Human Is Beautiful…Perfect Is Boring

human is beautiful...perfect is boring

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

Purple Wings Charity Pin Up Photo Shoot

purple wings charity - pin up photoshoot

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.

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
