Years ago at a team-building exercise, I had to come up with a surprising fact about myself. I hate these kinds of activities and couldn’t deliver anything remotely interesting. Or surprising, for that matter. I’ve given it some thought afterwards and analys..
There are several entirely rational reasons for not wanting to buy and/or wear colourful clothes: they date faster than neutrals; you tend to get tired of them quicker; they are more difficult to combine with other items of clothing. Often, bright colours ar..

I cannot really remember the time when I didn’t think about myself as a feminist. There certainly was one: I do recall reading The Second Sex and A Room of One’s Own in my early twenties and being almost shocked by the truths in them, so I cannot have been v..
