Hidden Heart

I think showing affection and love for others should be something we all do everyday. Yes, Valentine's Day is muted to be for couples, but I've never bought into that and have never (whether in a relationship or not) really celebrated. I love telling the people in my life that I adore them whatever the day, but being that it was Valentine's Day a few days ago, it allowed me an excuse to wear the prettiest red dress by Lovedrobe for Simply Be.  Dress: Lovedrobe (via Simply Be ) Cardigan: H&M (Burgundy currently out of stock online) Tights: Boots Shoes: Dorothy Perkins^ I wore this to take a little trip to Nottingham to see my dear friend Charlotte . I hadn't seen her since November so was super excited to see her, and thankfully, the weather stayed dry for lots of exploring around the city. We had a yummy meal when I arrived, then we jumped on bus to do some window shopping and research for Charlottes MA. I'm really looking forward

To Be Visible: Why Minorities Are Still Left Out In The Shade

Foreword: This post has been a few months in the making and I actually submitted this as a piece for a magazine; although it wasn't picked up, it was still a topic I very much wanted to discuss. It hadn't been talked about in so long so I wanted to bring it back to the forefront of everyone's mind, but then boom, suddenly everyone was talking and posting about it and I felt a little deflated. I thought about not posting any longer as I felt others would inevitably write the piece better, but then I thought "my opinion is just as valid as others", so here I am contributing my two-cents. Please note that this isn't attacking anyone, but I really think it's important to not be afraid of having uncomfortable conversations like this as it's the only way things will change. This also isn't going to read as a magazine article as I'm not a journalist and thus, do not wrote that way. It's not a style of writing I personally enjoy reading
