    Sex Education on Netflix, it’s exactly what you think it is:

    Sex Education on Netflix is an interesting series, starring Asa Butterfield who has appeared in films such as The Space Between Us, and Ender’s Game. Asa Butterfield plays teenager Otis Milburn, who surprisingly can’t get it on, besides being surrounded by a plethora of sexual references and innuendos, for his mother, Jean Milburn is a sex therapist. Yes, a sex therapist. But in a high school where everyone is nearly having sex, about to have sex and is having sex, it feels very weird for Otis, but Otis has a hidden talent in a school full of sex obsessed teenagers; he can be a sex therapist, well an underground sex…

    The Fyre: Review

    The party that never happened!  This documentary tells the story step by step of Billy McFarland and his FYRE festival (or lack of one).  Chris Smith is the director of the exclusive Netflix original documentary detailing the disappointing music festival. This outrageous story starts its tale in 2013 when Bill McFarland founded his 1st gold mine “Magnisis”; a very exclusive invitation-only credit card.   2017 is when it all truly kicked off for McFarland and the co-founder of FYRE, Ja Rule. Their plan was to create a magical festival, in the middle of nowhere, out of nothing. An island in the Bahamas, where notorious drug lord and murderer Pablo Escabar once…

    Cruelty-free makeup brands (for those on a budget)!

    With people now taking more interest into where their products come from the demand for cruelty-free and vegan products is always growing. Over the last few years the market has improved in the U.K however. After doing a little digging around and testing different brands I found my top favourite 3 cruelty free makeup brands. Revolution This is my personal go-to favourite brand and for the quality of the products and because it is extremely affordable with the added bonus of a 10% student discount if you have a Superdrug beauty card and Unidays. The have a range of foundations, concealers to eyeshadow pallets and the best affordable highlighter. My…

    Veganuary Vs. Februdairy: The Twitter War That Backfired on the Pro-Dairy Community

    This year’s Veganuary caused more of a buzz than any years prior, with a record 250,000 people pledging to take part. But, with this came a rush of people eager to slate the movement and encourage the following month to be coined Februdairy. Recent research by The Vegan Society has revealed the number of vegans in the UK in 2018 was quadruple the amount in 2014, jumping from just 150,000 to 600,000 (that’s 1.16% of the population!). It’s very clear that veganism is rapidly on the rise – and Veganuary is a huge contributor to this. The movement urges people to follow a cruelty-free vegan lifestyle for the month of…

    #TimeToTalk

    It’s #TimeToTalk day,  a day where we can all help tackle the stigma surrounding mental health. Although, we should all be encouraged to openly talk about our mental health on a normal day-to-day basis, without the worries of what other people may say or think. However it can still be difficult in today’s society. First-year criminology  student, Natasha Reece, openly discusses her mental health and how it impacts her on a day-to-day basis: Hi, I’m awkward and I suffer from severe anxiety, depression and low moods, a trio of things you maybe don’t want to have when you’re a student. My usual days consist of me waking up worried, being…

    Now in its 12th year, inner city festival Live at Leeds took over the city centre on Saturday to celebrate an eccentric variety of emerging and established artists in the hottest day over the May Bank Holiday weekend ever. T’HUD went down to see what musical delights were on offer…   Heir – 12pm – Leeds Beckett 2 Kicking off the day was indie-pop band Heir, who were the perfect openers with their feel-good pop tunes, complementing the beaming sun outside. 150 odd early worms made their way to the smaller of the two Leeds Beckett stages to support the Leeds band and dance along with lead singer Tom Hammond,…

    Beauty on a Budget!

    As poor, hard-up and destitute students, it can sometimes be tricky to keep up with our beauty routines. We simply don’t have the spare coins to splurge on make-up and skincare! But never fear, my dears, because I’ve done some digging to find you my favourite affordable make-up and skincare products. HURRAY.   The Ordinary Coverage Foundation £5.90 This foundation has been endlessly praised by bloggers all over the internet. Boasting a semi-matte finish with unique formulation, this foundation blends like a dream. The only downside? The foundation claims to be full-coverage, but I’d definitely say it’s more medium-buildable. Nevertheless, for £5.90 per 30ml, how could we possibly complain? Oh,…

    Match Preview: Huddersfield Town v Crystal Palace

    Huddersfield Town manager David Wagner answered questions at his pre-match press conference ahead of The Terrier’s Premier League clash with Crystal Palace. With the sides being in 15th and 18th position, this is a crucial relegation six pointer, something that wasn’t lost on the Town boss: “It’s a big game, there’s no doubt about it. What gives us confidence is that in the big games, like the play-off semi-final, the final and against West Brom, the players perform. It’s very important that we are there, focussed on our work, our individual jobs, the togetherness. We now have a big, big chance to collect another three points against an opponent that…
