Confidence the secret with Katie Piper

Though I feel I should start with my usual plea for leniency about not posting sooner, I won’t.  A twitter chat with a new friend has prompted me to get my butt off social media (where I can usually be found) and get over here and post.  I have so much to tell you again!  I haven’t even posted about my wedding, which was in August of last year!  Nevertheless, as my last post suggests, I am involved in some really amazing stuff at the moment so I will start there, and then start to wedge in a few things […]

Live Happy August Linkup #LiveHappyCampaign

Being happy is something we all strive for, but what does it really mean, and how to we get there?  Living happy is about not only marking the positives in day to day life, but trying to actively create happiness through positive experiences and relationships.Live Happy is a link up created by myself and Yaya as a way to deliberately spread positivity, a way to show how we cultivate happiness in our lives, and also as a way to share those happy moments that well, just happen.

20 Reasons Why I Like Me: The Power of Positivity and Self Appreciation

OOTD my first ever ASOS.com purchases (I know!!)

As promised, a blog post on my new ASOS outfit. As someone with limited mobility, I know it is shocking that I haven’t been doing the whole online shopping thing up to now.  Well, I have – to an extent.  I do my grocery shopping online, and my monthly ebay spend is bordering on criminal.  I have been shopping for myself and J’s wedding next year (more on that story later), and the almost daily deliveries of beautiful things when I first started sourcing things was nothing short of thrilling!  Having done most of the ‘buy ahead’ shopping for the […]
