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

PLEASE COME & ‘DREAM OF DRESSES’ WITH ME TOMORROW?!

I AM nervous and excited today. Nervous and so bloody excited, because tomorrow, my new style To Dream Of Dresses finally goes live! *takes a deep breath* It’s taken ages to get it ready, much longer than I had hoped (yep, I’d completely forgotten just how much work it takes to get a blog off the ground!) but finally, finally it is all ready to go. Phew-eeee. I don’t want

20 THINGS YOU CAN DO ON A ‘NIGHT IN’

Long gone are the heady, exciting days when my weekends were all about going out on ‘the razz’. Now my idea of an exciting night is actually having a night in. (It’s the new ‘going out’ you know!) Tonight I am looking forward to doing exactly that. Curling up on the sofa, with a glass of wine in hand (and the bottle nearby) and relaxing. Ah bliss. It’s true, I

WHAT TO DO WHEN YOU’RE FEELING S**T (OR DOWN IN THE DUMPS)

We all go through it. Every single one of us. Times when we’re just feeling rubbish or to be frank, like utter s**t. Sometimes it can be just for a day or two, others time it can last longer. But how on earth do you stop feeling like the smelly stuff and get your self acquainted with a sweeter scent. Well, my friends, it’s a tough process. Because as you’ll

GETTING STARTED IN THE GARDEN – TIPS FOR THOSE WITHOUT GREEN FINGERS (LIKE ME!)

I’m not joking to say I’m thrilled to be bringing this post to you today. Why? Because if you’re anything like me, you will love gorgeous gardens but have no real idea of where to start with one. When we moved into our home about two years, our garden was a jungle. Truly a jungle. A jungle which hadn’t received much love for many a year. Thankfully, with a little

MOTHERHOOD – THE BIGGEST ENDURANCE TEST WE WILL EVER FACE?

  Over three years ago I ‘signed up’ to the greatest test of my life. An endurance test of mammoth proportions. A test that would challenge my body and my mind. A test that would shake me to my core. A test that would make me question everything I thought I knew. What test am I talking about? This one. The test of motherhood. This morning as I sit here,
