As they appeared on the screen slice by slice I saw the brain's structures form and recede, changing from light to dark grey and black as the x-rays sliced through the different anatomical structures, as if for the first time. It set off a creative spark in me that continues to this day.
At the risk of being TMI, the idea for this post came to me whilst I was shaving my legs... a task I'd neglected for longer than I care to mention, as it's such a bloomin' faff. It struck me that us girls and all our beauty prep must look pretty damn weird to you fellas...
We have so much variety in this day and age and an infinite amount of ways to style ourselves and form our identities. Fashion week is amazing but is more of an art form then it is a creator of trends. To know the trends even before magazines write about them follow these three things.
Up and down the country there was the beautiful sight of celebrants spilling out of mosques looking more and more like fashionistas from London Fashion Week, but still keeping their traditional attire alive. Here are my top 5 picks.
Now I want to point out that I don't think there is anything wrong with Serena Williams getting her eyebrows shaped... Nor is there anything wrong with Serena choosing to share a photo of the experience, nor sharing the fact that Twitter trolls' spiteful comments have affected her. What unsettled me was Serena admission that her #haters have "won".
The higher the heel, the closer to God, I say. My husband (an orthopedic surgeon), on the other hand, says the solution to high heel pain is to not wear them. I'm keeping my heels. But, I'm considering a new husband.
Don't get me wrong, I appreciate every ray of sunshine we get, but true to English weather, each day brings something inconsistent and is wreaking havoc with my wardrobe choices! I don't know about the rest of you, but I wake up each morning scanning my closet in despair, launching each unsuitable item into a pile on my floor.
Whether it's recycling old ground coffee beans as a makeshift body-scrub from makeup master Michelle Phan, to using simple self tanning moisturiser from Irish Youtube sensation Melanie Murphy our girls are here to help.
Wearing a smart suit, a pair of killer heels, a dash of lipstick, an expensive aftershave, having a beauty treatment, a new hairdo makes us feel much more confident, knowing that we're looking good. When we feel we look the part we're often able to raise our game and portray that positive persona. We stand taller, feel more in control.
So, you are out of your maternity clothes, and are now facing an entirely new wardrobe crisis. The breast feeding wardrobe... Something you didn't prepare for when you were pregnant, bet you thought you would just wear your old clothes didn't you!
So glad I was in the park that day and the way things are going, I'm really excited about the future and doing more films. It sure beats working for a living!
If people get some cosmetic assistance what's the problem? It's their body and face. I'm thinking of someone suffering from depression who's spent too many hours with a furrowed brow making them look permanently angry and wants to try Botox just to soften the lines a little. Is there anything wrong with wanting to look a bit fresher and happier?
Accessorising really is an art. Scary to some and a regularly basked-in element for perhaps a select few, nothing feels as good when it comes to fashion, as accessorising does. And it really doesn't have to be feared. It's just misunderstood.
With the sun shining brightly and models and celebrities dashing to and from the catwalk shows, I spent most of my time during the British Fashion Council's latest London Collections Men SS16 event wondering two things: How much of what was on the catwalk would my husband wear? Will London Collections Men ever be as successful as the women's collections at London Fashion Week?
We can't all be blessed with the Kardashian Khromosones or plucked from the same exquisite gene pool as Victoria's Secret models, so sometimes I like to draw on myself to feel better. But should that compromise my precious sleeping time?
Every summer, New Designers lands at the Business Design Centre in London's Angel. And within it's walls are over 3000 graduate talents from leading design courses across the country. As a past exhibitor at New Designers myself, it's a show I return to each year to witness the new and the next.
Milan Fashion Week is unquestionably one of the most important dates in the fashion calendar, with industry insiders from Anna Dello Russo to Daisy Lowe coming from around the world to grace the Front Row.
Brands can use a whiff of organic essential oil and all the usual shampoo chemicals and still call it organic. This loophole makes it all too easy for brands to 'green-wash' consumers with hair and body care that isn't as natural or organic as it looks.
Apparently this minor change in my appearance is enough to trigger an extremely different reaction from strangers. This is the only explanation I can find for the fact that in the past three weeks, since dying my hair, I have attracted more rudeness and abuse than in the three years previous to that.
