Wouldn’t be a true Brit if I didn’t mention the weather each week, would I? But hot damn, it really did get chilly, didn’t it? I’m spending the day eating a roast dinner and planning my best friend’s hen do. Pretty perfect, if I do say so myself. If you’re tucked up under a duvet, looking to sink your teeth into some good reads, here are my top picks from the past 7 days, bundled into one.

Not Guilty

When I read that a man was found notย guilty of raping his wife because he ‘didn’t know he needed consent’, it made my blood boil. In case it needs to be made abundantly clear: anything other than yes means no. Fact.

Gender Roles in the Bedroom

A funny yet truth speaking article about gender roles and threesomes.

The J.O.B

I talked this week about how important a 9-5 can be when it comes to matters of the mind. Of course, it’s all subjective, with some unable to get themselves into work, but if you can, then it might just save you.

Self Harm

When I was younger, I knew a girl who used to self-harm. It really scared me when she first showed me, but I didn’t think to question why she might be doing it. I, in all honesty, assumed it was for attention. Oh, the mind of a 13-year-old. So tragic that so many young women are doing it.

Infidelity: The Last Remaining Taboo

Cheating has been a part of my life since I was a teenager. It’s nothing new. I think most people would say the same, so why can’t we talk about it?

Teaching Kids About Consent

I don’t like the notion that teaching little ones about consent is ‘radical’. I think it’s more ‘crucial’ if you ask me.

The Big O

Female orgasms are a thing of fairytales for some women. Or perhaps most women, judging by these stats.

A Millennial Railcard

Hallelujah! The gods have finally realised we millennials are poor af and have offered up a discount card for rail travel. I only get to enjoy a year of use, though. Sob.

Transitional Styling with Megan Ellaby

Another week, another mention of Megan, my blogger of the moment. If you’re struggling to transition your wardrobe, read her advice. She’s a pro.

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday and have a good week, everyone!
