SPONSORED POST: THE FUTURE OF OUR KITCHENS WITH IKEA

  THE other night I was cooking tea with Elsie, teaching her to make lasagne. It was an ordinary moment in our ordinary lives, but yet for a moment or two, I could have almost closed my eyes and gone back in time. To one of the moments when I was cooking with my mum, as a little girl, back in our (then) state of the art eighties kitchen. Some

WHAT IF ELSIE MADE UP OUR HOUSE RULES?

  MY daughter Elsie is only two years old but her world is already filled with rules. “Yoghurt is only eaten at the table. We don’t jump on furniture with our shoes on. Whenever you want something, you must say please.” Etc, etc. And on it goes. She can do this. She can’t do that. Rules are important of course. They help me to teach her right from wrong. They

AN INTERVIEW WITH A MONEY EXPERT – ASHLEIGH SWAN

INSPIRATIONAL women come from all walks of life. And one thing I love to do on this blog, perhaps more than any other, is to share their wisdom and stories with you all. Why? Because women never get celebrated enough in my humble opinion and well, I’m doing my bit to try and change that. *winks* Today, I’m sharing a special interview with the wonderful Ashleigh Swan, a mum to

FEELING LIKE A LOSER (BUT BEIND OK WITH IT)

  I FELT liked I’d been punched in the stomach on Friday. For about five or ten minutes, I felt short of breath and just absolutely gutted. Because I couldn’t spot my blog name you see. I couldn’t spot Pouting In Heels on a list of blogs that had made the finals for a major blogging award. And I couldn’t spot Pouting In Heels because I hadn’t made it. Boo blinkin’

HOW TO KNOW WHEN YOU SHOULD PUBLISH A POST

  Today’s post is written with love, for the bloggers. So if it’s that’s not you, you may want to turn away now. I won’t hold it against you promise, although saying that I do think many of the principles here you could probably apply to any job or act, so feel free to stick around if you fancy. Anyway blogger pals, I have a confession. The other day I

MEET THE BRILLIANT ‘SO JUST SHOP’ (& WIN GORGEOUS JEWELLERY!)

  One of the loveliest things about blogging is coming across super retailers, whom previously I would never have heard of. And of course, sharing them with you! So Just Shop is one of these wonderful retailers. As soon as I heard about the site, as soon as I saw the stunning pieces and more importantly – as soon as I became aware of the ethos – I knew I

DO YOU THINK THE UNIVERSE IS TRYING TO TELL YOU SOMETHING?!

  I’M a firm believer in going with your gut when it comes to all matters. Because truly knowing who you are and remaining tuned into your instinct is important, is it not? “Ignore it at your peril!” (As a psychic medium told me last year.) Oh ‘eck! But sometimes, when we get the ol’ wibbles wobbles about stuff, we can lose our instinctive ‘ears’ and our sense of balance. Which
