My Vacation to Cayo Coco, Cuba

Hello everyone,

I recently got back from my summer holiday in Cuba, and whilst I was there I took a few photos in the resort and around Cayo Coco, I wanted to document my vacation and share it on here for you guys.

Scar confidence after scoliosis surgery

Hello everyone,

As I've previously stated in older posts, I've grown to love my scar, but it took me awhile to become confident with it.

The fact that my scar was on show didn't bother me, I've actually grown to love it! I mainly love it because it's symbolic of how strong I can be and I am very proud of it.

When it came to sun exposure on my scar, I thought I would be very cautious and to be honest for the first couple of days I didn't really stay out in the sun for too long as I didn't want to burn my scar, however I found as the holiday…
