Rye, most of them Antique Jewellery shops offering hundreds of unique trinkets, their window displays housing everything from rings to necklaces to broaches, popular designs being art deco and marcasite pieces. Mum and I spent hours wandering from shop to shop marvelling at all the sparkles filling the cabinets, the major problem being limited money and far too many beautiful things.

After three years of living a good three and a half hours away from one another - our long distance relationship has finally become just 'a relationship'!

And boy, does it feel good to say that!!!

It has not always been easy, in fact, at times it has felt almost impossible, but here we are.
Three years later; he with an upper 2nd in Product and Furniture Design, and I still with two years left of university, which is thankfully less than an hours drive away from home.

Our new journey is learning to live together.
