LADIES, ISN’T IT TIME WE EMBRACED OUR AGE?

IN my life I am surrounded by beautiful, damn right fabulous women. The kind of women that make me proud to know them. The kind of women who make juggling modern life demands seem easy. The kind of women whom I know, you would all love. One of my good friends is one of these super women. Beautiful, clever, talented, funny and kind. She has a creative and demanding job.

A LITTLE BLACK DRESS (FOR A NIGHT ON THE RAZZLE)

ON Saturday night I gave a new beauty of a dress it’s first outing. For a night on the town with some of my dearest friends (here I am with Christina and Laura) to celebrate the lovely Laura’s birthday with some early birthday drinks. (Happy Birthday darling!)

I’ve read that blogs are pointless, boring and dull. I’ve heard people say they’re not interested in any blogs, because they’re only written by narcissists (yes, really). And I’ve even come across one blogger who

WHAT MAKES A GOOD MUM?

SOMETIMES being a mum feels like the easiest job in the world. Other days, it’s the hardest, most challenging, frustrating, damn right difficult job I’ve ever had. Or ever will. We’ve all been there haven’t we? No mum is immune from those god awful parenting days. The ones that force you to your knees in the kind of way only motherhood can. Not even the best mums. (Whoever they are) Not

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
