Fifty Shades of…Vanilla

It’s finally here!   By Valentina Lorenzon After months of waiting and speculating on the identity of the two main characters, the highly anticipated movie adaptation of EL James’ novel is finally in cinemas. Directed by English filmmaker, Sam Taylor Johnson, Fifty Shades of Grey came out just in time for Valentine’s weekend. Book or movie? This is the eternal question.

7 Teenage Girl Problems

Life falling apart? You’re not alone…   By Florence Matthews As a teenager, life for a girl can get pretty dramatic. As soon as the hormones start to fly around, suddenly every problem is magnified into a situation that seems 10 times worse than it is. We often feel the need to turn everything into a major drama. Somehow every single problem we face is totally unique to us and “no one has ever gone through this, you just don’t get me at all, oh my god mum”. I hate to be the bearer of bad news ladies, but I’m...
