Yesterday this photograph of Cindy Crawford popped up on my Twitter timeline and it was so brilliant, so brave, so real, I just had to share it with my readers.

Being the ‘best mummy in the whole wide world’

How to fall in love with your body

LAST week I wrote a piece on body image and the importance of being mindful about the way you speak about your body. The response was amazing (thank you everyone!) and it really seemed to strike a chord.
