I’m A Libra And I’m Outraged

  So as probably every single person on Facebook or Twitter has noticed, near enough every bodies star sign has totally changed – the first I heard of it was this article by Cosmopolitan. As ridiculous as I’m about to sound, I’m kind of a little annoyed about the whole thing. I mean I’m not one of those people who’s madly into horoscopes and charging crystals and the powers of the universe and all that jazz – don’t get me wrong, nothing wrong with it if you are! – but I did sort of believe a little something about my star sign really seeming to relate to me. That meant something to me. Scorpios are often described as being fiery, independent and determined individuals who never give up and that spoke to me.

It’s no news that, despite the fact that it’s 2016 and come on, people know that people have sex, there’s still so much stigma around sex itself and being open about your sexuality. People nowadays are still shunned left right and centre for being open and honest about their sex lives as if you’re the spawn of Satan. Being open about sex leads you to all sorts of labels; you’re a crude, you’re a slag, you name it. Yet why, in a society that’s so advanced, are we still so...

Five Instagram Accounts You Have To Follow Vol. 1

There’s absolutely nothing I love more than scrolling endlessly through beautiful Instagram feeds and going full stalker mode and liking photos from back in 2013 – if it’s pretty, I’m basically game. I have 0 shame when it comes to liking old photos. So I figured it was probably about time I shared all of my favourite feeds with everyone and hopefully spread a little beauty. I’m talking Instagram accounts to make you feel more positive, accounts that create the worst kind of home envy and feeds that are just plain stunning. @keepitbright First of all I bring to...
