Forever in debt to your priceless advice

I'm Steph. I live in a small town on the border of Wales. I'm engaged to the most wonderful man in the world and we're parents to two amazing children; Olive and Jasper. Life is sweet.

she-leans-to-the-left I hope you’re ready for erotic pictures of me and my new plush boyfriend.

Just ordered a Daryl Dixon plush toy. I am going to be in heaven when he arrives.

I’ve escaped to the shop for treats because Olive is being such a little cow bag that I need sugar. And lots of it.

My cousin’s little girl only weighed 4lb 10oz! Her first baby was around the same weight. Sadly it means she has to stay on a drip in the early baby unit so they’ve gone home today without her! How rubbish.

What is 50 shades of grey about? And what's so bad about it?

My answer:




50 Shades of Grey was originally fanfiction based on the Twilight series, which was then published as a novel (along with 2 subsequent books). It sold over 100 million copies around the world and topped best-seller lists everywhere. It’s about to be adapted into a film, set to come out early next year.

It follows a college student named Ana Steele, who enters a relationship with a man named Christian Grey and is then introduced to a bastardised and abusive parody of BDSM culture.

While the book is paraded as erotica, the relationship between Ana and Christian is far from healthy. The core mantra of the BDSM community is “safe, sane and consensual”, and 50 Shades is anything but. None of the rules of BDSM practices (which are put in place to protect those involved) are actually upheld. Christian is controlling, manipulative, abusive, takes complete advantage of Ana, ignores safe-words, ignores consent, keeps her uneducated about the sexual practices they’re taking part in, and a multitude of other terrible things. Their relationship is completely sickening and unhealthy.

Basically, “the book is a glaring glamorisation of violence against women,” as Amy Bonomi so perfectly put it. 

It’s terrible enough that a book like this has been absorbed by people worldwide. Now, we have a film that is expected to be a huge box-office success, and will likely convince countless more young women that it’s okay not to have any autonomy in a relationship, that a man is allowed to control them entirely. It will also show many young men that women are theirs to play with and dominate, thus contributing to antiquated patriarchal values and rape culture.


Boycott this fucking movie, for the love of god. These kinds of ideas are dangerous and set us back as a society 

Can’t use our bath for 24 hours. That’ll be so much fun in this heat. Cryyyy.

An actual hole has appeared in the ceiling. Sigh.


"A new study shows that men are threatened by confident women taking pictures of themselves, and call these women stupid, socially inept, and ugly. In other news, the world is round, the sky is blue, and the patriarchy is still shitty."

Threesome please.

My cousin and his wife have just had their second baby! Eeeeee!


How dress codes are sexist

aforava is a classy lady.

Ugh. I ordered a black jumpsuit from Missguided for work and it’s just arrived. It’s so so so vile, the material is the same material as a bloody football shirt and it’s so short in the body that I get a fab camel toe. Why can’t things just be made nicely?!
