Little Fashion | Autumn Accessories

Hello! I’m very excited to share this blog post this week, as it’s full of my latest fashion choices ready for autumn. I’m not going to bang on about how I don’t like autumn, because I feel like bloggers are buzzing this time of year and I’m the only...

“Mummy, look at that little girl!” | Disability and Children

Staring is something I deal with a lot. Most of the time I zone it out because I’m getting on with my day. But sometimes there are moments when you just can’t ignore it. When I’m out in public, I hear kids shouting things like “Mummy look at that...

Following the Crowd | When Fashion Doesn’t Fit

Styling Smart When You’re Small

When I was in Primary School teachers told me I didn’t have to wear school uniform due to my small size (cc my old blog where you can see how mini I was: Being Young and Disabled | 24 things I’ve Learned so far…) Being my stubborn self, I obviously...
