It's been a while since my last blog post and a lot has changed over the last few months. My previous posts were all about being a graduate and how I was coping with the shock of the real world.

We have good relationships with several agencies in London, and there is often a feeling that the industry is big enough to sustain us all. But, occasionally, I meet people who seem to go out of their way to destroy our small agency.

Shoppers these days are as likely to get blisters on their thumbs from swiping a screen or clicking a mouse as they are to get them on their heels from traipsing around crowded streets.

Take a peek inside your wardrobe. Do you have any leather gloves or belts? Leather handbags or wallets? Unless you are a long-time vegan, you probably have something made of leather. If so, then now may be the time to bury that dead skin. As a new investigation has revealed, those leather accessories might have been made from man's best friend.

I'm a firm believer that being positive is always a bigger win, personally and professionally, than being negative. Looking on the bright side, seeing the glass half full, trusting that every cloud has a silver lining - they may well feel like clichés but they fundamentally lie at the heart of the way I choose to live.

After upsetting Binky, I was ostracised from the girl group and felt like I had no one to turn to other than Alex and Jamie for advice. It wasn't a malicious action. It wasn't a back-stabbing or two-faced decision. When Alex and Binky were together I was disgusted at the way he behaved.

Well last night got heated! Not one, not two, but three people crying (and I'm not a pretty crier). So why did I stay in Sam's bed that night?

Being a 21st Century feminist can come with many contradictions. I'm a feminist, but I love Gossip Girl, the main storyline of which is an essentially abusive relationship (Chuck and Blair). I'm a feminist, but I listen to Childish Gambino. I'm a feminist, but if I choose to get married, I want my father to walk me down the aisle.
