Some of these top travel blogs are jam-packed full of beautiful imagery (nothing better to whisk you away from your office desk for a few minutes!) and others are beautiful descriptive narratives, you'll want to re-read again and again.

Is Blending in the New Black?

"To be irreplaceable, one must always be different", said Coco Chanel. But with the current vogue for 'reality dressing' being played out on the streets and down the catwalks, it seems that it's 'indifference' which is the order of the day.

It's September, which in the world of high fashion heralds the start of spring! Yes, it's that time of the year when the industry's great and good embark on their whirlwind tour of the four fashion capitals, to witness first hand what designers have in store for us next season.

Secrets and Lives

It takes courage, someone commented to me once, to send your observations out into the ether of the blog. Anyone could read it, whether they know you in 'real life' or not, and judge you or criticize you or think you're very strange. Almost worse, perhaps, nobody will read it at all...

Blogging at the Notting Hill Carnival...

For those of you who missed out on the Notting Hill Carnival this year, you missed out on an absolute corker! There was the odd bit of trouble, drunken behaviour and an alarming number of butt cheeks on display - and I don't mean the performers.

Why I Am Going to the Notting Hill Carnival...

The carnival has changed. For my parents, it was a place where they could assert their duality - as Jamaicans living in England. For me and my sibling, it was an opportunity to wave a Jamaican flag alongside others, whilst pretending we were in the Caribbean. Now, the carnival feels like a great big raucous party.

Burger Blind Date at TGI's...

The night rounded off with what could only be the most embarrassing and funny thing in the whole of TGI's... receiving our burger face pictures. Earlier on a guy came around snapping pictures of us making our 'burger faces' before we tucked into the delicious food. You can see my stunning burger face below...

Sporadic Blogging is Better

Those of you who know me and/or like to read my blog frequently will know that, since the start of this year, I've tried to keep this blog updated with a post every week. I felt like producing regular content more frequently would lead to a bigger readership and more relevant writing.

How do you make programmes about books that people actually want to watch? And who - or what - should fill the gap left by the absence of books on mainstream TV? Macmillan clearly hope they've found the answer

Dealing with Internet Hate: Ten Tips

Gregor Smith | Posted 22.03.2014 | UK Universities & Education
Gregor Smith

When I wrote last week's blog post, about why antifeminism ought to be viewed in a better light, I expected it to be controversial (although I wrote it because I thought it needed to be said, not because of any desire to 'be controversial'). This led to tweets from people on both sides of the debate... So, whether you're a fellow blogger, a standard Facebook or Twitter user, or even a politician, here are my personal tips for dealing with the anger of the internet.

Will Social Media Make Theatre Press Nights Redundant?

As soon as a show opens - the first preview night, not press night - you can read all about it on Twitter and Facebook. Yet press review conventions have remained. Tweet about it all you want but news outlets are requested to review only from press night onwards.

'No Nuke's': We Shouldn't Let the Diplomatic Barking and Growling Deflect Us From Iran's Atrocious Human Rights Record

I can't help wondering what six Kurdish men currently facing execution in Ghezel Hesar Prison near Tehran might think of the praise being heaped on Rouhani? Like numerous other condemned prisoners in Iran, they face the gallows after being convicted of vaguely-worded offences, including "enmity against God" and "corruption on earth".

Big Brother - Week 6 Opinion

For the first time this series, I'm genuinely gutted with this week's eviction outcome. Another twist that took place last week has essentially backfired again, leading to the eviction of the alpha-male in the house.

The problem with blogging is that it's so much harder than essay writing. Yes, I know. "But how can it be when you can write anything?" Well, that's exactly the point. There's just so much to write about.

Why JLS Did the Right Thing

Matthew Davies | Posted 28.06.2013 | UK Entertainment
Matthew Davies

For four years JLS followed a formulaic schedule of a lead single release every summer, followed by a less radio friendly ballad in the final quarter of the year, allowing their follow-up conveyor belt 12-track album to be released just in time for Christmas upon the peak of its momentum.

Why 'The Voice' Is Flawed

Matthew Davies | Posted 20.06.2013 | UK Entertainment

The problem with The Voice is that it's full of double standards and contradictions, shifting notably from what the shows principles were initially laid out to stand for.

Suspicious Street Style: Why I Hate the Hipsters

Okay, first things first: I don't actually hate the hipsters. That would be a little too far. But, what I do have a problem with, is fashion's current fixation with street style.
