How a feathery lampshade made me realise that I need to be more daring…

IT’S true. I’m honestly not kidding. This weekend I had an epiphany. A light bulb moment. And it was all down to one feathery lampshade and a harmless weekend trip to B&Q. To give you the background, my husband and I bought a house a year or so ago and it needs lots of work. It’s potential is staggering but there is much to do. We have made progress though.

LIFE: Stuff I’ve fallen in love with recently. Discoveries and the like.

I WASN’T sure whether to put this post under my secrets or life category. After a little deliberation though, I opted for life in the end. (Because it’s what life is all about isn’t it?! Discovering stuff?) But anyway…I’m going off the point here. As it’s always good to show some appreciation, here’s a quick round up of little discoveries that I’ve loved or enjoyed recently. Or in other words,

FRIDAY FIVE: My favourite childrenswear companies

WITH Elsie now approaching her 2nd birthday (I still can’t believe how quickly it’s gone!) it’s safe to say I’ve become acquainted with some fabulous childrenswear brands over the past few years.

LIFE: Amazing advice (in tweets) from incredible women

SO today’s post is completely different than what it was originally going to be. Why, I hear you ask? Well, because last night I hopped onto Twitter before bedtime and found myself favouriting tweet after tweet from the Stylist Magazine team from their Life Lessons event held last night. Seriously, it got kinda ridiculous with the amount of favouriting I was doing! And then I thought, dammmm, this advice is

STYLE: Shopping, Asian style

LAST Sunday I entered an incredibly bedazzling sparkly world and didn’t want to leave. But leave I did a few hours later with two large bags crammed full of beautiful, ethic goodies! I visited the incredible Bombay Stores, described as the UK’s largest Asian Department Store. Situated in Bradford City Centre, I’d been told great things about this shopping mecca by my mother in law, for years, but had yet

FRIDAY FIVE: Five reasons you should trust your instincts

LATELY I’ve been thinking a lot about intuition. About why it’s important. About what it all means. About why it matters. By nature, I am an inquisitive soul. I’m also very prone to going with my instincts. Yes, I’ve got some good ol’ grey matter and I like to use it, but personally I find that when it comes to survival and tackling some of life’s biggest challenges, the best

YOUR SECRETS: How boudoir photography is helping to boost women’s body confidence

WOULD you pose naked for pictures? Or perhaps semi-naked with just your lingerie on? Think about it for a second. What do you reckon? Boudoir photography has been around for a while now. We’ve all seen it and heard about it. But can it really help boost women’s body confidence? Or is it just vanity gone mad? All these questions and more I posed to the lovely (and incredibly talented)

FRIDAY FIVE: 5 steps to pretty summer feet

  AS a Mum, a little spot of pampering is now a HUGE luxury these days. (I know some of you will be nodding along in agreement to this!) But with the weather turning warmer and sunnier (although admittedly not today) I decided I had to find the time to take my feet out of winter hibernation and treat them to a bit of tender loving care. Afterall, who wants
