11 Years

1st February 2019

11 years. I’ve been ranting and raving in my little corner of the internet for 11 years. Wowowowow. I should almost consider myself a veteran in the game to be honest. I remember starting my blog (which was called something ridiculous at the time) on the 31st of January 2008 while I was in University. […]

I Got the Juice

10th January 2019

“Hello again! It’s your friendly neighbourhood body acceptance advocate coming through to tell you yet again how important it is to love your body, and to dress unapologetically in whatever you wear.” Except sometimes, that’s not always the case. Let me give the above some context. I’ve been on this slow-ass train to self-love and […]

“BoDY PoSiTiVitY = sToP SHOwInG oFf YouR bODy”

3rd October 2018

Oh hello there. It’s been a while (especially since posting a lingerie post!) but I thought I’d briefly speak on a topic that’s been annoying me for a while, surrounding the ever popular, Body Positivity. A lot of you may know by now that I longer consider myself a part of the current ‘body positivity […]
