Reading Round-Up #1

A brutally honest piece on how the housing market in the Big Smoke is getting out of hand with the highest living costs in the developed world. Sami Mikhail tells us of his move from London to the slightly nippier, greener and darn sight cheaper heights of the Fifer town Cupar. Pollution-engulfed lungs, be gone!

adore Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, and recently re-read it at the end of my final term at university, for pleasure and escapism purposes.

Vagenda Magazine’s Twitter first drew my attention to this completely brilliant Tumblr account which is dedicated to poking holes in the patriarchy of not just Disney, but other children’s film-makers. It also consists of many race-related issues too, by answering the questions and queries of other users on the site about things they have seen or need advice on. You could read it for hours and doesn’t disappoint on the meme front.
