To me, “selfies” are photos you take when somehow tethered to the camera either by your arm or a selfie stick. They’re usually taken to show off your face or a fun memory, self portraits on the other hand tend to be more focused on the artistic side of things. Obviously they were both absolute … More Selfies with a “self portrait” edge
Generally, people blog because they want others to read what they have to say. If you just wanted to “get it all out” you would probably use a private diary, that way -unless you happen to keep it under a bridge- you shouldn’t have to worry about trolls. To start with I wanted to write … More The future of Sakara Dee
Well so does Lee-Ann. She has been holding raffles and auctions for a magical variety of lush & other cruelty free products. Most she buys the prizes with her own money, others are donated by others who want to help. ALL of the proceeds go to Animal Free Research UK and all the raffles cost … More Love lush? Love animals?
I used to think “Time flies when you’re having fun” summed up why the good times in my life seemed so short and the misery so long. There’s more to it than that though isn’t there?

A quick rundown of some things I’ve discovered over the past few months of manic (well… As manic as it gets when you’re half asleep all the time) stuff-sorting. I say “Your Room” as that’s the example I’ve been getting a LOT of experience with but some of these tips would work anywhere, others are … More 5 Tips for Sorting Your Room as a Spoonie
This isn’t a normal campaign. I’m not asking you to donate money, time or to give up anything that is precious to you. I am only hoping that in time you might choose to. Invisible illness sufferers often seem ‘healthy’ or ‘fine’ to look at. Our awareness weeks and days come and go and a frustratingly huge … More Visible Illness
