The notion that men should fear the end of sexism is as absurd and repellent as the notion that white people should fear the end of racism, or straight people should fear the end of homophobia. But should David Cameron fear feminism? Well probably yes.

In that moment, I realized I have two wardrobes: the one that fits me now. And the one that will hopefully fit again in a few weeks / months. Maybe you have the same. Funny, I'm not remotely a follower of fashion, and am thus not remotely interested in whether The Second Wardrobe as I will from now on call it, will drift out of fashion in the months (or years) that it is (not literally) mothballed.

What exactly constitutes an 'essential'? If you go by Waitrose's suggestions, it's everything from raw prawns and hummus to yum yums, so I'm guessing it's pretty subjective.

My sister began working at a multinational professional services firm earlier this year. Upon returning to Australia last month I immediately noticed that she had transformed from a university student to a chic graduate. With a hair never out of place and lips never free from red lipstick she seems to be happier and healthier than ever before.

From the age of 14, when my breasts started to rapidly develop overnight, shopping became more of a monthly chore than an addictive pleasure. I quickly realised I was no longer able to buy clothes for a girl my age as sixteen year olds aren't meant to have boobs as big as your buxom granny's.

And I don't. Heels aren't vital for goodness sake. But freedom is. And being in denial that I'm making any aspect of my world smaller than it needs to be, out of fear is inexcusable. I know better than that. I can do better than that.

Not sure where to start? Well, let's go with how to go about shopping for your winter looks. When it comes to shopping there's always this preconceived idea with students that 'cheaper is better' which isn't always true.
