Internalised Homaphobia


“I am bisexual, but to be fair, I do tend to go for men rather than women. At least usually. It is because naturally I tend to get attracted to men, but it does not mean that I do not like women or that I would not find myself becoming attracted to them. At theContinue reading “Internalised Homaphobia”

Body Neutrality


Wherever you look as a young woman, what do you see. Oh, admire the talent of this person, this is how you become successful in the work place, and brand new art for you all to admire. Don’t be silly. Obviously there is something missing, and once we point out that is the tremendous amountContinue reading “Body Neutrality”

The Toxic Side to the Body Positivity Movement that no one wants to Discuss


Happy new year, and welcome to 2022. The time of year again where gyms, gym wear companies and, come on let us just bite the bullet here, really anything relating to diet culture, can look forward to making money off people. This includes those who long to start fresh this year, embarking on a journey of health and wellness.Continue reading “The Toxic Side to the Body Positivity Movement that no one wants to Discuss”

21 Things I have Learned During 2021


Okay, so hopefully we are still just about in the new year spirit, if such thing exists, where we still may be reflecting on the previous year, just before we must face January full on and forget all our new year’s resolutions. I remember last year (well the year before now), posting “18 things I have Learned before turning 18”, althoughContinue reading “21 Things I have Learned During 2021”

Personal (and Blog) Update


Hello, and happy new year! Sorry, I am pretty sure this is the third post now where I have wished everyone a happy new year, but new year does only occur once a year, so we may as well make the most of it while we can.  So, I will begin with how I am getting on personally. It was nice toContinue reading “Personal (and Blog) Update”

What 2021 Has Taught me, and my New Years Resolutions


No, I do not have too much faith in New Year’s resolutions either, because often we think we are going to keep them, then we find it becomes too much, or even circumstances change making it practically impossible (2020 anyone). Therefore, at least from my experience, it is better to make resolutions which are not quite as specific, so that they can evolveContinue reading “What 2021 Has Taught me, and my New Years Resolutions”

Survival Guide for Disorganised Bloggers!


Hello! So, in case this is the first time you have stumbled across this blog, my name is Victoria and I am 19 (it was literally my Birthday yesterday haha). While I have been blogging for about two years. However recently I have taken a longer than anticipated break from it. Mainly because revising for A levels turned in to working too many hours over the summer, which turned intoContinue reading “Survival Guide for Disorganised Bloggers!”

Why you don’t have to be “That Girl”


Imagine this. You are in your late teens/early twenties, and for the first time in forever, you have a little bit of time for yourself. You may not know it, but you really do value this time. However, you do not have the energy or motivation to go for a walk, pick up a book or paint.Continue reading “Why you don’t have to be “That Girl””

Why Diet Culture is so Damaging!


Perhaps people of all shapes and sizes pop into your head when you think about a “healthy” person. They’re reasonably happy, they eat a balanced diet, don’t drink (too) much alcohol and they probably have a fairly active lifestyle. Alternatively however, we may subconsciously think of someone who is quite small. Or should I sayContinue reading “Why Diet Culture is so Damaging!”
