The 5 women on TV right now we all secretly want to be

November 27, 2014

I can't be the only one who watches someone brilliant on TV and immediately changes my life ambition. When I first watched Harry Potter, I wanted to be an actress like Emma Watson so badly that I went to an open audition for Northern Lights (and failed, miserably.) After watching Meryl Streep in The Devil Wears Prada I told everyone I wanted to be the editor of Vogue - that one lasted a good few years - and most recently, after watching James Bond, I wanted to work for MI6 (I still do, actually, but no one takes me seriously. Honestly, SOMEONE has to do it.) Anyway, my point is, television and movies - and the people in them - have an amazing ability to capture one's imagination. From a feminist point of view, there probably aren't as many strong, powerful women on our screens as there should be - but there are still some pretty inspiring characters that make us all wish we were just a little bit more sassy.

Recently, as anyone who knows me may have noticed, I have had a bit of a wardrobe revelation; and two months in, I just can't preach about it enough. I spent my first year of student life spending money on pieces I loved, but never being able to afford the entire look and consequently feeling like I hadn't bought anything at all. Over the summer, I realised the solution to my problem was very simple: Become Chic. All my friends have laughed at me, a LOT, for describing absolutely everything since then as 'chic'. I do appreciate the irony of this - chic does tend to say effortless and casual and Audrey Hepburn whereas, obviously, I have actually tried quite hard - but only in the beginning. Since September I have only bought clothes in black, grey and white, and here's why it's perfect. 

Best friends in London ft. Dirty Burger and Wig Wam Bam

November 15, 2014

Last weekend, after spending my "reading week" relaxing, shopping and overeating at home, my lovely, lovely best friends came to visit me in London. As you might have guessed from the amount they've featured in previous posts, these girls are absolutely like my sisters. Without spilling my heart out to my anonymous readers, I will only say that I'm not finding Uni easy at the moment - and not a day goes by when I don't rely on our ridiculous Whatapp conversations to cheer me up. Since the months have flown past, I suddenly realised I hadn't seen them since August - which meant that, obviously, a reunion was needed ASAP. Cue loud laughter, Thailand reminiscing and a LOT of
wine...
