I just adore chunky knits and corduroy and the best time of year to buy all those types of clothes is autumn! The shops are literally teaming with them, I mean I get excited about getting a new coat or boots all of which 00Steve thinks I don’t need more of which is just ridiculous! Of course I do! Read more
That was a question I recently was asked and if I am honest completely baffled by; that however is my personal opinion on it and others may differ. I have asked around to see what others felt about this question, how their ostomy has affected them and the way they view their “femininity”. Read more
Like most young girls I dreamed of being a model when I grew up, but becoming chronically ill and being definitely awkward looking (not to mention steroid moon face) I soon realised that I wasn’t what society deemed as beautiful. Not that I was ugly really not in reality. Since meeting Jasmine back in 2016 I have wanted to model for her company but I was never going to be at the forefront of her mind when her brand exudes glamour and silver screen elegance – as I am a very proud punk rock princess! I however got to experience modelling for her recently and it didn’t matter about my tattoos as I got to be all decked out for Halloween! Read more
We are now into week three of our June micro action challenge; so in our camp since the start we have had babies born (my baby Button is now a baby Jacob) sickness with Louise, a hospital admission from Rachel and Natalie is holding the fort with The IBD and Ostomy Support Show Facebook page! But we are all trying to make sure we get our actions done when we can; but such as life things can be a bit of a challenge. Read more

Well then this is a rather exciting topic for me to be talking about! Myself and three for now other women (one sneaky one is hiding in the wings but for now will remain a surprise) will be taking to your screens once a week to talk about life with IBD and ostomies! In our very own SHOW! So even if you don’t have IBD but you have a stoma you are still included! Read more
I had the pleasure to attend another amazing event held by Purple Wings Charity a photo shoot on the 11th March, a bunch of beautiful, brave babes met up in a hotel conference room to smash some taboo’s and boost their own confidence whilst raising some money for their amazing cause. Which if you didn’t know by now is to help give people who have a stoma as a result of IBD a sense of self and to feel the confidence that they should have. These are through “time for me” grants which can be anything from a day out with their family or as simple as a haircut.
Hi everyone! Yesterday was the first meeting of the Hambleton and Richmondshire Ostomy Support Group! It has been in the works for a few months and has been a niggling thought in two fellow ostomate’s minds as well! I was so glad that I had other people to help expand this little idea of ours into a reality and you can too! (Do I care I’ve used a LOT of exclamation marks? nah I’m excited *insert cheesy grin*) Read more
