Just a quick one this week Bbz, but clickalicious none the less.
Have a gander and let me know your thoughts below.
Britian First really pulled a number when they used an image of Afghanistan’s first female police officer Malalai Kakar who was shot dead infront of her son outside of her home in 2008 as a Islamic extermist.
Nipples, those cheeky little scamps made an appearance at London fashon week.Nice to know that they are in fashion now. I’ve been rocking them since the 80’s, so you know. I know I’m fashion forward.
Vogue announced we were in the “Era” of the booty. Which is surprising as I wasn’t aware we didn’t have any “booty” eras before. Even more bootilicious was this video from JLo and iggy azalea called “Booty”.
There you go.
I kinda enjoyed it though. Those bootys have power.
On another less consensual note, more nudes of celebrities were released. This is beginning to get real tired.
Jezebel had an interesting article about women who regretted motherhood. They also had an article that discussed reasons why women may date fatter men to make them feel better about themselves. hmmm.
They also had this article that is about a subject very close to my heart, about why you can never truly lose your regional accent. What do you think of regional accents? I’d love to know!
The Huffington discussed “what it is like to be a woman online” which is rather amusing. Where Buzzfeed interviewed 9 women about their experiences online. Oh the joys of the internet!
I rather like doing the image posts, so I will do another one very soon but in the meantime enjoy these images about what motherhood is really like by artist Alyson Aliano.
Stamford Hill Hackney council had a little drama this week by having to remove signs instructing women what side of the road to walk on. How delightful. I must admit I do get confused without signs.
The Marysue reports that Kansas city my outlaw catcalling. Interesting idea!
They also published this letter from father and author Peter V. Brett about the comic book worlds lack of female merchandise available in the shops to inspire badass little girls.
My sailor moon heart agrees.
Anyway lovelies I am to roast a chicken, because that is the way I roll. Have a great rest of the weekend!

The first story about Afghanistan’s first female police officer being portrayed as a terrorist really shocked me. I can’t believe people can be so ignorant.
And about regional accents, I love them, it would be a boring old world of everyone sounded the same.
Crazy Isn’t it Gems? What a heroine though! Glad you love the accents, me too. I love a good accent Xx
ooo I’m going to read the motherhood article. sounds interesting! i love sailor moon
Hope you enjoyed it Nicol, it’s a very interesting discussion. Respect for the Sailor Moon love <3
What it’s like to be a woman article was really interesting 🙂 I am going to look at the motherhood photos x
Hope you enjoy them lovely! Xx
Great article, I really like your writing style! I am a fan of regional accents, I think they give people real character! We’d all be boring if we sounded the same.
Oh thank you, always nice to be completed on my wafflings! Completely agree about accents. Love them X
Great article. I really like your writing style! Some interesting bits of info. I am a massive fan of regional accents, they really give people some character, we’d all be boring if we sounded the same!
A great read loved this post, some of the stories where quite shocking but it’s always good to read through them to get to the good posts! x
Thank you! Agree some things are depressing to read, I promise meme’s and happy pictures next, tis the weekend 🙂 x
Great post hun! the article was fun to read.

Wow those nipples! Not sure I am going to rock that look to be honest lol. #UKbloggers
Hahaha! that actually made me belly laugh!I don’t think iit’s the right weather to wear them out to be honest x
Regional accents are fabulous! As for that sign about which side of the road to walk on….
They rock, don’t they? Still shocked about the sign. Just mad.
nice post!!! i feel empowered now! lol
lol! women date fatter men not because it makes us feel better about ourselves, but because we are not afraid to see past the exterior and appreciate the personality. They, however, are!!
Crazy isn’t it? Not everything is based on looks. Some of us consider personality as important in a life partner! X
second image i love the outfit, but crazy!
