Sometimes, it’s good to do some housecleaning and there’s simply no time like the present to do…

Running

For a long time, all I did was run,Avoid my feelings, Mask the vulnerability and put on a brave face,Show the face I thought they wanted to see,Be strong, courageous and smile through the self-doubt,I didn’t need anyone, I had myself,No one could disappoint, if I didn’t let them get close enough to,So, I kept…

Being Anti-Racist Is A Lifestyle

I, along with many of you I imagine, have been doing a lot of internal work, assessing what roles we play and have been playing within the conversation around being actively anti-racist; be it accessing your own internal biases and privileges and see hopefully how you/we can do and be better. But if I may…

Our Fashion Favourites

Fashion! Lights! Fashion! So we’re definitely not fashionistas, but we do love to get dressed up (going nude would be illegal) and we like looking cute and stuff. It’s also been a few months since we’ve done a fashion post, so here is another one! On that premise, we thought it would be a nice,…
