For this week’s white prompt, here is my bottom – plain and simple.
Two years ago this weekend many of us were in shock about the Brexit vote. Yesterday, to mark the anniversary, more than 100,000 people marched in London demanding a people’s vote on the final deal, including me, LoveLustLondon and Eye. It was a lovely sunny day full of noise, camaraderie and a sense of togetherness.
There maybe more humour in today’s photos than the ones from two years ago, but I’m just as passionate that we should try and do everything we can to stop it.

I’ve shamelessly copied Exhibit A’s #bankholidaybumday photo today and am channeling the cover of Queen’s Fat Bottomed Girls. With a little addition! I was gifted a Rocks Off vibrating plug by Tabitha Rayne at Eroticon. Thank you very much – it’s a very enjoyable addition to my toy drawer. Although it’s not actually spending much time in the drawer at the moment!
“My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.”
Exposing 40 has taken a bit of a leap across the decades this weekend, but if this blog is about celebrating our bodies as they age then this woman is an example to us all. The wonderful Eye turned 60 this week so I’m delighted to share some photos I shot back in the autumn.
Happy birthday Eye, may your sixties be a decade of celebration and one in which you now thrive. Xx

I’ve written before about meeting two wonderful women in 2016, naked and on stage at a life drawing class at the WOW festival. On a cold (although little did we know what weather was just around the corner!) Saturday in January we headed off for an outdoor adventure. Here’s the first photo from that day out. Just look at this fabulous Frida Kahlo jacket and awesome silver DMs! If you’re based near Bath and want to check out where my friend got her awesome jacket visit this shop.
I’m taking part in Molly’s February Photofest this year. For the last week or two I’ve been busy working on 28 photos for 28 days. I’ve decided to make my February Photofest entirely black and white so I’ve been pushing contrast, accentuating shadows and wondering how dark is too dark? As an antidote, today I decided to go for colours so light and soft they’re almost pastel. So, here, clad in white lace, is my peachy arse.
