Netflix Review: Emily in Paris Season 1 (spoiler alerts)

I just finished watching Season 1 of Emily in Paris literally 5 minutes ago and I had a sudden urge to write a blog about it. Have any of you guys watched it? What did you think? This isn't my normal motivational, deep, societal issue awareness kind of blog but I've been wanting to spice... Continue Reading →

Locked in…..Again

Did anyone else get really down when they first heard about this second lockdown? I definitely did! The first one was a novelty to everyone, something we had never seen or heard of before and with the help of Instagram memes and TikTok, we got through it. But at this point, it's just boring. Who...

Walking my way out

In my first year of university I hated, as in despised speaking out loud in lectures and seminars. Compared to the other people on my course, I felt like I had nothing valuable to add to debates and discussions, so I let that lie get to my head and it stopped me from speaking out...

Mental Health Matters

I went back to uni this week and it was probably the most stressful week of my year so far. Even more stressful than last terms exams. Although not that much happened, my mind has been filled with fear, panic and anxiety all week. It’s been my first time going back into uni in person... Continue Reading →

Let’s get real about: Body Image

It's been a while since I've written - well I've written of course, but I haven't posted anything for way too long. Between packing up the entire contents of my life in London and locating it to Surrey, I've been spending a lot of time getting myself together for the next academic year - Year...

Quarantine Update: What’s Next?

What's lockdown looking like for you at the moment? Have you got back into swing of a normal life or are you still feeling really cautious? I'm sort of in the middle. Of course I'm still cautious and careful but yet I am thankful that I have been able to get back to normal living... Continue Reading →

Strong Black Woman

This one may be less informative, less powerful, less valuable to you, and to the cause. But this is what is on my heart. And this is what I want to share. I cannot speak for the whole of the black community but I can speak for myself. I am a black woman, and like... Continue Reading →

Introducing Black

Black is not a personality type. Black is not a music genre. Black is not food. Black is not a shooting target. Black is not a threat. Black is not an enemy. Black is just like you. Black is beautiful. Black is capable. Black wants to achieve. Black wants to flourish. Black want to live.... Continue Reading →

You’ve posted a black square…. now what?

Tuesday 2nd June saw thousands of Instagram users posting a black square. Thousands of people standing up for Black Lives Matter, refraining from posting personal pictures, videos and stories, hashtags reading "#blackouttuesday" and "#theshowmustbepaused". If you didn't have a feed filled with loads of black squares, I'm convinced you're living under a rock! Although this... Continue Reading →

For the next generation

I'm sure most of you have seen the news recently with the racial injustice that is happening in this world that we all live in. If you haven't, and have somehow managed to miss it, I suggest you remove your blindfold, get on the internet and do a bit of research on it. Although we... Continue Reading →

Stop putting them on trial!

In the last few weeks or so I've seen so many posts on Instagram and Twitter that say something along the lines of: "If you haven't bothered to check up me during this pandemic, I don't class you as a friend". Or something of a similar flavour. Have seen them too? Gratefully all of these... Continue Reading →
