Augusts monthly muse is non-other than Laura Ellen, host of The Sexual Wellness Podcast, founder of the Sexual Wellness Store and sex, love and life coach. You may remember that Laura interviewed @yourmonthly in one of her recent podcast episodes and we had so much fun together we wanted to create some more magic for you gorgeous! In our interview we chat about the importance of playfulness when it comes to sexuality, why the porn industry is creating the need for brave conversations and how you can be intimate across your monthly cycle.
This month’s muse is the delightful Ellie of Loving Ellie’s Belly, and she’s like a breath of fresh air. She’s unapologetically honest, hilarious and kind of silly (in all the best ways) and while her social media presence may appear light hearted there is a deeper motivation behind Ellie’s willingness to let us in on her life. Ellie speaks about her journey to self-worth, surviving an abusive relationship and struggle with her relationship with food. She challenges women to see themselves as more than their bodies and even questions brands for not supporting size diversity among women. Your Monthly spoke with Ellie about her relationship with her body, her views on societies drive for thinness and importance of choosing your “tribe” if you want to be uplifted by those around you.
This month’s muse is the talented Lydia O’Donnell, a professional runner and Nike run coach. Lydia is inspiring not only because of her sporting achievements (she recently placed 20th at the New York Marathon!) but also because of the way she advocates running. Her philosophy? Running is for everyone, all bodies and all abilities. In this interview we spoke about her own experience of “elitism” in the sport, why women (especially runners) need to eat carbohydrates and how she deals with her monthly as an elite athlete.
