I’m Abby. I am 24 years old! I got pretty sick in April of 2016 which resulted in being left with some chronic illnesses. We are still searching for the right answers and diagnosis. I started a blog that just focused on that and I sometimes would write about grief (my dad unexpectedly died when I was 18 and I found him). I started that blog in the summer of 2017 but decided it was time for a change!
I have always loved fashion and shopping for a good deal. I love old navy, target, walmart, amazon, bath & body works, and I love supporting small businesses; and so much more! I can’t wait to talk more about that! When I got sick and had to start using my wheelchair and walker I stopped focusing on fashion just wore what was comfy and really didn’t like putting my picture on social media. Thanks to a good friend who did an outfit challenge I quickly fell back in love with all things fashion. I wanted to start showing people that no matter your age or if you use a wheelchair or walker you should be happy in your own skin! I also want to show people that its ok to take pictures in a wheelchair and walker. The world needs more awareness. So I combined my love of advocating and raising awareness for chronic illnesses and my love of shopping into this website! I am so excited!
After I got sick and needed a wheelchair, a walker, and a scooter. I really strayed away from posting pictures and just wore baggy comfy clothes. Recently I found a passion for fashion again. I am here to tell you it doesn’t matter if you need a medical device, if your not happy with the size, age, etc. You just have to start loving yourself and in return you will start to feel more comfortable and happier. I am now posting almost daily pictures on Instagram and I don’t give it much thought! I want to show people it is ok to have fun with clothes and accessories even if you aren’t want “society” thinks you should be. You have a voice and you matter.
I love watching Netflix and I am starting to enjoy reading again. I love blogging and helping people find clothes/accessories/etc that they like and that make them feel good. I try to spread kindness around every day. I also enjoy cheering on the Iowa Hawkeyes football and basketball. Fun fact I really enjoy March Madness!
