This post is all about vape culture, including the advantages and disadvantages of vaping, and the impact of vaping on young people. I will include how vaping has become so mainstream and popular with Gen Z, the way in which vape shops profit by reaching new audiences and I will even mention how vaping can link to toxic masculinity! Also, I have left a link to my podcast on this topic at the bottom, so please feel free to check this out!

The Sad Girl
You know what sucks. Feeling upset, hurt or really just sad.

The Male Gaze
Think about it. You are leaving the house for the first time today. You were happily cooped up in your room, wearing, I do not know, tracksuit bottoms or something, and chances are you do not have makeup on.

Why you don’t have to be “That Girl”
