HELP- In the name of Feminism!!!

26 Aug

Hey again!

I’m back from holiday- it was beautiful but reception-less so apologies if you’re waiting for an e-mail from me! I think I’m up to date now but if you are waiting, do tell me.
We went to the Peak District for a week, which was very much needed and very beautiful. So much so that I’ll be touring the area for a short time at the end of October, and again next year! If you’d like to be put on my mailing list, let me know and I’ll keep you updated with my travel plans. I’ll post some photos next entry… and believe me, you are going to want to see this entry as I have some huge news…

Anyway… I entered a writing competition recently, for well-known feminist online magazine Feministing. The prize is a regular contribution slot so for obvious reasons, the idea of winning this is a dream come true.
It would mean the world to me if you read the two pieces I entered and if you commented (sign up in one easy step, or sign in if you use wordpress) , I’d be even happier!

Jeremy Kyle- Give women some credit! (It’s about claiming responsibility over our bodies and reproductive rights)

What happens after you save the world? (Female rights fighters- where are they now?)

Thanks so much- you rock.

Also, while I’m here and it’s my birthday, THANKYOU THANKYOU THANKYOU to the very kind fans who have sent me birthday wishes and presents from my wishlist. I’ve really been overwhelmed and had some very lovely surprises waiting for me when I Β returned home from holiday. Return surprises are currently on their way to those fans. πŸ˜€
Keep an eye out for my next entry- I’m off to have a Harry Potter marathon, with homemade raspberry creme brulee!

Have a fantastic day, everyone!


What a lovely day. :)

Good evening!

So, after a very strenuous day of shooting contortion suspension bondage yesterday with Clover and Wykd-Dave, I woke up, crawled out of bed with many “owwwwww”s and decided I would in no way spend today in front of the computer. So I didn’t. Instead we packed up our stuff, dashed to Sainsbury’s and drove off in the sun toward the beach. It was not the beach I was aiming for, but still it was very lovely. Could’ve done with a naked lady, but still…

Looking up at the sky!

After stuffing ourselves with french baguette, cheese, artichokes and nectarines, we went for a walk (and found teeny circular Hobbit-houses!), then home for the Olympic opening ceremony. Just saw Annie Lennox- can I go everywhere in a giant pirate ship please? (UPDATE: But a transparent octopus would also be acceptable).
I can’t imagine what it would be like to be the best in the world at something. It must be an amazing feeling to wake up in the morning knowing that no-one is better at, say, running than you. (Though every time I’ve seen Usain Bolt interviewed, I find him INSUFFERABLY arrogant.)
Here’s me, definitely not about to run a race (but I do now think of starting positions looking at the photo)!

I then opened my e-mail for a quick check and found a very nice reference from Clover herself! (I still get a little nervous when I see I have a reference, as I often berate myself for not doing something, or doing too much of something during a shoot!) I don’t ever want to just assume that I’ve done a wonderful job. I didn’t have to worry this time as here’s the refence: πŸ™‚

“WykD_Dave and I had a wonderful shoot yesterday with Roswell. Put in 100%, very easy going and fun to collaborate with. Roswell is incredibly flexible and worked very hard in some challenging ties on a Shibari bondage shoot.
I can not recommend working with her enough.

Can’t wait to see the pictures- it was my first time working with one of these:

I’m still waiting for permission to post some rather colourful photos from a certain fashion show but as soon as I get it, you can have a look πŸ˜‰ Keep checking back…

Thankyou also to the fans who have just subscribed, and the people who have sent me birthday gifts recently! A personalised surprise is on its way back to you. πŸ™‚ If you’d like to be one of those people, my wishlist is here- click the link. πŸ™‚

I have a few days to catch up with my writing and e-mails so if you’re waiting for a message from me, you’ll hear from me very soon! Have a lovely week!


A teaser…

More pictures are coming from this shoot, but it’s by G Haskew and features gorgeous pants by Lux Tenebrae.

As I’m sort of on holiday right now, it’s the shortest entry ever today but I’ll post you a proper entry tomorrow when I’m back. πŸ˜‰ Today, I swam in a lake, got my picture taken, and am staying in a beautiful flat surrounded by all the wildlife in the world.

And here is my bum.
