The Roaccutane Diaries: Month 1

Roaccutane week 1I said that I would document my roaccutane journey ever since I got told I would be put on the drug and that I would call it the Roaccutane diaries and seeing as 1 month has now passed, (well actually 1 month and 1 week due to a fault the receptionist made booking my monthly derm appointment) here's my diary!

I haven't consistently taken photos. I don't wanna fill a post with too many photos and show you every single day. That would get boring. Just a weekly update will do and is the format I will be following. I'm also gonna talk about the highs and lows of the drug, what's been going on, and if anything has been working really well for me as your skin changes so dramatically. I have basically gone from oily to drier than the Sahara desert

Tea time. No time. All the time in the world. Dinner time. Doughnut Time. There all kinds of different times when you think about it. Yet we all struggle with time. I am the worst when it comes to time, yet my time management is spot on

Essentially what I mean is I struggle to balance things. I am always early to things and I keep my diary on form so I am never, ever late (unless public transport or traffic has other ideas). But I struggle to keep that balance between work and life and often dedicate an insane amount of time to one and not the other

You may have seen on my social media that I was at Blog At The Beach hosted by I was actually asked to be a speaker at the event due to my photography so this is where I spoke about travel photography (because they are a travel site after all) and thus #KayesTravelTips were born! Following the same format as my popular #KayesPortraitTips on social media, except in a presentation format this time. A lot of you were gutted to be unable to go to the event held in Leeds so I have decided to write a blog post describing my tips just for you

2018 goals and the future

Kaye Ford

I am super late with this kind of post I know. Fashionably late one might argue to make it seem like I am not a complete rubbish person. A whole 9 days late is just ridiculous that it must be fashionable
The title makes it seem like something that should have been announced as soon as 2018 hit, but in reality we all kinda set ourselves goals daily and monthly so this is just a way for me to write mine down to try and make them actually happen! That way people read it too and if you want to help me, hooray I can achieve some of my goals

My 2017 in a nutshell

Another year is drawing to an end and another year full of ups and downs, various achievements and whatnot. It's kind of amazing to reflect back near the end of a year at what you did achieve and go through to fill you with hope and strength for the new year to come. Life is never easy and simple but hey, we made it. We survived another year and we all achieved something no matter how large or small

I am never one to really reflect on what I did achieve. I'm more of a pessimist and I tend to focus on the negatives that happened in a year. But no. This time I am going to write about the positives that did happen to me and I want you all to do the same

She's Electric // Electric Ink skincare

Electric Ink skincare
It is no secret I have a lot of tattoos. I got 4 in the space of one month recently and I share it all over my social media for you to have a look
Want to know what I hate about new tattoos though? They make your other ones, older ones, look rubbish! New ones are vibrant and fresh and stay that way for a good few months before they start to dull down like your older ones. I don't really have any colour on me so it isn't as bad but black & grey tattoos can dull down too

This is where Electric Ink skincare can help!

The Roaccutane Diaries

Well it has finally happened! After years of struggling with cystic acne and being on constant antibiotics and bugging the GP, I finally got a referral to a dermatologist on the NHS. I had to then wait 18 weeks for the actual appointment to come around but it happened, I have been prescribed roaccutane!

Dairy free chocolate?!

Raw Halo Chocolate
I don't really enjoy dairy. I don't drink milk and I don't tend to have cereal. I hate butter and refuse to eat it in sandwiches. I only eat cheese on a pizza and I only have milk in milk chocolate and ice cream. It's a weird habit to have seeing as I am not lactose intolerant. I just don't like those components when they aren't included in things. I hate the smell and taste of milk and the same with cheese really

But hold on, I can get milk chocolate without the milk?! "hello, I would like to order all of your milk-less milk chocolate please"
Say hello to Raw Halo. Raw, organic, refined sugar and dairy free chocolate

The Botanist, Farnham

The Botanist, Farnham
I'm going to let you all in on a secret. I am a complete hipster. I love cocktail bars and especially ones that have a theme running throughout and that have taken the effort with what they serve you

I went to an event at the Trading House in London and found out that there are chains similar to this one across the UK. The people who own the Trading House also own a chain called The Botanist and after looking it up I knew just straight away that I had to visit one and try it all for myself! The cocktail menu alone and the botany theme throughout it just peaked my interest and my love for cute cocktails and well thought out menus

Spec-tacular // David Clulow Opticians

David Clulow Opticians
I bet y'all didn't know I am meant to wear glasses 24/7. To be honest, it is something I forget. I go for an eye test and I get glasses and then I fall out of love with them easily and stop enjoying wearing them. I also completely neglect my eyesight, which I really shouldn't do considering I need it for my job after all. I am always quick to make a GP appointment for ailments, but I never regularly check my eyesight and make sure everything is A-OK and nothing bad is happening behind the scenes
