A note to the haters

Hey guys,

Today’s post is more or less a career rant, it is a rant about something that I have experienced often when I tell people, specifically those in the creative industry that I want to become an entertainment journalist.

tumblr_inline_mkamgio7uv1qz4rgp

For as long as I can remember, I have wanted to be like Ryan Seacrest, I didn’t just want to be like him… I wanted to be him. My passion for entertainment journalism started at a relatively young age, 7 to be precise and my love for the industry has only grown as I have got older and seen just how much the media, particularly the entertainment industry and ‘celebrity’ culture shapes our identity and influences how we see ourselves.

*Disclaimer: Some of you may be thinking, why was a seven year old watching E! News and not Noddy or something, well I had an older sister and she controlled what we watched a lot of the time so those of you that have older siblings can relate. Blame her for getting me hooked, my mum certainly wasn’t impressed, she used to force me to watch ITV News with Trevor McDonald so I could see it ‘from both sides’ and be more socially aware.*

ryan_seacrest_0_1452600391

But, back to my rant, my issue is that so many people in the industry often turn their nose up at entertainment journalism for not being serious enough, important enough, or even socially active, which is both ignorant and a indication of the lack of diversity within newsrooms and the industry.

This idea that a young person can’t talk about One Direction and White privilege or the economy is a reflection of the backward ideologies that have dominated the media industry for far too long. It’s time for a change!

Just because I want to write about Selena Gomez’s latest single or Harry Style’s new girlfriend, does not mean that I am lazy or absent minded… I have always been vocal about human rights and socially active, I will continue to do so within my career. Even within entertainment, one can hold others to account and stand up for those deprived of a voice.

I truly believe that if you are passionate about standing for something, you can do it all.

tumblr_nkwpmwwd0h1su2uowo8_500

I don’t just do this for myself, I do it for my family, I do it for my friends who have supported me since day 1, I do it for the young people from working class backgrounds who have dreams but need purpose, I do it for my future, but most importantly I do it for those who don’t have a voice, who no matter how loud they shout never get heard.

I need you to know that I hear you and I am here for you, we will do this together and one day we will ride together. I just need to fight for us.

There is a common misconception that us millennials do not care about things that matter, what is it they call us… the ‘snowflakes.’

selfiegifbrooklyn

We only care about selfies, avocados, coconut water and Buzzfeed right?

Some of us do, some of don’t, some of us love all of that and can school you on just about anything you throw at us.. the good thing about us ‘snowflakes’ is that we are socially intersectional and will continue to break barriers and plough through ignorance and hate.

How many of our elders can look in the mirror and say the same?

Before I leave, I just want to say Happy Pride Month to all my LGBT readers. Let’s all spread the rainbow and just love each other because at the end of the day- love wins!

Heroes and Villains Fanfest Review

Heroes and Villains Fanfest is a convention like no other, it is driven by maximising the fan experience and making guests a lot more accessible to fans. Attending a fanfest convention suggests you are likely to bump into stars from hit tv shows such as Arrow, Flash, Gotham and even films like Guardians of the Galaxy.

On the 27th May, alongside my best friend I attended the very first London Fanfest, at Kensington Olympia and it was incredible.

Taking selfies before the event haha

Firstly, the convention was organised so well. As someone who has attended various conventions in London, where it tends to get packed and manic. It was so refreshing to finally attend a convention that clearly understands these risks, but takes all the steps to ensure things never get out of control.

There was never a point where crowds couldn’t be controlled-everything seemed to move quite smoothly.

20170527_170301

This may have something to do with just how much the team put into ensuring security, especially after the horrific attack in Manchester forced them to change their policy. Considering the little amount of time they had to make amendments, their hard work well and truly paid off.

In terms of guests, Fanfest really hit it out of the park and booked the biggest names in TV right now. Stars included: Stephen Amell, Emily Beck Richards, Sean Pertwee, Shantel Vansanten, Italia Ricci and Robbie Amell.

Just like most conventions, Fanfest offers attendees the opportunity to purchase photo ops/autographs and selfies.

20170527_115512

Some of you may be thinking that there isn’t much difference to a photo op and selfies… you would be right to an extent. Photo ops are taken with a professional photographer and are printed out and given to you, whereas selfies can be purchased at the stars’ table and can be taken on your phone.

In my opinion, selfies at Fanfest are better than doing a photo op because they are cheaper, offer shorter queues and allow you to be far more interactive with your faves.

20170527_165628

Due to the high demand of photo ops, you tend to have to leave fairly quickly after the picture is taken to ensure everyone is seen.

We got the chance to talk to so many of the guests, via the selfie route and some conversations ended up being around five minutes long. If you get the chance to go next year, I would definitely recommend purchasing one photo op of who you are most excited for and then saving the rest of your money for selfies.

20170527_151128 (1)

Staying true to the convention fashion, there were panels throughout the day. We attended the Gotham panel and Cosplay Costume Panel, the Gotham panel was amazing with the cast spilling secrets about the upcoming series.

Overall the day was a 10/10… Everything was well organised, the guests were super nice and a pleasure to talk to. Heroes and Villains Fanfest, until next time!

Honourable Highlights:

  • Seeing Stephen Amell in the flesh arghhhhhhh
  • Getting Shantel Vansanten to send us a message
  • Meeting Italia Ricci & Robbie Amell
  • Getting to watch the Gotham Cast talk about the upcoming season
  • Getting to know some amazing fans

Did you also attend Fanfest? Drop me a line below and tell me if you plan on going next year! x

Guest Blog: Izzy talks living with IBD!

Hello Doves!

I should start by telling you that I’m not Savannah (I totally got you with the nickname though, didn’t I?). No, I’m actually Izzy.

Like Savannah, I’m 19, I blog, and I am an apprentice working in the media industry (while Savannah hangs with celebs and journalists, I am on the other end of the spectrum working on social media for government policy…). Unlike Savannah, however, I have a thing called Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), which is what I’ll be telling you lovel all about!

IMG_0900

For background, IBD is an umbrella term for Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis. Both auto-immune diseases are relapsing/remitting (they go away and then flare up) and cause inflammation in the digestive system- Crohn’s can happen anywhere from mouth to bum, while UC’s inflammation occurs mostly in the colon- that’s the one that I’ve got.

About 115,000 people in the UK have IBD, and its most common with people reaching retirement, though there are more and more diagnoses in children. Symptoms include a sudden and/or dramatic loss of weight, diarrhoea… diarrhoea with mucus in it… bloody diarrhoea, extreme fatigue, nausea, abdominal pain and bloating. There are also ‘extra-intestinal manifestations- bonus symptoms as I like to call them- that can impact your joints, eyes and skin. Oh, and I couldn’t not mention the potential impact on mental health.

IMG_1712

Now, don’t worry, the biology lesson is over! But I have to ask a question: how many of you saw the phrase IBD and felt offended I had offered background? Now, how many of you thought “IBWhat?”

Chances are, more of you fall in the latter category, and that’s okay. I knew nothing about the disease until I had it living inside me. I’d guess it’s because most people don’t comfortably talk about their poo, especially not 19 year old girls that blog and work in the media industry (I’m talking to you Savannah- open up, give the readers what they want!).

I’ll tell you something else about IBD now. For the most part, I look exactly like all of the other girls my age, if you don’t get close enough to see my eye bags, thinning hair and bruised inner arms… That makes IBD an ‘invisible illness’.

IMG_1676

I think I’ve told you everything I possibly could. Now, what do I want you to do with all of this new information?

Firstly, don’t forget it. It took a lot of my energy to write all of these fancy facts.

Next, stop being uncomfortable when talking about your bathroom habits, if you know what I mean. If you don’t, I’m talking about your poo. Being disgusted is what prevents people like me from opening up about our health.

IMG_1995

Finally, be health conscious. I mean this in two ways. Firstly, be aware of your own health. Don’t be embarrassed to see your GP, or even just tell a loved one, if you think there’s something not quite regular with your gastro-health. Secondly, remember that IBD, as much as I want us all to talk about everything, is a personal disease. Don’t offer unsolicited advice or recommendations- cutting out gluten will not cure me, I’ll have this disease forever. Don’t compare my IBD to your uncle’s friend’s son’s IBS- they’re not the same and I won’t listen to it.

I hope you learnt something new from this, and if you want to find out more, visit my blog: izzysstory.com. Fear not, I don’t only blog about my health, it’s pretty eclectic.

Thanks Savannah for letting me share my thoughts!

Snow White and the what now?!

A new Snow White parody film, starring Chloe Grace Moretz has been causing controversy on social media, after it’s promotional poster was released, earlier this week.

The film has been criticised for promoting an unhealthy, body shaming message which suggests that curvier girls are not beautiful. The poster is extremely problematic and demonstrates what it is so wrong in society.

For years, society has demonised the bigger, curvier girl denouncing her as ‘lazy’, ‘unloved’ and ‘unattractive.’ It has penalised them for not looking a certain way- a way that only seeks to attract the male gaze and has never been in the best interest of women.

Plus size model *oh how I hate the term plus size* Tess Holliday has criticised the poster saying “How did this get approved by an entire marketing team? Why is it okay to tell young kids being fat=ugly? @ChloeGMortez

Screen Shot 2017-05-31 at 21.21.29.png

Chloe Grace Mortez was quick to respond to backlash.

She tweeted, “I have now fully reviewed the marketing for Red Shoes, I am just as appalled and angry as everyone else, this wasn’t approved by me or my team.”

Screen Shot 2017-05-31 at 21.24.31.png

The poster has also received backlash from parents who feel the film will make their children feel insecure. How can this be allowed, one parent asked.

To put it simple, this is allowed because let’s be honest Hollywood is still so male dominated and patriarchal, that when they make or cast female characters, they think about it with their second brain rather than the one they should use.

It is the same reason why actresses like Mila Kunis and Megan Fox are always portrayed as the sex symbols and love interests, whilst talented actresses like Melissa Mccarthy are always seen as the joker and just a friend in films.

PicsArt_05-31-10.15.32.jpg

*Disclaimer- all of the women I mentioned above are sexy in their own right, I have girl crushes on them all haha*

Don’t get me worry, the last few years has seen a progression in the way women are treated and portrayed in the media, with models like Ashley Graham catapulting in the fashion industry, However, there is still a long way to go.

Ladies, never stop fighting for equality and always stand up for what you believe. You are beautiful beyond words can say, never let anyone tell you different.

I DYED MY HAIR

Doves,

I did it! I finally did it! After years of saying that I wanted to dye my hair, but pulling out at the last minute, I took the plunge and got my mum to dye my hair ultra violet and I LURVEEEE it!

Honestly, I am so happy that I finally did it, because it has been one of the best decisions I have made this year.

For those of you that are wondering why I wanted to dye my hair so bad, it was pretty much because I always hated my natural hair colour. It was brown, but not one of those nice, hued browns, instead it was what I called a ‘dead brown’- it didn’t really stand out and I always felt that it made me look washed out.

So, a few weeks ago I started researching best hair dyes for dark hair, but most importantly thick hair. Due to my bi-racial background, my hair is extremely layered and thick, so I wanted to make sure that the company I bought would be well equipped to actually dye it and I wasn’t wasting my money.

After binge-watching youtube videos and scouring reviews, I came to the conclusion that Schwarzkopf was the best option.

I then proceeded to go to my local superdrug to find a colour, I already knew what colour I wanted but I just needed to find the one that was closet to it.

 

9003267227678

I chose the LIVE XL in Ultra Violet, as it is made specifically for dark hair and the colour really stood out to me.

This is how my hair looks now! Isn’t it gorge ❤

I really lurveeee it, it makes me feel so confident especially because my hair was such an insecurity for me.

So if you happen to see me anytime soon, it is likely I will be hair flicking every second haha.

Until next time,

How to travel on a budget

Hey Doves,

I thought I would make this post as it summer and I’m sure a lot of you are in the midst of planning a summer trip, before I begin I want to point out that I am by no means a pro on travelling or thrifting. However, I thought it would be nice to share some of the tricks I picked up whilst planning my girls trip to Barcelona.

  • Tip One: Plan well in advance 

By planning well in advance, you will be able to get a rough idea of how much flights and accommodation are for your destination. After we had decided on Barcelona, I started looking at flights and apartments, just so I could get a rough estimate. I realised that depending on where we booked and when we booked, we could go to Barc for up to four nights for just a little under 300 and stay in a nice apartment.

For example, me and my friends have secured a penthouse apartment in central Barcelona, with flights for just £298 each and we will be saying for four nights.

Planning in advance also means that you buy flights earlier which is good, because the earlier you book flights the cheaper they are. So if you want to go away in August, for example, I would advise booking in the early part of the year so like February.

  • Travel Early

If you can, I would advise you to travel in the less busy parts of the year, so anytime excluding Summer and Christmas as these are when holiday prices peak and are more busy. However, we all do love a good summer holiday, so you can follow my other tips on how to get the best use of budgeting for a summer holiday.

  • Use comparison sites to find cheaper flights

When booking our holiday, I used websites such as TravelSupermarket and SkyScanner to find a list of the cheapest flights. These sites work by showing you a list of the cheapest flights for your date, from a range of different sites and airlines- you will typically be able to find good deals using this method.

Or if you opt against using a comparison site, you can use something like Lastminute which works in a similar way and is designed to show you the cheapest options.

  • Travel in a group

Travelling in a group splits the costs=cheaper holidays. I would definitely advise travelling a group as it means that you will be able to get better accommodation, compared to if you were travelling solo meaning you will probably have to stay in a hostel to keep costs low.

There isn’t anything wrong with saying in a hostel AT ALL, but if you can bring along your friends and stay in a nice apartment, why wouldn’t you.

  • Be smart with your destination choice. 

If you want to save money, travel smart. Pick a destination that is nice but fits your budget, if you know that going to Vegas will leave you seriously broke then go somewhere in Europe for a fraction of the price and save towards going to a more frivolous destination, at a later date.  You will thank me in the long run haha!

  • Travel Safe

This last point isn’t really related to flying on a budget but it is one of the most important, no matter where you go, always make sure that you are safe and accompanied by trusted people. Don’t take cabs without researching the company first and never take drinks off anyone you don’t know.

The same rules apply for solo travellers but just make sure that you are even more careful as you won’t have friends or family there to make sure that you are always okay.

I hope you liked this post guys, comment your thoughts below! x

 

December Playlist

This December playlist is designed to get you through these winter nights on the run up to everyone’s favourite holiday- CHRISTMAS!!! So sit back, have a break, have a kit-kat *see what I did there haha* and enjoy the music.

What’s the best concert you’ve been to? 

So I’ve seen One Direction, Kacey Musgraves, the cast of hit show Nashville, been BBC radio 1 teen awards three times but the one that really takes the trophy has to be DNCE, who I saw in August of this year. Everything about the DNCE concert was perfect: it was intimate, energetic and good fun.

Most embarrassing moment?

Crashing into a wall after making the decision to ride down the hill in my garden, on a bike with no helmet and smashing my head open. Yep it was as gory as it sounds but does it help that I was only like 5 or 6 at the time so was pretty naive when it came to sense of judgement.


My friends sent me wayyyy too many questions so I could probably continue for days but I am going to make the smart, conscious decision to stop here before I spiral out of control. Hope you enjoyed reading all about moi!

Luhhhh you lovelies,

Until next time x

Mind Over Matter

tumblr_mehpfvxqhd1rsl78go1_500

So lately I have found it hard to post on my blog and it hasn’t been because I didn’t want to or anything like that. Weirdly, I have felt a disconnect with my writing and couldn’t bring myself to start putting pen to paper and hand to keyboard; often writers will describe what is commonly known as ‘writers block’ as a hindrance to their creativity but a necessary evil- I completely disagree. I hate this feeling, I hate that I am in a place where I don’t believe in my writing because I have come so far. I hate that whenever I type something, my first reaction is to delete everything because I don’t like the way it sounds. I hate that I don’t think my writing is personal enough and shows who I am because it does, at least thats what I used to think.

Part of me feels like the time I have had away was beneficial and allowed me to get my head straight, whilst the other half feels as though I am inadequate. You see, no one ever tells you how crazy of a journey creativity can be and that your best isn’t always good enough. They don’t tell you that good mental health and the ability to create is very much interlinked because these last few weeks I have felt distanced from my normal state of being… I have had this dreaded feeling that something was off and when I think about all the stuff thats happened to me in the time that I have been away, it feels so wrong to say that because in retrospect these last couple have been some of the best I have ever had so why do I feel like everything is wrong.

In the time that I have been away I have been offered the biggest opportunity of my life *more on that soon*, attempted to start a vegetarian diet, gone to a really shoddy 90’s party and turned 19. In other news there is now only 49 days until christmas which means a new Micheal Buble album is out and supermarkets are already stripping down halloween decorations in favour for stuffed santas and mistletoe, oh yeah and the clocks went back meaning it might be time to dust off those puffer jackets.

Maybe I am just suffering from the winter blues, it wouldn’t be the first time that the cold, dark winter nights made me feel anxious and quite frankly probably won’t be the last but I also know that I need to begin getting my mind aligned with my body because right now the two are playing a game of tug of war with my emotions. I also don’t think it helps that I suffer from PCOS and with my hormones so out of control, I often suffer from horrible mood swings. But one thing is for sure I need to fix my self because this blog is far too important for me to fall off, I promise that I will overcome this and get back to blogging because I love all of you doves.

Until next time,

Savannah x

 

 

15 things I’ve learnt at 18

1.png


So, I turn 19 next month which is just really depressing because I am finally starting to get old. One minute you’re 10 and desperately want to turn eighteen and then it comes and all you realise is that everything after that point requires actual adulting which as I said before is just depressing. The good thing about growing up though is the life lessons you acquire along the way and believe me when I say I have learnt a lot, so I decided to share some with you today.

tumblr_mu10pocnfc1ql56ddo1_500

#Life Lesson One: Friends can be family too 

One thing that I have come to realise is that the lines between family and friends can often become blurred and that’s okay. There really is nothing wrong with having close friends that you consider family, especially if they are at times more there for you than those that are meant to be your blood. I come from an extremely small family and more times often than not, my close friends have been my support system and cared about me way more than any member of my extended family and it is something I will always be grateful. My girl gang aren’t just my best friends, they are my sisters and my future bridesmaids *haha*. But most importantly, they are my family ❤

#Life Lesson Two: You have to love yourself first

One thing that no one ever tells you is that as much as we all desire to have that disney fairytale ending in terms of finding love, that is merely just an afterthought if we are not in love with ourselves. To love someone other than yourself requires a lot of time and energy and if we are not happy within ourselves, it is likely that you will settle for less simply because it is what you think you deserve. Over time I have come to realise that there is nothing wrong with learning who you are and overcoming insecurities before committing yourself to a relationship; if anything it just makes you strong. 

#Life Lesson Three: The minute someone shows you their true colours, drop them

There was a time when I was very naive and believed in giving people that I thought were my friends multiple chances, even they had already hurt me a lot of times already. I believed that I could change them but one thing you will come to realise as you get older is that no one can be changed or helped, if it isn’t something they want for themselves. 

#Life Lesson Four: Girl Crushes are normal 

Believe me when I say that identifying as a straight girl doesn’t mean that you can’t appreciate other girls more than guys or have a girl crush, mine is Selena Gomez and everyone knows she is the only girl I would ever consider kissing but it doesn’t define my sexuality or who I am. Anyone that tells you different is a dumb-ass. 

#Life Lesson Five: Fangirling obsessively is not something to be ashamed of

I am a massive fangirl and  not ashamed to say so, I fangirl over everything from celebrities to reality tv. I am a shameless fangirl even though I am approaching the adult life, I know that meeting Selena Gomez in ten years time will still have me crying hysterically. 

giphy1

#Life Lesson Six: People hate the word ‘equality’ 

I consider myself an activist for both the LGBT community and Black community, as well as an identifying intersectional feminist. However, one thing that I have noticed during my many online debates is that people are genuinely scared of the word equality, particularly when are in a group that does not experience marginalisation or exploitation. I often feel that they fear having equality for all will hinder their sad, pathetic existence in the world. 

#Life Lesson Seven: It’s okay not to be okay

There are going to be times that you break down in front of those girls you don’t like or cry yourself to sleep because everyone has experienced the ‘night-time blues’ where it seems like all your problems come rushing to the surface at once. Accepting that you are in a bad place is the first step you can take in order to heal, even if it feels like no one will understand please tell someone because the longer you leave things to fester is the worse you will. 

#Life Lesson Eight: I will likely never be religious

Religion has never been my thing and likely never will. I can not bring myself to read religious texts or attend a place of worship when there are a lot of ideas within religions that I disagree with and conflict with my personal views. E.g religion is often used as a driving force to normalise homophobia and regard same sex relationships as immoral which is something I will never accept or be okay with. Personally, I identify as a spiritual person and am currently transitioning to Buddhism so I can work on becoming more in tune with my mind. 

#Life Lesson Nine: You cant take it with when you go

In this materialistic world we live in where everyone seems to be obsessed with consumer goods and the notion of being rich, it seems as though we have lost sight of what actually matters. Money is a luxury not a necessity and it is not as if we can take it with us when we die so why not just enjoy and appreciate this life we have been given. 

#Life Lesson Ten: Nothing can compare to eighties films

Eighties cinema was and continues to be the greatest era in cinema, it remains the most daring as it never shyed away from talking about topics such as abortion, feminism, sexuality etc. The eighties also gave us John Hughes- the man who pretty much invented the coming of age genre with films such as the breakfast club, pretty in pink and sixteen candles under his belt. I could go on and on about how great of a time it was but I shall save that for another post.

#Life Lesson Eleven: Adventure is key

Life is full of adventure so make sure to chase it. Go and find the pot at the end of the rainbow. 

#Life Lesson Twelve: You will never truly find yourself

You will spend your whole life searching for yourself but you will never truly get there. The reason for this is that we are constantly soul searching and changing, the person you were yesterday probably isn’t the same person you are today. Thus, learning who you really are will probably prove to be a difficult task. 

#Life Lesson Thirteen: Hard work pays off

Hard work is a necessity. Those who dream prosper only when they take their goals and do something with it, never settle for less than you know you can achieve. 

#Life Lesson Fourteen: Lemon is the key

Drinking hot lemon tea is often the best detox you could ever wish for after too much drinks on a night out. Not only does it seriously debloat your stomach, it also provides much health benefits such as preventing cancer and diabetes. 

#Life Lesson Fifteen: Birthdays just get lame once you hit eighteen 

I love birthdays but as I get older they are just seemingly becoming more and more monotonous; a day that I once counted down the days to is now just a reminder that I am getting old.  

 

Until next time,

Savannah
