Halloween Fun @ Candy Hearts Make Up & Hair, Liverpool

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!

#ConsentIs: Consent At University & Beyond

*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.

Bloggers’ Festival

Since moving to London, it’s been nice to get involved in the blogging ‘community’ a little more. I don’t blog to be a ‘blogger’ – I blog so that I can write. However, I’m not going to deny that there are some perks that come along with the blogging thing. When you spend so much time and energy on a project, it’s nice to be around other people who understand and who share things with you. And yes, it’s nice to feel rewarded for your efforts!

What Festivals Taught Me About My Phone Addiction

Hi, my name is Claire Louise Sheridan, and I’m a phone-aholic (this is the part where I think you’re supposed to say “Hi Claire”). I’ve known this for ages, I’m not going to lie, but it’s gotten to the point where I physically will not leave my house without my charger. I charge my phone in restaurants, at work, in DJ booths in clubs, and on many a floor in shopping centres. Basically, the idea of being without a phone is like missing a limb, and festivals exacerbate the problem for the most part because there are often very few places to charge your phone. So what’s a girl to do?

An Open Letter To Men’s Rights Activists

Are you a Men’s Rights Activist? Hi, this piece is aimed at you. Please sit down and read before you make any judgements. Yes, you. I can sense your indignation already, and I’m just waiting for the ‘Feminazi’ comments to start rolling in. However, I can assure you that I’m nothing of the sort – I mean for starters, I’ve never practiced mass genocide in the name of a cause I believe in.

OOTD: Gig Edition, Reading Festival Round-Up

I go to a ton of festivals, and I like to look the part. Plus, these days, I know it’s a bit of a “who’s who” type thing, so looking like you made the effort is a nice touch. Sure, it’s not all about what you wear, but looking good is part of the fun of it! For this year’s Reading Festival (Saturday), I braved it in white dungarees, which was risky because of my fake tan and the mud. By the end of the night, these were a little less than pristine, but by that time, I didn’t care. I also realized once I stepped into the sunshine that my bra (aka crop top) was slightly see-through. Oh wellll!
