I really don’t want this post to be a woe is me kind of post but I wanted to write my experiences and document things down so I can look back at how things have changed in my life over the last two months. Going forward, I want to be able to see how things have improved and changed and hear from others about their experiences and how others are dealing with their chronic pain. I honestly never thought that I would be in a position where my life would change to an extent where I would be on constant…

As much as I adore perfumes, and you know that I really do, I always end up going back to my old faithful friends of fragrance. For a heady, luxurious scent I love my Bella Bellissima White Leather whilst for a night out it has to be Tom Ford Velvet Orchid.

Having worn Viktor and Rolf Flowerbomb since around 2006, it has become one of my most repurchased bottles of fragrance out of all that I own.…
