Me and My Body

So this week I received a DM on Instagram by a girl asking me about my weight and height, so that she could compare herself to me. I think she was a bot, because she obviously hasn’t seen my cellulite. But the whole thing got me thinking about my relationship with my body, how it … More Me and My Body

Dating as a pole dancer: things (mostly) men have said to me

Since I’ve become a pole dancer, I have noticed that most people believe that I either have a very exciting love life, or that I’m a big hoe. I love expectation versus reality scenarios, so I thought I could compare what (mostly) men have told me with my very unexciting dating life for a laugh.

If you’ve been following my social media spam, you already know I spent my Friday at Stylist Live by Stylist at the Olympia.

This year however I managed to get free tickets to the event and I spent a busy, … More My favourite bits of Stylist Live 2017

Sunday Roast at OSLO Hackney

God, I missed Britain. Sure, the perpetual clouds, greyness and drizzle will end up annoying me by the time Spring comes, but getting a Sunday roast at a pub in Australia just felt kinda wrong. All I wanted was smoothie bowls and poké. So what better way to embrace London’s perennial state of Autumn than … More Sunday Roast at OSLO Hackney

Drinks behind bars at Alcotraz London

Guard: “Lady, what are you trying to do? GET INTO THAT JUMPSUIT!” Me [wearing an awfully impractical tight pink dress]: “Sorry sir, just trying not show too much here!” My friend Mariola, who knows my pole dancer Insta feed all too well: “That is the first time I’ve ever heard here say that.” No, this … More Drinks behind bars at Alcotraz London
