You’re a Disabled Graduate… Now What?

First of all congratulations, it’s a hard slog and you did it! (if you didn’t that’s absolutely ok too, but I’ll save that topic for another blog post). This time of year can be weird, you can feel lost and not know what to do next. Any graduate (or...

CBD Oil – is it worth the hype?

*Disclaimer – this is no way sponsored, this was my own personal test* I first heard about CBD and to be honest, I thought it was illegal as I’d heard it had cannabis in it. Then more people started talking about it, and I saw it in Holland and...

The Art of Not Being Subtle (at all)

Last week I was in a shopping centre with no makeup on – feeling a bit conscious, and if I’m honest – a bit hungover. Birthday week and all that. I was about to head to another birthday party and was definitely not looking my best. I wanted to...

“Is there not a job for you closer to home?”

Commuting to work. Something that a lot of people grumble about. Trains delayed weather cold and not enough time in the morning. For me, I book my taxi either the night before or in the morning. I’m grateful that it gets me there from door to door. It takes...

Are we ready to live in a “cashless” society?

To lean or not to lean? | Disability and Socialising

I’m going to put this post out there, just so you can ponder this question yourself. There is no right answer but I know I have mine. Picture the scene – you see me at a networking event, I raise my chair but I’m still lower than everyone there....

Video | Top Tips on Public Speaking

This week I’ve got a video to share all about public speaking. I’m not going to lie, this is something I’ve always hated (you’ll see why in the video) but I’ve had to develop these skills for previous jobs and opportunities – so I thought I’d talk about the...

On this Day…

It’s been the hottest day of the year so far and oh my God don’t I know it. I’m too warm and I can’t sleep so I thought I would check out the ‘On this Day’ section on my Facebook when I came across this… I immediately got a...
