A poem by Hodan Khalif @sprinklesofblack Being black and muslim, Is more than the media labeling my brother a thug for his skin, And my sister a terrorist for the scarf around her head, It is more than my mother’s prayer every time we leave home and the relief that flashes in her eyes when…

The Domestic Abuse Diaries – The Refuge

I open my eyes, and instead of seeing trees outside my bedroom window, I'm faced with the grey steel of the upper bunk bed. My 3-year-old has crept into bed with me after falling out of his own. I guess I'm not the only one having a hard time getting used to sleeping in a bunk…

Taking a look back at the best TRENDS of 2018.

Logo revival This year we saw sportswear take the lead in fashion , people were swapping more outerwear styles for relaxed sportswear looks, the great thing about this trend is that its gender fluid, big vintage brands had their time to step back in and take over. Brands like Champion, Kappa, and Ellesse were seen…

The Domestic Abuse Diaries – The Playdate

"Dad, it's Ptissem....I'm sorry but we're not going to make it to lunch today." I hated lying to my parents...especially when I could tell my dad didn't believe me. He knew something was up. I'd never leave it this late to cancel lunch, not after all the trouble my mum had gone to.  But there…

The Domestic Abuse Diaries – The Super-Market

Carrot cake or Victoria sponge... God, I don't know...maybe she'd prefer some good old Mr Kipling. What kind of cakes do 80-year olds like anyway? And then what do I get mum...we’re going to hers afterwards and I hate walking in empty handed, especially with a husband who eats for two, sometimes three... OK, I'm getting…

The Domestic Abuse Diaries – The Honey Moon

“He’s going to think you’re a slag now, I hope you realise that!” My husband marched alongside me pulling his suitcase behind him, his face red and angry. Any joy we’d experienced on the flight had disappeared.  “You can’t shake people’s hands” he whispered angrily.  “I’m sorry...I didn’t think it was a problem” I replied, sad…
