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.

Big Boobs, Big Issues

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.

Walking in Heels

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.

Last night was the premiere of the short film I produced and co-directed. 'Flame' was shot over two manic days in May (with two of my models) and was finally ready to reveal to friends and colleagues at a private screening in Central London. I was a bit nervous, but the event was a big success.

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. What you buy for winter needs to be heavy duty and high quality, as you'll be living in these clothes day in day out over the next several months.

Even as a big-busted size 12 or 14 - shopping for elegant winter clothes can be near impossible, and I imagine it gets harder and harder as the size chart goes up. I'm a size 16 and I find most chunky knits make me look like a cotton wool ball with legs.

There have been no fridge doctors or crazy cold-turkey approaches to eating. What there has been is a growing interest in living a better life, but not just for me - I've seen a real sea-change of attitude towards the way we are all living our lives. Mine in part, I have to confess, has all been wrapped up with my slight obsession with social media. I'm an Insta-junkie.

I'll admit I was a little late to the Girls party. But once I arrived, I partied HARD, watching all three seasons in the space of a week. The finale marked a Lena Dunham-shaped hole in my life, which I have partially filled with her new autobiography Not That Kind of Girl, but by and large I remain pining for season 4 to hit our screens next year.

Intolerance breeds intolerance and laws that allow bigotry and racism as though they were a part and parcel of society are exactly the thing that encourages such attitudes. When we look at injustices far and wide it's so easy to express distaste but we must look closer to home and deal with the injustices and attitudes that are being imposed.

The collaborations between the street and the high-end represent a change in the business of fashion. Amelia Groom in her essay on Japan's contemporary street fashion culture observes that 'change in fashion has often been explained as a 'trickle-down' effect of class imitation followed by class aversion.'

Even though I have worked in the media industry for over 15 years, I totally understand how confusing it is to women when they are presented with the trends for fall, in other words autumn the following year when they have not even experienced the season this year!
