    Life Isn’t All About “Likes”

    While this is not new to people living in Australia, Instagram has recently removed the ability to see how many people have liked posts in the USA, so the debate has started up all over again. With this move bringing up other topics such as mental health, I feel like…

    The “Made by Mum” Fashion Label

    Finding clothes that fit, due to my scoliosis, unusual body shape and because I’m sitting down all the time, is sometimes quite hard, so I’m very lucky that my mum can sew. So, when it comes to many race day dresses, they’re from the label “Made by Mum”. From 24…

    I’m Not Your Inspiration

    “You’re an inspiration” is a common saying many people with disabilities hear and let’s just say it’s not always a compliment. This post is probably not as light-hearted as some of my other posts, but it’s a topic that needs to be talked about in order to break down barriers,…
