Slut Shaming Needs To Stop

Slut Shaming Needs To Stop

"Send Nudes" "no" " well, you're a slut anyway".
This sentence is far too relatable to most girls. The amount of times i've been asked for nudes is shocking. If you say no, guys get defensive. For this reason it's often scared me to say no, because I hate the idea of making people upset with me, it's a fear of mine. I feel pressured, the words "send nudes" frighten me. I don't want to be seen as a prude. I don't want people to be angry at me. I am someone that is personally uncomfortable with my body, which you're probably thinking from this shoot it's a bit ironic, but honestly it's true. I can't stand the idea of people seeing my stomach.

A common thing I find when it comes to sending nudes, if I say i'm not comfortable or I hate my body, I get the response of it's fine, I think you have a perfect body blah blah blah, or in some way they try to manipulate you. I end up feeling bad , looking back at that, why should I feel bad. I'm not saying im uncomfortable for some kind of attention, I just honestly don't want to and I hate that most guys can't accept that. If someone is pressuring you into sending them nudes, thats a sign you should let that mango ( see what I did there ;) - Oh boy). 
Obviously it's okay to send nudes, if you actually want to, but being pressured to do so is not okay. 

I've found myself a few times being called out for being a slut because I haven't sent a dirty picture to them, where on earth is the logic behind this? Like seriously kanye-not! 
I've been slut shamed for even my Instagram, mainly by friends. I most of the time wonder why are people so offended by my body? I'm trying to learn to love myself, but I get put down when trying to do so. I post some pictures on instagram as i'm trying to up my confidence and learn to love myself. It makes it upsetting when people can't see this. When I see girls uploading body confident pictures, i'm just like YAAAAAS QUEEN, not "ergh, you're such a slut". 

The word slut shouldn't exist! I hate that word and in no way would I use it to explain anyone. So what if someone likes sex, a girl can do whatever she wants with her body, why should she get called out for that. I find it crazy how a girl can be labelled a slut for the way she dresses or the number of people she has slept with as opposed to men being praised for the same behaviour. If you don't sleep around you're seen as a prude, there's never an in between. What i'm trying to say is stop slut shaming people for what they do or what they wear, it's their life, let them do what they want. It's bloody 2017 stop being offended by a woman's boobs, let her do her thing, be proud of who she is. There is no excuse for slut shaming.

My Promise To Improve My Wellbeing

My Promise To Improve My Wellbeing

We can all agree the athleisure trend is perfect for this time of year, it's getting closer and closer to Christmas and I don't know about you but comfy clothes are a must for this season. I always find my eating habits are a lot worse in the Winter and I kinda lose myself, so what better way to dress yourself to adapt to that. I used to be one of those people who thought you couldn't make comfy clothes look stylish, I was wrong. In the last year mixing sport and fashion has been my favourite thing to do, I can't get enough of it. To spice up a sporty look a bit more I usually wear a few layering necklaces, big hoops and a baseball hat, I feel like this kinda differentiates it from being sporty to being a fashion look. The best bit about it, you can still be comfy! 

While being at Uni, I feel like my well being has not been at it's best and i'm pretty sure most students can agree too. It's hard to look after yourself when you have been thrown in the deep end of becoming an adult, one moment you're living at home with your parents just finishing college, next thing you know you have all these responsibilities on your hands as well as Uni work. I find having the will to exercise is hard and snacking on healthy treats rather than cakes. Its terrible when being a poor student as you want to spend as little as possible, seeing them cheap happy shopper cakes , it's hard not to buy them when you need something to snack on when you're hungry. I'm terrible for the fact once I start eating something sweet, I can't stop. Cakes are the bane of my life at University. My plan from now on is to get my arse back in gear and cut out the bad foods in my diet. Snacking on nuts, fruits etc. My main focus is having a balanced diet, i'm still going to have the occasional pizza, because PIZZA!? But what I want to do is cut down on those bad foods. 

Since starting uni my stress and anxiety levels have been higher than ever, it doesn't help when you're a million miles away from home and in somewhere foreign to you. Yoga is a good way to reduce this, I think it is something much needed if you're in a similar situation to me. Yoga is so cleansing and good for the brain, I don't understand why I haven't been doing it more often.

I feel like this blog post is subconsciously inspired by Angus Thongs and perfect snogging, the moment she starts to try and better herself. I've already ticked off her main points about yoga and eating healthier! 

Thank you Jack Wills for sponsoring this post, check out their womens gym hoodies to kick start your motivation to get back into sport, or if you're an athleisure nerd like me ;) 

What are your thoughts on the athleisure trend ? If you're at University how do you control your wellbeing?

Space Girl - Halloween Makeup

Space Girl - Halloween Makeup

Photography: Scarlett Douglas


It's not that often I do makeup on my blog, I want to do it more often but I never feel like i'm that great at makeup so I distance myself from doing it, but you know it's halloween so let's do it. 
I'm not gonna lie me and Scarlett did this at like 1 in the morning, shows how eager I am ey ;)

The whole look in general was kinda an improvisation and see what happens when I finish it, so I guess you can say i'm a Space Girl or it can be whatever you interpret it to be. It was quite easy to do all I needed was a few blue eyeshadows and glitters. I recently ordered the Jaclyn Hill Morphe palette, I was far too excited to use it, so obviously I had to use it for this look. The colours don't actually have names for them so i'm just gonna say I used the two teale colours from the pallet and I used them to contour and do my eyeshadow ( with help from my beautiful friend Scarlett ). I then for my eyes applied the Marc Jacobs precision eyeliner accompanied by the Collection glitter liner which was applied directly above the winged liner shaping it to my crease. As a highlight I used Becca Moonstone and added fine glitter to help make it a little more prominent. I then used a Gypsy Shrine glitter pot and applied this to the sides of my face.  To finish the look I put lipgloss onto my lips then applied silver glitter using a small brush, it's probably not the best way of getting glitter lips but i'm sure there's tutorials on how to do it because hey it may not be safe what i'm doing hah! I do imagine this to you isn't the most detailed post, so apologies, but if you have any questions, of course you are more then welcome to ask. Let me know if you would like more makeup looks and I promise I will do it more detailed and step by step!

Hope you enjoyed this look and I hope you have a fabulous Halloween!

I Miss You Brighton

I Miss You Brighton

I feels like it's been ageeeees since I last did a blog post which makes me very sad. Last weekend I went home for a couple of days to visit a few friendly faces, it was so nice being back, if only I could of been there longer. The journey from Falmouth to Brighton is very very long, if you didn't know already. I spent around ten and a half hours travelling yesterday to get home, it was a nightmare, but hey I managed to get everywhere by myself no problem, so ya know be proud of little old Saffy for that.

I miss Brighton, it's such a fab town to live in, it's so creative and has so much going on. What I like about it is it has that London vibe but also is a seaside town and can be quite chill too, it's like a mix between London and Falmouth, which I feel is a perfect combination. It's also very music orientated, you can discover so many new and talented bands there. I've discovered that I would love to get into live music photography. I've never tried it but I get so excited by the idea of doing it and capturing an image that really sets the tone of a gig. 

In this outfit I was kindly gifted these b-e-a-u-tiful boots from JustFab, so lets just make this an appreciation post to them as they're stunning. I had to pair it with this rather gallant kimono, I feel like together they make a statement.

The Start Of Uni

The Start Of Uni
Sunday, 24 September 2017
Read post











Recently I started uni, which was a big step for me, I had no idea if it was the right decision. Often people say they had the same problem but eventually settled in. My degree is fashion photography which originally I did at college and dedicated my life to, since doing more work on my blog I fell out of love with it. 

It's crazy how much pressure people put on you to go to uni. People made me feel like without uni I wouldn't be successful and it's the only choice I had if I wanted a future. Which in theory is not fair for people to say but it scared me into going. I sometimes I feel it wasn't my own decision to go but mainly feeling "forced to go". Surprisingly my parents pressured me the least out of anyone into uni, often it's the other way round for people. I still to this day question if uni is for me but i'm giving it a try and seeing if I do enjoy it.  Don't get me wrong I love the whole experience and the idea of being more independent and diving into the adult world for myself. I often get the anxiety that i'm a failure if I drop out! Can I still have an amazing career I dream of without uni? 

I just want people who are thinking of uni to know, DON'T FEEL PRESSURED INTO GOING like me. Seriously, don't let people make you feel it's the end of the world if you don't go! Do whatever you want with your life and know you can still be a fabulous boss ass bish!
