Unspoken Rules of London Public Transport 

London is full unspoken rules that we very seriously. Failure to follow these rule will results in loads of huffs & puffs and extreme side eyes from strangers. If you are tourist or even visiting from another city in GB then you need to follow these rules to survive your first commute without ending up in A&E for anxiety! 

1. Speed Walk or Run at all times 

We are always in a rush here especially during rush hour. Everyone is always speed walking to their destination even tough public transport is quite regular. If you are going to walk slow or stand still on the escalators please stand on the RIGHT so the rest of us can go past. 

2. Oyster Must Always Be Ready To Go 

There’s nothing more annoying then standing behind someone at the barriers who is now looking for their oyster / contactless card. Like, you couldn’t find it as you were walking to the barrier? We don’t like time wasters over here so you please step aside.

3. Religion Talks

As a young girl traveling around there was always someone preaching their religion on the bus, train, street etc. However it’s getting rare and rare due to the abuse and side eyes that you are likely to receive. People just don’t want to hear it with everything going. 

4. Don’t Take All The Space 

Please take off your backpacks /sacks and be ready to get squeezed flat. We are all in a rush to get to work and can afford to wait 1 min for the next train. To be fair though the train times are not reliable especially during rush hour so squeeze in any spot you can 

5. Talk Quietly 

Nobody wants to hear your conversation so please hush it up. Anything louder than a whisper is way too loud. 

6. Don’t Make Eye Contact 

No matter how tightly squeezed you are to the person in front of you don’t no make eye contact. I repeat Do Not Make Eye Contact! Us brits cannot deal with that amount of awkwardness, especially before we’ve had some coffee. Just look at your shoes or something

7. Wait Your Turn

This is not secondary school so have some manners you annoying human. We are not queuing up because we don’t have no where to go or because idiots. It is out of respect so please join the back of the queue now before everyone unleashes their frustration on you. 
What Unspoken rules do you have in your city? Let us know!!

Are Plus Size Models Really Plus Size?

The featured image is the plus size model for Boohoo ….. just let that sick in. If she is Plus Size then I don’t know what I am to be honest. This model is beautiful however i am not sure if she is not a good representation of us plus size ladies. Having a model with a flat stomach, toned arms and and quite slim thighs is not a realistic representation of what real life Plus Size women look like. If you don’t fit the image of these plus size models than it can create body issues. Also because you end of ordering these clothes in your size and it doesn’t fit or look like the model. 

The plus size range is for sizes 16-24 or more as we can’t shop in the straight size model therefore it needs to be reflected by the model. Not only will it show you how the clothes will look on you, it also increases your confidence to try new styles seeing the models look so beautiful and on trend. Although a model can’t cover the whole plus size community, having “problem” areas that everyone can identify with like thigh thighs, big arms, a belly pugs etc and showing. 

Having real life Plus Size women represented in the media looking fashionable and stylish will not only give other ladies more confidence but it also means more people will be accepting of the beauty in Plus Size women like “hey, she looks great” .

2017 was great for Plus Size fashion with the rise of models like Ashley Graham in the Victoria Secret show, however there is much more to be done. Plus size clothing lines like Evans and Curvissa do use reprentitive models in their campaigns however the younger brands need to be a lot more to be more inclusive. In the social media era where young girls and following and buying from Brands like PrettyLittleThing, Boohoo and Missguided, more needs to be done by those team to make sure all girls are represented and can shop where their friends are shopping. 

Do you think Plus Size Models are representative? 

Bodyform New Advert Shows Period Like Blood – About Bloody Time!

Look how far we’ve come guys ….. The first ever sanitary towel advert to show period blood has been released by Bodyform! Turns out we don’t bleed blue gel or water like they normally show in other sanitary towel adverts, who knew?! 

I am still confused as why it took so long for this to be shown when women have been bleeding every month since the start of time. Why is it such a taboo? But let’s focus on the positive, there’s growth. The advert was so well done and even have the famous shower that we all go through with blood going down your legs. It doesn’t show all the dirty nitty but no one needs to see that anyways. 

Here is the video:
