What’s lurking in the water? Sharks?

The Western Australia shark cull has widely been spoken about, debated, gained media coverage and questioned inevitably sparking quite the debate worldwide, some joyous and others disgusted.

It is understandable that some agree to the killing spree of sharks along the Western Australian Coast and other parts of Australia due to the recent and frequent deaths. However it is also understandable there are mass protests against this quite simply barbaric way of dealing with things.

In my opinion and mine solely I believe that killing an already threatened species won’t make much of a change except in the ecosystem because whether we like it or not even the dangerous, ugly & weird animals are all needed to do their part and have a place in this world. After all we have came a long way, stopping finning in most countries and other harmful issues to marine life are rather big achievements compared to previous centuries but now it seems all of that has been temporarily disregarded.

Understandably some people are pro shark culling and that is purely because they see sharks as killing machines, ruthless through and through but I think if more people were shown true statistics (see if there are any info-graphics, they’re a fun way to learn stats!) then a majority would be less resentful of sharks but evidentially this wouldn’t stop shark attacks obviously, so it is imperative to provide the public and those interested with the proper information and preventative measures of avoiding a shark attack. Further to the previous point another reason a proportion of people are pro shark culling is because of the recent and tragic deaths or attacks on those within the sea, it is however deeply saddening whenever someone passes no matter what the cause.

Sharks are an amazingly strong, agile apex marine predator and are my favourite animal (who would’ve guessed! :p) so I just thought I’d throw in a little blog post because of the current situation regarding sharks 🙂

Hope you enjoyed reading it and remember it’s just my opinion! 🙂

Going Nautical This Summer

So the temperature has cranked itself way above the normal average for England and has made it perfect beach weather and what better way to shine with style at the beach than dressed in one of this summer’s favourite wardrobe trends – Nautical!

Looking like a sailor has never been so fun! In the past if you told somebody you wanted to look similar to that of a man that stays on a ship for long periods of time, you probably would’ve just got some weird looks and glances. But now thanks to marvelous world of fashion this vibrantly quirky reoccurring trend is making its debut once again!

Think anchors, ships, blazers with gold embellished buttons and stripes! Blue, red and white are the most commonly associated colour with the nautical trend and it’s such a great style to pull off because the colours are so complimenting of each other. This summer however all our favourite stores and retailers are quickly equipping nautical themed stock, there will be a mass of our favourite clothing pieces mixed with this quirky and fun style and will be sure to bring the sailor out of you!

10 Things I Want To Do From My Bucket List

A while ago (roughly 2 years ago) I started writing a bucket list of things I want to do, being ambitious and someone who loves new things and adventures my list has some pretty crazy things on it, but also some very cool easy going things that I wanted to do and try as well! My list is phenomenally long going into the hundreds so I thought I’d share 15 random things that are on it! 🙂

  1. Swim with sharks – I genuinely really want to do this more than anything, I love sharks they’re my favourite animal and I know an incredible useless amount of knowledge on them as well but I think they’re great because they’re fierce and beautiful at the same time. I think to start with I want to swim with sharks in an aquarium as I’m quite scared of the sea, but if I get over that fear then I’d like to swim with some different types of shark in the ocean as well, maybe Black tip reef sharks and whale sharks 🙂
  2. Ride on an Elephant – I would love to ride on an Elephant, they’re so big and quite cute and I’d love to have a photo taken with one!
  3. Go Skydiving – It would be undeniably scary but that’s part of the thrill I guess, plus you’d see some killer views on the way down which would be something unforgettable!
  4. See Northern Lights – I know lots of people who want to do this as well, I think this would be amazing and a beautiful experience which I’d treasure.
  5. Make 1000 Origami Cranes – There is a Japanese legend that whoever makes 1000 origami cranes will be granted a wish, this is something I’d love to do as I learnt how to make origami cranes really well, its just it would take a crazy amount of time!
  6. Experience Holi or a colour festival – Holi is a festival celebrated mainly in India or Nepal and a colour festival is celebrated in South Africa Durban, I’d love to go to one of these events the powders looks so colourful and bright I think it would be amazing.
  7. Go to a fashion show – I’d love to go to a big worldwide fashion show in one of the major cities this would be amazing to see the catwalks and designers as well as the upcoming latest styles.
  8. Hold a bird of prey – Not many people wish to hold a bird of prey but I’m a little different, I love animals and I love to admire their beauty and birds of prey like Eagles are much like sharks in the sense that they are fierce but also beautiful.
  9. Swim with Manta rays – I think manta rays are really incredible, I love how smooth and calm they are and I think it would be an unforgettable experience to swim with them.
  10. Travel everywhere on my travel list – This is a big one that wont be completed for a long time, but will eventually be completed because I love travelling and aim to finish my list 🙂

Well that’s ten random things from my bucket list! Hope you enjoyed!
