$100 Target Giveaway; Fashionably ill ® Celebrates 5 Years!

Hello friends! I’m excited to be pairing up with my dear friend, advocate, and author, Holly Bertone, for a $100 Target gift card giveaway.  We’re celebrating the 5th anniversary of this blog, Fashionably ill ®!  (Scroll to bottom of post for the Rafflecopter, where you can enter the contest)

My blog, Fashionably ill, and I are celebrating our 5 year anniversary so of course we have to celebrate! I started the blog in 2012 because I wanted to be a voice for people who have mental illness AND 24/7 chronic pain issues. I have myasthenia gravis, bipolar 2, polycystic ovarian syndrome, psoriasis, and asthma. I am also a contributor to The Huffington Post.  I sometimes visit readers in hospitals to give them makeovers; my most recent makeover is of a woman named Megan who beat stage 4 cancer.  I love public speaking because I get to meet people who read my blog.  My TEDx Talk, “How to Get Stuff Done When You are Depressed” just surpassed 800,000 views.  Last month, I finally got to meet Holly Bertone–someone I have admired for so long.  She has survived cancer and autoimmune diseases and helped countless people–check out her blog, Pink Fortitude here!

 

The giveaway runs from Wednesday, August 2nd at 01:00 AM EST through Tuesday, August 8th at 11:45 PM EST.

 

Good luck!

Hi, I have five illnesses--bipolar disorder, myasthenia gravis (neuromuscular autoimmune disease), polycystic ovarian syndrome, asthma, and psoriasis. Most of the organs in my body are affected. I'm dedicated to being a stylist for sick women. As someone who has experienced changes in my appearance due to my 12 meds (including Prednisone), I know how hard it can be when your face and body change overnight. (In fact, because of treatment, between 2008 to 2010, I went from a size 0 to a size 10. While I lost the weight, there are permanent changes in my face and body, which I've grown to appreciate.) My blog will also help women deal with other issues like surviving chronic pain and fatigue. Healthy people can also use this blog as a window into what life with illness is like. Let this website be a place where we can draw strength from each other despite our illnesses and find solutions to our everyday challenges!
