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
Let’s talk about sex! Now this can be a subject some people shy away from yet think about a lot! I personally don’t see why having an ostomy should prevent you from having a fulfilling sex life, like any other normal human being. Read more
I have a heck of a lot of respect and love for the Purple Wings Charity. I genuinely don’t believe I would be in the position I am now if it wasn’t for a message about the ball I saw in a group. The conference is where I was able to make contacts who became friends such as Jasmine and Nozar, let alone Lauren and meeting a ton of friendly and amazing ostomates which you can read about the conference and the ball in those links.

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.
To kick my first post of the year off I thought I would raise awareness for a small business that I not only adore but is ostomy related! So let me introduce Jasmine Stacey the brains and beauty behind Jasmine Stacey Collection. I have previously reviewed the Black Widow lingerie set that I got in limited edition red which you can read here.
I have something a little special to show you all. I met Jasmine at the Purple Wings Charity event and we talked about all sorts, she instantly can make you feel at ease as she is so genuine. She is also very passionate about her products and making the women who wear them stoma or no stoma feel sexy.
So here is the post about the black tie event of my year! The Purple Wings Charity Ball! My phone died so I didn’t get as many photos as I wanted too! But Lauren really made it a night to remember.
I’m going to split this into two parts otherwise you will be reading forever!!
As you all know by now I went to the Purple Wings Charity event. I was lucky enough to snap up a free ticket so I could go. I was so excited but incredibly nervous about going; to a city I’ve never been too, by myself to meet people I’ve never met before! I had messaged Lauren a few times and felt quite an instant connection to her, she has such a big heart and is beautiful inside and out. She managed to make it so 00Steve could come with me as well after an unfortunate turn of events occurred. I don’t think she will ever truly understand what that meant to us both.
