Music music music. I’ve found some great new songs and they make me feel fabulous!

Dancing. In my room, in the kitchen, whilst brushing my teeth in the bathroom.

Positive, proud messages.

The cup of tea. Feeling grown up and in control.

The sky between the building as the sun set. It was better than this photo. By about a million.

Meeting the Maya Centre and agreeing to volunteer for their art sessions to encourage body positivity. I feel *so* good about this. It brings together so many facets of my life and my skills and my passions. Vagina education, reclaiming your body, being proud of your genitals, fighting mental health, recovery from sexual assault, helping women, being part of the sisterhood, art and crafts and how they can help with healing, using my facilitator and trainer skills and doing more volunteering. This just feels so good. I’m so proud of me.

I’m an auntie! Freddie is here. He’s massive. They are all happy and healthy.

Hearing about how great Ben was throughout it all. As I knew he would. And also chatting to him more.

I really enjoyed Bake Off this week. And it was fun to watch with Jonny.

Having a meeting with Matthew and having him tell me that he still wants me to go work for him when I can. Which is great!

Telling that story to Stuart and seeing him be proud and happy for me.

Having a lovely, coupley time in the pub.

Putting up my exhibition of clean air posters made by kids. It looks so sweet! I’m really happy with it.

Itsu lunch. Because this week needs it.

Just being with Jonny in the flat, making silly jokes, sharing chocolate, watching him play Assassin’s Creed. We’ve definitely settled in now.

(Plus the beautiful vulva pin and being a photo of Han looking all pregnant and lovely)

Putting up the signs for my Clean Air Walk and feeling just so mega proud of myself for having done it all.

Having Han in London and Jo back from holiday. We all hung out at our house. That was nice.

Sharing my bed with Han and having those nice late night chats with the light off.

A new water bottle. From a beautiful design shop.

Realising how cool it is that I’ve been asked to be on a panel.

Bright blue skies today.

Flowers on my way to work

Spoken word night for feminists. Some incredible women and amazing poems.

Running for the bus down the middle of the road afterwards.

An email from a women on Friday, thanking us for what we did and saying she’s now signed up for therapy. Such an incredible feeling.

We took BOW to WOW. And it was amazing.

One woman told us it was the reason she bought a ticket for WOW.

Meeting Mary.

Getting it all done ready for WOW tomorrow. And having a little dance. And feeling like I’ve really properly smiled for the first time in a few days.

Putting up an image of me on Instagram from BOW. It felt scary but exciting. It’s happening now. Happy International Women’s Day.

My new plate. Whoops.

Doing the pitch. I did it. And I did it well. Whatever the outcome is.

My new water bottle. Hello Joseph Joseph.

What felt like a good estate agent conversation. I hope that one of these two flats is it. And less stress without other people viewing them.

Free hat with the big tampon and pad deliveries! Yay! #freeperiods

Having to cut off a conversation with dad because 3600 tampons were arriving on my doorstep. When I text him to apologise he said not many dad’s would hear that story from their daughter and he was proud of me for helping a good cause. He’s such a babe. 

Stuart came round mine and drunk weird strawberry gin with my housemates and it was lovely. I like having him here to stay.


Travel Man. Silly. Funny. 

Seeing Toby and Jane and Granny at the theatre. 

Watching Han’s incredible students perform The Tempest. It was so good. I was so proud of her and all her kids. I’m glad I made the effort to go down for it. 

Beautiful sunny London. It’s so perfect when it looks like this.

Meeting a woman who organises WOW and pitching two ideas to her. She loved both of them! I’m so proud of us for pitching so well. Fingers crossed we make it into the festival. 

Buying a new bag. It was tan. I had to.

And a fourth, dinner at Jo’s with her brother and fianc√©. It was really nice. Maybe a friend extension.


Pizza and beer at Crate to welcome home Bivan.

The sky as we came home.

Doing a pretty good job at my training in Leytonstone. I’m proud of myself. 


Walking off the day through the park on the way home.

Feeling pretty good about my application.

Watching RuPaul clips. Still can’t get over ‘Category is’. Sickening.

The Greg Knight campaign jingle. What a muppet. Also – winfarms. 

Having a talk with myself whilst at the gym. And remembering that moment at Primavera where I felt on top of the world. Friends, music, tattoo. Everything felt perfect.

Han texting to tell me she’s so proud of me when she saw my Vagina Museum post.

Coming home to see that Jonny had left my room looking immaculate. Minimalist mates forever.

Getting the budget. Or a bit of it at least.

Facemasks and vulvas.


Did a good interview. Pretty proud of myself.

A day working in the garden.

A picnic with Holly in the evening sun.

Finishing all the decorating. Everything looked beautiful for…
The big launch of my hub. It went so well. I’m so proud of myself. And now I can sleep.
Fish pie with Becky and a beer with my face on it.

The dream team. Me, Froggy and Rochelle setting up the hub. They make me laugh so much. Andy with his drill and Rochelle’s slippers. The place looks amazing, I’m so proud of myself.
Uniqlo date night with Jonny. It was SO. GOOD. That is the best Uniqlo ever and I spent ¬£100 and I don’t even care.
Icco pizza. Oh god I could eat a hundred in one go. I wish it never ended.

Basically just such a great day. So positive. So buzzed. I’m actually doing this.

Huge lemons. The one on the left is a regular to large size lemon. The other one is massive!
Giggling over wine with women.
Walking home, walking tall, walking proud.

The wonderful, amazing, brilliant day we had running our first pop-up. It went perfectly – loads of people, tons of laughs and just an all round success. Really proud of myself and my friend. We did it!

Christmas dinner with our friends. Food, crackers, food, games and food. A wonderful end to the day.

The ADORABLE puppy that came into the pop up and stayed for ages. We didn’t want it to leave.
