It’s that time of the year when romantic relationships are at the forefront of everyone’s mind, and with that Valentine’s Day can be particularly trigging for women in an abusive relationship, as well as survivors.
Our Editor, Expect Respect Ambassador & Author @lolostubbs.author teamed up with actress @bhavnalimbachia to create this extremely powerful video bringing Lolo’s novel, Dressed up as Love, to life for our Valentine’s Campaign. Highlighting (as the name of the book itself suggests) abusive behaviours that are ‘Dressed up as ‘love’’
Farah Nazeer, chief executive of Women’s Aid, said: “This campaign helps spread the vital message that many behaviours commonly perceived to be romantic – such as jealousy, demanding constant contact and somebody wanting you all to themselves – are actually dangerous.”
To check out Lolo’s emotional and thought-provoking book Dressed up as Love, please visit www.lolostubbs.com see the link in @lolostubbs.author bio – 20% of proceeds are donated to Women’s Aid so we can support more women and children.
If something doesn’t feel right in your relationship, Women’s Aid is here for you. We will listen, understand, and believe you.
Thank you to all of the incredible women that took part in this powerful video, including our very own Auntie Cath raising awareness about the emotional impact of domestic abuse.
I just wanted to share a little recipe that I’ve made with my kids, to get rid of the left over Easter egg chocolate that sits in the cupboard calling your name every time you walk past! It’s a chocolate bark smash full of lots of healthy ingredients that the kids will love to add along the way.
