35 ‘rules’ for women to live by (created by me)

  TOMORROW is my birthday. There will be cards, presents (here’s hoping!), perhaps even some delicious cake. I’ve already partied with my dearest friends to celebrate and I’m looking forward to dragging out the celebrations for as long as I can with Elsie, Jamie (the husband) and family and friends this weekend. (Well you’ve just got to!) And I will be 35. Blimey. I don’t know why (perhaps because this

I’M pretty miffed today. In fact make that very. Why? Well because I’m getting sick to the back teeth of receiving emails from brands who are offering me the ‘opportunity of a lifetime’ to ‘work’ for them and spend my time and use my talents and experience on promoting them. For FREE. Yes FREE. Who works for free? Do you? Does your partner? Would you like your children to have

A little red dress and a corker of a statement necklace

ON Saturday night I painted the city red. (Kinda.) As part of early birthday celebrations (my big day is on Friday) I did a night of glamour in Leeds with some of my dearest pals. And I did it in a rather lovely red dress. I take absolutely no credit for finding this amazing dress from Matalan of all places! Nope, it was all the work of a dear Twitter

Ideas for Elsie’s big bedroom (and for other toddlers)

I’M not quite sure how it’s happened already but it has. Elsie has grown up and so it’s time to move my not-so wee cherub out of her nursery and give her a ‘proper’ bedroom. You know with lots of room to play, where she can let loose and throw her toys about. Currently Elsie is in a teeny tiny room. Which is fine and has been perfectly lovely (if

Tell YOUR story with a bespoke bracelet

LIKE most of us, I absolutely adore jewellery. But in particular, I love jewellery that tells a story, that shares who we are and what we are all about. Don’t get me wrong I love a good piece of costume jewellery as much as anyone else, but it’s the little trinkets that once belonged to my Gran, the pieces of jewellery that my husband has bought for me over the

How to get ready quickly in the morning (and look amazing for the rest of the day)

  OK super mums, today’s post is especially for you. Yep YOU! You there, who struggles to find 5 minutes in the morning for yourself,  as you battle sleep exhaustion and a hungry, cranky baby. You there, who has to battle getting the kids ready before you can even attempt to put on your battle face. You there, who would love to look and feel like a million dollars for

Think you know yoga? (Well think again)

  TODAY on Pouting In Heels, Friday Five returns and boy oh boy, is it a good one! I am absolutely chuffed to bits, delighted, thrilled, excited (you get the picture) to have a dear friend of mine sharing some of her amazing knowledge with us all today which I think you are going to love. Zaz who has a wonderful and heartwarming blog Mama and More! is an incredible lady

NOW that I’m a parent, I have found that I’m much more passionate about trying to make the world a better place. A little corny perhaps but I’m deadly serious. Becoming a mum, having a child, exposes you to the greatest love that I believe any human being can experience. However it also exposes you further to the failings and cruelty that go on in the world. You look at
