Bank holiday greetings to you all from the Emerald Isle!
This is a short post from me today, as family life has taken over at the moment, but I just wanted to quickly stop by and offer you some inspiration … and of course a little bit of style!
Firstly the inspiration (or as I constantly see on Facebook and Instagram … some ‘inspo’ … seriously? Are we now so lazy that we no longer bother pronouncing full words? I swear it sets my teeth on edge) But I digress! Cyndi Lauper, a singing sensation beloved by many of us in the ‘80s, recently went public about her battle with psoriasis. She has now teamed up with the National Psoriasis Foundation in the USA along with the pharmaceutical company, Novartis, to front a campaign called ‘I’m PsO ready’ The phenomenally talented and extraordinary RickGuidotti photographed Cyndi for this … how stunning does she look?
This lady is speaking my language, with soundbites such as “I want people living with psoriasis to understand we don't have to settle for life like this.” It’s just wonderful when people in the public arena come forth to speak about their disease. It really does help other sufferers to feel less alone, and in this case, I love the fact that Cyndi is really challenging everyone to recognise that this is no longer a life sentence and it’s time to start taking control. Go Cyndi!

However, no post would be complete without a little bit of fashion. Those of you who follow me on Facebook and Twitter (come join us; links are on the top right hand side of this page) will know that I also do a monthly blog post for Leo Pharma, where I respond to various psoriasis related fashion dilemmas that have appeared on online searches. This month is all about True Colours (boom! boom! geddit?!) aka, what colours to wear to disguise flaking. Just click here to read the article.
And finally, a quick shot of my latest purchase. A little leopard print to brighten up a rainy bank holiday weekend. Special discounts available in House of Fraser this weekend, so this Biba beauty ended up only costing €41. Would have been rude to leave that behind! Now all I need is a night out ...
Happy weekend y’all!
