supporting my fundraising!

I’m just trying to get the word out. Because as my event looms closer, it’s looking more like an awareness event, then a fundraising event. I will be doing this walk either way.

I have been very open about my own mental health journey on here: Would you have known?

I am a pageant princess and finalist, representing Bristol, UK.

Miss Mystic Princess 2021/22 & Ms Bristol 21/22 MMB Finalist.

And at the end of next month, I’ll be taking on a sponsored walk for 16.6 miles in aid of Meningitis Research Foundation & Grassroots Suicide Prevention.

Walk event: Sponsored Walk: 16.6 for Grassroots and Meningitis Research Foundation UK.

The above is the official event on Facebook I have created for this walk. Below is the JustGiving link.

Just Giving link is https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/missbristolmysticsponsoredwalk?utm_term=8XwM2M8ZM

Daily walks are held as a huge positive for mental health. Most days I can barely go out to walk around my local neighbourhood. So you can imagine the challenge of walking 16.6 miles will be for me. Thankfully I will be joined by family, and my son will join a portion of the walk too. I also hope to livestream sections for both proof and record but also to hopefully drive some support. This will be via my personal Instagram.

Thank you as always for reading and supporting me.

Jackson’s return to pageantry.

Jackson started competing in pageantry when he was 4 months old. He has supported many different pageant systems, all over the UK. And we was really busy throughout 2019, attending at least a pageant a month. But we’ve been so very busy, preparing for his first national stage,with Pure UK. but over this last winter period, September 2019 – December 2019, for personal reasons, Jackson took a break from pageant land.

Recently, on the 18th January 2020, Jackson made his return. He attended and competed in Miss Ice Queen, at 2 years old, he walked his best guided stage walk, and won the charity crown in his boys section, he received 4 certificates; best hair, most confident, best in evening wear & most potential. He came second.

Through the various pageants he has raised more then £85.45 for various charities including; Ronald McDonald House, Cats Protection, The Salvation Army, Giddo’s Gift, and The Christie… to name a few.

We’re so proud of him, and how much he’s grown up. I love seeing his photos, and he enjoys all the lovely friends and pageant family we’ve met. Next/this coming weekend, is the pure UK finals. We can not wait to share our experience. I will write a separate blog post for Pure UK after the busy weekend is over.

I wonder what the future years will bring to us as a family, within the pageant world.

Family Outing: Windmill Hill City Farm.

As Jackson is now 10 months old, and a lot more inquisitive of the world around him. I thought it’d be a good idea to take him to a local farm. Ideally I would of took him to visit a proper working farm, but time and money was not on our side.  Instead while we was searching for somewhere, suitable for our son, we stumbled across Windmill Hill City Farm, located in Bedminster, Bristol. This city farm is a registered charity, so it relies solely on the communities generosity. This makes it a perfect outing for families, as entry isn’t a set fee. You donate what you can afford.

I loved how interactive the farm was from reading about it, from the play area for children, to buying animal food in the gift shop, to feed the various farm animals. You could even stroke and pet the farm animals. Don’t worry, there’s plenty of hand sanitizer around the farm, plus toilet facilities near the central hub. The central hub is the centre of the farm, and is home to the café, play area, and toilets.

This was our first ever visit to the city farm. Jackson was excited to see more animals. He loves the cats and dogs, various family pets. At the city farm, Jackson got to see many farm animals including; Pigs, Goats, Sheep, Cows, Chickens and Geese. I’ll include some pictures from the day. But I didn’t take much, as we just enjoyed the day, and made memories.

All in all, it was a fun day out and helped us spend some time together as a family. We’ll be back in the future.

Enjoy these photos of a happy little boy, taken during our visit.
