Today I’m blue but I still stand, wearing red

TODAY I was going to write about style. That was my big plan. But then the General Election happened and I’m sat here finding myself unable to do it. To write about something seemingly so trivial at a time when what is happening to this country is so much more important. And so apologies to those who would rather I wrote about pretty things today, but today I am about

How to find your blog soul mate

THERE are millions of blogs out there, including this one. Millions of people sharing their thoughts and lives on a regular basis, for you to enjoy. But how do you find ‘the one’? The blog that speaks to you. The blog that makes you hang onto every word. Your blog soul mate. How the devil do you track them down and introduce them to your busy, hectic life? On this

YESTERDAY I got the wobbles. It was a wibbly, wobbly kind of day. Not in the physical sense of course (I am NOT a jelly) but in the emotional, spiritual sense. I’ve not had one of these feeling-out-of-sorts kind of days for a while. A long while in fact. So it came as quite a bit of a shock. What the hell is going on here, I thought?!  Doubt. That’s

FEATURED POST: Style Tips to Help Make you Look Slimmer

The best beauty products I’ve discovered over the past year (or so)

AH beauty products. They often promise so much yet deliver so little. However these little ‘beauties’ below are ones that you can rely on. Products that are the cream of an overflowing crop. Little belters that will most certainly help you feel and look amazing. In my humble opinion of course. Some of them have been sent to me by brands (I’m a fortunate woman that’s for sure) but most

Why do we have to do a) b) and c) before we can have a break? Why do women have an internal reward system?!

SORRY. I just need to load the dishwasher, then I’ll be with you. Oh and I best tidy up the little lady’s toys too, before I get to it. Still there? I’m coming honest, just one minute! I just need to quickly run upstairs, hoover up, stick a load of washing in blah, blah, blah. Why do we do it? Why DO we do it? Is it me? Am I

Oh my giddy aunt! Please vote for me in the BiBs (if you so wish)

YESTERDAY my Twitter feed went bonkers. And all because the shortlist for the BiBs 2015 (The Brilliance in Blogging Awards) had come out. And all because I’ve only gone and made the bloody shortlist! And all because it’s for the writer category too! Oh my giddy Aunt! So thank you. THANK YOU! To anyone, indeed everyone, who nominated me or put me forward to be considered. I’m absolutely gobsmacked but

‘Love’ly footwear from Brantano

ALL us parents know, that footwear for little ones can cost a small fortune. Their little feet and wiggly toes just love to grow, don’t they?! Which is wonderful and charming, but sometimes means you can go through an alarming number of pairs of shoes in as little as 12 months. And it’s not just shoes either, but sandals for those glorious hot days, wellies for the wet or snowy
