Great Gift Ideas for Your Other Half

MONEY can’t buy you love. But that doesn’t mean we don’t all enjoy a treat every once in a while. There are certain times when a heartfelt present goes a long way. For the wary or uninitiated (yes boyfriends and hubbies, I’m mostly talking to you!), here’s a rundown of exactly when those times are, and how to choose the perfect present that will show you care. ——- The thoughtful

Why you should (mostly) ignore your critics

WHEN I said I was going to be a journalist one day,  I was told that I was foolish and that it was NEVER going to happen. But yet it did. When I signed up to a modelling agency at 18 but didn’t quite make the cut, I was told that particular ambition was probably over. Only for me to become a cover girl in my thirties. When I left my

Elsie Creates A Treasure Box

My two year old daughter is crafty. And I don’t mean in the sneaky sense, but in the ‘loves to paint, colour, draw and stick as much as she can’ kind of sense. It’s a wonder to behold and I have to say, her ‘craftiness’ is definitely catching. There’s nothing I love more than sitting down with her and helping or watching her get into her creative zone. Toddlers are

Chatting with my new best friend – Me

I’VE been talking to myself a lot lately. (Although to be fair, I always talk to myself, so no great news here.) But what is different though, is the way in which I am talking to myself. And the language that I’ve been using. Because I’ve been working on it you see. The words that I use for my internal dialogue. The phrases that I say. And I’ve been working

10 Of The Greatest Mistakes I’ve Made As A Woman (to date)

I’VE made so many mistakes in my life, I’ve lost count. I’ve cried so many times, I’m amazed I have any tears left. I’ve picked myself up from rock bottom on so many occasions, that I’ve gotten rather good now at getting on with life when the s**t hits the fan or when things go horribly wrong. But yet I still wouldn’t change any of it for the world. Sure

THE BRILLANCE IN BLOGGING AWARDS – MY VOTES AND A PLEA

IN the three or so years that I have been blogging, I am forever amazed at the wealth of blogging talent that I come across. Day in, day out. At the ability, determination and creativity of bloggers. Women (and men) just like me – who pour their hearts out, who write ferociously, who share parts of their lives – for all the world to read and see. So I love

Last night I tackled a fear (And survived)

LAST night I did something I’ve never done before. As an adult. I spoke. In public. To a group of people. About blogging. I know. Impressive huh?! ;-) I was nervous, I was frightened and I felt a little bit out of my depth. Last time I did any kind of real public speaking was way back at school, and I’m 35 now, so you know, it’s been a while. When

How kind are you? (Like really)

THIS morning I read a piece by one of my favourite bloggers James Altucher. I’ve mentioned many a time how much I love this guy’s work but seriously if you haven’t checked out his phenomenal blog yet (and subscribed) then please do because it is BRILLIANT. And life changing. (And I do not say that lightly.) Anyway. I was reading this particular piece when I came across this line, which
