Hi! I’m Lola, a qualified beauty therapist, currently residing in Australia. I have Hypermobile Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, a connective tissue disorder that means primarily that I’m hyperflexible and dislocate my joints easily, among other co-morbities (other medical issues, basically).

Becoming increasingly limited in what I am able to do, I decided to start blogging as a way of expressing myself, and to connect with others who may be experiencing similar situations to me, as well as to whoever else wants to read my ramblings. I post about lifestyle, beauty, skincare, makeup and random things I’m passionate about.

Here are some of them!

  • Travel (I’ve lived in several places, including Singapore, where I was able to travel a lot, fortunately)
  • Languages (currently learning Indonesian and Mandarin, as well as struggling with Irish)
  • Ancient history and mythology
  • Nutrition and cooking – it’s a must to have an interest when your body starts rejecting and reacting to more and more
  • Music – always been a singer, although jaw issues have pretty much put a stop to that now
  • Video games – especially fantasy…I’m not great at them but I force myself through with sheer rage
  • Art
  • Writing – currently working on a children’s book and a book of short stories
  • Film and TV – what else to do when you’re too exhausted to do anything else? And what’s more bingeable than Korean drama for a bad pain day?

If you want to get in touch with me, I’m most active on Instagram or you can email me at lolitacoquetteblog@gmail.com. Feel free to check out my Tumblr to see things that I like/inspire me too!
