I love to remind myself that I was the fastest sperm. It’s the most life-affirming, brilliant, mind blowing thought ever. You might’ve seen I posted about this on Instagram this week – it’s something that’s been on my mind quite a bit lately and it fills me with so much appreciation. It’s an unbelievable realisation – and achievement! Well done you pro swimmer you! Just let it really sink in… In a single burst of the old love stick, a healthy male will release between…

If I had to write a list of sure-fire things that cheer me up/boost my mood, 95% of it would consist of eating all the sushi/nachos/ice cream and drinking all the Prosecco/cocktails/peanut butter milkshake with my favourite people.

Is it me or does life speed up as the years go by? The sheer quickness of it all has given me some incredible new month motivation. I’m feeling inspired not to let life just rush past me but to value each day as best I can. This…

If you follow me on Instagram, you might’ve seen I was feeling unusually positive on Monday morning. Generally I hate Monday mornings so this was very much a rarity for me.

I think it’s fair to say that Monday’s on the whole are pretty shitty for everyone involved but this Monday felt considerably worse due to the fact…
