    SMEAR TESTS & TREATMENT.

      Let’s talk vaginas. It is Cervical Screening Awareness Week after all… Last year I wrote about my experience of going for my first smear test.

    THE PERFECT BODY.

    Victoria’s Secret are under fire today, for their rather bold ‘Perfect Body’ campaign… And quite rightly so. Their new range of lingerie claims to encapsulate everything that a perfect piece of underwear should – but their message? Is completely muddied by their incredibly insensitive advertising.

    GETTING NAKED ON THE INTERNET.

    Today is my birthday. The day I turn 26. And this time last year my life completely changed. I got naked, had a photo shoot and shared the images on the internet. In the hope that maybe I could shake the self-doubt I’d carried for years. I explained how I’d struggled with body confidence my[...]
