A lady in red & a rainbow necklace

SOMETIMES you buy something so wonderful that you just can’t wait to wear it. Like this multicoloured beaded ‘rainbow’ necklace that I found in the online Topshop sale a couple of months ago. As soon as it arrived, I couldn’t wait to wear it but as it’s such a statement piece, it’s not – unfortunately – the easiest thing to wear. It needs a simple neckline. It needs the chance

Ridiculously simple tips to improve your writing

WRITING is one of my favourite things to do. It’s also how I make a living, so I like to think that when it comes to stringing a sentence or two together I know what I’m doing! ;-) Not everyone finds it easy though.

SPONSORED: Gorgeous ‘Duckface’ Anna Chancellor models for M&S

WHEN it comes to the British High Street, there is no greater shopping institution – in my book – than our amazing M&S. I say ‘OUR’ because I honestly cannot imagine a life without M&S.

QUITE  a statement to make ey? But seriously, this book, that I am about to share with you, is an absolute belter. A stonker of an interior design book that I just know you are going to adore. My life currently – besides juggling a demanding freelancing career with toddler parenting – is all about interiors, as I attempt to make our lovely house, which needs LOTS of work, into

Five common mistakes men make when it comes to love

WHEN it comes to love, it takes two to tango, as they say. Therefore, in the interest of equality, I think it’s only fair to point out the mistakes that men make when it comes to matters of the heart, as I did with the women last week. After all, we’re all in this together right?! Ladies, I am sure many of you will find yourself nodding along in agreement

9 tips to help you juggle freelancing with parenting

I’VE been freelancing for four heady years now and continue to love it, as much as ever. In fact, if I’ve ever met you, I have no doubt done a great deal of waffling on about how brilliant it is. (Sorry about that, but what can I say, it’s just FANTASTIC!) Freelancing enables me to work on creative projects that I enjoy, get paid well (and fairly) for my skils
