I Am Depressed, Please Stop Telling Me to 'Cheer Up'
I am depressed. Please stop telling me to "cheer up." I remember the first time I heard the word "depression." I was 11 and in my first year at secondary school. My best friend at the time had obviously just learnt that this word meant "upset" or "sad" or any adjective that similarly describes a slightly disappointed or uneasy emotion or feeling. She used it to describe anything from there not being the dessert she liked in the lunch hall to having to do P.E. class (to be fair, a pretty depressing experience). I didn’t realise how serious it was to claim you were "depressed." At that age it’s very easy to throw around words without knowing the meaning. Unfortunately, we seem to continue to do so as adults. I actually just did, by claiming that P/E claim was depressing.
Date Nights That Are Actually Surprisingly Sexy...
Whether you are in a brand new relationship or long-term and going strong, it is important to keep things exciting. You know when you get comfortable and every day is a couch day? That’s fine! You can’t have date nights and holidays continuously, especially in the long term when being in each other's lives becomes the norm, but the occasional spontaneous sexy night out is always a welcome surprise and will build memories that you can relive forever. Here are a few of my favourite super sexy date nights that WON’T break your bank account.
Travel Hacks That Will Save You Time and Money
Travelling is wonderful. It is my favourite thing to do, but my god does it end up being expensive if you haven’t planned it correctly. I once booked a one-way ticket to Norway with the idea of traveling around the country with nothing planned. It was the best experience of my life. It was also the most expensive. Being sporadic is great, but I wish I had done some of these things before that trip to make it more financially viable and also so I could have stayed longer!
A Lesson in Feminism and Adult Entertainment for Rudy Giuliani
It’s hard to hold my tongue when I hear people, particularly men, claim that a female who has worked in the sex industry is not allowed an opinion, certain rights, or is not a ‘credible’ source of information.
Home Treatment for Sick Dogs
My pooches are just as much a part of the family as my other half and I, so it’s heart breaking to know they are in pain (or think they are in pain). So many times I wish my dogs could tell me what’s wrong so I can avoid £100 for a quick visit to the vets to be told all is OK.
How to Be More Sex Positive
As a former adult actress, I am more than familiar with sex. I am also familiar with those that deem sex as some sort of demonisation of the body and mind. When thinking about sex and all the wonderful things that come with it, it is important to remember that every single person in the world is different; therefore we can expect peoples views on sex to differ.
Why It Is So Important to Listen to the Warning Signs When Training
Two weeks ago, I tore my hamstring tendon right at the top where the tendon attaches to the bone. I have injured myself before—I hurt my left hamstring at a pole show in Oslo last year, but I push through the pain. I did my right side about six weeks ago, but again pushed through.
Yogis of Instagram: Your Guide on Who to Follow
Instagram has become a mecca for yogis and yoga admirers over the past year or so. With huge companies dishing out large pay checks to Yoga teachers and traveling yogis so that they will wear their clothes, Yoga is now more beautiful and more accessible than ever.
The Future Bass Is Bright
So, last week I gave myself an injury that has made walking, sitting, working, and general life pretty hard. My physio delivered some heartbreaking news and so, to try and cheer myself up, I have finally returned to my monthly mixes. I know, I am crap at keeping on top of it, but hey! I only missed March, to be fair, so I'm not doing that bad...I've decided to give you guys a little bit of Future Bass education. I know this genre isn't for everyone, but I love it, so I'm going to share my love with you....
Cereal Dating With Alison Wonderland
It is a rare occasion that one gets to sit down and really pick the brain of an artist whose style and sound they truly admire, so when I was offered the chance to interview Alison Wonderland, I must admit that I had a small fan girl moment.
Things Women Should Stop Saying to Each Other IMMEDIATELY
OK, I’m just going to put this out there, I am guilty of most of these at some point or another in my life, and I’m pretty sure most of the girls I know are too, but that doesn’t make it OK. I noticed a couple of years ago how toxic some of my friendships with my girlfriends were. We compete, we compare, we bitch, we moan, we attention seek.
Tough Mudder Tips!
It may not seem like it here in the UK, what with the below freezing temperatures and thick snow fall, but Spring is upon us and that means Tough Mudder season is nearly here! Last year I was booked by Lucozade as one of their Tough Mudder "Made To Move" coaches. My job was to travel around the country with my team of fitness coaches and we motivated and trained Mudders in the thousands. It was one of the best experiences of my life, but I couldn’t quite get my head around why ANYONE would want to actually take part in the event itself.
