The Corset

Many years ago, back in the days where I had family members calling me Fatso! I had read an article in a magazine, it spoke about a woman with a tiny waist – She credited her svelte figure to her consistent use of corsets. ‘Corsets!’ I shouted out within the company of a bowl ofContinue reading “The Corset”

Where to Start?

The Rotten Side of Life

The Rotten Side of Life I was once a meat-eater, so I do understand, the thought process behind eating meat. It’s how many of us were raised.
