WHY I LIVE FOR TODAY (AND OFTEN MAKE MISTAKES)

THROUGHOUT my life, I’ve been known to be pretty reckless at times. I’m a ‘jump in, head first’ kind of woman. I’m a leaper. I’m a ‘go for it’ shouter. When I was much younger I was attracted to danger. To excitement. And of course, to the bad boys. And as a result of this, many of my teenage years were challenging and by all accounts pretty damn awful. Because

ELSIE’S 3RD BIRTHDAY PARTY AT WIGFIELD FARM

IT’S not often I share our family life on this blog. But Elsie had such a wonderful party with her friends at Wigfield Farm on Saturday, that I’ve decided I just have to!

BEFORE I HAD ELSIE…

IT’S Elsie’s 3rd birthday today! *beams* Watching your child grow older is a funny ol’ bittersweet thing. In some ways it feels like the past three years has gone by in a blink of an eye. In others, it feels like I’ve packed more into the past three years than I have in the last thirty! I really wanted to write something to celebrate Elsie’s birthday, and so when I

SPONSORED POST: ‘PUT ON THE RITZ’ WITH YOUR SNACKS

  I LOVE a good crisp. In fact you could say I’m partial to them. Some like sweet stuff – chocolates, cake etc – but me? Well I’m all about the savoury. Tucking into a bag of crisps is a real treat for me. The crunch, the salt, the deliciousness of them! (I know you know what I mean). So I was pretty happy to hear that Ritz (the world’s

I DO SO LOVE A GOOD ‘LYST’ (WHEN IT COMES TO CLOTHES)

BY my own admission, I am far from being the most organised person in the world. But there’s one area in my world, one little area, which I am not chaotic with or about.
