Body Hair: The Ultimate Feminist Debate Kettlemag, Beauty, Miley Cyrus, Armpit, Lucy Varley
A couple of weeks ago, a dreaded trip to Primark etched itself onto my lunchtime agenda. I have to be honest, despite the occasional indisputable bargain and a devotion to their adorable pyjamas, I loathe the place. But much to my dismay, my stiletto nails found themselves excruciatingly embedded into my tights and thus a...
Every little girl’s favourite: the iconic doll gets a make-under Barbie, female image, Lucy varley, beauty, Kettle Mag,
From a young, delicate and impressionable age girls are presented with iconic Barbie dolls as gifts and as such, grow up believing that she was designed beautifully to portray the ideal female physique. Disgracefully, without us even realising it, we have been brought up to believe that this is the most desirable way to look....
A rapid route to fresh faced morning beauty that we should all know about. face.jpg
In my moments of morning madness, I often find myself complaining to my mum that I should have been born a boy. Whilst I hasten to complain, and of course, I love the femininity that comes with being a woman, there are times when I can’t help but think that being a boy would be so much easier. No...

Yet, that is how the Brothers Grimm version ended. This begs the question: how have the stories we tell our children – and therefore the way we present...
Kindness? Exert it, always.
Last night, snuggling down into the comforting depths of my duvet as the wind and rain slammed violently against my windows (with a delightful cup of tea very kindly made by my lovely fiancé close at hand) I finally found myself indulging in the latest edition of Glamour Magazine. I have been so preoccupied with various exciting projects of...
‘Once a cheater, always a cheater’: could you forgive them?
"It's not you, it's me" said my ex-friend to his now ex-girlfriend. It wasn't him. In fact, it wasn't her either. It was fear. Fear that he couldn't resist the seemingly delicious temptation that is infidelity. Knowing that he was heading off to university and as such would be expected to engage in the typical freshers rituals, he couldn't handle the...
