This weekend i encountered my first piece of negativity with regards to my blog. Sure you could say i am lucky that in what, three years, that this is the first time that i have been met with a hateful comment. It’s funny that it is considered luck when in reality why is this even a thing? I am the firmest believer in freedom of speech and love hearing other peoples thoughts and opinions on things. I draw the line at offensive , abusive and down right nasty words though. That my friends has no place on public forums or indeed in life. As my mother always says ” if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at…

I get asked a lot about my blog name. Mostly people get what the F stands for and are interested in how i came up with the name or why i chose it. Fashion is my first love. When i think about it, it is all i know and all I’ve ever done really. So with that being said i would hope the F would be a self explanatory play on words. There are others though who get deep about it and I suppose on a subconscious level there was more to it. I have gone backwards and forwards with this one for the longest time. This has been a huge part of me and for a long time it…

I had shingles at the time of my last one so i remember it well.

That being said my opinions have not changed on this subject whatsoever. Infact a few things have happened that have pushed me to have my say on the matter. Christmas is just around the corner. Yes that is the first C-bomb I’ve dropped so you know shit’s getting serious. This time of year everybody is looking for presents for their loved ones. Hell you even gotta treat yourself. Money is tight. People just don’t have what they used to but they and…

Us ladies rock. Being a feminist has a certain stigma attached to it though. There isn’t always that much support for each other either. Not in a burning our bra’s and plaiting our leg hair kind of way. Instead i like to think of the positives of modern day women absolutely killing it in this sometimes brutal world. We drew the short straw biologically with the whole peeing sitting down and womb falling out every 28 days thing. That is before hormones and emotions. Who hasn’t cried when there is no milk in the fridge? Even when they don’t like milk. See it’s tough at the top. And at the top is where i’m going with this one. So even with…
