Jul 21 2020

As we approach his last PE lesson, I look back at my interview with the nation’s official PE teacher, Joe Wicks, that happened through a zoom call during the covid-19 lockdown. With his super approachable, friendly and affable demeanour he made me feel immediately at ease. Joe Wicks is loved by not only in Britain but has a huge number of fans worldwide and deservedly so.

Picture Book of the month: The Tower Bridge Cat & The Baby Whale

Jul 18 2020

I’m in love with anything that features my adoptive city, London. I have often covered my favourite books about London and I am now excited about the launch of a new children’s book set at Tower Bridge: The Tower Bridge Cat & The Baby Whale. This ‘tail’ is perfect for primary school children, or pre-school children as a bedtime story – with wonderful illustrations that follow Bella on her adventures at the iconic landmark. It follows the award-winning prequel, The Tower Bridge Cat. I cannot wait to go back to  Tower Bridge very soon! The London view from there is absolutely incredible.

Reading a magazine article about girls undergoing labiaplasty surgery for purely superficial reasons triggered Jessica to reflect on the powerful influence that society’s narrow, manufactured idea of beauty had on women and girls.
