Hello! If you're looking to know more about me and my blog then you've come to the right place!

Back in November 2011 I started up a tiny blog that no one read for months where I shared my growing love for makeup and since then things have progressed a lot and now nearly 5 years on you can still find me chatting away about beauty on here but I also talk cover lifestyle topics and anything and everything surrounding disability. 

I'm 20 years old and I live in Hertfordshire, blogging isn't my job but it's what I spend the majority of my time doing to keep me occupied! I have a genetic condition called Marfan Syndrome alongside various secondary conditions which leave me in severe chronic pain, this has meant I've not been able to complete my education or go to work so I keep myself busy by blogging and enjoy talking about topics surrounding disability to try and raise some awareness. I've shared my story and journey with my health and my various surgeries on here so if you are interested in that then just search 'Marfan Syndrome' or 'Scoliosis' in the search bar to the right.

I started my blog when I was just 14 years old as my health worsened and I felt more and more isolated, entering the world of blogging introduced me to this whole community that I've loved ever since then. I've grown up with my blog and you can probably see that through my writing over the years so I hope you enjoy reading my posts while you are here!




  1. Keep spreading the love for beauty :)


  2. Hiya hun, are you not doing youtube videos now? When i sesrched cant find any of your videos xxx

  3. Your skin is soooooooo gorgeous!

  4. It's funny cause when I started reading your blog I assumed you were Irish! Just cause you name is Shona (that's Irish, right? Maybe I'm wrong!) and I don't you, you kind of look Irish! Haha anyway I love your blog, you are so dedicated to it!
    My best friend has scoliosis & she has had two operations meaning that she was out of school for a few months :( She is fine now (although of course her back still hurts) & hopefully she won't need anymore operations! I'm wondering will you be having the same operation in September - where you'll get metal rods in your back to help support the spine? Anyway I'm sorry that you have scoliosis and although I'll never really understand or know the pain I completely sympathise.

    Love Niamh xx

    1. Haha, a lot of people assume I'm either Irish or Scottish as Shona are very popular names there and I have ginger hair haha :) Thank you lovely, that really means a lot!

      I will, I'll be having two metal rods and plenty of screws put on my spine! Thank you lovely <3

    1. Thanks for letting me know about this,will think about it :)

  7. I've just found your blog and we actually have a lot in common! I'm 16 too, I also started blogging in 2011 and I changed my blog name in April 2014 as well because I no longer liked my original! Now there's a coincidence for you haha.

  8. I got my reclining tilting powered wheelchair free via my OT on the NHS, get your gp or consultant to refer you for an assessment.

    1. At the beginning of the year I did that, I was referred to wheelchair services on the NHS but because I could walk inside my home without assistance they said they couldn't give me a powerchair. My health has declined a lot since then though so I'm going to be referred again soon and hopefully this time they can help now that I struggle to even get around my house.
