Thoughts on care values: Abuse and neglect in Whorlton Hall



Recently, I have watched the programme about Whorlton Hall (Durham) on BBC Panorama and it made me feel all kinds of emotions. I could not believe the abuse and manipulation that was shown on screen. 

Having worked as a support worker for individuals with Autism and learning difficulties for over two years, I have learned about the importance of care values and abuse prevention. 

Unfortunately, not all care providers follow the principles of safeguarding. In this post, I will discuss my thoughts on care values and reflect on the consequences of abuse and neglect.

Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick Review: Is it Worth the Hype?




Everyone is talking about Jeffree Star and his makeup these days. I don't personally care about the drama and chaos, just makeup. 

While the rest of the world is discussing his new powders and concealers, like usual I am late to the party to testing even his most known makeup, namely the liquid lipsticks.

To be honest, I never was inclined to buy a liquid lipstick myself from the brand as I thought that I could get something similar at the drugstore. Nevertheless, my dear friend gifted a lovely velour lipstick for my birthday. I had to take this opportunity and review the lipstick for you guys.

For this review, I will be talking about Jeffree Star liquid lipstick from the Alien collection in the shade “Hi, How are Ya?”

How to survive Mother's Day if you had a dysfunctional childhood



Mother’s Day has been long gone in England, however its blissfully artificial fantasy will soon take place in America. I missed out writing about Mother’s Day when it happened in UK, however I think it is still important to address the issues associated with this event. Mother’s Day can cause past trauma, negative memories and suffering from childhood to resurface. Being bombarded with images of happy families in their picture-perfect homes is nothing but torture for the mind. If you have had a dysfunctional childhood in which your parent did not love you or care - you may ask yourself – how do I survive this celebration?  How do I cope with being motherless / parent-less?

Life Update: palm trees, birthday reflections and education


All right, I should probably start this post by saying – it’s been a while. It feels like I have totally abandoned this blog. It has not been my intention, life just got a little bit crazy! I don’t know about you but when I was a little girl, time used to pass slowly like a snail. Every single occasion, it felt like I had to wait an eternity for. Nowadays, it’s so fast that I often lose track of it. In addition, fatigue results in me wasting time on pointless activities or not doing anything at all.

I’m a working machine in real life but when I reflect more about my work ethic and habits, perhaps I am addicted to work itself – that’s not healthy. Who knows, maybe I’m not the only one, using my work as a place to get away from negative thoughts inside my head.

Anyway, today I have decided to use my free time wisely and write this post for you guys. The purpose of this post is to give you some updates on my life before I return to my usual posts.
