Wear your brains on your chest!

Why are there so few women working in science? Why do so few girls in high school choose to study science? The answer? I don't know. I didn't enjoy science at school, or school, either. I am female. What does this all mean? Is there a way for those of us who are more micro mini than microscope to make up for this massive under-representation? Can fashion answer my questions? Yes. Fashion can do all that. And the answer is: science t-shirts. See what science can do! Science rocks out on guitar! Science blows shit up! Science is totally for girls.

The future of fashion

Oh ho ho ho!

Did anyone see the movie Jumper? Me neither. I might have seen it if it really was about a jumper, of the knitted and reindeer-adorned kind, but it wasn't. It's July, it's winter, so get in the upside-down festive spirit and check out these photoshopped movie posters. You will not be disappointed.

Future chic

The future is looking rosy for people who have a hard time deciding what to wear every single day of their life. Every day we have to choose and coordinate a combination of hat, coat, jacket, hair do, make-up, underwear, t-shirts, shirts, vests, jumpers, scarves, trousers, jeans, skirts, shorts, stockings, tights, socks, leg-warmers and shoes. And accessories! Mon dieu! I mean, why isn't there a kind of uniform for people who don't wear uniforms? When will we find the perfect outfit for all time? The catch-all outfit solution of the future: space suit and boots. Every day. And not just if you work in space - this outfit wants to be worn on Earth too.

Evidently the women's movement hasn't reached the future, but at least you'll be able to look like an astronaut while you're making the moon a cleaner place.

Hair do's and hair don'ts. Or, beauty tip #4

I had my hair coloured and styled the other day and I just love it! My hairdresser is brilliant and the shampoo girl does the best head massages ever, it's such a treat. You know, because I'm worth it and shit. The photo you see here was taken today, the third day after doing the 'do. The last time I went to the hairdresser I foolishly tried to preserve the style for the whole greasy week, so enamoured was I.

I have since learned that there is a three-sleep maximum for hair-do preservation. Just three short days and then it's time to lather, rinse and repeat. Trust me on this. I'm doing the research so you don't have to! Because you're welcome.
