10 Things That Will Change as Soon as You Have Kids....
From the moment I had my son, my life changed. I know it sounds cliche, I used to hear people say it and roll my eyes. But it really, really does change everything. Whether you want it to or not, there are certain changes that are pretty much out of your control unless you are some sort of superhero/have the funds to hire an army to do everything for you; which, let's face it, in this day and age, people rarely do. That is especially true if you happen to live in central London like myself and my partner.
Best Headphones for DJing
The art of DJing is often overlooked. Before I started, I honestly thought it was as easy as pressing play on a CDJ and watching the crowd go wild... anyone could do it, right? I didn’t realise the complexity of accurately beat matching, especially in a club setting. The time and effort it takes to build a standout set, meticulously select the tracks, and then read the crowd's response to said tracks and find interesting and exciting ways of mixing the setlist to keep the audiences attention—everything that goes into performing and writing a GOOD DJ set is pretty hard work.
11 Things About Labour and Birth That No One Talks About
Two weeks ago, I gave birth to my first son Roman. He arrived at 6AM on January 8, four days early, on the date I wanted. I asked my belly and he listened. He shares his birthday with Bowie, Elvis, and Stephen Hawking, and I have never been so overwhelmed with love and emotion in my life. Everyone tells you, "You don’t know love till you have kids."
9 Reasons Mom-Shaming Needs to Stop
I haven’t even given birth to my son yet and I have already been mom shamed for certain decisions I am making with my pregnancy, nursery, life as a mother, etc. I have always dreamed of being a mother and felt it was part of my reason for being. I didn’t realise how hard I would find pregnancy and the coming to terms with the fact it was actually happening. The life changing decision to have a child REALLY is a life changing one, every single person I know has had a different journey with parenthood, and it is time we stopped shaming people for doing things "differently" to our perceived perfect picture of parenting.
The 10 Best Books About Veganism Ever Written
The stigma surrounding veganism continues to grow, but so does its ever rising popularity. As more and more people realise the benefits of a plant based diet, the movement has begun to take over the mainstream media. Unfortunately, there will always be nay sayers, there will always be those who respond to any factual argument with 'But bacon tho!'... Yeah, you're smart and funny. Bet you get all the laughs down the pub.
10 Behind the Scenes Secrets of Porn
I stumbled into the sex industry at the age of 18—that was 13 long years ago, so it’s safe to say I know my way around. Doing everything from stripping and feature dancing, to full on hardcore porn all over the globe, for the biggest names in the industry, winning awards (yes we have them), and gracing the covers of magazines.
Pregnancy Sex: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
One of my main concerns about being pregnant was that I wouldn’t want to have sex, that my partner wouldn’t find me attractive anymore, and that I wouldn’t feel attractive in myself. I was worried that, after birth, things would be different, and of course they will be! I will have a baby and a new body both inside and out… things may not quite be where they were before. I am still pretty terrified of how to cope with these changes, but I am very lucky to have a wonderfully loving and supportive partner who has been nothing less than a dream throughout my pregnancy.
How to Use Yoga to Heal Injuries
Yoga is a huge part of my life and has been for going on eight years now, before I did my teacher training I would take every kind of yoga imaginable. It is a common misconception that yoga is only for the white, middle class, chai latte drinking, designer legging wearing, skinny, hipster girl. I see every shape, size, race and gender at my classes, and every single person is there for their own special reason.
