Meeting Fashioneyesta

If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ll know that one of my favourite Youtubers is Fashioneyesta, aka Emily Davison. And this Monday I actually got to meet her and spend the day with her, much to my delight. She’s now posted a wonderful vlog of the day on her FashioneyestaExtra channel, so I wanted to blog about it from my own perspective as well.

Hysteria (Def Leppard) – Box Set Review

For my birthday this month, my mother has paid for a couple of recently released music boxsets I wanted to get, and this is a review of the first one I’ve received – a boxset celebrating the 30th anniversary of Def Leppard’s Hysteria album.

I also did an unboxing video so you can see everything that’s in the set. I did have a go at doing a first listen review video for disc 1 as well, but even just for one disc the editing required would have taken too long. It’s far easier to write a review really. So I hope you enjoy my review in this post!

Small Youtuber Tag

For this post and video, I’m doing the small Youtuber tag, which I decided to do after seeing Annie Elainey’s video. I don’t know if she originally created the tag but that’s where I found it. Her Youtube channel is well worth checking out as well, she’s a brilliant disability campaigner and blogger.

Anyway, on with my answers to the tag, I hope you enjoy!

My Favourite Computer Games – Part 3

For the final part of my nostalgic look back at my favourite computer games (following on from Part 1 and Part 2), I’m now going to look at games I enjoyed on the first 2 PlayStation consoles. I spent many happy hours playing on these, meaning there’s quite a few games to mention. So in this post I’m going to mention a few of my favourite platform and adventure games.

Room 101 – My Visually Impaired Frustrations

An edited version of this post appears on the RNIB Connect website.

For this post, I thought I’d do something a bit like the TV show Room 101 (where celebrities nominate their pet hates to be locked away forever). It’s named after the torture chamber in George Orwell’s novel 1984, which is said to contain “the worst thing in the world”. We also had a Room 101 at my college which was rather memorable, because it was the examinations office! So that felt both appropriate and ominous!

So I wanted to do a post along those lines, using it as an excuse to list some things that frustrate or irritate me because I have a visual impairment. I’ve also made a Youtube video to accompany it. It’s not at all intended to be offensive or to upset anyone, and I’m not a negative or moaning person. I’m actually very positive, as I’ve hopefully conveyed throughout this blog. But it’s nice to get some things off your chest now and again, and to try and spread a bit of awareness in the process.
