Guest Post: Natural Remedies for Stress & Anxiety

One of my favourite things about blogging is being a part of a community. You name an interest, way of life or hobby and there will be some lovely people writing their thoughts and advice on it somewhere online. Since I started Em In Real Life I have been growing more active in this community and have had the chance to get to know some fantastic writers and creatives. One of these is Ri who writes at Happy Mentality, Ri is an open and supportive blogger who writes about mental health and body positivity. I met her in a Twitter…

Scandinavia 2018

I was lucky enough this week to go along to the VIP Preview evening of the newest Christmas Party night in Milton Keynes, Scandinavia.

The preview evening provided welcome solace from the England defeat and an opportunity to look forward to coming months over some good food, cocktails and live music. The preview was…

What feminism means to me

I was shocked recently to hear about one of the female members of my local political party (of which I am a member) suggest that only women should be allowed to vote for their women’s officer. Err what?! How can we possibly be asking for equality and excluding men from the conversation? Luckily her suggestion wasn’t taken on but I was surprised that it was even made in the first place from a woman who is so politically active. I tried to understand her point ‘men don’t understand women’s issues so how can they vote for a women’s officer?’. Whilst…
