. Around 85,000 women and 12,000 men are raped in England and Wales alone every year. That’s approximately 11 rapes per hour. Just adults. These are both penetration and attempts. . 1 in 5 women aged 16 – 59 have experienced sexual assault of some sort. . Conviction rates of rape are lower than any other crime with only 5.7% reported cases ending in a conviction. Do these statistics shock you? They don’t shock me. Not anymore.

I had to wake up at six, not so great when the excitement and nerves keep you up until four, and I made the mistake of putting false nails on and as a result, I basically disabled my hands because I had to get my flat mate to do my jeans up for me. I then had to…

I recently hit my 4th birthday on this blog and to be quite honest, i’m surprised I got this far. It’s been great fun and I look forward to many more years of blogging, Just like every birthday, I’ve got ten more blogging lessons for you guys, let me know what you think in the comments and if there is anything I missed out! Photography When I first started as a blogger, I never realised just how important the photography was, the lighting, the composition, the relevance, the colour scheme, everything. A more in focus image creates for a visual…
