Hi, my name is Alysha and I am 23 years young!  In 2010 I had my first cancer diagnosis, in 2011 I had my second.  In 2013 I was told I was in remission.  These diagnoses not only put a dent into my life plans, but also altered the course of my life completely.  However, they also meant that I met some amazing people, had some fab experiences and have made friends that I will cherish forever.  They also led to new hobbies, hobbies that eventually lead me to this blog!  When you have no hair, or eyebrows, or eyelashes and look a bit ill you can get a bit of a small fascination with makeup, skincare and anything that makes you feel normal and that’s what I did!

However, I’m not going to go into anymore detail about that because that’s not what this blog is about.

So why life, love, flowers?  When thinking about what name I could use this just fit, straight away, like it was meant to be (as cheesy as that sounds).  I didn’t even try and think of another name.  But that being said, I do have things to say about each word, things that go into why I never tried to think of any other name.

Life:  If my past experiences have taught me anything, it’s that you never know what’s going to happen, and you can be damned sure that most of the time you will NOT be prepared for whatever it is.  You can, however, make the most of your life!  Do the things you’ve always wanted, buy the things you like and sing the songs you love!  Live everyday.

Love: Whether it’s for yourself, another person, or your animals!  Remember, a little love goes a long way.

Flowers:  Flowers are proof that no matter how bad things get in the world, there’s always room for those little everyday miracles.

So there you have it!  A little about me, a little bit about why I chose to do the blog and a little bit explaining the name.  I hope you find something you like!
