Andrew Castle serves double fault after making ‘sexist’ comment

It was only earlier this week I professed my ‘voice crush’ for Andrew Castle. I don’t know why, but Great American Songbook tracks sound so much better on Smooth Radio when he introduces them.  So, I was disappointed to hear he’d been dubbed ‘Creepy Castle’ after making an unnecessarily sexist comment during the Marcus Willis […]

Unapologetic Adidas stands up for LGBT rights

2016 is the year of diversity. Or is it? The buzzword on everyone’s lips, we’ve already gone through the painful process of watching Oscars President Cheryl Boone Isaacs look nervous as an all-white cast of actors swooped across nomination lists for an awards ceremony taking place during America’s Black History Month. For this to happen […]

Can I quote you on that? Part 4: Cadbury Milk Tray

Cadbury is looking for a new man to deliver Milk Tray to women everywhere. After 13-years, the smooth and suave man is back on our TV screens looking for a new recruit to hand the baton to – all because the lady still loves Milk Tray. But, the job description has changed somewhat according to […]

Three reasons why *those* Protein World adverts ruffled my feathers

Earlier this week I cheerfully skipped onto the tube. Not because I was on my way home from work, but because I’d read that Protein World‘s contract with Transport for London had come to an end. In essence, no more sexist ‘Are you beach ready?’ adverts to ruin my commute. Hallelujah! With research claiming that more than 60% of […]

Clean & Clear’s new campaign is a beauty

The Spice Girls may have stopped making music, but their ‘Girl Power’ legacy lives on. And, this year, it’s stronger than ever with brands left, right and centre using femvertising to push their messages. From Always’ #LikeAGirl – a video campaign that was so successful it commanded a sequel – to Sport England’s #ThisGirlCan, they’re […]

Roses are red, PR is blue. This year brands are saving all their love for you

New research shows that Brits are set to spend £1.9bn on spoiling their loved ones this Valentine’s Day – and the ‘purchase party’ kicks off today. It seems as though my invite has been lost in the post, and it’s not the first time. At least now I’ve got the scientific evidence I’ve been waiting […]

Getting a tattoo? It’ll take an Insta(gram)

2015 is a big year for me. It’s the year I finally stop talking about getting a tattoo and just get inked. Even Santa was sick of me talking about it because a business card for an ink shop was wrapped neatly in my Christmas stocking. Since then I’ve bagged myself a designer and am […]

Black and forth: TV’s ‘flawed’ diversity plans

Just hours after Channel 4 revealed its ‘20% by 2020′ diversity plans, Channel 5‘s Celebrity Big Brother threw out Ex-Coronation Street actor Ken Morley for repeatedly using racist and sexist language. What does this mean? We’ll probably be dancing two steps forward to equality, and one step back, all the way to 2020. Hats off […]

The top five charity hashtag trends you love to hate

I’m going to let you into a secret. I wasn’t brave enough to take part in #NoMakeUpSelfie, I was nominated for the #IceBucketChallenge twice and I didn’t dunk myself in cold water and although I’ve laughed at CLIC Sargent’s #JokeAppeal campaign, I’ve not donated. So, there you have it. I’m a bad person. But, while I’ve […]
