My Life in Flying

Colours


Hi my name is Nicola, I recently got married in May 2011 and have done lots of travelling around the world and want to share all my stories and photos of my adventures.

I haven't always had an easy life as I've suffered with Bipolar Disorder since I was 15 and had an extremly distressful relationship with my first boyfriend and I have an extremely strange family that could take the Adams family a run for their money ;)

I'd like to share my experiences from my most distressing and difficult times in my life through to the most memorable, completly miraculous life change where I can now say I am completly happy in my life and although my life isn't perfect (i.e I'm not a millionnaire lol) and I still have ups and downs with my bipolar, I have come to accept me for who I am, I have learnt to love myself and I wouldn't change me for the world. Plus many pictures of my doggies Bailey and Alfie.

Ask me anything

Kickstarter project is live!  I’m so nervous about this!  Please have a look, and if you want the project to succeed, consider reblogging?  The only way I can get this made is through crowdfunding, and that means getting the word out!

More chickens are killed in the U.S. every year than there are people in the world (7.6 billion chickens vs. 6 billion people).

you see this?
it’s called a razor
if you’re a girl, USE IT
your hairy legs and armpits aren’t cute okay
you’re not helping out for woman’s rights or anything
YOU’RE JUST MAKING YOURSELF LOOK NASTY

Or!
Women have been socialized to believe that they must remove hair for a number of reasons, primarily the following:
hair is historically and Biblically associated with power; we as a patriarchal culture are obsessed with keeping hair on men (facial hair, Hair Club for Men, hair plugs, whatever) and keeping it off women. You say hair on women is nasty; why is it only hair on women? Women and men have the same pubic hair. We all grow it out of our follicles for the same reason. Why is it only gross on women?
women’s bodies have been considered the property of men since the dawn of time, and therefore we have been held to a standard of beauty and attractiveness that is not determined by us but is instead determined by something called the male gaze, which is erases all sexualities and genders other than cisgender heterosexual men and assumes that women are performing for it.
childlike women are considered less “threatening” and more “feminine” because they are naive, quiet, and rely on ~*adult men*~ to take care of them.
AND ALSO:
there is a fallacy about pubic hair that it is dirty. It is not dirty. In fact, it’s there to keep your genitals cleaner. Pubic hair and armpit hair are also there to spread your pheromones around and make it easier for you to attract a mate. 
all mammals have hair. We’re mammals.
AND FINALLY:
No one else’s body is your business. Ever. You want to shave? Go ahead! That’s totally your prerogative and if you’re more comfortable shaving, feel free. But given that pubic hair isn’t innately dirty, there’s no reason for anyone to remove it if they don’t want to.
You’re not sending out some edgy, hardcore message here. You’re just reinforcing what our culture wants you to reinforce. Before you pick up that razor again, think about why you want to shave. Is it just because our culture told you to? Why’d they tell you to? What’s the point?
Do what makes you comfortable and what makes you happy, and let others do the same.
