WHAT’S THE CLOSEST THING TO REAL MAGIC?
DESCRIBE YOUR GIRLBOSS MOMENT
Taking a leap of faith and starting RitualKind.
HOW DID YOU LEARN WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A WOMAN?
When I stopped taking the Pill and started really tapping into my body and listening to what it needed and wanted.
WHO TAUGHT YOU WHAT LOVE IS?
Without a doubt Neil. Kind, patient and real. He has never given up on me and in good times and bad his love has never faltered. He sees the good in everyone and everything.
WHAT IS INTIMACY?
Being vulnerable, gentle face kisses, hand holding in the car, falling asleep at night and telling Neil how much he means to me.
WHAT DID YOUR MOTHER TEACH YOU?
That the ability to stand alone as your own person is much more powerful than hiding and shrinking into a crowd.
Gratitude and kindness always, to yourself and others.
TELL US SOMETHING ABOUT YOUR BODY THAT YOU WISH YOU’D ALWAYS KNOWN?
That it is a beautiful magical vessel capable of so much more than I give it credit for. Love every part of it because you only have one body and one chance to appreciate it.
ULTIMATE MAKE-OUT PLAYLIST?
