Blogosphere Publication

Hi guys!!
So... it’s Tuesday and I know I normally like to upload a new blog post on a Monday but tiredness had kicked in after I had my appointment yesterday. It was only an eye check up but those who know me, know that I have sleep issues so getting up early and going out; tired me out, a lot. I struggle to focus and have a clear head to write something that needs to make sense. This, my lovely people; is not what you the reader would like to read.  Anyway... onto this post’s topic; which is about the Blogosphere Magazine.  This magazine is for Bloggers by Bloggers. I wish I had seen it before now as I think I would have been buying it since it began, whenever that was. It’s published four times a year. It’s been something I’ve yearned for since I first started blogging and being a YouTuber so you can imagine how happy I am to discover this magazine. I started blogging before I created my YouTube channel and back then, it was all very new. There wasn't as many creators out there a…

My Dislike For Animal Cruelty

Hi guys!!
For as long as I can remember I have been against animal testing, for example when my sister received booklets etc from BUAV (which is now https://www.crueltyfreeinternational.org/) and I would buy stationery things just to show my support. As a child, it is harder to acknowledge the difference in buying animal cruelty free products and those that have been tested on animals. We didn't have the internet like we do now and to be honest, most company/brands weren't as forthcoming with information such as this. I'm trying to be more aware in when I purchase beauty products and clothing. My collection of animal cruelty free makeup is slowly building up which I am proud of. I hope to one day replace every none cruelty free makeup that I have. It makes me feel guilty knowing that there are thousands, if not millions of innocent animal suffering because of my vanity. I also hope that every single company/brand change to cruelty free as well. A lot of the suffering I fe…

Chatting About My Current Life

Hi guys!
I think this post might be a little bit of a ramble which I hope you don't mind but I was just thinking about my life and what things I have to look forward to. This year has gone rather fast, I cannot believe it's the 20th of November already!! The last few months have been a little quiet for me but it isn't all bad. My pain levels have increased and I feel like my health issues have deteriorated, and this has made some impact on my social life. I'm the kind of person who likes to keep going despite how I'm feeling but lately; it has been more difficult. Sometimes it has gotten me down and I felt like I was missing out but when it's been possible, I just try to focus on my blog and my YouTube channel. Even then it can be a challenge finding inspiration and motivation, then this makes me feel like I'm a rubbish blogger. Currently I have been struggling with the top of my back; right across from one shoulder blade to another. I have kyphoscoliosis …

Christmas Stocking Ideas

Hi everyone!!
So it's a new week already and I hope you are all having a wonderful start to the week? If not, I hope it improves for you. Personally for me, I love Mondays and Tuesdays because it's the two days where I can thoroughly rest and recuperate ready for the Wednesday and the following weekend. This is the thing with having a chronic disability, I have to pace myself and balance my time out properly. As the Christmas festivities is looming; I'm starting to think about what presents I am wanting to buy my loved ones. This year I aim to be more organised although I'm sure many people think this every single year. Christmas present buying is something that I enjoy but I also love the feeling when you have bought everything you have set out and more. Who else ends up buying extra presents because they can't resist that cute little giftset that is on offer?!! For a few years I even managed to create my own wrapping paper and I felt so proud. It took some intense p…

Loving Being A Beauty Blogger

Hi everyone! 
I hope you’re all okay... I’m keeping okay as I can be ☺️ EDS is kicking me a little bit lately but I’m still smiling away and trying to focus my energy (what energy I do have) on both here and my YouTube channel. I have decided to take a week or more off YouTube while I have a rest and pluck for some new inspiration.  Anyway; as many of you know, I have two separate Instagram accounts. My main one which is more personal in that I share family photos and just general every day life type of posts (@dinkykt). My newer account is my more ‘professional’ one; where i posts beauty, lifestyle, body empowerment and on rare occasions: fashion posts for example; my outfits.  I feel like I’ve come a long way with my makeup skills and the majority of it is self taught. I’m proud of this and I enjoy wearing makeup. It does cause pain applying it and it takes a lot of energy, but the end result is always worth it. I want to show that just because I endure chronic pain, 24/7, that it does…

Stages of a Chronic Illness

Hi guys!!
YAY I finally been able to upload a YouTube video onto this blog after I have tried for such a long time, so I'm very happy with this!! I hope you like this video, it's a little different to anything I have created before. I want to show how body language can speak without words and show how when you're chronically ill and the pain affects people. 


I would love to hear your feedback on this video. Would you like to see more like this? Could you relate to what you have seen in the video? Anyway that's enough from me in this post and thank you so much if you get to watch the video, and enjoy reading my blog. I hope to see you in my next post!! See you soon xxx

Self Care Guide

Hi guys!! 
It’s Wednesday and I think you’re all due a new blog post from me 😊 since last Wednesday evening, I have felt pretty rubbish both physically and emotionally. It’s only as yesterday evolved that I began to feel a bit more myself. I’m sure many other people with E.D.S or similar chronic disabilities will have questioned ‘why me, I hate this’ personally I haven’t but it doesn’t mean I have spent many a time, sitting on my bed in tears at feeling fed up/frustrated or in a lot of pain because I have. Living with severe anxiety and panic disorder really makes it more challenging as well. I think I was born the way I am because I know I can be strong when I need to be and I have an outlook that people seem to like about me.  So, what’s the reason why I’m telling you all the above is because I found the following picture as it seems like something that could be beneficial to both me and you. So let’s look at it and I’ll discuss it further with you below.  Starting with social self ca…
