So, You Want To Be A Writer? Retail V Magazines

Sunday, 26 February 2017

I never thought I'd end up in the job I'm in today. I always knew I wanted to write, but I had my heart set on magazines. As a kid I used to make my own magazines out of folded A4 sheets and stickers, and as I grew older films like 13 Going on 30, Sex and the City and Devil Wears Prada only spurred me on. Some people watched Devil Wears Prada and shuddered at the thought of working for a Miranda Priestly, whereas all I could think about was how fabulous her coats and office were.  I worked so hard towards my goal, interning at all the big names I could and racking up contacts and portfolio experience for the day I graduated (in Journalism and Politics, FYI).

9 Ways To Feel CONFIDENT In The Gym

Sunday, 5 February 2017

The first time I ever went to a gym I fannied about on the treadmill for half an hour because it looked like the simplest machine before leaving and not returning for a month. I was sure everyone was staring at me while I tried to work out how the incline worked. Since then a lot has changed, and the gym is one of the only places I feel really calm, safe and relaxed. It took a lot to get here for me, so I've pulled together some tips for anyone who is in the same position as 18 year old gym-virgin Callie... 

16 things I learnt in 2016

Saturday, 28 January 2017

Okay, so January is nearly over and I finally stopped sulking about the house with the Blues and decided to reflect on 2016 and think about what I learnt. (Turns out not that much - it took forever to write this blog post. Nearly a month, if we're being picky.)

3 Bras: Rating & Slating

Sunday, 22 January 2017

The Women's March has just been. I wish I had gone, but I didn't, so instead I thought I would write a jokey blog post on different bra types to encourage the feminist feels currently circulating online. Despite this being a satirical blog post, I hope everybody really takes into account what the Women's March was all about and how important it is that we rock our sexuality and don't allow men to ever make us feel anything less than 100% equal to themselves. It feels like we've gone back 100 years by having someone like Trump elected as President, but the good news is that it can only get better from here. (Because it honestly can't get any worse.)
 Without further adieu..
