Plastic-free beauty

In our last issue, I shared my review of Imelda Burke’s book, ‘The Nature of Beauty’, where she explores what ‘clean beauty’, ‘green beauty’, ‘eco-friendly beauty’, and ‘plastic-free beauty’ should be, along with a deep dive into skincare ingredients. As a person who wears make-up, avoids products tested on animals, and is environmentally-conscious, naturally, plastic-free […]

The problem with Love Island…

I’m not ashamed to say that I’m a Love Island fan. Every year I say I won’t watch it and then I get sucked in and end up watching it all the way to the end. Some highlights from this year for me included the amazingness that was Kaz (I want to be her best […]

Sex Education

Back in February, Youtuber Zoella found herself in the news when the AQA exam board decided to stop linking to her content for a GCSE media studies course. They based their decision due to the ‘adult-focused subjects that her site discusses such as sex toys and masturbation.  The topic has sparked much debate over how […]

The Tokyo Olympics, a ‘step forward’ for gender equality?

The Tokyo Olympic games have been an absolute spectacle and the team here at SOCIALight Magazine have thoroughly enjoyed watching the array of events unfold on our TVs.

Krystsina Tsimanouskaya Vs. Belarus

When Krystsina Tsimanouskaya took to social media to criticise her country’s decision to enter her into the 4×400 meter relay, a race she is unfamiliar with, she was suddenly and abruptly dropped from the team and ordered to return home to Belarus.  Having already come fourth in the women’s 100m sprint heats on July 30 […]

Even today, in 2021, an era of acceptance and challenging previous societal […]

The UK’s digital skills shortage

The pandemic has turned millions of office-based businesses into virtual companies overnight, inevitably resulting in a greater reliance on technology. This means it is arguably more important than ever to invest in employee development and tech skills. Even pre-pandemic, government figures showed eight out of ten advertised openings required some level of digital skills. “The […]

Lives on Hold

As we enter the summer months we are starting to enjoy the slow easing of restrictions, the chance to reunite with family members and friends and we welcome the opportunity to make new memories after a hard and challenging year of isolation.  2020 and the first few months of 2021 have been difficult for many, […]

Are we in the same boat?

The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the diversity of the population and drawn a focus on inequality. There is no single way of facing and experiencing the pandemic and every single person has a different story to tell.  When it comes to celebrities and z-listers – to many – swiping through Instagram may have you feeling […]
