Ok ladies, we're going there... we're talking about sex. I know it's a bit of a taboo subject, but really, it shouldn't be! I'm a happily married woman (for nearly 12 years now) and I think a good sex-life is an EXTREMELY important part of what makes our marriage so happy in the first place.

Newsflash: beautiful women come in all shapes and sizes. So in 2016, join me as I celebrate every single curve and every single muscle. I'm dedicating this year to celebrating who we are, where we are right in this moment.
