“Loving Your Lines”, by Amy Jackson

Loving Your Lines. For centuries, women’s bodies have been under scrutiny, and society typically focuses on a perfectly smooth, hairless, curved in all the right places female body, resulting in surprise and often shock when faced with the true human form in all its spotty glory! In recent years, however, there’s been an increase in people’s acceptance and honesty towards their bodies, and amongst other breakthroughs such as body diversity, stretch marks are finally being celebrated. Stretch marks are an inevitable part of life that almost every person encounters in some form. They can happen for lots of different reasons, such as weight gain, muscle gain, weight loss and pregnancy, and to people of all shapes and sizes. Chrissy Teigen hit headlines last month after posting a Snapchat that revealed her post-childbirth stretch marks, proving even models aren’t perfect, and just as human as the rest of us. This celebration of stretch marks has been an artistic inspiration for many. Photographer Chloe Newman, has created a series of images that highlight the beauty of the …

Exhibitions [London] – May Edit

Spending the summer in the City never sounds that exiting — nor that boring, just very ‘meh‘ — especially when all the people you know are counting the days away from their departures to jaw-dropping destinations. It would be a huge mistake, however, to undervalue London during summertime; the City is in full bloom with all kinds of events, music festivals, parties — you all know what I’m talking about — but sometimes it’s better to stop to strive for the mesmerizing and incredible summer experience and to enjoy the refreshing quietness of a museum. Any art lover knows that no, museums are not just for rainy days: they are also the perfect haven from the warm and lethargic summer days — and, most importantly, let’s not forget the knowledge you get from them. Here is a list of selected exhibitions in which art, photography, and fashion are explored in countless, various ways — for all the different tastes possible. These exhibitions are currently on, or will start and finish during the month of May, and are held …

Searching for Inspiration

Sometimes finding inspiration for a new creative project can be a task in itself. We have all been there – sitting at the desk, staring into the computer screen and wishing our brain would just magically click and let you have an out-pouring of amazing ideas, but unfortunately inspiration just doesn’t work like that. #1 / STEP AWAY FROM THE DESK One of the best ways to find inspiration for projects is to actually get away from the space that you work in, get out of the familiar and see what happens. This can really help if you’re feeling stressed about your work, because you might just be going over the problems too much, when really all you need is to clear your head. This could start by simply taking a break and going for a walk. When I do this I always take my camera, it’s relaxing and when the mind is at rest new ideas can evolve and take shape. #2 / TAKE A WALK You might already know what places inspire you. For …
