I know the stigma which follows the thee syllable phrase ‘Green Party’, when I heard someone say they want to vote green for the first time, my immediate thought was probably similar to your very own when reading the title of this article.

Meritoracy of Makeup

27-09-2018

I for one am partial to the frequent splurge on branded makeup, skincare, haircare you name it, I’ve probably wasted money on it. But through this unending drain on my bank account, I have found a few brands that work and those that make me question their motives for creating a global brand and entering the beauty world.

The Whips: are they destroying democracy?

16-08-2018

For all of you that don’t know, the whips are people who work for the political parties whose primary objective is to make sure the MPs in the parties are doing what is asked by the party.

May The Best Girl Win

May the best girl win. What image does this phrase conjure up in your mind ? Personally it paints a picture of a beauty pageant, girls being paraded on a catwalk in front of a crowd who give their judgement on these women- choosing which one they view to be more desirable than the others.
