Now ‘Pouting In’ The Huffington Post!

IT’S been an ambition of mine for a while. And Monday, finally saw it happen! Yes folks, a piece by yours truly, is only now on The Huffington Post! Wooo blinkin’ hoo! You can find it here if you fancy a read. It was a wonderful and slightly surreal moment, seeing the piece up there and I’ll happily admit, I did a little dance around the kitchen and celebrated with a

The cutest personalised photobook (EVER?!) and your chance to win one!

I LOVE photos. (And as some of you may know, I also love being in photos. *winks*) But more than anything I love capturing memories and taking photographs of Elsie. It’s one of my most favourite things to do. Sometimes if I’m feeling fancy and have got some time, I’ll drop and shoot with my snazzy SLR, but more often than not, I’ll snap a shot with my phone camera,

It’s time for #wisdominheels

SO, this week I decided to launch a new ‘thang’, just a little thing, a mini project if you like. For those of you who have missed it on my social media accounts, in a nutshell, I have decided to start a daily task in which every day I will share some words of wisdom. But not just any ol’ wisdom. Nope. Wisdom that only comes from the lips, minds

8 reasons to wear statement necklaces

MY love for dangly earrings has always been incredibly strong. It was my first jewellery love and I think I’ll now be forever partial to a bit of fabulous ear wear. Especially if it sparkles or is bold in colour. But becoming a mum for the first time over two and half years ago, introduced me to a new item of jewellery that I’d never really tried or had an

Why you should (mostly) ignore your critics

WHEN I said I was going to be a journalist one day,  I was told that I was foolish and that it was NEVER going to happen. But yet it did. When I signed up to a modelling agency at 18 but didn’t quite make the cut, I was told that particular ambition was probably over. Only for me to become a cover girl in my thirties. When I left my

Elsie Creates A Treasure Box

My two year old daughter is crafty. And I don’t mean in the sneaky sense, but in the ‘loves to paint, colour, draw and stick as much as she can’ kind of sense. It’s a wonder to behold and I have to say, her ‘craftiness’ is definitely catching. There’s nothing I love more than sitting down with her and helping or watching her get into her creative zone. Toddlers are

Chatting with my new best friend – Me

I’VE been talking to myself a lot lately. (Although to be fair, I always talk to myself, so no great news here.) But what is different though, is the way in which I am talking to myself. And the language that I’ve been using. Because I’ve been working on it you see. The words that I use for my internal dialogue. The phrases that I say. And I’ve been working
