STYLING A STATEMENT T-SHIRT

Image
I enjoy the flexibility and versatility of fashion today and how we have all come to be so much more experimental and expressive with our clothes. A good statement t-shirt has always been a fashion staple; with the ability to dress it up or down, making it appropriate attire for any occasion or event and one of my many favourite pieces to style. Fashion bloggers worldwide have all shared how they like to style their favourite t-shirts and given us tips on how we can too. A statement shirt is not only a trendy or fashionable item, they can capture our moods, express our personalities, be humorous, motivate, encourage and even remind us of things we wouldn't like to forget.

SICKLE CELL & ITS PHYSICAL SCARS

Image
Sickle Cell has left behind a few scars on my sister as I'm sure it has with many other sufferers and just at the age of 25, she has sadly physically gone through a lot. She only just recently again came home from yet another crisis episode after a few days in hospital where it was discovered that she had developed a 4.8cm large sized ovarian cyst. Thankfully, it is not at the point where her doctors were concerned about a torsion (a situation where the weight of the cyst causes the ovaries to flip over which results in significant pain in the lower abdomen) but have her on scheduled observations and meds to avoid an emergency situation.
