The common theme of ‘rebellion’ was apparent across many shows at Paris Fashion Week. Whether this was through up and coming fashion houses like ‘Jacquemus’ setting the standard of what they can get away with, or other designers such as Maria Grazia (creative head of Christian Dior) reflecting on themes of past historic rebellions for inspiration. But Liverpool women have been doing this for years. Except, our fashion week only lasts three days, and it is held at the same venue every year: Aintree racecourse. The rebellion I’m talking about isn’t too much alcohol or the arguments caught on camera, etched into tabloids across the country. It’s the embodiment of resisting the constraints of society and the going against the grain of ‘appropriate’ fashion.
If I belonged to any monarchy, my title by birthright would be Queen of awkwardness. When I say I’m awkward, I don’t mean a bit socially introverted and shy.

Sound familiar? Well, fear no more. Here is my work out advice for girls (and guys) who are as lazy as I am.
You’ve heard it more than you’ve heard ‘fake news’ last year. It’s such a trend right now to cut every one negative off and leave them in 2017, but when no one is left to cut off, what are you gonna do? Should you cut yourself off for complaining about Monday mornings? Here is my guide on how to incorporate the phrase CORRECTLY into your resolutions this 2018.
Doing things on the cheap is a field I have expertise in. I’m the Joanne the Scammer of the blogger world complete with my fur coat. Sometimes, however, you can’t always fake it. Here is a list I’ve compiled of things you should be willing to spend a bit more on, and things you can go cheap on in there for good measure.
You might hear the phrase ‘can’t wait to see the back of this year’ every damn year and be sick to the back teeth of it like at midnight we get ‘2017’ in a box and throw it in the Mersey like it’s a concrete object? Things have been out of my control this year but has this stopped me making the most of what I can control? NO. Here are my four resolutions that I achieved this year.
