PMM – Response to the Guardian Piece on Polyamory

Poly Means Many: there are many aspects of Polyamory. Each month, the PMM bloggers will write about their views on one of them. Links to all posts can be found on Poly Means Many. This month we’re looking at the recent Guardian piece by Emer O’Toole about polyamory. I’m always wary when polyamory is portrayed in the media…too often as a way of… Read more →

Lady Voluptuous ‘Medusa’ dress – a review

It’s no secret that I love all things retro (and vintage repro), and as a curvy woman it’s important to me to find a dress which flatters my shape, and makes me feel great all at the same time. So when I heard that the lovely Georgina of Fuller Figure Fuller Bust had teamed up with the folks at Lady… Read more →

Doll Corset

Corseting…

My mum is getting married later on this year, and we – the bridesmaids – have been blessed with the most beautiful dresses from Vivien of Holloway (not to mention the beautiful Vivienne Westwood shoes, but those aren’t nearly as relevant to this post). As a fuller figured woman (that’s putting it mildly, to be honest) I got my mum… Read more →

Burlesque Bodies

I still remember my first burlesque show – over ten years ago now, I borrowed a friends corset so I could look the part, I took the exciting trip through to Edinburgh and loved every performer. I even took to the stage during the interval as part of a competition and twirled tassles (admittedly, badly) for the first ever time.… Read more →

Dating

This is a response post to the Poly Means Many topic of the month on “Dating” I wasn’t sure I was going to date after I found myself in the happy poly family I’m in. A combination of allowing my current relationships to find their own paths and nervousness of reaching back into the world of online dating seemed to… Read more →

And then the million dollar question…

I’ve been trying to consciously write some more, and so when Mr UrbanVox himself was offering guest blog posts I jumped at the chance. And here the post is… I’m 28. My sister is 20. I remember vividly being her age. I remember the agonising sense of crushing self-awareness – but not the good kind; the kind which left me… Read more →

What being poly has taught me…

Or rather…what being in a positive poly relationship has taught me… This is a response post to Poly Means Many where this month their topic was on what being poly has taught them. I’m coming at this from a slightly different slant, purely because years ago I was in a poly relationship which was an example of every single relationship… Read more →

“Paul McKenna – I Can Make You Thin…” – Can he?

I’ve tried the Paul McKenna “I Can Make You Thin…” approach before. Well, when I say tried, I actually mean I started it, thought about it for a few days, listened to the CDs and then felt guilty for a few days after that I’d yet again abandoned a weight loss technique whilst bemoaning the fact that I am so fat*!… Read more →

Insecurity

Insecurity is a funny thing. Right when you can be feeling your happiest, most carefree it rears its’ ugly little head and smacks you in the face. I find insecurity a strange emotion to deal with. For years, I would project my insecurity onto other people. “He/She/They *must* think this of me and therefore I feel insecure about X”. But… Read more →
