Last week my first solo video went up on my new channel 'A Spoonful Of She' There are references to Jackass, dogs in sunglasses, and talk about how gravy doesn't make a good shampoo... and if that doesn't lure you into watching it, I don't know what will!

A Spoonful Of She is a channel set up by myself, and four other ladies who just like me all have chronic health conditions. We wanted to create the channel together, because blogging, as well as maintaining a YouTube channel is hard enough for healthy people, let alone those who have illnesses. This way we can 'share the load' whilst supporting each other, and hopefully offering something new too. We are all really excited to get started and we would love your support so please go and subscribe!

MY YOUTUBE DEBUT // Five things I have learnt from having M.E


Army Of No Country are this really cool, independent brand, and I just love my new bull skull tee from their store! What I really like about independent brands and Army Of No Country is you can find pieces that not everyone is going to own. When I came across their site I straight away fell in love and will probably end up buying a couple more of their T-shirts as I am really pleased with the quality, which for the bargain price of £20 is pretty bloody brill. All of their tee's are unisex too so for all of the men that read my blog (and there are more of you than you'd think!) this one is for you too.

I actually got given these rings recently too and was wondering what I'd wear them with as I don't own anything pink, or anything that would compliment pink until now, so all in all I'm a pretty happy Army gal right about now!

Army Of No Country

Two very exciting things have happened this week. I made my first TV appearance on Wednesday for Mustard TV, and our Youtube channel has also just been launched! Bad news if you find my face annoying though, in which case I am sorry, but I was born like it.

Going on TV was so fun. They approached me and wanted to do an interview about M.E and me and to talk about what I am doing now which is just hoping to inspire people and trying to raise as much awareness not only for M.E but for disability in general as I can through blogging and also modelling. The presenters Darren Eadie and Beth Davison were so so lovely and the whole station were very accommodating. I had my hair and makeup done by a pro, although she said everything was pretty much perfect so it looks like the hours I have spent wasting my life away watching beauty guru's on YouTube has finally paid off... I'm pretty pleased with how the interview went, although watching yourself back is always super awkward, more so when you say about 100 W's when trying to tell them what your URL is.





YouTube!
Our YouTube channel 'A Spoonful Of She' has also just been launched! A little later than anticipated but live nonetheless. It is a channel set up with 5 girls (Emma, myself, Meg, Rachel and Sophia) who all have chronic health conditions which we will talk about on the channel, as well as uploading videos about fashion, beauty, vlogs, and basically whatever we feel like uploading! We'd really appreciate some love, so go and subscribe! ♥




Let me know if you watch my interview and what your thoughts are, also let me know if you are on YouTube too and I will come and show some love!

I was on TV and I'm now on YouTube!



How amazing is this vintage Versace bomber? Incredible, right? It reminds me of this Spice Girl bomber jacket that I had when I was 8, only 100x cooler. Not that there is anything wrong with a Spice Girl bomber, and nor will there ever be, but there is really no comparison between Versace and some knock off Spice Girl merch from the market. 

I'm also really loving this slick rick hair lately too, it reminds me of my dancing days when I was forced to wear my hair like this to class everyday, but back then I had really chubby cheeks and I just looked like one big ball, which the record which is not a good look!


I also just want to say thank you so much for all of the lovely messages, comments, tweets, etc after my story went into the newspapers again last week (see here) - as always I am incredibly inspired and humbled at how kind and supportive you all are.

So much love!

VERSACE


Yesterday I was in the Eastern Daily Press. (The paper covering East Anglia) You may (or may not) remember that at the end of 2014 I was featured in a dozen national newspapers, sharing my story with M.E and why I have chosen to pursue modelling, despite having the condition which I blogged about here

I thought I would share this feature on the blog too just because unless you are Beyonce, and let's face it I'm not (although admittedly my inner Beyonce unleashes/booty shakes every time I hear any song by Queen Bee) it's not everyday you are in the press and any positive publicity for M.E as an illness is great, as is highlighting disabled models and all we stand for. 

I should also note that the real Queen (not Queen Bee) was on the page before me - single page I should add, ohhh yeah.

Here is the link to it on their website:

Oh hey Queeny on the page before me, looking lovely, Lizzy, as always!

I just want to say again, how much the continuous support means to me, you honestly have no idea how appreciated it is, not only for supporting me as an individual with a chronic health condition, but also supporting my blog. I am forever grateful for this amazing platform.
