Hi there! My name is Josie, I'm 26 and I split my time between South East London and Brighton. I don't like tea, cats or cystic fibrosis (CF) but I do like shoes. A lot. 

I originally started this blog to try and raise a bit of awareness of living with CF but then I quickly got distracted by fashion. Story of my life! This blog is basically my little diary, where I post outfit pics, a sprinkling of beauty and ramble on about nonsense, including too much about my dog Freddy. I still do blog about life as a sick chick to raise awareness of cystic fibrosis, which you can find in posts labelled 'CF' and I wrote a lot about it on my CF page. You can also find out loads more on the official website. It can be a pretty grim thing to live with, but I don't let it take over my life. Clothes on the other hand...

In March 2016 I was placed on the double lung transplant list after my health deteriorated to the point I wouldn't survive without one due to the effects of cystic fibrosis. I was lucky enough to receive my new lungs in July 2016 and I now blog about my adventures post-transplant (hence the blog name!) as well as still documenting outfits and other random bits and bobs that no one in my offline life wants to hear about. I like to keep this blog rather candid and generally capture photos taken with an iPhone so it's not the *glossiest* site out there - however I'm hoping that that's all part of it's 'charm'! ;-)

If you'd like to get in touch for anything my email is whatjosiedidnext@gmail.com - I'd love to hear from you!

Oh, and just a quick disclaimer...any products sent for review will have a 'c/o' or * next to the item and I always add a disclaimer at the end of sponsored posts. All links, whether it's for paid content or a product review will be NO-FOLLOW.

  1. I love shoes too!

  2. I also blog about my chronic illness, and am trying to branch out and post more style, beauty and lifestyle posts - although my illness controls my every move and decision, it still doesn't define me and there's much more to me than being an 'ill person'. As you'll know illness can take over your life so sometimes it's difficult to blog about anything but it, especially when you want to raise awareness, but your blog has inspired me to talk about different things that interest me as an individual, sans illness!
