GET UPDATES FROM Sadie Brown
 
Sadie Brown is a British writer, author and aspiring columnist. Her unique, current voice teamed with a cutting honesty and signature wry humour, has gained her prime writing spots within fashion, lifestyle and female centric platforms, along with brand collaborations.

Positions on The Conversation with Amanda de Cadenet, The Women Take Over and PURPLE magazine are among her growing portfolio; she also steps back in front of the camera from time to time playing celebrity interviewer for various projects.

Another project in progress is her first book ‘A Diary of Wrongness’. Much anticipated by her readers, this deeply personal diary is inspired by a real life relationship. Her unsettling experiences are poured into text in a powerfully graphic way that leaves the reader roaring with laughter one minute, then collecting their jaws from disbelief the next; it is a pure roller coaster ride of a read.

You Know You've Been Single for Too Long When...

(0) Comments | Posted 5 August 2014 | (15:32)

Signs, red flags, signals, call them what you will, but for a woman there are some undeniably worrying behaviours that tell the world and more importantly yourself that you need to get off, on someone, asap. Enough is enough. Your vagina's just something you use to pee - occasionally you...

Things We Can Learn From Lars Von Trier

(0) Comments | Posted 16 July 2014 | (17:39)

My feelings for Lars Von Trier's work run deep for many reasons. Firstly, I love fucked up movies, oh yes, the more disturbing the better; my favourite movies are probably Antichrist and The Sound of Music (a nun, turned nanny, turned singer on a mountain? fucked up genius). Having suffered...

Things You Never Think in Your Thirties

(0) Comments | Posted 5 July 2014 | (17:15)

Maybe I'm having a premature mid-life crisis and my friends aren't telling me, or maybe I'm just older and wiser, but as I walk around London town makeup free in flats and a sundress, the freedom of being in my thirties and totally non bothered about, well anything really, makes...

My Depression: The Best Thing

(0) Comments | Posted 12 May 2014 | (16:01)

I had a dark period of depression for just over two years, not that I knew it at the time. It had become the norm to feel dead behind the eyes, empty, numb and generally dire at all times. My weekends would involve a breakfast of crying followed by a...

Viva la Padding!

(0) Comments | Posted 1 May 2014 | (15:17)

I recently read an article online that asked if wearing a padded bra was lying. My initial reaction was, 'Are you kidding me?' Who has the right to say if a woman's choice of bra is creating a lie? And who are we lying to? Oh, of course - men....

My Feelings for My Underwear - Who Knew?

(0) Comments | Posted 11 April 2014 | (14:29)

Pre Christmas I decided to have a turnout in a bid to hit the New Year a fresh, and I mean business. It's all going: five unimpressive foundations that I kept 'just in case', a mini pink Filofax from 2008 - why? And a swimsuit I last wore in 2009...

The DD Debate: How Do You Feel About Your Cup Size?

(0) Comments | Posted 27 March 2014 | (11:25)

The holy grail of the bra has to be, cup size. Too much? Never enough? How do we honestly feel about the size of our wonderfully varied chests? Do you aspire to a Marilyn-esque eruption of curves? Or does your heaving chest see you day dreaming of being bra free...

'Under the Chin'

(0) Comments | Posted 24 March 2014 | (11:12)

Friday night I went to the cinema to see the beautiful Scarlett Johansson play an alien seductress in 'Under the skin'. I was mesmerised not only by her stunning performance, but also by her physical form. There are many inches of flesh to love on Scarlett but for me, it...

The Importance of Sisterhood

(0) Comments | Posted 18 March 2014 | (15:37)

As I am sat at Triumph HQ in London waiting to meet with an old friend and marketing guru, I am mesmerized not only by the beautiful sets of underwear adorning every corner like a wallpaper of diversity and femininity, but also by the warm and open feel from the...

The Unexpected Empowerment of an Underwear Shoot

(0) Comments | Posted 17 March 2014 | (19:37)

When I got the call on a Thursday asking if I wanted to take part in a filming for Triumph's 'Women in Making' project as one of their 'real makers' the following Monday, I of course said yes. Since my last turn playing celebrity interviewer, I've been dying for a...

Valentine Valenfine!

(0) Comments | Posted 12 February 2014 | (20:26)

I LOVE Valentine's Day, but then, I pretty much love everything - apart from moody people. When I try to spread the V Day love though, often it is met with a sour face and 'Oh I HATE Valentine's day' followed by 'It's a marketing scam!' Generally these people also...

12 Years a Slave

(1) Comments | Posted 7 February 2014 | (14:18)

Saturday afternoon cinema is one of my favourite things to do on a rainy day in London, and a solo trip is an extra treat. A pure self-indulgent couple of hours to myself with the luxury of no conversation; a totally selfish disconnection from the world is gift to myself...

Why I Love Kate Moss

(0) Comments | Posted 10 January 2014 | (12:40)

Permanently smoking with her hipbones shining through that Calvin Klein dress, doll face Kate was a breath of fresh air when she arrived in the early 90's. Ever since I saw her strut down the runway for Bella Freud in a black and pink fringe bikini in 1993, I was...

Do Yourself a Favour - Shut Up!

(0) Comments | Posted 30 December 2013 | (19:52)

People often ask me how I manage to stay so permanently positive, and it's really not that hard. I used to think that people who seem so damn happy must go home and collapse at having to put on a show, but no, now I am one of those annoying...

All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth

(0) Comments | Posted 1 December 2013 | (19:19)

I am surrounded by people with glorious teeth who are oblivious to the fact that each they flash their naturally five star nashers, a little part of me dies. My flatmate's are sickeningly perfect, my best friend's laugh at me in their arrogance of divine each time she smiles, and...

Efron or Hack

(0) Comments | Posted 20 October 2013 | (21:48)

The life of a freelancer is often paved with baked beans and feeling 'loaded' when something sells for £9.99 on eBay, plus postage, but as I sat eating a pork chop pizza, side salad, AND dessert on midday Monday with the beautiful and talented Paula Goldstein Di Principle, we agreed...

Friendship Trends

(0) Comments | Posted 6 October 2013 | (14:18)

Post fashion week, after seeing another season of air kissing whilst checking out the rest of the room, made me think about friendship trends. Friend is an interesting word these days. It can mean anything from a genuine friendship with a loved one you have known for years, to someone...

From Chelsea Buns, to Iron Buns

(0) Comments | Posted 9 September 2013 | (18:31)

I recently turned 36, and don't get me wrong - I adore my thirties, but tipping the scales closer to forty, I looked over my soft curves with an extra portion of arse, and thought - It's now or never.

My twenties were a ball of confusion, random sex, and...

Online, On-DULL!

Raising our glasses over dinner my friend announces, "Here's to finding love!" I answer with "Mmm, you have the love, I'll have the book deal - CHEERS!" Yes, my friend has love on the brain. She is the opposite of me with a textbook case: late thirties, not met anyone...

Bring Back the Bush!

(0) Comments | Posted 26 August 2013 | (17:56)

Somehow, the topic of pubic hair styling came up with a friend the other day and I proudly declared, "I'm sick of Brazilians - I'm bringing back the bush!" to which she wholeheartedly agreed. I think the bush is poised to return, as has the power brow. Over plucked eyebrows...
