Black Friday has come and gone, with a fast fashion brand selling items for free and a luxury fashion retailer offering 40% off, let’s now reflect on whether or not it’s actually worth it. Over the years Black Friday has grown from a one day in store event to sales that can now last for the entire month of…

Stranger - "So, when are you going to have children then?" Me - "Umm..."   This is a topic I have never touched on before - children. This can be a delicate subject for some, especially those who dream of having children of their own. So this post may not be for some women/men.   I started writing this post…

Clip from And Just Like That

Sex and the City fans across the globe are gearing up for the legendary show’s spin-off, And Just Like That, which will be hitting our screens in December. The show following the lives of four single (and fabulous) New York women, was a gamechanger on its release in 1998, not just for television but society as a whole. We were…

Trigger warning: This topic discusses eating disorders and may be sensitive to some readers.   I remember when I first walked into the GP’s office of my university’s medical practice.
