What Would You Do If You Were No Longer in Pain?

I often wonder what it would be like to not be in pain. Every day is exhausting. Every day different. Every day a question mark. I don't know if I'll wake up and be in agony and have to cancel plans. I don't know what kind of mood I'll be in. I can't guarantee that I've had a decent nights sleep and have the energy to get dressed. It's not reliable, I'm not reliable, and it's because my health controls my life.

World IBD Day

Today, 19th May is World IBD Day.

Five million people worldwide suffer with Crohn's disease and Ulcerative Colitis (UC), conditions also known as Inflammatory Bowel Diseases or IBD. I'm not affected by IBD but my Mum is.

Send Me Nudes: Liquid Lipstick

If you're new to my blog, there's one thing that you absolutely need to know about me; I'm completely and utterly obsessed with liquid lipstick. I can't help it. I'm not even sorry. Liquid lipstick is the best kind of lipstick in my opinion. I love it, I'll continue to purchase it, and probably I'll enable you to add some to your collection as well.

Mental Health: Depression and Anxiety

I've never spoken about this on here; I've literally posted so much about every other aspect of my health but hardly anything regarding my mental health. I've touched on it but never gone into detail because it's something I've been struggling with and find difficult to talk about. But here we go.

Please respect my candour, I'm really nervous about posting this.

Lee Stafford CoCo LoCo Review

Recently my love of all things coconut-scented has become all-consuming; I love it. I don't have these weird, 'oh I imagine myself on the beach, drinking cocktails on a sun lounger' thoughts, as I hate the beach, I don't drink and sunbathing and my pale skin don't mix well. But give me something that smells of coconut and my frown will turn upside down, for sure.

Colchester Zoo

Last week I had to go to Colchester for a few days filming with Enhance the UK. It turned out I got my films finished a day early and was super excited as we could go to the zoo on our free day.
