Guinness, Irish Cream, Coffee and Chocolate Jello Shots

These sound so intriguing! If you love Guinness or Baileys could be worth a try!

Ive loved experimenting with jelly shots! I have made vodka jelly ones and at Christmas made some gin and tonic jelly shots and served in a cut out lemon! These went down very well with my boyfriends family during some games on Christmas day!

Im definitely going to try these Guinness and baileys ones but they do require some more specific ingredients I will have to hunt down. Such as the Patron Cafe which after some googling have realised it is a type of coffee tequila!! Could be more expensive which can be a downfall of making more unusual things, so perhaps save for a special occasion! (Like next Christmas!)

The Troubling History of ‘Physical Descriptions’ of Women in the News

Interesting reflections on how women were (and maybe still are) described in media stories and what that means. Where weight and appearance were irrelevant to a story they were still commented on whereas not so much for men. This to me is odd but I think reflects a common trend that in any story women are often looked at for their physical appearance and not for the story itself. This also makes me think about all the stories that are purposely about women’s weight in magazines; comparing celebrities weight etc. It makes me think and worry how we are still such an appearance driven society which is partially fueled by continuous media portrayal.  Raising awareness of the negative aspects of what we are reading is surely one way forward to steer away from focusing on body image!
