a lament: the movement magician of second year

Carissa Lee
No comments

I am an awkward-as-fuck baby giraffe of a human being. It’s not that I’m uncomfortable in my body, I like to think that I’m so insanely comfortable, that I forget about my surroundings, leaving me susceptible to bumping into things and tripping on uneven ground. I like to drag my feet because I love indulging in…

and i’m feelin’ good: what fashion means to me

Jay Ong
No comments

Some people think fashion is superficial, and something akin to an unnecessary, pointless and expensive hobby. But wait, I know what you’re thinking. How very dare they. Take my parents, for a spiffy example. To them, appearance is a matter of buying clothes to put on your body so that, simply put,  you are not naked. End…

i tried to go makeup-free for a month (and it made me feel like utter crap)

Kaylia Payne

A few months ago I decided to go sans makeup for a month in order to write an article about the experience. I had the entire piece written in my head, even before that first day of heading to work with my au naturel face on display for the world to see. In this article,…

memoir: talking to strangers

Kaylia Payne

I have always been painfully shy. Well, actually, that is not the entire truth. When I was a very little thing I used to love talking to strangers. I had been taught by my parents to believe that I was special and interesting, and as a result I thought that everyone would be delighted by…

self-esteem: it’s not just about looks

Kaylia Payne
No comments

  Very few things get talked about more than ‘self-esteem’, or rather, the lack thereof. And after many news articles and prime-time television special reports, we are all very aware of the fact that when it comes to their looks, the majority of women (and men, I might add) are not feeling all that impressed…

The Body Luv Project – it’s time to love yourself!

One comment

ATTENTION all males and females who are short, tall, fat, thin, in between size, frizzy haired, no haired, hairy legs, pimpled, wrinkled, wrinkle-free, cellulicious, bodacious, scrumptious and all or none of the above.

Sarah Fortuna

This relatively new column is about the small things we can do every day to make the world a better place. Last week I talked about developing your own personal diversity strategy.

a leg to stand on

lip magazine
One comment

I want to talk about legs. That’s right, those twin appendages upon which your body is perched and that, if you’re lucky, you rarely spend much time thinking about. Those fiendish little fellas have taken up so much of my brain space that I feel I must now vent. I have always had a rocky…

Sonya Krzywoszyja
No comments

‘Are you still interested in the job?’ ‘No.’ ‘Do you still want to come out?’ ‘No.’ ‘Are you going to buy that?’ ‘No.’ Later on: WHY DID I SAY NO? If self-sabotage were a job, I’d be the CEO of the company. I can’t remember when I first became aware that I have a tendency…

cracking the code of confidence

Chloe Wheeler
No comments

Dan Brown’s ability to crack a Da Vinci code may entitle him to bragging rights amongst many social circles – me on the other hand, not so much. I am a modest soul – will admit to having the mathematical aptitude of a newt, and a mechanical understanding that stops at changing a tyre. Cracking…
