Thoughts on… nostalgia

In the early 1990s, UK schools didn't have many of the traditions we saw in the movies - proms, yearbooks etc - but some of my fellow students decided that they wanted to change this.

If hot and well written sex... Continue Reading →

Books, magazines and zines all take on an additional quality... Continue Reading →

Feminism Friday: The Gentlewoman ‘In Fashion’

For Feminism Friday this week, I couldn't resist sharing this fascinating video interview with The Gentlewoman editor-in-chief Penny Martin, that was conducted by SHOWstudio editor Lou Stoppard as part of their 'In Fashion' series. Martin admits to not being interested in 'fashion' as a teenager, but that she and her peers were reveling in the... Continue Reading →
