Please Don’t Use My Life, To Make Yours Feel Better

The picture above is me feeling on top form. I’ve got mi new dress on (included in my latest fashion favourites), the tassels make it feel even fancier. I’d curled my hair, contoured my cheeks and even put more than one shade of eyeshadow on. I’d put this picture...

Fashion Favourites | July 2019

Here we are again, this is becoming a bit of a tradition isn’t it? In fact I wrote one around this time last year! It’s a short one this time as I just thought I’d share my favourite outfits (with links) of July as I did have a cheeky...

How to make meetings inclusive for wheelchair users

Previously I have posted top tips for wheelchair users about networking. Unless you’re in a familiar setting, meetings can be difficult (at times) for wheelchair users, whether that’s getting there, getting into the building, knowing where to go – never mind the actual meeting.

Explaining Disability to Children

One of my most read blog posts is one where I talk about parents reacting towards me as a wheelchair user when they’re with their children. This is something that we don’t really talk about because you don’t really prepare for it – then it happens and we all...

A Ferry Good Journey | A Wheelchair User’s Experience

See what I did there? Ha I know cringe, sorry. So you probably know already if you follow me on social media, that I recently took a trip to Belfast from Liverpool via Ferry. You may also know that in the past I’ve had really bad travel anxiety. Taxis,...

Removing Makeup: The Energy Level Edition

Removing makeup, I don’t know about you – but I bloomin’ hate doing it. Applying it, all over it. Infact, it’s one of my favourite things to do. But taking it off, just one of those things you’ve got to do but I could do without. Anyone with me?...
