FRIDAY FIVE: Freelancing tips from yours truly…

I’VE been a very busy beaver this week giving my professional site a bit of a makeover. Quite astonishingly it’s coming up to three years since I quit my full time job and went freelance, so I decided it was definitely time for a bit of a revamp! I’m absolutely passionate about the joys of freelancing and fully supportive of anyone who has the courage to give it a try.

POUT OF APPROVAL: THE PRINCESS & THE FROCK

ONE of the most wonderful things about being a mum to a baby girl, is the opportunity to dress her up in all manner of pretty things. And I make absolutely no apologies for this. I love pretty things and I love my little girl, so it goes without saying that I want her to look wonderful. In a few years, if she wants to hang out in scruffy jeans

SASS: Define yourself…

THE world is full of labels but really when it comes to defining yourself, your opinion is the only one that matters. I was thinking of this last week, when my lovely blogger friend Jo from Dexterous Diva got in touch to ask if I would like to receive my very own personalised affirmation poster from her to which my reply was: “Hell yeah, that would be fabulous!” To create

FRIDAY FIVE: A few recommended reads…

IT’S Friday, so it can only mean one thing. It’s time for another Friday Five post! Unfortunately this week hasn’t quite gone to plan as I’ve spent most of it looking after a very poorly and tired little girl. Elsie has experienced her first proper cold so has needed many cuddles and lots of TLC. (Don’t colds just suck?!) So the post I’d been planning to do will just have

STYLE (Interior): A little peek inside Elsie’s nursery…

I can’t tell you how proud I am of Elsie’s nursery. After moving house when Elsie was just seven weeks old, we didn’t manage to get her nursery finished until a few months ago. Needless to say it was frustrating at times, however, like with all good things, it was well worth the wait! Elsie’s room – like all of the rooms in our beautiful but neglected old home –

SECRETS: My three favourite summer cocktails…

WHEN it comes to enjoying a tipple or two, a fancy cocktail is always my drink of choice. Decadent, elegant and packed with punch, cocktails are no longer passé and are totally ‘in vogue’. Forget the paper umbrellas, naff glasses and gawdy colours, these days cocktails are a sophisticated affair. They’re also a whole lotta fun! As summer is well and truly upon us, I thought I’d share with you my

FRIDAY FIVE: What NOT to do when you’re a new mum…(from a new mum, 11 months on)

MOTHERHOOD is a bundle of shoulds. You should be doing this. Your baby should be doing that. After being a mum for a whopping 11 months now (I can’t quite believe my little girl turns one in a few weeks!) I can safely say that I have never heard or been on the receiving end of so many shoulds. So whilst I wouldn’t dream of telling you what you should

LIFE: What’s your favourite holiday song?

THERE’S nothing like a holiday to recharge your batteries and make you appreciate the awesomeness that is life. And in my opinion, no holiday would be complete without some brilliant holiday songs. For me, whether I’m taking a well deserved break at home or abroad, I know that my favourite songs just enhance my feel-good holiday mood even further. And if I’m holidaying in the UK with my family (which
