My Story

Improve Your Health and Well-Being

Want to find out about improving your health and well-being? You’ve come to the right place.

The FABulous living website will inform you about a variety of topics and products to help improve your health and well-being and live your best life. Particularly if you have an illness or condition that affects your quality of life. Topics will include: healthy food/diet; food supplements (such as, cannabidiol (CBD) and other cannabinoids); exercise/training programmes; and healthy lifestyle choices. There’s a vast array of information and products out there, many of which are unreliable. A quick Google search shows the minefield that exists. So, it is my intention to provide you with accurate, relevant and up-to-date information. This will allow you to source and select high quality health and well-being strategies and products that are most relevant for your needs.

Why me and FABulous living?

I am in an excellent position to help you help yourself. In addition to successfully turning my own health and well-being around, I have higher education qualifications in Health Research and Education. I write scientifically backed articles to improve your knowledge of health and well-being topics. These will help you to make informed choices to improve your own health and well-being. Having a true passion for the subject, I regularly devote a significant proportion of my time reading and critically analysing relevant academic research articles on a range of health and well-being subjects. I enjoy sharing these with you.

I fully understand the devastating effects of having a health condition that destroys your quality of life. And how difficult it is to recover. I managed to find strategies that let me regain my quality of life and well-being. This was a very long, drawn out process because I had no-one to help or guide me. I want to do that for other people. If I can help make the process a bit quicker and easier for people in similar circumstances, I will.

Health and Well-Being Products

I showcase a FABulous, high quality range of relevant health and well-being products. In the interests of transparency, I have not personally used all of the products that I showcase. However, I only share products that I am happy to purchase and use myself. Please be aware that I make no claims about the products shared on this website. They are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease; unless scientifically proven and specifically stated by the manufacturer. The products have either personally helped me or helped other people to improve their lives in one way or another. They may or may not help you.

Living FABulously with Fibromyalgia Merchandise

I was fed up with the poor range of fibromyalgia merchandise to choose from, so have designed 2 collections that you can purchase on RedBubble. The Butterfly Collection and White Tiger Collection each have 11 designs to choose from, and RedBubble has a range of different products with each design to suit every budget. Every design is my own and unique to FABulous living. All proceeds from merchandise sales goes back into the business to produce new research and educational materials. So, please help me help others to self-manage their health conditions effectively. 

Affiliate Marketing

It’s important to me that the educational aspects of this site remain free for everyone. So, I also use affiliate links for relevant health and well-being products and services. At no additional cost to you. These links allow me to earn a small commission on any products that you have clicked to view and then go on to buy within a limited time-frame (usually 30 days). Your purchase helps support my work in bringing you real information about health and holistic wellness. You pay the same price regardless of how you get to the seller website; and you can enter any discount codes at the checkout as normal. Some companies provide me with discount codes for specific products, which I share whenever available. The affiliate links in no way bias my opinion of any product and if I am paid to give any reviews, this will be fully disclosed.

Charity Partner – More Than Fibro SCIO

FABulous living has partnered with fibromyalgia charity More Than Fibro SCIO; a FABulous organisation that provides support and information to fibromyalgia sufferers and their loved ones. 10% of all commissions earned through affiliate links are donated to More Than Fibro. So, not only will buying products through my affiliate links cost you exactly the same price; you will be helping to raise funds for More Than Fibro in the process. You’ll raise funds for them at NO extra cost or hassle to you.

More Than Fibro provide online support through social media and work to raise awareness and understanding of this complex condition. They also provide advocacy services to members and their carers. Run by volunteers with fibromyalgia, they are a friendly, welcoming bunch who encourage a can-do attitude. There are lots of opportunities for members to get involved, volunteer and feel valued. You can contact More Than Fibro via their website or Facebook page. The donations from your purchases through my links will help More Than Fibro further develop their services and reach a wider audience.

If you, or someone you love, has fibromyalgia, I highly recommend joining the More Than Fibro Facebook groups. They currently have a general support group; a group for members living in Edinburgh and Lothians; a men only group; an events group; and a fundraising group. If you find them through this website, please let them know I pointed you in their direction.

Please Enjoy Your Visit

Please enjoy your visit. Contact me if you have any questions about anything posted on the site; or anything additional about health and well-being that you’d like to see; and I’ll do my best to help you. Please also let me know if my advice helps you in any way. If you want to know a bit more about my story, you can find out here.

Although I am a trained health researcher, I am not, nor pretend to be, a trained medical professional. All information provided is intended to be helpful; it is not intended to replace the advice of a qualified medical professional.

Please note that the website, like myself, is a work in progress and is updated regularly.
