    Let’s Talk About Relationships

    Much like my ‘Being Mixed Race’ post, this topic has been floating around my drive for a while and I’ve been wanting to write about it for ages. Since starting the ‘Let’s Talk About…’ series, I’ve been thinking about what topics I can write about and thought this is the perfect opportunity – especially as it has been a while since the last post.

    Let’s Talk About… Blurred Lines

    I don’t often engage in social commentary on my blog and I feel like I should do this more. I always love having an open discussion and see how other people react – makes life just a little bit more interesting. How many of you have heard the song Blurred Lines by Robin Thicke feat. T.I. & Pharrell? No? View the video above and let me know your thoughts on the song. Let me know what was the first thing that came to into your head when you viewed it. Today, at work, I was reading this article on the Guardian. It basically spoke about how a whole of people are in…
