Womanhood for many millennial females has become synonymous with the seven day slay. We’re bosses and as such we’ve created a narrative that tells the world real women wake up set to slay ALL the time. Make-up must slay, hair must slay, career must slay; and whilst I’m all up for a bit of slayage, the idea that you have to be 10 outta 10 all the time is a utter madness.
It was one of those spring afternoons when the air turned thick, the wind became warm and fierce and the sky held the potential for a pefect storm.

Its like all the elements are quietly assembling into place backstage before the curtain goes up and the show starts.
