#MeToo . I had not posted this yet because I am ashamed. Still. 13 years later and I still blame myself for how I reacted when I was 21 and got offered a job in exchange for sex. I'm angry at myself that I ended up going on a date with my harasser instead of reporting him, slapping him in the face or at least yelling at him. I was young and stupid and desperate, and he was convincing and good-looking and in a position of power over me. I did not take the job, and I did not have sex with him, if that is at all relevant. But I wish I had stood up for myself.
Just before the sunset in Kemp Town 🌅 and no, I do not live in these beautiful colourful houses. I live in the big ugly brown brick building you can't see. But I have a sea view, and that's all I want from life, really 🙏🏻
Went for a Sunday afternoon run 🏃🏻 in the lovely weather. Can't believe this is October! ☀️ finished with a walk on the seafront. Feeling so lucky to be living in this city. Loving it all and still taking it all in as if it were my first day here ✨ #GoldenHour #ThisisBrighton
What a weekend! Burgers and wine last night, followed by the laziest morning ever spent watching Netflix under the covers (well, I also did my tax return so not completely unproductive!) and now a relaxing ☕️ and chat with @the_london_salad at yet another cosy Brighton cafè! This evening, cooking dinner for @davidcamilli who's returning from Italy!
Things I love about Brighton: the constant stumbling upon cool places, like this shop with amazing interiors, eco fashion and cute and quirky self-care items. New favourite spot! @jubilee_streetstore
Easily distracted 📲it's been a busy few weeks and the challenges keep heaping up - just as the days get shorter and the weather gets chillier! 🍂 trying to look to brighter days ahead (with perhaps a bit less to do...yeah, dream on 🤣) #TheEntrepreneurLife photo by @davidcamilli
Wearing my @unreal_fur coat for the first time 🙌🏼 I don't know why real fur is even a thing anymore, as the faux options are so beautiful, warm and high-quality - and most importantly, no one died for them. Check out Unreal Fur's collection and fall in love! ❤️ #VildaOOTD
Vegan food, fashion and beauty - and jewellery! - at the @vivacharity vegan festival in Brighton yesterday 💫
Out in rainy Hove with @petauk and @zorro_yip_yip today to ask @thomascookuk to stop profiting from animal abuse and stop selling trips to SeaWorld. What's wrong with SeaWorld? Marine wild animals are kept in tiny concrete tanks their whole lives (imagine living in a bathtub), deprived of everything that's natural to them and taken from their families. Watch Blackfish on Netflix for more info and never visit attractions that use animals 🐳🐬
Friday lunch 🍩 🍩 ☕️ ☕️ @cafeplentybrighton @zorro_yip_yip
All smiles on Friday, trying not to freak out about the @vildamagazine shoot on Sat 🙈 (spoiler alert: it went SUPER well!) photos coming soon! This pic, just like the photos in the shoot, is by @davidcamilli
Golden hour ✨having a Sunday in with vegan brownies, endless cups of coffee and lots of work to do - check my latest Editor's notes at vildamagazine.com! Still on a high from yesterday's shoot with Unreal Fur - it went so amazingly well! Can't wait to share the photos with you 💚
SO proud if this super glam squad today! The @vildamagazine shoot with @unreal_fur went amazingly well despite the cloudy weather! Here's a sneak preview of @davidcamilli's awesome photography 📸 and the gorgeous @josephinemcgrail12 being a pro in front of the camera! I'm so lucky to be able to work with such great people on amazing projects that show how luxurious and glamorous vegan fashion can be 👗 More to come on the site soon, stay tuned!
The scene for tomorrow's photo shoot...and I am hyperventilating because: it might rain. Also, it could rain. Did I mention that rain is a possibility? If it rains on my shoot, I will jump off the pier ☔️ 🚫
My new eyeliner from @phb_ethicalbeauty is everything I need in an eyeliner - pitch-black, easy to use and completely vegan, nontoxic and cruelty-free! Thanks @lovelulabeauty for kindly providing this and other kind beauty goodies 😊
