  • I have been thinking a lot about privileges recently. Why it’s so important to acknowledge the ones I enjoy and take for granted.

Being privileged doesn’t equate to being rich. Privilege refers to the benefits people enjoy from unearned and largely unacknowledged advantages due to race, class, ability, sexual orientation or gender.

Privilege is a tough topic. Most people would dismiss the idea that they are privileged and argue that they have worked hard to get where they are in life.

So I’ll go first.

I am remarkably privileged.

I didn’t grow up in a mansion, I didn’t have a family car, I didn’t fly till I was 19, but, nonetheless, I entered the world with a fistful of privileges. I’m fair skinned, I had access to the best education, I’m able-bodied, neither thin nor fat. I am considered pretty enough. Pretty privilege can give way to more popularity, higher grades, more positive work reviews, and career advancement. People who are considered pretty are more likely to be hired, have higher salaries, and are less likely to be found guilty and are sentenced less harshly. And that’s just reaping the benefits of ONE of the privileges I have been born with.

There is another side to this story. I grew up without my father, in a country people often associate with floods and poverty, as a woman in a man’s world.

Recognizing my privilege is not meant to make me feel guilty. It is not my fault that I was born fair skinned. It doesn’t invalidate my hardships, and it doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy other privileges while also being marginalised. I am a British citizen (passport privilege) but struggle with discrimination as an immigrant. No form of privilege is exactly the same as another.

It takes a massive amount of self-awareness to acknowledge our privileges, and feel gratitude for the blessings we enjoy. Gratitude leads to actions: speaking up, showing up, and LISTENING to the stories of those who have had to work much harder for the same opportunities.
⠀⠀
Pause, step back, acknowledge your bubble. It’s there, whether you like it or not. If we don’t acknowledge our privilege, we don’t acknowledge the pain of others. We can all do with a bit of empathy.

Never look down on yourself when the whole world turn against you, just look in the mirror then you'll find out that you're not alone. That person you see in the mirror is your reflection, it shows that even if everybody ignore you it will always stick around with you. You mirror what the world mirrors to you. 📸 : @europestyle_

  • Spotted - a Tealeaf dressed as a “Sexy Santa” .⁠
.⁠
Haha, go home with your “sexy”, Gossip Girl, that’s not my thing 😂😂 .⁠
.⁠
I’ve had a tough week with work and balance of general life stuff, big life decisions etc, but I think today I’m more in control, and for that, I’m so grateful! .⁠
.⁠
I’ve been toying with the idea of a night out, but I think a glass of red and a movie night is what’s needed this evening! .⁠
.⁠
Praise London for forever being the most festive city to date!! .⁠

  • When I visit fairs I always feel like I'm back in childhood. What could be more fun than that? 😍 Of course, it could be even better if I would have a little bit more of luck at winning prizes, but that's another story 😂😅
What's the coolest prize you have ever won?🎁🏆

  • This isn’t even about being festive! This restaurant is just beautiful and cozy all the time. Has been one of London favorites for the last 15 years when I first visited back in 2005 ish? @samiimpey and I had the most beautiful 3 course Christmas Eve meal here following Christmas carols at the Royal Albert Hall. I always recommend it to anyone when they’re traveling to London. Go and enjoy the food. Best French onion soup I’ve ever had too..

  • One of the wonderful things about the period between Christmas and New Year is the films on TV - hours of endless entertainment of varying quality 🙈 What's your favourite Christmas film? This photo was taken at around 7am in Mayfair, when it was beautifully empty! I love this Tiffany's at Christmas and all its forms✨

  • We've been catching up with The Crown this Christmas - I was very doubtful of the cast switch as I loved the previous cast but the new one is just as brilliant! Olivia Coleman (in my mind!) is just perfect ✨ I love these cosy windows in this arcade and this time of year for catching up with things, guilt free 💫
