Health

Blog posts about my health journey and how I have dealt with many chronic illnesses.

My annual Instagram giveaway is here for Lyme Disease and Tick-borne illness awareness. This year the prize is full of cruelty free and vegan makeup, so that everyone can enter. The whole point of this giveaway is that you read my previous blog post Tick-borne Illness and Lyme Disease Awareness Month 2018, and learn more about how devastating these illnesses can be. Tick-borne diseases have completely ruined my life. I don’t want another person to suffer the way I have, and the first step to stop that from happening is to raise awareness. You will need to go to my Instagram to enter the giveaway but continue reading this post as it shows you what you can win and what the rules for entering are.

I have to say a big thank you to three businesses that have donated items to this giveaway, Herba Apotheca, Eye Of Horus Cosmetics and Furless. When you have a moment, check out each website as they all sell great products. The prize includes:

A chamomile and calendula cold pressed soap, wooden soap dish and lip balm from Herba Apotheca.
