Truth talking

Today I’m musing over the concept of uncomfortable but important conversations. This one has been a sore point for me, from conversations about body hair, to gender equality and career choices, navigating the strong and opposing opinions of others around me is a constant source of frustration and learning.

A self-experiment in body hair

Today I’m sharing my most recent leap of courage; something I’m still testing out, and for lack of a better word is a bit of a prickly subject- growing my body hair.
