5 Things I Learnt From Moving Out

Whether it be into your student digs or moving into your first pad with your pals or significant other, taking the plunge and moving out from your parent or guardian's home is a big deal. Whilst it's super exciting to have new-found freedom and a whole flat/house to decorate exactly how you want, it can also be pretty daunting and not as you might expect. But fear not, as today I'm teaming up with Surrey-based estate agents, The Personal Agent* to share the things I've learnt since moving out.

(TW: Rape/Sexual Assault) I Believe Her.

After a couple of days of reading about Ched Evan's acquittal, I couldn't let it all pass me by without speaking out and against the ruling and in solidarity with the victim and victims everywhere who are failed by flawed legal systems all over the world, daily. In case you weren't aware, football player Ched Evans was acquitted of rape following his retrial this week, and the judge, a woman, gave the advice that "drunk consent is still consent", a dangerous precedent that will further put off victims from coming forward following sexual assault/ rape, thus letting rapists know they are as safe as ever.

Kat Von D x Debenham Launch

Beauty lovers, unless you've been living under a rock you will be very aware of the much awaited & long overdue arrival of Kat Von D Beauty in the UK, exclusively at Debenhams. Although the range hit down online in September, just last Saturday was the in-store launch at Debenhams, Oxford Circus. As I was in London anyway following the Collective event and there was the chance to meet Kat herself, my friend Emily and I got in line bright and early.
