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. And that my friends, is my wardrobe. My style – what I buy and wear. I adore clothes, always have since being a wee one, and I’ve learned over the years that the best way to always

DEALING WITH ‘LIGHT KILLERS’ – PEOPLE WHO TRY TO MAKE YOU FEEL SMALL

I WAS at University when my ‘best’ friend delivered a scathing comment. “What has happened to you? I mean look at you! You used to be so glamorous!” From that statement, you’re probably imagining all sorts right? Had I ‘let myself go’? Was I on drugs? Had I not washed my hair?! No, no, no.

Yes folks, I’ve been working for myself, freelancing, hustling and spinning many a plate to earn a decent living for the past five years. When I took the leap from the safety of employment into the scary unknown world of self-employment, I really

TWO LOVELY PLACES TO VISIT IN ‘THE LAKES’ WITH KIDS

A COUPLE of months ago, we spent a glorious few days in the beautiful Lake District. We stayed in a fabulous gypsy caravan (and oh and how we loved it!) and whilst we were there, we went to see a few local attractions as a family.

HELL YEAH, I’VE FOUND THE PERFECT BEACH BAG

IT’S true, I really have! Just think about what you look for in a beach bag… Room – to stash everything in. Waterproof – so your stuff doesn’t get ruined. Stylish – so you look sensational on the beach. (Naturally.) Tick. Tick. Tick. This beauty of a beach bag from Catherine Kelly has it all.  Which is unsurprising really when you consider that Catherine Kelly is an Australian fashion label.

“The knowledge that you have emerged wiser and stronger from setbacks means that you are, ever after, secure in your ability to survive.

“You will never truly know yourself, or the strength of your relationships, until both have been tested by adversity. Such knowledge is a true gift, for all that it is painfully won, and it has been worth more than any qualification I ever earned.”

10 COMMANDMENTS FOR A HAPPIER SISTERHOOD

WOMEN get an incredibly tough deal, in this world, at times. So it makes sense for us to stick together right? We all know this (or most of us do) yet how many of us can say we do this? Like really? How many of us can say, “sure, I know how to be a good sister!” I mean, honestly, can you? From a young age, we are taught that
