WHY I BLOG? WHY I WRITE? WHY I BREATHE.

Blog’s have become a huge opportunity for writers globally, to communicate within one post. A tool, that can give you freedom to express, describe or translate. The ability to be your own creator. In other words, your own boss. Some writers do it for money, or studies, or for even their work. For me? I do it for passion. Something I’ve never been able to not do. Even if it is writing just a quote a day, or a bunch of lyrics, or a heartfelt essay of collection of thoughts and feelings. It’s almost like breathing to me. IT BECOMES NATURAL. Obviously you need some sort of ability to write a blog, however you do not need to be the best. Just write what you feel, what I usually say. You can always read examples for help, you can find four common styles of writing. Expository, Descriptive, Persuasive, and…

Everyone is after finding that health-craze substitute, lucky enough gives people like me ‘lactose intolerant’ a vast array of options to pick from!

THE RATBITCH EMPOWERMENT

Firstly to point out, this is not about speaking badly about men. This is about the empowerment of women, a topic upon a discussion of the importance of “defying society’s mould of femininity”. Searching into the past in order to reflect upon the future, can teach us peace and understanding. We must empower this generation of women and teach the past what is wrong. This magnificence and connective community Rat Bitch is a perfect example into the confidence, that women and young girls need in today’s society. I’m tough, I’m ambitious, and I know exactly what I want. If that makes me a bitch, okay. – Madonna Ratbitch’s idea is to inflame and set out opportunities to connect to women worldwide, send a message as a safe place to find others. Be a part of a group. . . a community. That will centre around removing “stigmas, taboos, and judgement” , a…

WEAKNESS YOU LEARN FROM

Make no apologies for the weakness you may have, apologise for the force of strength you will give. “Comfort is the enemy of progress” – P.T. Barnum. Words to live by! A moment of weakness is all it takes to fall into a negative cycle. Your growth will oppose your weakness. . . Balance your ideas and plans, learn from them, whether it be your life in London (including other urban cities and secluded countrysides), or financial crisis’s, searching for that new job, with the perfect social life. Pick your battles and signify what means the most to you. HOWEVER, by all means necessary make sure YOU are in every plan and idea. You as a person need to create that healthy mind and body, everyone suffers from that same place, by not being able to picture how on earth they will achieve this? You can! Just pick apart your…

BEING AN INTERNATIONAL STUDENT IN LONDON

Live each day with the breeze of the moment. INTERVIEW Tell Me About Who You Are And Where Your From? Hey! My name is Ilaria Iannarilli, 21 years old. Photography Student at London Metropolitan University. I was born and raised in Rome, Italy but now I live in London. Why Did You Apply To Study In London? The reason why I have applied to study in London, is because there are no opportunities to study anything like photography in my home city. I always felt they do not take it very seriously. For example, here universities give space to pave a way for creative people, while in Italy, they do not get a degree but something more similar to a certificate.  Why Did You Consider This As A Great Opportunity? Living and studying in another country at my age is always a great opportunity, I guess. It’s that time of your…

6 THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT YOUR SKIN

Our skin care methods may differ depending on where we live. Weather and climate are a couple of facts that affect the appearance and health of our skin. Women in London, for example, should take into consideration London’s pollution-filled air and treat their skin accordingly. A polluted complexion may add years to our face and who wants that?! One of the things I regret massively is the fact  that I never listened to my mum when she was telling me how important skin care is. When you are 20, you don’t appreciate what you have. You think that it’s absolutely normal to sleep with your makeup on, never wear sunscreen or face cream just because at that age regardless what you do your skin continues to glow. Unfortunately, it takes a few years and the first fine lines to start putting some effort and start taking care of your skin (at least in…
