Freedom splurging. Revenge spending. There’s a lot of talk about the kind of money we’re ready to drop as things begin to return to some state of normalcy.But while the odd new statement candle may not make a major dent in your savings, if you, like us, are teetering on the edge of a major ‘treat yo’ self’ rabbit hole, then you may need to take a step back and reevaluate your approach to shopping. If you’re partial to a change-of-season shopping spree, the best way to make sure you don’t end up
TikTok is the fastest-growing social media app that has captured the attention of over one billion monthly active users.

Safiya* was 19 years old and in her first year of a medicine degree when she started using porn to cope with stress and depression. She’d watch adult content up to four times a day, for hours at a time – something which remained consistent throughout her four years at university. It wasn’t until the final year of her degree that she began to perceive her relationship with porn as problematic. “It wasn’t about feeling good anymore; it was to fulfil a habit, to chase a high,” says Safiya, who is n
The bob is back. For a while it seemed like the shag, wolf cut and mullet had taken over, sweeping the chic, short cut to the sidelines.

The French bob and the sleek, centre-parted bob are incredibly popular styles but searches for the fringed bob are sky-high right now. It might have something to do with our

"Guaranteed, I can blow your mind."
It's been an intense couple of years, eh? Although the pandemic has been taking up most of our thoughts over the past year, that's not to say we've completely forgotten about climate change. We're well acquainted with the pitfalls and environmental consequences of fast fashion but now's the time to start taking a look at fast interiors, fast fashion's homeware counterpart.

And it’s not just the inspired styles that never should’ve been left behind that have resurfaced on our radars, but the more questionable trends, too. In fact, just perusing what today’s stylish celebrities are wearing, it seems the more outlandish elements of the era are the ones making more of a splash — think pin tops, chain belts and itty bitty mini skirts. And though for man
Hello baby bump!
It’s the last week of September and the first week of Mercury’s retrograde transit through Libra. But, with Mercury not only stationing retrograde just two days after Mars in Libra makes a trine to Saturn in Aquarius, but also just one day after the Sun in Libra makes a trine to true node in Gemini, it’s a two-steps forward, one-step back kind of dance — and a decidedly Libran one at that.
