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. It is, after all, a craft and to be honest, even the best writers are always looking at how they can improve and make their work

Five things to try if you’re in a style rut

IT happens to the best of us. And even the most stylish. You’re looking your best, feeling confident, dressing well and then bam, without warning you soon find yourself in a style rut, bogged down and fearing there is no way out. And so what do you do? You panic. Or sulk. You begin to feel afraid of trying anything different and before you know it, you’re wearing the same

Five common mistakes men make when it comes to love

WHEN it comes to love, it takes two to tango, as they say.

FRIDAY FIVE: Five good reasons you should definitely give freelancing a whirl

THIS morning I realised that I have now been freelancing for four whole years. Four whole years of blood, sweat and freelancing tears! I can hardly believe it! I jest of course about the tears. In all honesty, it’s been rather incredible. I have spoken much about my love of freelancing before (see here and here) and today I can’t help but talk about it again, with it being my

FRIDAY FIVE: What I learned from BritMums Live

I CAN’T help but find it ironic, that after attending my first blogging conference last weekend, I have been utterly rubbish at blogging this week. (This world works in funny ol’ ways doesn’t it?!) Anyhow, for those of you who may have missed all the excitement, last weekend saw me attend BritMums Live for the first time, kindly sponsored by the wonderful Yellow Mellon. (If you haven’t already, do check
