As we have established in my previous posts - I LOVE Christmas. This year this has filtered right through to my bedding. There's nothing like putting on the Christmas music and decking the halls and why should our bedroom miss out on this? I got this adorable bedding from #ASDA to sprinkle a little Christmas spirit from waking up to going to sleep.

These days, most of us sleep with our phones near us but this is really a habit we should get rid of.


Whether it’s because your phone is the last thing you check at night or the first thing you look at in the morning, or because you use it as an alarm or even as a torch when you wake up at night, research suggests you should stop doing so.

The first and obvious reason for this is that receiving messages and phone calls could wake you and disrupt your sleep rhythm, but it turns out that even putting your phone on silent can have negative effects on your sleep.

This is because mobile phones emit blue-light which can hinder the production of melatonin (the sleep-inducing hormone). It is mostly thought that this is happens because blue-light is similar to daylight, which leads our body to think it’s day time and therefore that we shouldn’t be sleeping.

But even if you switch your phone off entirely, excess exposure to the electromagnetic radiation given off by phones might lead to cancers and have negative effects on reproductive systems. The exact relationship is not yet clear, but one’s thing for sure: the more you can avoid exposing yourself to unnecessary radiation, the better!

So try turning your phone off tonight, and make sure you store it away outside your room! Sweet dreams…

LFW is the fashion industry's favourite week of the year, but it is also the most frantic and exhausting. This combination of too much caffeine, not enough sleep, heels, queuing and dashing between shows means that Editors across the board have a lot of funny anecdotes. It's chaos. Often fun, glamorous chaos. Often not. It's not actually possible for Editors to be in five places at once, if we could we would. So this results in frantically running around Soho whilst trying to Snapchat, Instagram and write reports. While also trying to not be caught red face and puffing by street style photographers. 


1. “Once, a colleague and I were queueing in the rain for a show that was running 40 minutes late. A faux fur clad lady in pointed satin slingbacks toting a mock croc handbag introduced herself to us as a freelance stylist and proceeded to regale us with tales about her assistant’s ability to worm her way backstage at any show. We swapped cards and later that evening, came across said stylist inside the show venue, crying as she sat on the steps of the main staircase.

She explained that she’d promised a PR contact she’d be at the show just gone but was refused entry on grounds that she was late and they were over capacity. She tearfully pleaded with us to send her photos of the show we’d snapped so she could pretend she’d been in attendance. We offered some kind words and sent her a couple of sub-par images but despite explaining that her PR contact probably [actually, MOST DEFINITELY] wouldn’t care she hadn’t made it, her tears ceased to flow the moment she downloaded the pictures. 

Pawing at her tear-streaked mascara, she suddenly stood upright at the arrival of her photographer beau, with whom she invited us to attend an after party. We politely declined and made our own way to dinner."

2. "What really annoys me are girls who have seats look at you like you're a peasant when you ask them to move up. You don't own the row of chairs"

3. "Every PR contact you've ever had will suddenly become your BFF. That woman you met once 2 years ago will send you five emails a day calling you 'babes' and saying how much they want to 'catch up'. You know they are just trying to fill out their event, but you go along with it because you know, goodie bags"

4. "Back in the days when I was an editor's assistant, she'd make me call around and plea for her to be seated on the FROW otherwise she wouldn't attend. It was very embarrassing, particularly because she wasn't as important as she liked to think. Very awks." 

5. "A friend of mine had handed her business card to a woman, and they had a chat about which shows they were going to attend. When my friend was told for the second time that she had already checked in somewhere she asked them to describe what the person looked like and pieced it together. This woman had been using my friend's business card to get into shows! Note to self: don't trust anyone, fashionistas can be cut throat". 

6) “While interning many LFW seasons ago, a friend and I were given two invites to attend a show for a well-known designer by our supervisor. Given that we were industry nobodies, we were unabashed at forcing our way through the crowds and plopped ourselves down in the second row so as to be on the receiving end of what appeared to be a substantial goodie bag. 

The goodie bag was substantial indeed. And while there were no new season sunglasses or iPods (goodie bags post 2010 just don’t compete), a vibrant embossed cushion featuring the fashion house’s name pleased us to no end. Squealing with delight, we plotted how to nab a few more of them before leaving. 

Those around us glanced our way with disapproving glares as we shoved cushions left, right, and centre into our tote bags from the empty chairs beside us (apparently, it’s FROW or nothing for some). Escaping from the clutches of any hawk-eyed PRs, we left quietly into the night. Months later, we saw the same embossed cushion being sold on eBay. If only we hadn’t grown attached to them in our shared flats…"

7) "There are so many crazy things I've witnessed at fashion week, but one that stands out is when a brawl almost started. If you're late to a show, you expect to stand as your seat has probably been taken. Some girls didn't take too well to this and began shoving the people in front of them, so they could see better (or, in other words, take better Instagram pics). This escalated as the girls in front, quite understandably, didn't like getting elbowed in the back. Security had to come over and ask them to calm it."

Time Magazine just named Trump their 'Person of the Year', don't spit out your tea, this isn't a joke. The article, which you can read here, is very well written by Michael Scherer, and you almost find yourself understanding his point- but then it dawned on me, the main reason this article is palatable is because Trump's voice is barely heard within it. Which is odd, for a piece which is all about him. But no, instead what you can hear is logic, statistics, ideology and philosophy- with the odd quote from the President Elect thrown in for good measure.

It's easy to make something sound plausible or even positive when it's dressed up enough, statistics of unemployment and the Obama administration's failings try and persuade you that Trump's election is understandable. 

Scherer writes that Trump's campaign was "not a campaign about the effects of tariffs on the price of batteries or basketball shoes. He spoke only of winning and losing, us and them, the strong and the weak. Trump is a student of the tabloids, a master of television. He had moonlighted as a professional wrestler. He knew how to win the crowd. First he needed to define the bad guys. Then he needed to knock them over". 

This statement is true- Trump did play the media into his hand, he uses sensationalist language to win support, but this isn't the issue. Yes, it makes people feel defeated that such showmanship can win over actual merit, but the problem lies more in how and who Trump defines as 'the bad guys'. How he gets people to agree with him is a lesser issue, it's what he's trying to get them to agree with that is scary for a lot of Americans, particularly the minorities. 

Time magazine understand this fear, and the validity of this fear that many hold. But they also understand why Clinton's campaign, and its want to condemn this political darkness, was its biggest downfall. "By seeking to condemn the dark side of politics, Clinton's campaign may have accidentally validated it. By believing in the myth that Obama's election represented a permanent shift for the nation, they proved it was ephemeral. In the end, Trump revealed in these denunciations, which helped him market to his core supporters his determination to smash the existing elite". 

The article finishes on a note of uncertainty "the truth is no one really knows what is going to happen, up to and including the occupants of Trump Tower. 'It's a very exciting time. It's been an amazing time' Trump says, as the country still tries to come to terms with what he accomplished. 'Hopefully we can take some of the drama out'." 

This drama is unlikely to die down, because it was Trump who built his campaign on drama and won because of it. The phrase "you made your bed now sleep in it" springs to mind- because this climate he's created and egged on, where "white supremacists throw out Nazi salutes in Washington meeting halls for their President-elect" is now his mess to run. 

Scherer finishes with this line "It's an America of renewed hope and paralysing fear, a country few expected less than a year ago. Because of Donald John Trump, whatever happens next, it will never be like it was before".

On the surface this piece makes me angry, but when you reach the end it feels comforting- Trump is our person of the year, whether we like it or not, because he's the new president-elect of America. This is the truth, no matter how uncomfortable. 

Time Magazine naming Trump their 'Person of the Year' is apt. It's sensationalised, click-bait and misleading- just like Trump's political tactics.

A study led by Nottingham Trend University last year showed the average person checks their phone 85 times a day. While this figure came as a surprise to participants (aged 18-33) who believed they checked their phone much less, it’s likely those on a mission to “stalk”- think crushes, frenemies, colleagues, or even old school pals- check them way, way, more.


Twitter, Snapchat, and Instagram are useful for getting a glimpse into a person’s daily life but as we all know, the pictures, videos, status updates, and links shared on those platforms are usually part of a carefully curated image we’d like others to correlate with us.

This makes Facebook the perfect spy's accomplice; with the majority of one’s close (and not-so-close) social circles linked to their profile, Mark Zuckerberg has basically given us permission to get up all in someone's private business. 

Reckon you may be getting in too deep with your FB stalking? Here are 6 signs you’re a bonafide addict...

1) You take every possible opportunity to check said person’s FB profile for updates be it in bed, at work, under the table in a meeting, on your cigarette/coffee break, while your out, while you’re in, and of course, on the loo. Public and private spheres make no difference to you. 

2)  You’ve started seeing someone and they’ve nonchalantly accepted your friend request. You play it cool in person (and when you text) but the moment you get the chance, you scour through their uploaded/tagged photos from present day all the way back to 2007 to find out what their exes look like.

3) You get word that Big Sarah from school “got hot.” Whether or not you were the sympathetic PE partner or the b*tch from hell, you want to reconnect (i.e. ride on the back of Sarah’s makeover success). Prior to reaching out however, you bide your time and spend each waking minute researching what she’s been up to over the years and seeing which old flames or classmates she’s been socialising with lately.

4) You’ve just had an interview for the job of your dreams and found out you share a mutual friend with the hiring manager on FB...which means that thanks to your lax privacy settings, they may have seen what you REALLY got up to last weekend. Banging your head against the wall as you adjust who’s able to view your tagged photos, you later spend your evening scrolling through ALL of their FB pics in the hope they too share a passion for playing strip Twister.

5) You’re back home for the holidays and single AF. Your Tinder matches are showing a horrifying number of matches with dozens of mutual connections and just to double check they’re in no way, shape, or form in regular contact with anyone who saw you projectile vomit at your BFF’s Sweet Sixteen, you spend hours trying to guess their last name so you can find them on FB. You know you’re in deep. 

6) You can’t eat (you wish), you can’t sleep (your own fault), and if anyone were to discover the true extent of your FB stalking madness, they’d call you out for being obsessive. Your fear of being discovered manically FB stalking heavily outweighs the dreaded FOMO so you’ve developed a flawless facade to convince everyone around you that you’re like, super chill.

On November 9th, the day after the US Presidential Election, Oscar-winning screenwriter Aaron Sorkin - a writer for The Social Network, West Wing, The News Room, and Moneyball - penned a touching letter to his daughter.


Weirdly, he addressed it to "Sorkin Girls," though he just has the one daughter, 15-year-old Roxy. We think he meant to include his ex-wife, laywer Julia Bingham? He should have double-checked his letter for typos, since Julia is neither a Sorkin nor a girl. Anyway, the letter is an emotional reminder to always keep fighting inequalities, even in the face of stunning defeats. 

Sorkin is a noted Democrat. He routinely donates money to Democrat candidates, and was part of the anti-Bush campaign in 2004, teaming up with MoveOn, along with Rob Reiner, to do commercials.  

He was a supporter of Obama, and is sad to see him go (as are millions of Americans!) But what's more tragic is his elected replacement, Trump. Trump has been preaching hate, and his public vitriol has brought out the worst in America.  

However, Americans are pushing back against hate! Instead of focusing on the awful things that the president elect has promised to do, many people are choosing to spend their energy on positive things.  

In dark times, it's important to seek out the happy things in life and not let yourself get too bummed out. True, the national election has gone down a dark road, but local elections have seen some wonderful changes around the country, and it's lovely to see people standing up to support each other.

Roxy is just 15, but she's already politically aware, and has posted pro-Bernie sentiments on her Instagram. She's pretty typical of her generation, since teens are becoming more involved in politics. In fact, of voters aged 18-25, the overwhelming majority voted blue! This means that as time marches forward, we'll see fewer Trumps elected. How's that for a bright side?

Give Sorkin's letter a read below, and feel free to post your opinion in the comments! If you're feeling inspired, shop the classic Sorkin look - including iconic glasses - below...

Sorkin Girls,

Well the world changed late last night in a way I couldn’t protect us from. That’s a terrible feeling for a father. I won’t sugarcoat it—this is truly horrible. It’s hardly the first time my candidate didn’t win (in fact it’s the sixth time) but it is the first time that a thoroughly incompetent pig with dangerous ideas, a serious psychiatric disorder, no knowledge of the world and no curiosity to learn has.

And it wasn’t just Donald Trump who won last night—it was his supporters too. The Klan won last night. White nationalists. Sexists, racists and buffoons. Angry young white men who think rap music and Cinco de Mayo are a threat to their way of life (or are the reason for their way of life) have been given cause to celebrate. Men who have no right to call themselves that and who think that women who aspire to more than looking hot are shrill, ugly, and otherwise worthy of our scorn rather than our admiration struck a blow for misogynistic shitheads everywhere. Hate was given hope. Abject dumbness was glamorized as being “the fresh voice of an outsider” who’s going to “shake things up.” (Did anyone bother to ask how? Is he going to re-arrange the chairs in the Roosevelt Room?) For the next four years, the President of the United States, the same office held by Washington and Jefferson, Lincoln and Teddy Roosevelt, F.D.R., J.F.K. and Barack Obama, will be held by a man-boy who’ll spend his hours exacting Twitter vengeance against all who criticize him (and those numbers will be legion). We’ve embarrassed ourselves in front of our children and the world.

And the world took no time to react. The Dow futures dropped 700 points overnight. Economists are predicting a deep and prolonged recession. Our NATO allies are in a state of legitimate fear. And speaking of fear, Muslim-Americans, Mexican-Americans and African-Americans are shaking in their shoes. And we’d be right to note that many of Donald Trump’s fans are not fans of Jews. On the other hand, there is a party going on at ISIS headquarters. What wouldn’t we give to trade this small fraction of a man for Richard Nixon right now?

So what do we do?

First of all, we remember that we’re not alone. A hundred million people in America and a billion more around the world feel exactly the same way we do.

Second, we get out of bed. The Trumpsters want to see people like us (Jewish, “coastal elites,” educated, socially progressive, Hollywood…) sobbing and wailing and talking about moving to Canada. I won’t give them that and neither will you. Here’s what we’ll do…

…we’ll fucking fight. (Roxy, there’s a time for this kind of language and it’s now.) We’re not powerless and we’re not voiceless. We don’t have majorities in the House or Senate but we do have representatives there. It’s also good to remember that most members of Trump’s own party feel exactly the same way about him that we do. We make sure that the people we sent to Washington—including Kamala Harris—take our strength with them and never take a day off.

We get involved. We do what we can to fight injustice anywhere we see it—whether it’s writing a check or rolling up our sleeves. Our family is fairly insulated from the effects of a Trump presidency so we fight for the families that aren’t. We fight for a woman to keep her right to choose. We fight for the First Amendment and we fight mostly for equality—not for a guarantee of equal outcomes but for equal opportunities. We stand up.

America didn’t stop being America last night and we didn’t stop being Americans and here’s the thing about Americans: Our darkest days have always—always—been followed by our finest hours.

Roxy, I know my predictions have let you down in the past, but personally, I don’t think this guy can make it a year without committing an impeachable crime. If he does manage to be a douche nozzle without breaking the law for four years, we’ll make it through those four years. And three years from now we’ll fight like hell for our candidate and we’ll win and they’ll lose and this time they’ll lose for good. Honey, it’ll be your first vote.

The battle isn’t over, it’s just begun. Grandpa fought in World War II and when he came home this country handed him an opportunity to make a great life for his family. I will not hand his granddaughter a country shaped by hateful and stupid men. Your tears last night woke me up, and I’ll never go to sleep on you again.

Love, Dad

With the super busy lives we all lead nowadays, everyone struggles to manage work life with socialising. Either that, or sometimes work or college can be so demanding that you find yourself working through the night without getting any shut-eye! 


So, here are some quick tips on how to look as fresh as possible after having a sleepless night. 

The teabag hack 
Lack of sleep = puffy eyes and under-eyes. Steep some teabags in water, squeeze out the excess liquid, and chuck them in the fridge to cool while you take a shower. Once you're done showering, grab the cooled teabags and place them on your eyes. Bye-bye, puffiness! 

The ice hack  
Our skin can look dull, lifeless, and just overall meh the morning after you haven't slept. For a quick fix, run an ice cube over your face. This will temporarily brighten and tighten. 

The brightening concealer hack 
To get rid of those pesky under-eye bags, use a little bit of a peach colour corrector, and top it off with a concealer that is one shade lighter than your skin tone for an instant brightening effect. 

The nude/white eye pencil hack 
Ditch your usual kajal, and line your lower waterline with a nude or white eyeliner pencil. You will be amazed at how much this helps to make you look awake! 

The eye makeup hacks  
Besides using a lighter coloured eyeliner pencil, there are two more things that can instantly help you look fresh and awake. One, use a volumising mascara. It will help to make your eyes look more open. Second, use a shimmery highlighter or eyeshadow to highlight the inner corners of your eyes.

Nowadays, a combination of factors like stress, pollution, sleep deprivation, hormonal imbalances, and unhealthy eating can wreak havoc on one's skin and cause the most dreaded skin problem: acne.  


But you don't need to continue living with this pain-in-the-you-know-where! Simply follow our tips and you'll be on your way to clear skin. 

(P.S.: All products mentioned in our tips are available in our edit below.)  

If you have dandruff, treat it  
Dandruff can fall on your face, neck, and back, and cause acne. Yikes! So if you suffer from dandruff, treating it is the first step to getting rid of your acne. 

Our favourite anti-dandruff shampoo is the Sebamed Shampoo for Oily Dandruff-Prone Scalp. If you prefer a more natural method, use aloe vera gel on your scalp. 

Head to your gynaec 
Often, hormonal imbalances and issues like Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS—a super common problem amongst Indian women) can cause acne that is immune to external treatments.

So head to your gynaecologist, and ask them to screen you for these issues in case they're responsible for your zits. 

Use products meant for acne-prone skin  
The best way to keep your skin happy is to use products that are specially designed for it, and this applies to acne too! Our favourite wash for acne-prone skin is the Natio Acne Clear Pores face wash. 

Get smart about quick remedies 
While acne is no doubt something that needs to be treated in the long term, sometimes you just need to get rid of that one zit because you have somewhere to be! For this, you can swab the zit with tea tree oil to dry it out. 

Be careful and only apply it on the zit, though, because tea tree oil is strong and pretty drying. 

Give your skin regular TLC  
It's only natural that taking regular care of your skin will keep it healthy, so get on that TLC game stat! 

Once a week, use a a face mask that's meant to target acne—our pick is the Ancient Living Anti-Pimple, an all-natural option. 

You can also use an overnight repair treatment meant to get rid of pimples, like the Natio Acne Clear Night moisture treatment.
