What happened when the snow happened, today…

I HAD great ideas about how I was going to spend today. I was going to do lots of work. I was going to get my nails done (they’re in desperate need of a little TLC) and meet a friend for a cuppa. I was going to write a ‘serious’ blog post. I was going to get lots of s**t done. That was until I looked out of the window

WHAT A WOMAN TALKING ABOUT CHIPS TAUGHT ME ABOUT BODY IMAGE

A FEW months ago I was walking down the street in my local town when I caught a snippet of a conversation between a mum and daughter which took my breath away. It was an ordinary conversation, general chit chat and it went a little something like this: “Mummy, I’m so excited for dinner. I can’t wait to have fish and chips.” “That’s great darling, Mummy is hungry too. I

Books that could change your life this year (quite possibly)

READING is one of those great pleasures in life that sends me giddy with total and utter joy. I’ve always been a bookworm and although I don’t get nowhere near as much time as I’d like these days (who does?!) to sit down and curl up with a good read, over Christmas and New Year I did manage to work my way through a few belters. These books are so

FIRSTLY, before we begin, may I just take a moment to say Happy New Year! I know, I know, we’re a few days in to 2015 already but seeing as it’s my first post of the year, I just needed to get that off my chest. Now it is, let’s get onto the business of health shall we? Hands up, who’s popped a bit more chunk on their trunk over

2014 taught me…

TO believe in my OWN magic. Really it has. I was thinking how best to sum up this year and I struggled for a while. It’s been a real mixed bags of tricks for me on the personal front – some highs, some lows. But on a professional level, this year has been one of my best. If not the best to date. 2014 has been quite something from a

SPONSORED POST: Christmas only works if you believe in the magic

ON SATURDAY I went out for a festive afternoon tea in my pyjamas. Yep really. They were leopard print and really rather fetching as pj’s go. Naturally I wore them with super heels (the slippers stayed at home on this occasion) and accessorised them to the max. Well it is Christmas after all right? Anyway, it was a pretty special gathering. There was delicious food, the best Christmas cakes I’ve

Forget Santa, it’s tough being a Mum at Christmas…

I HAVE around forty Christmas cards to write this weekend for Elsie’s nursery friends. It’s tough being a Mum at Christmas. I have presents to buy, too many gifts to wrap, a stocking to fill and traditions to uphold. I have songs to sing, Christmas decorating still to do and a great big Turkey dinner to cook. I have presents to drop off, I have tidying to do, I have
