Girl Power: 4 key tips for being more assertive

It’s the age of feminism and equality, and we love that women are finally starting to get some of the recognition they deserve. However, it’s not always easy to show some woman power in the workplace, especially when there’s a damaging stereotype that women who exert power or leadership are “bossy”, “aggressive” or “moody”. This isn’t true, of course, but when women are raised to be seen and not heard, it can be hard to break out of the boxes we’re put into. At Cohorted, we believe that every woman should be able to show their power, but we also know it can be scary to try this, so we’ve got 4 tips to help you show your...

The secret to flawless skin

A lot of women think the secret of having flawless and perfect skin is by using expensive skincare products, doing crazy treatments or simply due to genetics. But that’s not the case! Anyone can have flawless skin if you follow these tips carefully.   Healthy Diet   It’s no surprise that maintaining a healthy diet is the first tip to get flawless skin. The food you consume plays a huge part when it comes to your skin. You can notice a difference when you eat junk food versus when you eat healthy food. You don’t need to maintain a strict diet, it’s all about having a healthy balance. In addition, some people are allergic to certain foods or ingredients, for instance some...

Just be yourself

"Why fit in when you were born to stand out?” Dr. Seuss   We were all born with our own unique identity, a creative mind and no boundaries. Through childhood, many of us were conditioned to believe we should ‘be’ a certain way. Boundaries were set according to our upbringing, and we may have been taught to work hard at school, always try our best, speak nicely, have good table manners and be kind to others. This would be our set of tools to help navigate our way through life and be accepted by society. But what happened along the way to make us feel we should fit in to be accepted? What is this ‘perfect’ body that is dressed,...

The power of podcasts

It's the simplicity of listening to a podcast that appeals to the audience. They're highly engaging and relatable, you’re in control of what you want to hear, and you get to check in with your favourite hosts every time a new episode is uploaded. The most pleasant part of a podcast is of course having a real sense of personal connection - if we're not having physical connections then these on-demand audios are certainly the next best thing. Why Should We Listen to Podcasts? The motivation and inspiration you gain from podcasts is pretty incredible. As mentioned earlier you have a sense of personal connection with those host/presenters you listen to and you connect with them on another level,...

CBD: what’s the hype?

CBD. Cannabis. Hemp. A topical subject that is on-going for all industries. Its power is recognised, but the plant is often put in the media for negative influence. It’s time individuals really understood the potential benefits that the cannabis plant can offer to the human body. The negative stigma attached to Cannabis is just one reason the potential healing powers of CBD are being overlooked. Understanding that the CBD element itself is a non-psychoactive extract from the cannabis plant is step one in gaining knowledge on how this little ingredient may change your life. The human body has natural receptors for cannabis extracts, making them work faster. Disclaimer: there is no THC in CBD products; you will not...

How your beauty regime can save the world

Every year, over 120 billion units of packaging are produced every year by the cosmetics industry. That’s according to Zero Waste Week, the annual campaign that aims to increase awareness around sustainable living. Experts estimate that by 2050, the amount of plastic in the ocean will weigh more than the amount of fish. I’m not suggesting that you ditch the beauty routine whatsoever – or even ditch your favourite brands – but there are changes that we can make. They may be small to us, but will have a colossal impact on our environment.   Swap out single use-items for reusable ones This is the most obvious. Not only are makeup wipes BAD FOR OUR SKIN, abrasive and leave your precious...

Hi my name is Chelsea and I'm forever overthinking.   Whenever I’m feeling a bit burnt out or overwhelmed, the fear inevitably starts to set in and I swiftly begin to fall down the worry well. If you’re a chronic overthinker like me, you will know first hand how much of a vicious cycle it can be, how it can leave you feeling anxious and full of dread. I’ve found myself getting lost in my own thoughts again recently and it made me realise just how difficult it can be to break the cycle.

Digital feminism on the rise

Digital feminism on the rise

The rise in social media and the way it is used has given women a new platform to promote gender equality and female empowerment. The opportunities that come with these digital developments allow us to influence and educate others on inequalities helping to encourage global change.

The development of these digital technologies have created more opportunities for women globally, whilst giving us an opportunity to showcase our skills and abilities. Although may be gender-inequalities across cultures when considering the use of these platforms, women are finding comfort in these platforms as a tool to encourage gender equality. We now have more opportunity to spread knowledge, educate, build awareness and influence others. We are the pioneers of...

Rediscover your decorating mojo

Cohorted Cult, Rediscover your decorating mojo

When it comes to decorating, I have two extremes. One minute I'm practically bursting at the seams with excitement, full of inspiration and feeling ready and raring to go. The next I resemble a deflated balloon - pretty flat and full of hot air. My get up and go decides to get up and go without me, leaving me crippled by a case of decorating paralysis.

It's common knowledge that I am incapable of making decisions, but when my decorating mojo has disappeared, this gets taken to a whole other level. Minimalism or maximalism? Neutral tones or bold colours? And basically asking myself things like do I really need another plant? (to which the answer is yes, always). I've...

Let’s Talk About Why We’re Not Talking About Sunscreen

When it comes to everyday beauty, cleansing and moisturising form the basis on which it all begins. It would be (or is) quite shocking when I hear that someone doesn’t wash their face every day and maybe just as shocking if they don’t moisturise. Yet, to hear that many people still don’t wear sunscreen every day is not as shocking – at least not to most. So why isn’t this vital aspect of our routines not routinely talked about? As someone who joined the Instagram beauty community in the past year, something I’m always happy to see is the promotion of a good sunscreen. Anyone in the know when it comes to beauty raves about using sunscreen EVERY. SINGLE....

Instagram is removing likes… now what?

Is the “like culture” over?   Instagram is currently running a test version of the app that hides the number of likes each post gets. Users in Australia, Canada, Brazil, Italy, Ireland, Japan and New Zealand have noticed a change in their timeline, as they’re not able to see how many likes the people they follow have received anymore. Reactions have been mixed so far. According to the company, the trial has been implemented to relieve the pressure on users and let them focus on the content they publish rather than the number of likes they get. Undeniably, the comparison culture created by our perception of other people on social media, Instagram in particular, has had severe mental health consequences...
