EXCITING NEWS, A BOOK UPDATE & A THANK YOU

TODAY, before I begin… I just want to say a big ol’ thank you to everyone who commented on, shared or contacted me about Friday’s post. To be honest I’ve been a little overwhelmed by all the kind, lovely comments. However you should all know they came at a time when I absolutely needed them so thank you so much. You made a sad lady a lot happier. And a

THE TALE OF THE UNPLEASANT EMAIL (AND OUR IMPACT ON OTHERS)

I wasn’t going to write a post today. I was going to have a full day off and do very little. You see, I had some very sad news this morning. A friend of mine, the husband of one my closest friends, passed away yesterday after a battle with cancer, and so as I’m feeling more than a little emotional right now, I decided I’d step away from the laptop and

WHY DO WE CARE?…

WHAT people think about us? What they may say behind our back or in the company of others. Why do we care if people like us or not?  Some people will, others won’t. So what’s the big deal? Why do we care if people look at us in the street or when we’re out and about? Surely it’s better to be noticed than to be invisible? Isn’t it? Why do we

SPONSORED POST: LOOK THE BUSINESS WITH M&S

WHEN it comes to smart attire, it’s all about the tailoring. My Dad taught me that years ago – he used to make childrenswear so knows about all clothing and the like – and he’s absolutely spot on. If you want to look smart, groomed and professional, there’s only one thing for it. You have to invest in tailored clothes that fit you perfectly and make you feel incredible. A sharp

MONK BRETTON PRIORY (EXPLORING & FINDING TREASURES)

AFTER a week of being housebound with germs, getting outside at the weekend was a must. A chance to blow off some cobwebs. A chance to visit somewhere we’ve never been. (Even though it’s practically right on our doorstep.) After a relaxing Saturday morning watching films (and crying at the beginning of UP!) we ventured out to Monk Bretton Priory – a ruined medieval priory, less than 10 mins away

HOW TO MAKE AN APEROL SPRITZ (PIH STYLE)

WHO’S up for learning how to make a new boozy drink this weekend? You are? Brilliant. Let’s get on with the show then. If you haven’t yet tried an Aperol Spritz yet, then all I can say is, ladies (and gents) you haven’t lived. This drink was the drink of the summer, known and loved by the most discerning drinkers. And today I’m going to share with you all, how to

HAVE YOU FOUND YOUR STAGE?

SHAKESPEARE once said: “All the world’s a stage”. And I happen to think he’s right. But what about our stages? The places where we shine. The places where we feel at home. The places where we come alive. Have you found yours yet? It’s a funny question to ask granted, but bear with me. Because the inspiration for this post came from the absolute legend that is Oprah and well, if
