Changing faces changing places: my journey from troubled teen to confident woman – disability matters

As those of you who follow via. social media will know, I have been taking part in a fantastic series of lectures at the London College of Fashion (here).  Being very passionate about inclusive fashion, I was fortunate enough to be invited along.  In the last few weeks I have learned so much, and this will be just the first of many articles inspired by the works of the Better Lives Project.  Before I embark of trying to change the world from my little corner of the blogosphere, I wanted to share with you why I am so passionate about […]

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 […]

Making this up as I go along…

…ah, I crack myself up 😉  A little colour in your cheeks I am of course referring to one of my passions – makeup!  I love it, I covet it, I buy it, I own to much of it, and don’t wear it nearly enough.  In another of my life’s weird dichotomies, I only ever seem to have the time/energy to try new makeup looks in the middle of the night when insomnia strikes and I have watched loads of fabulous tutorials on You Tube. I saw this pic and could instantly relate!  One of the problems with chronic illness […]

Wow – I finally did it!  I’ve been foostering around with the idea of blogging for an age – and this eve thought, heck, why not.  Here are some of the thought processes leading to this blog and this post…which if you pop in, I would imagine you will see alot of. It’s good to talk I like to talk.  I like to write.  As I spend alot of time at home (reasons to follow), I write as I would talk if all the lovely Youtubers, Facebookers, Pinteresters and Bloggers were in my front room (or bedroom) and I were […]
