“There is no shortcut. It takes time to build a better, stronger version of yourself.”
For 7 years of my life, I felt broken and worthless. In what should be an exciting time for a young adult to explore herself sexually and have some fun, my body had other ideas for me. I was 18 years old, dating my first serious boyfriend and was so excited for what life had […]
I have only recently jumped on the bandwagon of masturbation. I was always happy for others who did it. In fact, I envied them for being so comfortable about it. But when it came to myself I felt dirty, ashamed and guilty. Having never even looked at my own vulva in the mirror before until […]

I am a sucker for an elaborate self-care day once in a while. Buying beauty products and dedicating some time to treating myself is heaven for me. I love telling my family to have a long soak in the bath for sore muscles and to take care of themselves. But what about the days when […]
