2. Equality and common sense.
3. Wes Anderson (and maybe Ralph Fiennes)
I really loved this movie – so beautifully put together and delicious to look at.
Me and my boyfriend just mainlined season 3 of Game of Thrones. Woah. But the ladies – the ladies are killing it. Bring on Season 4!
5. My mum. Obviously. Happy (belated) mother’s day!
I’ve not done this before, but I think we need to have a Villain of the Month this month. And that dubious award goes to Stylist Magazine for their ridiculous scaremongering in their article on how what beauty products will stop all the disastrous effect that exercise has on your face – including a cream for nearly 250 quid!(Unfortunately I can’t find a link to the article online but I will update here if I find it!)
Seriously. There are (at least) three times in a woman’s life where she really shouldn’t worry about what she looks like – and during exercise is definitely one of them (the other two are during sex and childbirth – you have more important things to be getting on with ladies, enjoy yourself/push* *delete whichever applies). Anyone who mentions the phrase “Runner’s Face” (not a thing) in all seriousness has got their priorities all out of whack, and for a magazine that pushes its feminist credentials, they really should take a long hard look at themselves and what they are telling women. And any woman who coats herself in oil before jumping in a swimming pool I’m in – as suggested in this article – will feel my wrath.
So exercise away, get fit, get strong, move your legs. The smile on your face when those endorphins hit definitely counteracts any saggy runner’s face (not a thing).
