The Do’s and Don’ts When Talking About Disability

When I talk to people, and they find out that I love to chat all things disability – one of the first things people say is “you just don’t know what to say anymore do you”. And I get it, but I think we all need to be open...

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...

Funny question isn’t it? I think most of us reading this would say “yes, I haven’t used cash in ages!” Or “contactless is just so easy now!”. Recently I worked with Which? Who asked me this very question and I realised I don’t think we’re quite ready to be...

Answering Common Assumptions

Surviving Winter as an Achey Extrovert

Those who know me in person know I am a #extrovert. I love people, chatting and generally having a good time. In the summer I’m on 99.9% energy (on my good, non-broken bone days), making plans and generally living my best life. However, at this time of year, I...
