Birmingham book heaven

Who would have thought Birmingham would have such a piece of beauty as well as relevance to my third and final year at University. The new library of Birmingham opened a few weeks ago now and i was excited to go and explore after hearing fantastic reviews from friends of mine. It did not disappoint! The outside is a piece of architectural heaven with its bright colors and stand out style, however i did not expect the fantastic interior it was holding inside…

Bold blue escalators greet you on each book filled floor with a modern yet sophisticated twist of what is a calm and peaceful environment and somewhere i will surely be spending a lot of time this year. As well as being a library it has also been made a social place for tutorials and book clubs with Big Brother like chairs and quiet ‘fish bowl’ study sections where you can shut the world out and immerse yourself in research. I would advise anyone who hasn’t been to definitely go and check it out even if your not a reading fan.


Feminism farce; Paris fashion week


‘My Scouseness came out..’

Paris fashion week roared into life last week, with drama for added effect. British Liverpudlian born model Hollie-May Saker just 18 years old had her dignity and grace put to the test as she modeled Nina Ricci for the first time, Ukrainian bare breasted feminist group ‘FEMEN’ invaded the catwalk in an attemptto steal the show with their harsh black slogans over their naked skin stating ‘Model go to brothel’ que screaming for effect. One female took hold of Miss Saker who punched the girl square in the nose in an attempt to release from her grasp. Scouse proud Hollie was furious that the females had attempted to steal her limelight and later tweeted about the mishap. Luckily security were on hand, and all calm was restored in Tuileries gardens, Paris.
