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 […]

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

I want to start by saying that I have borrowed this format from Joy at Pinkoddy so I can take part in her Health Hop blog hop.  While I feel sure I shall be participating in weeks to come, given that health, or lack thereof is ever present in my life, I really didn’t want to pass up the opportunity for getting some positivity flowing through my life, my soul, and my blog.   The concept itself is actually from Kuhn (1960) – which is my fiancés (and soon to be my) surname.  This was another thing that made me […]

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 […]
