Hi peeps!! 
So this week is going too fast and I can't believe it's Wednesday already?!! I hope you're all having a good week and if not; then I send you lots of love and positive vibes.  As you all probably know by now that I've been away to Amsterdam; from Wednesday 30th to Monday 4th September. I had a great time and due to my health reasons; I'm still recovering from it. ☺️ Whilst there, I bought some beauty products which I am really loving.   The palettes are as follow;  Urban Decay Heat PS Bronze Shadow and Shade My Glow by Douglas 
The brushes are all from Primark. They are as follow; Insta Define Eye Brush - Define and Sculpt Eyes! Double End Smokey Brush Eye Contour Brush
The illuminator by Nyx Cosmetics is Magnetic
The lipsticks are as follow; Urban Decay Vice - Blackmail Nyx Cosmetics - Liquid Suede Lipstick Pure Society
Silicon Sponge by Primark

I haven't tried using the brushes or sponges yet but intrigued to see how they are; I'm not e…

What Do You See?

Hi peeps!!
Just wanted to share a random post with you all. I hope you don't mind but it popped into my head and I thought 'ooh I like that idea'.  I have Kyphoscolisis, Perniosis, Osteoporosis, Osteoarthritis, slight hearing loss, anxiety, panic disorder. Asthma, arthralgia. Plus other oddly things. This is all because of the Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome. It takes over a lot of my life whether it's physically or mentally.  However; it's a part of who I am but it is not the whole of me. I'm also a blogger, I create videos on my YouTube channel, I run my EDS Awarenesa Campaign through my Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/DinkyktsEDSDiaries) I upload onto my Instagram accounts; my personal account and my beauty/fashion account where I show off my various looks despite struggling with pain, fatigue and physical difficulties and encouraging body positivity.  I'm a daughter, sister, auntie, niece, cousin and a friend to many who I'm blessed to have in my life. I&…

Am I Undateable?!

Sunday, 26 August 2012
Undateable?! Looking on Facebook, at a page that I ‘Like’ has raised an issue which I hold closely to my heart. The Ehlers-Danlos Support UK had been approached by a production company that is currently in the making its second series of ‘Undateables’. Now Scope is promoting this show as well. 
I personally have mix views on the term ‘undateable’ in reference to disabled people on the dating scene. People are trying to steer people away from labelling the disabled from such terminology not reinforcing it. If someone called me as it, I would certainly be upset as I feel it is making me look like a freak. I thought charities were supposed to promote disability in a positive light and not taking us backwards in how people approach disability?!? I am all for raising awareness for Ehlers Danlos Syndrome but just not this way; this is a negative way to do so. Why can’t there be a more positive way, there is a start with Cherylee (as you are aware from a previous blog pos…

Coming to a Realisation

Hi peeps!!
So since my last post, I have been to Amsterdam and back! I've spent last Tuesday, Thursday and Friday recovering; in fact I still am. Check out my https://youtu.be/uythBAEk4Nw YouTube channel to see my vlogs from the trip (and don't forget to subscribe!!)  I'm going to be talking about something that I've been thinking about but not really said anything out to anyone. It's actually been a difficult subject for me to be honest with you. Well it might not be a big issue for you or anyone else but it is for me. I have always been a creative person no matter what field I may be creating in and about six or more years ago, I started getting back into crafting. Then ever since I've built up a fabulous collection of materials such as paper crafts, embroidery etc and I can honestly say that with all the stuff I have is enough to open a market stall with. Not only have I bought the materials myself but also been given stuff as gifts and good gesture.  Now the f…
