Facial Palsy Awareness Week 1st-7th March

So today I have something a little different for you.  As some of you may know I suffer from a condition called Facial Palsy, which means my face is not symmetrical (Asymmetrical). I have suffered with this for the past 4 yrs after an operation on my ear which damaged my facial nerve. In a world where beauty is very often judged by the symmetry of your face it hasn’t been easy for me, and I have suffered many physiological effects over the years.

There are over 100,000 people estimated to suffer from Facial Palsy in the UK, and thousands more around the world. During the next week I will be doing all I can to raise awareness for this great cause, so keep a look out for my posts.

If you would like to read my story and learn more about the effects of facial palsy visit the facial palsy UK website:


So firstly I want to say a massive thank you to al those amazing nail artists who took part in this collaboration to raise awareness.  I was so touched by the support and it really did give me a warm fuzzy feeling inside. I have to say I shed a tear as the love and care shown by the nail art community often astounds me.

For links to all the nail artists who took part check out my post on Instagram where I have tagged all the artists.  Once again thank you to all, it really means a lot to me.

So there are lots of different initiatives going on to raise awareness and I would love all my followers to get involved and create purple nails tagging them with #FaceMyDay.

  1. Wow what a fabulous article. I can’t believe you’re. Spurs fan. So is my hubby! (I dragged him from north London to toronto, Canada but he is a massive fan for 24 years). I think you’re beautiful before and after Botox. Thanks for sharing your story xx

    • Ahh huni thank you so much for taking the time to read the article. I was unfortunately at Wembley today watching us loose to Chelsea 😦 did your hubby get to watch the match?

      • I’m not surprised, I’m taking myself to bed for an early night 🙂 hopefully this is not a sign of how the rest of our season will go.
