Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/ME and Getting Through Festivities


Are you excited for the next few weeks or dreading it? If you suffer with a chronic condition I can guarantee you'll be worrying about so much more than buying the right present for your uncle Dave or getting the turkey in the oven on time.

MAC Nutcracker Sweet Peach Face Compact Review


I haven't bought a limited edition item from Mac in so long but when I saw the Nutcracker collection, I knew I needed this face duo in my life and all over my cheeks. Not only is the packaging absolutely stunning but the blusher and highlight are top quality.

Getting to Know Me: The Blogger Tag


I haven't taken part in a tag post for so long, so when the lovely Francesca over at My Life in Rose Tinted Glasses nominated me, I thought it was about time I got back on that bandwagon and divulged even more about me. I mean, it's not like I don't share everything as it is anyway, so why not?

My New Wheels: Invacare TDX SP2 Narrow Base


At the end of September I began fundraising for a new powerchair as mine was causing more harm than good, and I've finally taken (or rather Ian did) some pics to show you all exactly what my new machine can do. So, yeah, this is going to be a very photo-heavy post.

A Masterclass with Clinique




Last week I attended my first blogger event at the Clinique counter in Debenhams, intu Milton Keynes. I'm a huge Clinique fan; they were the first luxury skincare brand I used when I was having problematic teenage skin, and more recently I've really fallen in love with their makeup, so I was extremely excited to learn more about the brand.

November #Paperhaul Subscription Box


November's box only arrived late last week so I quickly photographed it at the weekend to get it up as soon as I could. This box featured artwork from Michelle Gaskell at Stupidcats, and it's birthday themed.

Do You Know What 'Chronic' Means?


I wrote a few posts last year about empathy, and in one I briefly touched on what 'chronic' means but I thought I'd go a bit more in-depth, well, because I want to. If you'd like to read my posts on empathy, part one is here, and part two here.

I've been part of Nouveau Lashes #lashgang from the beginning and every product or treatment that I've had/used, I've absolutely loved. I thought I'd dedicate this post to this awesome brand and give you an insight on the types of things they offer.

I'm Not Scrooge: Why I Find Christmas Difficult


Apparently if you don't like Christmas or can't get into 'the Christmas spirit' you're miserable and a Scrooge. Okay, mate, sure. Have you ever wondered why someone doesn't like Christmas? I'm not cheerless, a killjoy or the Grinch, I just find Christmas time really hard.

7 Parts Of My Chronic Illness That Not Everyone Sees


I'm always very open and honest about my chronic illnesses (or at least I try to be) but there's still sides of my condition that not everyone is aware of. Why? Because my health makes me quite vulnerable and only people that live with me see me at my worst. At the moment I live with my boyfriend but when I was living at home, my mum, Pops and brother knew exactly what I deal with.
