Ad Hoc
No comments

Recently, The Wheeler Centre hosted Fashion Critique: Fact or Fiction?, a panel proposing that while social media has increased the public’s steady obsession with fashion, via the frenzied one-click sharing that turns a designer from unknown to ‘must-have’ overnight, the online conversation has not increased the serious critique of fashion as a cultural position or…

album review: voices, phantogram

Eloise Baker
No comments

  Released late February, Phantogram’s Voices evokes a warning or premonition, with its soaring synths, determined vocals, sharp hip-hop beats and the frequent themes of death, stars, love and dreams. Similar to the Nine Inch Nails album The Fragile, it makes you feel as though you are moving even when you’re not. A complex and…

Have you ever come home after a long day at work, and figured it would be easier to eat cheese on toast, than to cook something healthy? We’ve all been there – groceries take time, it’s too hard to think of stuff to make, and frankly, eating badly is often cheaper. Those are all pretty…

is society obsessed with size?

Christina Bulbrook
No comments

Image via Ron Henry Photography Bigger is better. The age-old phrase rings startlingly true at certain points in our lives (think: tracksuit pants, that glass of wine after a hard day, Anne Hathaway’s smile).  However, certain people will still frequently disagree, claiming compactness is the new black.

x’s and o’s: is it possible to be friends with an ex?

lip magazine
2 comments

I’ve never been good at maintaining friendships with people I’ve been involved with. I used to think it was their fault – because clearly it’s the height of maturity to blame everything on your ex after a break up – but in reality, I think it has a lot more to do with me. I’m…

Whilst scrolling through Facebook the other morning, I came upon a semi naked photograph of Demi Lovato with the heading “Are you digging Demi Lovato’s sexy new look”? Intrigued, I opened the article only to discover that, oops, another teen starlet went nude for fame. It was then that I realised that not only were…

One comment

Just because I am not blood related to my parents does not mean they are fake; and my biological parents are definitely not my real parents. ‘So who are your real parents?’ Ever since I was young, people have asked me this question. I was adopted when I was only 30 days old. My “real…
