December Issue: Christmas Special

Christmas is coming round, the most festive holiday of the year and I won’t be home to celebrate it. Instead I’ll be studying in China. Fun. No really, I do think it will be fun. This issue will be kept short and simple: What not to wear for Christmas.
Firstly, don’t wear anything that lights up, it’s just a bit too tacky. Next is mistletoe anywhere on your body when you’re at an office party, the office party is not the place to kiss someone. You don’t want to be an open invitation to a harassment charge, a private party would be okay. 
Jingle bells is next. They may be cute but after a few minutes it starts getting annoying. Holiday costumes is also a no-no, unless it’s a costume party or you’ve been hired to play Santa for the guests.  Santa hat will be given a pass but reindeer antlers are border-line bad. 
Lastly is over-the-top party dresses for an office or family party. No low-cut, skin-tight dresses please, keep in mind who the guests are. Have fun with the wardrobe when celebrating Christmas but keep it stylish. A red, black and white is a beautiful go-to colour palette, or maybe even just green dress.

November 2013: Airhead


N

ovember is my month, this is because it’s the month of my birthday and the month where my summer long holiday begins, after all my exams that is. This year the end of November will be one very special week. It will be the first time I celebrate my birthday with my boyfriend and also my first time travelling alone without my parents. Beginning in the last week of November, I will be travelling to Kuala Lumpur and going to an AVICII concert on my birthday, then heading to Hangzhou and Beijing to study Chinese for two months. 


I am no airhead, I place education first and intelligence is of great importance to me. And since November is the month of my final exams, this issue will be kept simple. This issue will be a bit different to all the past issues. Instead of focussing on fashion or beauty, this one is going to be focusing on intelligence. A highly interesting opinion on this topic was found on www.therulesrevistied.com where the author talks about whether intelligence in a woman is attractive or not.  
An interesting point he made was this: “…imagine how it would feel to date a man who was far more physically attractive than you… You, on the other hand… aren't the best looking woman in the world… Now imagine walking into a party on this man's arm. Heads turn from every direction as you walk in, but to take in his beauty - not yours. You are barely noticed. This is how a man of inferior intelligence (read: weakness) can feel in the presence of a woman who is much smarter than him. And this probably goes a long way towards illustrating how the feeling isn't "threatening" or "intimidating" so much as demoralizing - which is worse.
“All of this is background to making the point that men want to be smarter than their woman, and they want this not because they are proud or misogynist, but in order to feel a sense of purpose. They aren't afraid of or threatened by smarter women, but their woman's intelligence can prevent them from having the advantage of power that makes them feel masculine and garners their woman's admiration… One final and important point: intelligence is still undoubtedly a positive trait in women, so long as it does not undermine the man's strength by exceeding his…
