The Fashion Victims

H&M Jumper Post

 

Who are Fashion Victims? Read this and find out…..

 

Most of the clothes we pick up from the high street and luxury stores, are manufactured in Asia. Even most of the clothing labels that claim to be made in the UK, are actually manufactured in Asia. It could be a final piece added to the clothes, like a zip for example, that could warrant a ‘made in the UK’ label.

The whole idea behind manufacturing clothes in Asia factories, is to keep the costs as low as possible, and to achieve the highest profits possible. Bangladesh factories attract a lot of clothing companies, could be because of the $38 monthly wage, and the lack of adequate health and safety regulations.

Most of these factory workers are women like me, working extremely long hours, in overcrowded factories with substandard facilities for a very low wage. 95% of UK bloggers won’t accept $38 for a sponsored post, but yet these women and men, work very long and hard, for little compensation in return. I know $38 can do a lot more in Asia than in this part of the world, but still, it is too little, compared to the profits these clothing companies make on a yearly basis.

In the news, we keep reading about various preventable factory fires, killing thousands of these workers, and yet some of these factories are still operating in dangerous working conditions. The fashion companies are not doing enough to make sure the working conditions in the factories are safe, or are they turning a blind eye?

Well, someone needs to take responsibility for the voiceless fashion victims. For the women and people who have no choice but work in these factories to sustain themselves and their families. Someone needs to take responsibility, the fashion companies need to take responsibilities for their ’employees’. We as consumers, need to take responsibility for our purchases.

I try not to shop in stores, famous for using such factories, but some of us do not have a choice, because some of these stores sell their pieces dead cheap, and for those on a tight budget, they can’t be bothered with the whole politics of factory workers. It seems too far away for some of us to care, but I do care.

What are your thoughts on this? Do you think of the working conditions of these factory workers when you shop? I need to know. Drop me a comment, let’s chat.

Thanks for reading.

My Laser Hair Removal Journey: The Third Session

My Laser Hair Removal Journey: The Third Session

Hey peeps. If you have been following my laser hair removal journey series, you would know I was due for my third session sometime in January at Laser Chic, Manchester premier laser and skin care clinic. Well, I had my third laser hair removal session some weeks ago, and I am happy to say it went as well as my previous sessions. It was as quick as my last 2 sessions, it was about 10 minutes for the actual treatment, which was great. To start the treatment, I got my makeup off my chin with some wipes, and got on the green chair as you can see above, and we got to work.

As this is my third session, my chin hair is gradually thinning out, so it was a little bit more uncomfortable than the previous sessions, because the thinner the hair, the more difficult it is for the laser machine to spot it. The level of heat on the machine was slightly increased, so I felt the heat a tiny bit more, but it was bearable.

I am half way with the laser sessions now, and I have been told the last three sessions may be more uncomfortable than the previous sessions, because my chin hair will be getting thinner and thinner, and the level of heat will need to be increased, but I am a BIG girl, so I can take it, lol..

Having this treatment done is one of the best things I have ever done for ME, next to having my second ear hole piercings. I remember having my chin hair waxed or threaded off every 4 weeks, and how I use to dread those sessions, especially the threading bit because it was just too painful All that is now a distant memory. I know I may be needing top-ups yearly or so, but that is nothing compared to having to get them chin hairs off every month.

What are yourr thoughts? Are you a hairy one like me? Drop me a comment, let’s chat.

Thanks for reading.

 

**I received the treatment in exchange for a review but all words are MINE.
