10 Reasons I'm Awesome BECAUSE OF My Disability NOT Despite It

Sorry not sorry, disability, awesome, disabled

Do you know what I'm sick of seeing? 'Oh <insert persons name here> is so lovely despite their disability'. As someone that identifies as disabled, that one word, 'despite' infuriates me so much. Why can't they just be lovely? What does their disability have to do with anything? Using that shitty little D-word is so problematic and I will always challenge it. It implies that having a disability is something we all must overcome, something that we shouldn't let affect us, but do you know what? Fuck that.

Bravura Skincare Review

I've had this lot of Bravura products for a while now and been using them religiously for about 4-6 weeks. And *spoiler alert* my skin has never looked or felt better. I'm so incredibly impressed and am shocked at how affordable the range is.

My Personal Independence Payment Assessment and Decision

Back in February the brown envelope of doom landed on my doorstep. I wasn't expecting it so wasn't struck with anxiety when I opened it but as soon as I read the first few lines the panic set in. It's no word of a lie how much fear the assessment process is for disabled people and even something as simple as a piece of paper emerging from the brown envelope can insight fear.

August #Paperhaul Stationery Subscription Collection

The August collection arrived last week and I wasn't allowed to open it until my nephew arrived that weekend at my house as he wanted to 'help' me because he's very much a lover of receiving mail, like his auntie.

International Literacy Day 2017

Once upon a time

Today is International Literacy Day and I teamed up with Viking to express my love of literature. Because, if you hadn't realised already (where have you been?) I'm very much into my novels, especially those from the Victorian era.

August Favourites

I'm a tad late with my August favourites but I didn't forget, do not worry, they are here! I'm going to jump straight in with the things I was loving last month as my hands can't handle this typing lark.
