Hello & Welcome

Welcome to Lolita Coquette.

This is a personal beauty and lifestyle blog I’m going to use to express myself, share my opinions and knowledge, and give some insight on trying to live a better than average life with a chronic illness. I have Hypermobile Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, an inheritable collagen disorder, which means that I am extremely flexible, and tend to dislocate joints, especially knees in my case, alongside several comorbidities. Many people have it worse than me, some people have it better, but I am determined to live an ambitious life which is not impeded by this. So, I will be sharing what I do to make my life easier, and more able to follow my passions.

I am a qualified beauty therapist, and as anyone in my field will tell you, everyone is different, and what works for me may not work for everyone.

So this is my disclaimer: although I do wish to spread my experience and advise people, in the end, it’s whatever works for you. If I say; “OMG don’t use petroleum jelly it sticks like clingfilm to your skin and doesn’t let it breathe!”, well, maybe you like it, and it works for you. In that case, fair enough. All I can do is share my experience, and what I’ve been taught.

Anyway, thanks for visiting, and I hope you find the content here interesting and helpful!
