If one day I am blessed with a child, I will teach them that there is unique inherent beauty in every single skin colour. That beauty is not confined to complexion, just as their worth is never confined to their physicalities, nor their race or gender.

What is it to be British? What are those peculiarly British traits which set us apart from other nationalities? What is a cliché and what is actually for real? Here is a definitive guide to the basics of being British.

My Pre-London Fashion Week, Supposed, Chill Time...

Whether you love it, hate it or you're not particularly fussed by it, London Fashion Week is totally a big thing. So I reluctantly decided to get involved this season. And, lets be honest, why wouldn't I be into it, with such demanding questions like: "What on earth will I wear?" "But where will I sit?" "Have I lost enough weight to fit into a size zero, built for a child, outfit?"

British Nuclear Bunkers

The idea of living a hermetic subterranean life has its appeal. What if an enforced existence in a bunker became a positive thing - it's a large leap of the imagination but then that is the point of art - what if a post-nuclear dystopia became a post-nuclear utopia.

Let's Stop Saying We Are Full and Deal With the Refugee Crisis

We have to remember those refugees are human beings like us, not cattle. They need our help, they have no homes, food, shelter. Regardless of religious or atheist beliefs - we have to help them it's a mandatory cause that should not even be questioned. Let's do the right thing.

Keep Calm But Alien-Like Giant Jellyfish Are Invading Our Beaches

The Power of Exchanges

There's nothing new or groundbreaking about speaking to people, even in a world of ever-growing virtual interactions. But I think that's what's baffling. If it's so normal and easy (and the benefits outweigh the effort) why aren't we doing it more often?

Countering the ISIS Terror From an Islamic Theological Perspective

Last weekend, 50 young British Muslims converged to the leafy surroundings of Kidderminster to be trained for counter-extremism work. Their purpose was to learn how to weed out emergent religious extremism from its ideological and theological roots, and therefore to prevent young people from being brainwashed into leaving their homes to join barbaric terrorist groups abroad.

That Summer Spa... Penny Hill Park, an Exclusive Hotel and Spa, Bagshot, Surrey.

Gina Lyons | Posted 03.06.2015 | UK Lifestyle
Gina Lyons

The thing is with London finally getting some sun, is that most spas are all very inside-y. We wanted to enjoy the sun and not be kept in whilst still swimming in the heat. Unless you are prepared to go abroad, this is a big ask. Luckily, the spa we chose was perfect for those sunny days.

To Address Poverty, We Need Addresses

Let's be clear: an address is not a "nice-to-have". Without it, you will struggle to get a passport, stake a property claim, become an active consumer, take out a low-interest credit, or run a business.

ABCs of Asian British Culture

As immigrants, Britain's Asians arrived in the UK with a very dislocated culture. Our parents tried desperately to keep us connected to our heritage but it proved too challenging. India was another world and our new lives were British.

I know this isn't just me feeling this way, so please be careful with your words, you could be marginalising an entire population. Really we know you can't help but ask Muslim people their opinion on what are shown by media channels as a Muslim issue. But please discuss other things too.

Unless you've been living inside a black hole since the early 1990s, the allusions to the current referendum must be apparent. For as a child of Britain, unable to affect the potential break up of the United Kingdom on Thursday, the naïve response is to feel this is unfair...

Yes or No, I'm Staying British

Whichever way it goes, I will be challenging myself to remain steady in an idea of global Britishness. I won't be accepting the Scottish nationalists' invitation to think of myself as reduced and obliged to come to terms with my Englishness, but will be working to enhance strong, ongoing narratives about a Britain that embraces and integrates.

In truth I was grateful for all the things that eventually made Britain my home. But I was also angry. Angry for all the hoops I had to jump through to get the same rights as others who were born here, as if begging entry to some exclusive club I wasn't allowed to join even though it was located at my house.

The first amendment in the United States is a wonderful thing. It means you can say whatever you like about anything... But with the increasing popularity of Facebook comment section fights, and chatroom brawls, I'm seeing more and more often that people seem to forget that freedom of speech goes both ways.

Blood Brother: AW14 Collection

Bwoywonder | Posted 22.09.2014 | UK Lifestyle

Blood Brother seemingly gives a nod to the fashion of 80's movie Back To The Future 2, which coincidently was set in 2015. Stylist Max Clark solidifies my claim by using a model with a similar look to the films antagonist Biff Tannan.<
