First things first, thank you SO much for all of the love and support during my withdrawal process. If you saw my 'I want to hide away' post you'll know that I have been withdrawing from strong medication for my M.E. It has been a really tough few weeks, tougher than I ever anticipated hence my absence, but all of the lovely comments on my previous post and over on my twitter have meant so much so thank you, you guys are the best.

Now, onto the outfit!
I've been after some lace trousers for ages so I was pleased when I saw this white jumpsuit in H&M last month. (Which is now only £15 by the way so don't miss out on this bargain!) It's fab because it's great for summer but you can also whack on a shirt over it on a slightly cooler day. I'm all about getting more for your money, and let's face it, the way summer is going at the moment, I'm not going to get much wear out of this without layering it up. BRITISH SUMMER SUCKS. WHY DID I EVER LEAVE SPAIN?

You may also notice two other things. The first being that I no longer have blue hair, so to all of the hardcore fans of the blue hair I sincerely apologise but it was too high maintenance for this spoonie. The second is that I have some 'funky, cool 'n' edgy art' over my skin... I'm kind of obsessed with flash tattoos at the moment, decorating your face is so fun and I highly recommend it. Check out IAMU Collective for some Inspiration. My Dad freaked out when he thought they were real, I went along with it for a bit, but then I had to stop because he was about to have a mental breakdown.

I'm still feeling a little temperamental but I hope it won't be too long until my next post. In the meantime you can stay up to date by following me on Instagram, here, or on twitter, here.

I WANT TO HIDE AWAY

Thursday, 9 July 2015



I've decided to stop taking drugs. Hard, strong pain killer prescription drugs that is (not THAT kind, don't worry) that I have been taking everyday for the past few years to ease my chronic pain and I want to hide away. Or sleep and not wake up until the withdrawal process is over.

I have always shared my journey with M.E on my blog, and I always will do, and I will always do it honestly, and right now the honest truth is coming off of them is kinda hell. They told me it would be, but jeeeez! Body - cut me some slack please?! I hope though that it is going to be for the greater good and a positive decision in the long term. 

I'm still on some medication and pain relief, but I want to see how I handle being on some lighter stuff as the side effects of the heavier drugs are often more of a pain than the actual pain itself! I'm bored of hallucinating tbh. I just need to ride the wave and see it through but I wanted to let you guys know as I may be a bit quiet for a few days, and some of you may even have some advice for me. I should also state that I have discussed with my doctor and we have a plan in place, and you should never stop taking medication without discussing it with them first. I've also been gradually reducing my dosage over the past month or so and I would not advise going cold turkey with something like this.

On a brighter note, I have some exciting news to share with you soon, possibly in my next blog post so stay tuned! Ohhh the suspense!

Isn't it just fab when you pick up an amazing find in a vintage shop? Just that happened when this Tommy Hilfiger duster was found in a vintage shop by my friend in L.A and it's so perfect for layering in the summer evenings as the temperature starts to drop, I love it!

I also think we should take a moment to appreciate how amazing Regal Rose are. I'm wearing their hand chain and necklace and I'm so impressed with the quality! If you want good quality jewellery that is cool and still a statement, and let's face it, your standard jeweller on the High Street may do quality but they probably don't really do cool or statement (unless you count those massive gold chains with bulldogs and boxing gloves on the end which are definitely a statement but not in a good way) then definitely check them out - www.regalrose.co.uk*

I also just wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone who voted for me for Positive Role Model in the National Diversity Awards, see my post here to read more - I was so overwhelmed by all of the lovely things everyone said and all of the amazing support. You guys are seriously amazing! I'll find out in July if I made the shortlist so I'll be sure to keep you all updated. Thanks for always being such sassy babes x

Things to Include in Your Diet This Summer

Monday, 29 June 2015


Summer diets are usually lighter and healthier than winter diets. This isn’t just because everybody wants to stay looking great, but because the hot weather can put us off eating anything too large or stodgy. If you want to make sure your diet is up to scratch this summer, make sure you include the following things:

Nut Butter
Nut butter of any kind is a really good way to get your healthy fats in. Healthy fats are essential for a healthy mind and body. Some people think they need to cut fat out completely to get a ‘summer body’ but this isn’t true! You need to watch out for saturated fat, but eat lots of good fats during summer! Have your nut butter on a slice of wholegrain toast or a rice cake.

Avocado
Avocado is another healthy fat that should be included in the diet, just bear in mind that it’s very calorific. Half a small avocado should be enough for one person per serving. It goes really well on wholegrain toast as a sort of spread, or sliced up in salads.

Berries
Berries are a great source of health in the summer because they contain less sugar than other fruits. They can be added to water to infuse the goodness, added to porridge, or eaten alone. Bear in mind that eating too many berries will up your sugar intake substantially.

Lemon Water
Adding lemon to your water is a really good way to cleanse the system. Drinking water alone is brilliant, but if you want an extra cleansing boost then squeezing in some lemon is a great idea.

Tea
I love drinking tea, but it must have no milk or sugar added if I want to really enjoy the benefits. Green tea is an amazing drink to include in your summer diet, and you can also try slimming tea if you’d like to drop a few pounds. Just make sure you’re eating a healthy diet to go with it!

Leafy Greens
Leafy greens are the best kinds of vegetables. You can include them in smoothies, omelettes, and make salads out of them to enjoy the benefits. Kale and spinach are two of my favourites, and there are lots of different ways you can prepare them!

Fish
Fish is a nice, light way to get your protein intake up. Not only that, it can also be a way to get your healthy fats when you pick a fish like salmon. You don’t need to add much to fish for it to taste delicious!

Sweet Potato
I love sweet potato if I’m hungry for carbs. My favourite way to prepare it is to chop it into cubes, toss in olive oil and sea salt, then roast in the oven. There are so many things you can make with it though, from sweet potato discs to wedges. This is a really healthy vegetable everybody should be eating!

Olive Oil 
Olive oil is good for us, you just need to watch your intake when cooking. Make sure you measure out just the right amount and don’t get too splash happy with the bottle.


Include these things in your diet this summer and you’ll be a picture of health!

NATIONAL DIVERSITY AWARDS | Vote Hayley-Eszti for Positive Role Model

Thursday, 18 June 2015



Today I have some really exciting news to share, and I also kind of want a favour...

Last week I woke up to find out I had been nominated for the National Diversity Awards for 'Positive Role Model' under the disability category. It is incredibly humbling and a lovely feeling to have been nominated, and to know that people are seeing the work I do and what I try to represent and supporting it is actually quite surreal. To me I'm just little ol' me, a girl who is just doing what anyone would do in my situation.

For those of you who might not know what it is I do/have done/experienced, I'll try and explain all of that briefly in a few secs. What I'm really here to ask, is for your votes. You guys have supported me since the start after all, and many of you have been with me on my journey throughout everything. The way the voting system works is each nominee gets votes, and the people with the most votes get to go to the event in Liverpool in September where the UK's most inspirational people are all celebrated. I don't expect to win, but I really would love to make the event and to meet some of these amazing people. I hope being at the event will help promote more awareness and be a great step forward for my cause. (Not to mention the fact I have always wanted to go to Liverpool, I love me a Scouse accent!)

Why I was nominated.
I was nominated for the work I do to promote a positive image surrounding disability. When I was 19 I woke up one day unable to move, see or talk, having been perfectly fine the day before. I was diagnosed with a severe case of M.E about a year later, and within that year I became reliant on a wheelchair and care. I had lost my memory, was suffering serious seizures and I was incredibly unwell, so much so that I almost died on numerous occasions. It was within this time since becoming disabled and a full time ill person that I wanted to try and help people in the same situation, or similar ones to myself. I began campaigning for awareness for M.E and disability in general, equality, and education. Since then I've been featured in national newspapers, news outlets and magazines across the world, had TV interviews and made speeches at various events sharing my story. I have also of course, created this blog, where I try to show people that we are much more than any illness, any 'condition' and I try and promote positivity and encourage and support others, and to give people who may have lost it, a little hope that things do get better. 

I have a profile on the Awards page here where I talk about my story a little more, and my press and media coverage is all listed here so I don't need to go too in depth here, but you kind of get the gist.

All I want, more than anything is for people both disabled and non-disabled alike to see that disability doesn't change anything. We are individuals, unique and special. We still have hopes and dreams and with the right attitude we can still fulfil them just like anyone else can. Yes we might face obstacles but we can, and I hope I am an example for that. I have never let the fact I have an illness change anything about me, and nor will I ever. I chose to embrace it and to fight for change and a better society for everyone.

So if you can take a few minutes out of your day to vote, I'd really appreciate it. To everyone who has already voted - THANK YOU! You sassy bunch! I am so moved by all of your kind words, and as ever, so incredibly grateful for your amazing support.
P.S. Feel free to share my profile too *wink face emoji*

Voting has now closed. Thanks to everyone who voted for me!

I really can't emphasise how much I love summer. I'm currently scoffing down some vanilla ice cream listening to some chilled sounds and the sun is beaming through the window. Right now I am asking myself could today get any better? The answer here is no. LIFE IS GOOD. 

I'm really obsessed with white at the moment, so many of my new purchases are white, I'm not really sure why but I just like white. This lace kimono is pretty much what dreams are made of in my opinion. I can't get enough of it! When I walk down the stairs it trails behind me and I'm not going to deny that I pretend I'm in a wedding dress. (Don't judge me, this is the closest I'm probably going to get to wearing a wedding dress this side of the decade)

I wore this outfit for an afternoon down the beach and it was such a gorgeous day! I was thrilled when I realised how perfectly matched my tassel top and bag are too. ACCIDENTAL MATCHING = GOOD TIMES. There were some people swimming in the sea but I didn't feel quite that brave. Maybe next time...

I'm now really looking forward to summer and hopefully there will be plenty more days at the beach in store. As soon as it is hot enough I am heading down the the nudist beach to get naked, because that's just how I roll. What are your plans for this summer? Let me know in the comments!
