    Age-ism is so real, purely from the fact that is so deeply ingrained into daily life – from casual jokes to marketing campaigns, it’s everywhere. I feel like it’s something that’s swept under the rug at every opportunity but at the same time, it has such a major presence. Really enjoyed this one, Ashton said some amazing things. xx
