Do you know what you’re going as for Halloween yet? Eek, I don’t! For the first time in years, I’m not ahead of the game with this stuff – I’ve just had loads else on my mind! No matter what I end up going as, I don’t think I will be able to recreate a look quite as good as this. Sarah from Candy Hearts Make Up & Hair in Liverpool is doing different looks for Halloween this year – and I was lucky enough to be her model!
*TRIGGER WARNING* We’re in education for years and years and most of us leave with a decent knowledge of Pythagoras’ Theorem and how to list what’s in our pencil case in about three different languages – without having any real-world skills. I’m serious. I’ve never once used that stuff, but taxes, mortgages, and basically anything I genuinely need to be an adult is pretty alien to me. However, you can make mistakes along the way with all that stuff. One thing you can’t mess up is sexual consent. It’s not a joke, and yet it’s rarely discussed, and as a new academic year begins, I think it’s time we changed things.
