Social Media- Like, Love, Hate

Hey Beautifuls! I fancied a non Lymphie post so I got thinking about what most of my free time consists of. Gym, marking and social media updates. The latter is what I’m going to focus on during this post. Think of this as a virtual Snog, Marry, Avoid (Robert Downey Jnr, Tom Hiddleston and Tom […]

Misconceptions about Lymphoedema

Hi Beautifuls. Over the years I’ve stumbled across a few common thoughts about me and my condition. I thought I would do a little a post about some of the common misconceptions!

Not all trends are clothing choices, some are just changing your lipstick, so… I thought it would be fun to share with you the latest beauty trends spotted on the catwalks.
