Glued to the tube
The new generation leading ladies…I just can’t get enough of them solving scandals, challenging authorities, fighting battles and outsmarting criminals. I have spent so many hours with these ladies I feel like they are my new partners in crime. But why is it that I and millions of viewers just can’t get enough of these female powerhouses?
For the ones that don’t know;-) I am quite interested in woman, their role in society and how this changes over time. Because of this I know that the history of media is filled with examples of boring female clichés. For decades we’ve been overloaded by stories starring:
a) women behind men,
b) girls next door,
c) ladies looking for Mr. Right,
d) a combination of the above
Basically we’ve been sedated by an uninspiring parade of women who supposedly needed men to be saved. And of course I love some male attention, but I am a strong believer of gender equality, instead of stereotyping women in supporting their prince charming in his dreams.
But given the popularity of today’s on screen successes like Scandal, Homeland and Vikings, it seems the turnaround has started! These leading ladies of today are all women who act independent. and if you ask me… another step to gender equality. #femalesforward
Coming home for xmas
Confession: I am a total Xmas fanatic. I LIVE for the holiday season. While my usual taste can best be described as austere and intellectual, come Christmas, I’m into kitsch. Big time. Bring on the glitter, the glühwein and the sentimental songs!
Real life Cluedo with a sexy twist
Forget about stressful family gatherings and long, boring dinners; let me show you how to survive the (Christmas-) holidays in sexy style!
Embrace your dark side – get inspired for Halloween
Imagine if there were a night where it would be socially acceptable to indulge your deepest darkest dreams. An annual opportunity for women to dress like their sexual fantasies – be it a blood-thirsty vampire or a flirtatious nun – without getting ‘slut shamed’. Wouldn’t that be amazing? Well there is a night just like that, and it happens to be one of my favorite moments of the year: Halloween.
