5 Ways To Be Happy When You're Feeling Low

Even with the sun shining bright and the days becoming warmer and lovely, there are still times when we feel a bit down. It's inevitable. No matter how bright the world seems now that we have sweet sunny evenings, there will still be days where we want to close the blinds and not allow any of the light to come in. On these days we'll probably want to curl up in bed and watch Netflix all day with a pot of ice cream, and although that is the perfect cure for a bad day in some cases, for me personally I feel defeated when I'm not productive. That's why I've compiled a little list of ways to make ourselves feel a bit better on down days and hopefully these tips will help you as much as they help me!

Body Confidence & Self Love

 
Loving yourself and the body you're in takes time. It's not a way of thinking that you can adopt overnight, it takes a lot of practice. We are constantly hounded with images in magazines, on television and even on social media that represent the way that we, as women, "should look". These images will often feature white women with long blonde or brown hair with a thin frame and toned body. Pitching the concept of  this 'ideal' beauty standard to the world can make people who don't have these features feel like failures and often strive to perfect themselves. Rather than the message the media currently portrays about 'ideal' beauty standards, we should be promoting the message to love your body no matter what features you do or don't possess.  

Why We Should All Be Feminists


 
I am a feminist. I have identified as such since I was sixteen and first introduced the reality of our lives as women. Before this age I would often feel confused as to why I wasn’t allowed to play baseball with the boys in PE and had to play softball instead or why it was only the girls that were ever asked by our elderly male art teacher to clean the paint pots after class. I wondered, but I never questioned it.

London Fashion Week - Haluminous AW17

 
This weekend I attended London Fashion Week. It was the first time I had ever been and it definitely an exciting experience! Luckily, I was able to see a couple of shows as well as being able to appreciate the incredible street style from the outside. Haluminous Autumn/Winter 17 was one of the shows I was lucky enough to see.
