Review: The Assistant

I've reviewed a few films on this blog, but I never thought I'd be adding one to the 'staying in' category until 2020 arrived with its global pandemic, lockdowns, and cinema closures! I was recently sent a preview link for The Assistant, which is written and directed by Kitty Green and is about an ambitious... Continue Reading →

Review: Plus+ by Bethany Rutter

For a few years now, I've had trouble finding a style icon I can relate to. Everyone in the public eye whose style I admire always seems to be tall, thin and rich - I shouldn't really be surprised as they're celebrities! - so looking at images of them can very quickly turn from aspirational...

Review: Photo printing by Cheerz

Thanks to the wonders of the internet, digital photography and social media, many more people than ever before are taking photographs of themselves and their surroundings but, with a little bit of knowledge and thought, you can make photographs.

Described to me as "a collection of writings by prominent feminist writers, thinkers and performers, revealing... Continue Reading →

Review: Pretty Honest

Now that I am 40, I realised that I'm probably going to have to make some changes to my lifestyle, particularly where my body is concerned. It's not just my fitness (or lack thereof) that I can no longer afford to ignore, my skin could do with a bit more attention too. I bought Pretty... Continue Reading →

Review: Man meets Woman

Gender is a huge topic and, until a few years ago, I didn't realise just how big it is. Back then, I had no idea that many people don't view it as binary, that some men don't realise it applies to them, and that thinking about how society expects us to act based on what... Continue Reading →
