PREPARING MY HOME FOR SPRING (& SEEING THE WOOD FROM THE TREES)

OK so the weather may not exactly be playing ball right now, but we are now well and truly in spring! Which when it comes to our homes, means one thing only, it’s time for a good ol’ ‘spring clean’ and a sort out. I don’t know about you but I always think there’s something rather lovely and motivating about having a good tidy up. Getting organised. Throwing junk out.

THE ‘FACIAL’ YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT

ONE of the very best things about being a blogger is that I get to try out all kinds of things. Life, as they say, is never dull. And so it was last Friday, that I was fortunate enough to try out something, which I truly believe could take the UK by storm once people know about it. What did I try out? Facial reflexology.

FIVE THINGS WOMEN DO NOT NEED…IN ORDER TO BE HAPPY

I DON’T know about you, but my life is FULL. Full to the brim of stuff I need to do, stuff I need to keep, stuff I want to have. Emotional stuff. Happy stuff. Dark stuff. To do lists. Little notes on bits of paper. Reminders. Dates. Torn out recipes I want to try one day. Internal memos. Dreams, hopes and desires. Life. Love. Work. Relationships. Motherhood. I’m exhausted just even

A BIT OF ‘ALL WHITE’ IN ITALY

AFTER a fabulous week away living ‘La Dolce Vita’, I’m back in blighty and just about getting back to reality! How the devil are you all?! It feels a little silly writing this post today, as I sit huddled by the fire, with my woolies on (!), but seeing as we all need some sunshine, I thought I’d share a very ‘summery’ style post. (Think of it as my little dedication to

ITALY, HERE WE COME!

I’M feeling a little frantic today. But that’s OK, because there’s a very good reason why, as next week the three of us are off to Italy, kindly invited by the brilliant Bookings For You. Some of you may remember, I took a little trip back in October, with this super company and stayed in Lake Maggiore, a place we’d never been too previously. (You can catch it here, if

DAY TRIPPERS: A FAMILY DAY OUT IN LIVERPOOL

  WHEN I told Elsie I was taking her to Liverpool for the day, she was very excited. She thought that the city would be full of ‘pools’ and that she’d be spending the day in her swimsuit (well it kind of makes sense I guess!), and although I had to point out to her that this wasn’t quite the case, thankfully it didn’t dampen her enthusiasm! We did find

MY STYLE: ANIMAL PRINT & A LITTLE BLACK BAG

WHEN it comes to style, there are a few things I don’t think I’ll ever tire off. Skinny jeans, high heels and sequins are up there. As are animal prints and handbags too. I adore animal prints. At Uni I was known for my leopard print trousers (probably because I wore them to death!) and this love affair with all animal fabrics is one which has continued way into my thirties.

MY SEVEN GREATEST BLOGGING SINS (TO DATE)

A FEW days ago I delivered my first ever workshop! A 2.5hr blogging workshop bonanza in my home town of Barnsley to an eager, enthusiastic and absolutely lovely group. During it I chatted about my personal experience as a blogger, how I’ve made it to the level of ‘professional blogger’ (by that I mean, I do it professionally as a living) and talked about the importance of creating great content,
