Tropical Treats

The heat is cranking up, finally! I have also finally booked a Summer holiday. This means that new clothes are a must... Even if I already have clothes from last year... Please don't judge me. I've been seriously eyeing up tropical floral prints and swimwear. Desperate for bikinis and Summer clothing, I ran to the internet. Don't you just love how easy internet shopping is? Log on, your Paypal details are saved and with just a click of a button your items can be with you the next day. How satisfying. 

I headed over to Boohoo first as I always like to check their "new in" section. They had 20% off holiday clothes which was perfect! So I eagerly purchased this gorgeous playsuit. Long sleeves, light material, rose gold detailing that zips in that waistline and a stunning v neck which is super flattering. I'm kind of in love with this, so much that I might wear it before I actually go on holiday... Is it just me that buys holiday clothes and then tortures themselves into eventually wearing them not on holiday?!

YSL Ad Ban // Body Positivity

Driving home today I was shocked and upset to hear that the number of hospital admissions of teenagers with eating disorders has nearly doubled in recent years. I sat in my car and was simply horrified, to be honest with you. I thought I wish I could tell all these teenagers that they're beautiful and will continue to be that beauty no matter what their body looks like... Then I thought, I can tell them... I have a blog?! A slightly abandoned blog, may I add (soz not soz, uni calls).

So, this news story started with the story about a banned YSL advertisement *sigh... The media!*  The picture below shows the banned picture. The model, 18 year old, Kiki Willems, is in good health according to the fashion world. However, this well and good, what kind of message does this image portray to the younger generations? I'm glad that it has been banned.
