We recommend: Babes Ride Out


We’re loving Babes Ride Out, who run annual female only campouts for us ladies who bike. They’ve got a fabulous Instagram account at https://www.instagram.com/babesrideout/  and a website here where you can buy tickets and t-shirts here.

Based in California and running awesome campouts in October every year, I narrowly missed attending last year as I ended up in Cali in November, but should be able to make it this year. Can’t wait! The Instagram is fantastic and worth checking out if you’re into some epic, great photography. All photos used in this blog were found on the Babes Ride Out Instagram.



Meet ‘For Foxes’ Sake

For Foxes Sake Row Murray sex education sex ed teenage girls tween girls sexting

Greetings readers!

I’ve been revisiting some fresh ideas for Lipstick & Gearsticks and am really looking forward to firing up this blog again. In the meantime, I mentioned a few months back that I had been quiet because I was locked up in a dark room writing a book. I’m delighted to advise that ‘For Foxes’ Sake’ is out there and available on Amazon, iTunes and Paperback. Here’s the spin!

“Everyone needs a sex fairy godmother. That person you can talk to about sex, drugs, rock n roll ad how to find the perfect shade of lip gloss. With practical advice and guidance on topics as diverse as consent, body confidence, making home porn, online bullying, sexting and being a digitally savvy girl, this is the book that every girl – and their parents – should read.

“Warm, funny, honest and accurate, this book cracks open the fabulous weirdness of sex. We know what girls are facing today, so let’s rock savvy self-confidence, digital smarts and self-respect.”
