So thanks to Purple Wings Charity really kindly giving me a grant of a hotel voucher for 00Steve and I to reconnect as having Ra-Ra then falling pregnant sadly losing Bean and falling pregnant with Button we never really had a chance to just adjust as a normal couple would after having major life changing surgery. Don’t get me wrong we never let my ileostomy get in the way of our relationship but we weren’t able to just be ourselves as we had little people to take care of! Thanks to Purple Wings Charity we were able to visit Paris! 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.
So now is the time everyone is making New Years resolutions. I’m not writing any this year, nor am I ignoring them. But for me they are a way to try and make myself whole again by hoping to achieve goals. Read more
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.
So I found out last night about the Purple Wings Charity through a post on the Osto My Fashion Facebook group, could be some interesting companies there.
