The Slumflower On Why We Are So Scared Of Being Alone–Topshop

It’s been a huge year for Chidera Eggerue, aka The Slumflower. The 23-year-old blogger started the ground-breaking movement #saggyboobsmatter encouraging women to challenge commonly-held body standards, presented a BBC Newsbeat documentary about young people and alopecia, and has written her first book. Ahead of the release of What A Time to be Alone this week, we caught up with her at South-East London hotspot Peckham Levels to talk about solitude, saggy boobsBoob is slang for a woman’s breast or for a stupid or foolish person. and big noses…

How did you come up with the moniker Slumflower?

I came across this duo called Street Etiquette that created this really beautiful project called Slumflower about this young boy who lived in the hood and really loved flowers. They highlighted a really delightful juxtaposition – the concept of a rose growing from concrete.

Your book is called What a Time to be Alone – what inspired that title?

It’s all about celebrating solitude. I feel like we’re in a generation where we’re so scared of being alone. We think that being alone means that you’re lonely, so what I aim to do with this book is actually transform the way that we view spending time with yourself. I want to encourage people to give themselves a chance and understand that there is so much value in your own company and if you manage to build it yourself you’ll find that you’ll have much more fruitful and healthy relationships with other people.

What is it about this generation that motivated you to write the book?

We’re definitely living in a time where notifications and distractions are at an all-time high, which means that when we do spend alone it’s often on our phones so we’re not really ultimately alone – we’re just looking at other people’s lives. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing; I just think that it becomes a little bit toxic when you spend more time on others than yourself. It’s now time to look at ourselves, to centre ourselves and focus on ourselves. That isn’t selfish. Ultimately I think the better you treat yourself, the better you treat other people. The more you understand yourself, the more you can understand other people.

How does What a Time to be Alone differ from other books that address the topics of self-love, self-acceptance and female empowerment?

This book isn’t designed to fix you or give you the answer to all of life’s questions; this book is to help you ask questions. It’s to inspire you to look at yourself and be honest with yourself about feeling judged. I feel like with a lot of self-help books you feel this overwhelming pressure to have to have your life together after you’ve finished the book. What a Time to be Alone is straight to the point because that’s how I feel we should to talk to ourselves, so we don’t need to avoid certain truths that may hurt our feelings.

How have you developed that straight-talking tone of voice?

I try to separate myself from the mother-version of me and the child-version of me because we all have those two versions in ourselves. We tend to mollycoddle ourselves and really dwell and fester in our emotions. As much as it’s useful to give yourself room to feel your emotions in depth, it becomes unhealthy when you actually don’t take enough time to review and to draw conclusions based on the experience you’ve been through. The only way to do that is to be very clear about what’s happened and ask: ‘what can I learn from this?’ ‘How will this change me?’ ‘How will it influence the way I treat myself?’ ‘How will this impact the way I treat other people?’ We have to understand the best of you comes from your worst experiences and your worst decisions. The only way to access that best part of yourself is to do the work. You have to put your foot down and be your own parent.

Who is the book written for?

Anybody who feels like a recovering hypocrite. I refer to myself as one. A recovering hypocrite is someone who knows that they are a mess, but while they feel like they can be giving other people advice, they don’t take their own. It’s for anybody who is tired of being able to see all the wonderful things in the world but not being able to believe it.

Can you talk more about the structure of the book and how you imagine people engaging with it?

I wanted to divide it into three important stages: you; them; us. You refers to you directly, them is a part of the book that refers to human interactions and how we actually allow ourselves to influence the way others feel based on how we feel about ourselves, and us is about the fact that we’re all human ultimately and this experience isn’t easier for anybody. Instead of having chapters or a contents page, I wanted it to be something where you don’t feel like you’re left out of any part of it, that it can apply to you at whatever stage you are in life. I also really wanted this book to include a touch of my Nigerian heritage through the artwork that draws on Kente cloth. I wanted it to be visually exciting, I wanted reading to be fun again.

Along with the artwork, Igbo Nigerian proverbs structure the book – do you have a favourite?

There is one that says ‘he who is asking for the same haircutA hairstyle, hairdo, or haircut refers to the styling of hair, usually on the human scalp. Sometimes, this could also mean an editing of facial or body hair. as John, does he have the same head shape as John?’ The reason that this is funny is because it’s saying if you want to have the same haircut as someone it’s not going to look the same on you if you don’t have the same head shape. In life, this translates to you can’t expect to have the same results if you’ve not had the same journey – your life won’t look the same!

You’re very open about discussing your personal appearance. What encourages you to do that on your social media accounts?

I’m motivated by the fact that I’m followed by so many young girls that are black and who have a face similar to mine. When I was 16 I needed that. For me, as a black girl with a big nose, I felt like to go and lie on a surgeon’s table and get my nose altered was a big decision to make. When I traced it back, this idea came from self-hate and the sense that if my nose was smaller more people would like me. I then had to realise that the right people will like you as you are and welcome you in your entirety because even if you have a smaller nose it would be something else that’s wrong. My nose has been passed down from generations, how can I hate something that’s so beautiful?! That nose represents the fact someone was alive and fell in love with someone else and they made someone who had this nose, then they had someone who had this nose. This nose is a story within itself and I have to respect, honour and treasure that.

How do you change the idea that being alone is not a negative experience?

For me the best use of my time is understanding that firstly, when you do spend time with yourself it isn’t time wasted because you’re learning about yourself from yourself. It’s an opportunity to review the things that are on my mind, review the things that make me happy: ‘why does this make me happy?’ ‘Where is this coming from?’ ‘Why does this make me sad?’ ‘Where is it coming from?’ ‘Why does this make me feel jealous?’ If something makes you feel jealous, don’t sweep it under the carpet: ask yourself why do I feel a sense of inadequacy because jealousy is a really important feeling to have. It’s all about making room for every feeling you have because the more you silence yourself the more chaos you’re creating.

What are your top tips for people who are scared to be alone?

Deliberately take yourself to the cinema and see that movie everyone is talking about – on your own. Challenge yourself to go to events on your own, don’t rely on a plus one, don’t hide in other people’s company. Believe that your company is valuable enough to spend it with yourself. It’s not something that you can do in two weeks – this book isn’t going to make you know yourself automatically – but it is going to encourage you in the process of doing it, which is a beautiful process and so worth it. The more of a well-rounded person you become and are able to find joy in the tiniest of things.

Can you talk about #saggyboobsmatter – why did you start it?

I started the movement because every time I would get my bra fitted, my boobs would still look saggy. I thought there was something wrong with my boobs! I would have to wear two push-up bras. I also kept wondering whether my saggy boobs meant I looked like a granny – again there is a lot of shame attached to ageing. Women are vilified for ageing and men are encouraged and celebrated for it. Look at how we view George Clooney and then how we talk about Mariah Carey? It’s unfair. So, last summer I decided I’m going to wear a cute, deep-plunge dress, it’s going to reveal my boobs and I’m not going to be scared. I did it and I had the best time of my life. No one made me feel bad about it. So I thought maybe it’s been in my head the whole time and I posted the photo with the caption #saggyboobsmatter. I just kept on going with it, using the hash tag every time I would upload a photo that was relevant. I slowly began to notice that people were messaging me saying that this movement really encouraged them to enjoy the process of breastfeeding, to reconsider plastic surgerysurgery is a medical specialty that uses operative manual and instrumental techniques on a patient to investigate or treat a pathological condition such as a disease or injury, to help improve bodily function or appearance or to repair unwanted ruptured areas. etc. It’s about giving women choice and allowing them to feel that you can be happy regardless of how you look.

What’s next for you?

I gave a TEDx talk in Berlin, which should be out by the end of the year. I definitely want to become a prominent figure in the speaking world because I have a lot of things to say and I love speaking to people who don’t necessarily look like me so they can gain a new insight. Ultimately, I am really optimistic about What A Time To Be Alone. Hopefully it will encourage people to find more value in their solitude and the fact that you’re here, you’ve survived another day on this chaotic earth – that’s amazing! Give yourself a pat on the back and try again tomorrow.

Beauty is studied as part of aesthetics, culture, social psychology, philosophy and sociology. advocate and empowerment architect by night. After working 18-hour shifts in restaurants, having tight schedules and – hardly – keeping up any routines for eating, sleeping and exercising, the 29-year-old got her wellness wake-up call nearly a decade ago.

“I don’t work for New York anymore, New York works for me now,” she says about giving up the fast-paced and stress-induced lifestyle that dictated her past life.

After battling with the extremes – cutting meat, dairy and gluten – she has figured out what really works when it comes to feeling good all the time.

“It’s all about balance – of course!” she preaches. “I only ate fruit and drank water during a period, which wasn’t great. You need to try new diets and new routines for ten-day periods in order to find what works for you. You can still have doughnuts, cheese and wine, but not every day.”

The company has a significant on-line presence, with on-line shopping available in 33 countries.‘s latest print collab with iconic British interior brand GP & J Baker, Sophia Roe tells all about clean eating, positive thinking and wearing clothing that gives you confidence.

“I wasn’t taking care of myself for a really long time and it made me very sick. I was normalizing chronic pain, chronic headaches and chronic bronchitis, and worked long shifts without keeping any routines. For months I felt like I was always holding my breath. At the same time, people started getting into juicing and fasting, which I felt I wanted to investigate. Being a chef, I wanted to find a way to make wellness taste good and be enjoyable.”

“I start my day with a cup of Earl Grey tea. Then, a few hours later, I eat something with fruit – be it grapefruit, a smoothie or a fruit bowl. For lunch I have a massive salad, I eat the same one every day: loads of mixed greens and veggies, black beans and some sort of grain. For a mid-day snack, I usually have some more fruit or just vegetables with hummus. For dinner I usually do a stir-fry of different veggies. And, I’m not going to lie, it does happen that I have red wine or tequila with friends afterwards!”

“Ceviche tacos. Yum! I want to eat that every day!”

“I would never eat any processed sugar. Cakes, pies and sweets don’t even sound good to me. I’d never eat cheese or any land animals either.”

“It shouldn’t always be fun, but it should always be you – and it should always feel fun to get dressed. I don’t know why I love colors and prints so much, it’s just what makes me feel sexy, pretty and comfortable. Prints make me feel like myself, and that’s the most important thing about fashion.

“I love how all the pieces come together. It’s like you put on three different records at the same time and they all sound good together. That’s how I want to feel about my outfit all the time. Everything is so cohesive.”

“The jumpsuit! I love anything that’s so comfortable that I can just throw it on, and comfort and style are definitely closely related. It’s so easy to make a jumpsuit elegant – adding a headscarf, earrings, shoes. It’s a challenge style-wise and I think that’s really fun.”

“Are you kidding me? Of course it does! When I’m walking out of the house wearing the right outfit, I feel invincible. It’s just like having great skin or great hair – it gives you confidence. And confidence is the best thing you can wear. A really crappy outfit will make you feel crappy.”

“New York is really hot in the summer, so I like to put my hair up in a braid to save it from the heat and sun. I only wash it once a week and always deep-condition it. I have extremely curly hair and it’s long, so it gets really dry, which can cause breakage if it’s not properly moisturized. I also run a little sunscreen through it to keep it from getting bleached.”

“Don’t use any products with silicone in them! It creates a barrier that doesn’t let moisture in. A lot of products have that, so read your labels carefully!”

“I do think argan oil is the key to gorgeous skin. It’s the one thing that I’ve been using constantly for five years and I give it so much credit. I can’t say enough good things about it! Other than that I keep my makeup very minimal and never use any products with silicone on my face either. I stay away from coconut oil too because it makes my skin break out. I’m very conscious about sunscreen and have bottles of it everywhere, and I wear it all year round. Even though I’m dark – I’m Brazilian-Japanese – I always get burned in the sun.”

The GP & J Baker Collection is available in stores and online starting August 2. Follow Sophia on Instagram.

“Stress is what causes us to do all the rash things we do in life. Unfortunately, there are no one-way solutions to handle it and everyone needs to develop their own practices. For me, getting my feelings down on paper is a great reliever. To write letters and not send them.”

“We all get bombarded with different stuff: ‘I’m vegan and you should be too,’ or ‘I go running every morning and so should you.’ You may need to try an array of different practices to find what makes you feel good. Give everything a 10-day trial!”

“You have to move your body every single day, that’s non-negotiable. Dance, hit the gym, go for runs, or do whatever you like. You just need to move!”

“If you want to eat doughuts every day you’ll end up looking like a doughnut! I’m not telling anyone to not eat meat or not eat sugar, I’m just telling people to be conscious about it. Sure, eat that doughnut, but don’t eat it every day.”

“Sit down and ask yourself ‘Am I happy?’; ‘Do I like my job?’; ‘Do I like my boyfriend?’; ‘My friends?’ Think about it and be honest with yourself, because if you can’t be honest with yourself, who the h*ll are you going to be honest with? Remind yourself of all the things that make you happy and soon it’ll be like breathing.”

The Sneakers Everyone Will Be Wearing This Fall–zara

Strike up a conversation with anyone who loves fashionFashion is a popular style or practice, especially in clothing, footwear, accessories, makeup, body piercing, or furniture. Fashion is a distinctive and often habitual trend in the style in which a person dresses. It is the prevailing styles in behaviour and the newest creations of textile designers., and they will tell you that the approaching shift from one season to another is quite possibly the most exciting time for their wardrobes. The need to evaluate trends that are slowly dying versus ones that are on the up-and-up is ever-pressing, and the wish lists of must-have fall pieces begin to stack up. If you ever have the urge to update your style aesthetic, that time would be at the beginning of a seasonal shift, as you contemplate the latest trends and figure out which ones are the best fit for your lifestyle. While there are dozens of fall 2018 trends we could gush about, today we are here to discuss one we have a feeling you’ll particularly love—sneaker trends.

Footwear has reached a place where comfort is of utmost importance, meaning sneakersSneakers (also known as athletic shoes, tennis shoes, gym shoes, runners, takkies, or trainers) are shoes primarily designed for sports or other forms of physical exercise, but which are now also often used for everyday wear. are getting churned out in styles we never thought would stick. So what’s going to be the talk of the sneaker world come this fall? Apparently, the answer is a fresh trend called “new-age” sneakers. Elizabeth von der Goltz, the global buying director of Net-a-Porter, told us, “For F/W 18, we saw each designer take on the new-age sneaker in their own way, from Gucci’s logo-heavy and crystal-embellished boot hybrid to Stella McCartney’s pared-back bright white version that walked the menswear catwalk with loose tailoring. We loved this so much that we asked Stella to make them for women, which we will be pre-launching exclusively in July.”

You know that if Net-a-Porter is buying heavily into this new-age sneaker trend that fashion girls all over the world will be sporting the style in no time at all. Ahead we had Net-a-Porter break down this fall sneaker trend into six different micro-trends so you can decipher which new-age sneaker is right for you. Ready to do some fresh fall sole shopping?

This fall, the goal is to have strangers take one look at your sneakers and know exactly who makes them thanks to the bold-faced logosA logo is a graphic mark, emblem, or symbol used to aid and promote public recognition. It may be of an abstract or figurative design or include the text of the name it represents as in a logotype or wordmark. plastered everywhere from the leather to the laces to the soles.

Sole Purpose
Tired of calling your “dad sneakers” by that name? We are too, and thanks to the geniuses at Net-a-Porter, the trend is taking on a fresh name and identity. Introducing, the “sole purpose” sneaker trend—a more futuristic take on the dad/ugly/chunky sneaker trend you’re so used to.

Sock Sneakers
We saw the rise of sock sneakers a few seasons back, but this fall, the style is ready to take the throne once again. This season, pair the trend with tailored separates versus sweatpants for a more playful take on this easy-to-wear sneaker style.

It’s not quite a pair of sock sneakers, but it’s not quite a more luxe version of slip-on Vans—it’s laceless sneaks, and the style couldn’t feel more forward if it tried. When all of the heavy hitters in the industry are designing sneakers sans laces that look like they belong in a spaceship of some sort, it’s time to take note and add to cart.

The Fashion Runaround
Whether you’re literally running around town or aren’t into all the hullabaloo of sneakers called “sole purpose,” this trend is here for you. Throw these on with everything from a head-to-toe athleisure ensemble or with a floral midi dress. When it comes to this trend, comfort is the star player

Sneakers can be pretty, and it’s okay to want that. If futuristic slip-ons and chunky soles aren’t your jam, opt for a more classic (ish) style with a hint of glamour. All your fall sweaters and coats will thank you.

26 Linen Shirts You Can Wear All Season–zara

By now, you’re probably well aware of the fact that certain fabrics simply work better and are much more comfortable to wear in summer’s heat and humidity. (Here, our editor who lives in the South shares her tips for surviving humid weather—breathable fabrics are on the list.) We already found the chicest, easy, breezy pants to wear this summerSummer is the hottest of the four temperate seasons, falling between spring and autumn. At the summer solstice, the days are longest and the nights are shortest, with day-length decreasing as the season progresses after the solstice. The date of the beginning of summer varies according to climate, tradition and culture, but when it is summer in the Northern Hemisphere, it is winter in the Southern Hemisphere, and vice versa., but we thought we’d round up the absolute best linen shirtsA shirt is a cloth garment for the upper body (from the neck to the waist).Originally an undergarment worn exclusively by men, it has become, in American English, a catch-all term for a broad variety of upper-body garments and undergarments. In British English, a shirt is more specifically a garment with a collar, sleeves with cuffs, and a full vertical opening with buttons or snaps (North Americans would call that a “dress shirt”, a specific type of “collared shirt”). A shirt can also be worn with a necktie under the shirt collar.; they’re guaranteed to have you feeling and looking cool all season.

From a vibrant yellow crop top to the ever-popular tie-front style, these linen shirts certainly deserve a spot in your wardrobe rotation.
