I’m a big fan of crime films and it’s hard to pick which decade has the best ones, but for me personally the 90’s takes the cake. I love the style of storytelling and the advancements of filming in this era, and the rise in new actors is really cool to look back on, so I have narrowed down my favourites to just six and I’d love to know if you agree or disagree! Seven (Se7en) A 1996 psychological crime film directed by David Fincher, with screenplay written by Andrew Kevin Walker. The story follows Detective William Somerset and Detective…

Your period cycle increases and decreases hormones at different times within the cycle, meaning that certain exercises are more suited for certain days. I found these websites: Sweat , Byrdie, Fatherly, and Healthline really useful for understanding the different phases and workouts. The menstrual phase – week 1 This phase is the week of your actual period. This is when blood flow, hormones, and pain are most common and typically last between 3 and 7 days. Day 1 is when your oestrogen and progesterone levels are at their lowest throughout the entire cycle, along with the sudden loss of blood,…

I’ve been living in London for just over 2 months now and moving here has given me a new perspective on this beautiful city.

I’m pretty lucky in the fact that I got a job quite soon after university and was able to live at my mum’s house until I wanted to move out. During this time, I saved…

Photo: PreLovedKilo What are they? Vintage kilo sales are a new way of shopping for unused clothes. People donate their old, unused clothes to an organisation that then sells them off at the sale, pricing at the weight of each kilo. Most clothes are outdated, out of fashion or just unwanted, but with the constant change in fashion trends and the urge to live more sustainably, kilo sales are a great alternative to fast-fashion shopping. Where to find them: Most sales are found online through social media. A great example is Facebook, as it has loads of amazing groups that…
