The Favourite. Olivia Coleman is an actual hero.

Finding out I can use the money for Period Parties! 🤩

Feeling good. Good fun chats with Jonny in the kitchen and remembering why I feel so good about the volunteering

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.

Volunteering in the morning, packing up Christmas hampers for lonely old people in the borough.

Bought our teeny tiny Christmas tree. She’s adorable.

Having a dog friend whilst getting my hair cut.

A lovely coffee in the sun with Jo and deciding to set up Bloody Women. Or something similar.

Volunteering at BGP. I wasn’t really looking forward to it but it was actually really nice.

An afternoon with Jen. Sun walks, a picnic in the park and Floundering with Maria.

Getting this message from someone on This is a Vagina. So lovely.

Yep. Four today. It’s been a lovely day.


Discovering Hyrrs (feminist hymns) and doing a couple of hours volunteering for Bloody Good Period, sorting out tampons and pads and eating mince pies.

Travelling around London and everyone is happy and smiling and carrying big bags full of presents to take home for Christmas. 

Everyone together for Christmas in B&H’s house. Indian food, fire, family. So lovely. Let Christmas begin!

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.

Volunteering for Bloody Good. Going and setting up their new extra storage unit. I didn’t really want to go out on the rain but it was really good and I’m so glad I did it.

Being interviewed by Jinan about my vulva t-shirts for their Christmas newsletter. After a day of doing lots of vagina and BOW work. It’s great to have this time to work on all this stuff.

The KBT Christmas party. Pizza, cheese, tequila and beer pong. Highlight was chucking around aaaalllll the balls. And my vulva present from Jen.


Volunteering for the Foodbank. It was a good three hours of smiling and chatting and doing.

Going to see the space at Southbank for BOW at WOW. It’s going to be so good!

Our workshop for BOW in the evening. Lovely feminist friends, coming together to help us and give us ideas and energy and love. We came up with a great idea and I can’t wait to see it happen!

Accidental loud fart. Very loud.

Yummy, moist carrot cake.

Becoming an official volunteer and having my skills very highly sung in the WhatsApp group.


Wearing my new CHOOSE LOVE t-shirt, doing my teeny tiny bit for the refugees

Not needing any concealer, not wearing any mascara (mainly because of sneezy eyes) but still looking like a total babe. Really feeling myself today.

Talking Period Parties with Binti. I’m excited to be doing something!
