Age is about more than just wrinkles

Everyone gets older, yet some people never seem to age. Earlier this week I met up with a friend I've not seen in years. We studied together at university and, without her much needed encouragement, I probably wouldn't have got the grade I did. She now has a daughter and we've not met in person... Continue Reading →

Feminism Friday: Facial skincare

You might not think that skincare is a suitable topic for a Feminism Friday post, but I do have a perfectly good reason for this.
